WHY METAL ROOF PANELS?

Metal roofing offers a fairly long list of benefits. When compared to traditional shingle roofs, they are hands-down more durable. Metal roofs can last up to 50 or 60 years, while a standard shingle roof will need to be replaced in 15-20 years. And when it is time to replace them, the metal panels are recyclable, which contributes less material to landfills.

Metal roofs are customizable in a wide selection of colors and materials from minimalistic and cost-effective to sleek and modern. As the residential sector has adopted metal roofing for environmental reasons, newer decorative styles are becoming available as well.

Metal roofs are also more sustainable in other ways. As the cost of utilities continues to rise and we all try a little harder to lessen our impact on the environment, energy-efficient building materials become much more important. Depending on the region and personal habits, a metal roof on a residential home can decrease energy bills by up to 40%. Our standard paint finishes offer cool-color technology that reflect the sun’s rays effectively reducing air temperatures in a building by an average of 12 degrees, thus lowering cooling costs.

TYPES OF METAL ROOF PANELS

The term ‘metal roof’ is a broad term. While some recycled panels may contain a combination of materials, there are essentially four metals that are commonly used for roofing. Some materials vary by region, based on environmental factors like the salty sea breeze in coastal states or the humidity and high temperatures in southern states.

Common metals for roofing include:

  • Aluminum
  • Copper
  • Zinc
  • Steel

Aluminum is lightweight, durable, and non-corrosive. It is used widely across the US, and holds up especially well in coastal regions. Copper roofing is extremely durable and expensive. It is suitable for most environments but is not widely used due to the price. Zinc is another metal that is extremely durable and known for lasting a long, long time. And just like copper, it develops a patina and gradually changes color over time. Despite their long lifespan, materials like zinc and copper don’t catch on as a mainstream metal roofing option due to the color variances and higher cost. Steel is the most common metal roofing material. It is strong, inexpensive compared to the other three options and widely available from coast to coast in a variety of styles and finishes.
