Thanks to our dedication to the craft, we now are able to provide our clients with quality metal roofing to match any budget and taste. While many consumers get caught up in the different esthetic looks and styles of metal roofing, it is important to pay even more attention to the material you eventually choose. Here are a few things to consider before making your final choice:
Conventional Metal Roofing Materials
Used for the majority of metal roofing projects, steel is an extremely sturdy and durable option. Its weight and sturdiness, combined with the fact that it is usually coated with zinc and sealed for protection against corrosion, makes it attractive for owners who enjoy not having to perform regular, and sometimes costly, maintenance. Adding to its desirability is the fact that it can be painted to match any home style – and most epoxy primers, as well as baked-on paint coatings, add even more longevity and protection from the elements.
In contrast to its steel counterpart, aluminum is a very lightweight material, ideal for homes with a wooden structure, and it does not rust. Similar to steel, it can be painted and coated to match or achieve any esthetic style. One drawback to aluminum roofing is that it is not as rigid as steel, and may dent more easily.
High-End Roofing Materials
For higher-end homes, and a slightly larger budget, there are several quality options available, such as:
Used as a roofing material for centuries, copper roofing is soft enough to customize, will not rust, and does not require any particular finish (eliminating the risk of peeling or scratching). Additionally, with time, it will weather into the attractive and well-known “verdigris patina” that we have become accustomed to seeing on some of the most beautiful architectural structures of the past, giving your home a refined and “upper-class” appearance.
- Stainless Steel
Stainless steel does not rust or corrode, providing your property with the utmost in durability and protection. Additionally, it can be terne coated to give it a natural-looking matte grey finish.
- Alloy products
These roofing materials are manufactured specifically for strength, durability, and graceful weathering. Costs depend on the specific materials, but you can be sure you’re getting the absolute best in quality.
Additional Benefits of Metal Roofing
In addition to esthetic and durability benefits that metal roofs offer, they also provide various other cost and environmental benefits, as well, such as:
- Reduction in Energy Costs: the reflective nature, whether naturally or through various coatings, of metal roofs, will effectively reflect heat away from your home’s interior, saving you money on cooling during summer months. Combine a metal roofing system with proper insulation and ventilation, and you will see your heating bills drop dramatically during winter months, as well.
- Environmentally Friendly: we strive to be as green as possible and, in order to accomplish this, we promote the use of recyclable materials and minimizing waste. Since the majority of metal roofing products are made with recycled materials and can be recycled after their lifespan, metal roofing is ideal for anyone who values our environment.
