What’s the Advantage of a Metal Roof?
Remarkable Energy Savings
Many of our customers have been surprised to learn that several metal roofs come with coatings that are Energy Star® listed and certified by the Cool Roof Rating Council. Modern metal roof installations help reduce energy expenditures for cooling, saving you money from your energy bills.
Metal roofing panels come with a metal coating system that is an additional powerful layer of protection. In the mid-Atlantic region, it’s not unusual to have severe storms in the weather forecast. A professional metal roof installation will help you to rest easy knowing that your home is well-protected.
An Environmentally Friendly Choice
Unlike steel or tin roofs of the past, modern metal roofing is typically made from recycled materials and is almost completely recyclable. A metal roof has one of the longest lifespans of any roofing materials, and with the ability to recycle it at the end of its service life, you can feel good about not contributing to landfills.
Types of Metal Roofs We Install
Homeowners looking for a reliable metal roof should consider an aluminum roof. They are lightweight and thin, yet still very durable. Because it is malleable and flexible, it cuts down labor costs and is considered one of the more budget-friendly metal roof options.
The outer layer of aluminum roofs react with oxygen which, while it seems counterproductive for a roof, actually seals and protects the inner layers of the roof. Even though this corrosive quality is what makes an aluminum roof durable, it is not the most stylish on its own. However, you can add on a painted coating over time for better curb appeal.
For a truly green roof option, look no further than copper roofing. Cooper roofs are 100% recyclable, although you are unlikely to have to worry because they can last 100 or more years!
Copper is known for its beauty and strength making it a wonderful material for roofing. It has a high thermal conductivity, so it will keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Who doesn’t love energy savings?
Steel roofs are another great green roof option as most of the steel used today is recycled. Once commonly found for commercial builds, it is now also often considered for residential homes. Because it is easy to install, it’s quite affordable compared to other types of metal roofs.
Another advantage of steel roofing is that it is highly customizable. It can be made to look like other roofing types while offering a little more durability against severe weather conditions, including storms.
Corrugated Metal Roofing
Corrugated metal roofs stand up well in high-wind regions and come in a variety of patterns. The two most popular styles of corrugated metal are U-panel and R-panel. This type of metal roof comes pre-fabricated, so it is one of the more
With an exposed fastener system, corrugated metal roofs require an inspection every few years to retighten the fasteners.
Corrugated metal is galvanized steel that is rolled into a pattern. The two most popular styles of corrugated metal are U-panel and R-panel. Although patterns can vary, corrugated metal is stacked like tile. The corrugation runs perpendicular to the grooves in the steel. This process enhances the strength inherent with galvanized steel.
Corrugated metal is a cost-effective choice since it’s prefabricated. It is lightweight, corrosion-resistant, durable, and easily transported. Corrugated metal directs water off of your roof making it an excellent solution for your building.
Standing-Seam Metal Roofing
Many homeowners prefer the look of standing seam metal roofs for their sleeker appearance compared to corrugated metal roofs. You can choose from a variety of seam types: snap lock, mechanical lock, and batten panel. Each style not only looks different but also provides different advantages of protection.
Another difference between standing seam metal roofs from corrugated metal roofs is the fasteners. Standing seam metal roofs are designed with the fasteners below the panel surface, eliminating an exposed fastener system.
