Metal Roofing

What is Metal Roofing?

Metal roofs can withstand storms, extreme weather conditions and fire hazards, while also increasing home resale value and decreasing energy costs by reflecting heat away from buildings.

However, metal roofing installation should only be undertaken by professional contractors as its installation process can be intricate and requires meticulous care in every step.

Installing metal roofing on a home can increase its resale value and enhance its appearance, while being durable, energy-efficient, and providing many design choices.

Metal roofs offer several distinct advantages over other materials when it comes to maintenance: no rot, mildew or termite issues and easy upkeep that could last between 40-70 years with proper care.

Employ a licensed and insured roofing contractor with extensive knowledge in metal roof installation for best results. An expert will know exactly how to correctly install or repair your new metal roof, which may help ensure its long term health and beauty.

Leaks in metal roofing systems can result from improper installation, thermal expansion and contraction, weak seams or fasteners, corrosion or poor maintenance. Regular inspections by an expert will help prevent leaks by pinpointing their source. They may recommend solutions such as adding expansion joints or applying reflective roof coatings; for those living near an ocean it’s also wise to choose materials which won’t rust over time due to exposure to salt air.


Metal Roofing Materials

Metal roofing is an attractive and cost-effective alternative to traditional roofs, offering fire, wind, and hail resistance as well as energy-efficiency benefits that reduce cooling costs by reflecting sunlight rather than absorbing it.

Materials used can include aluminum, galvanized or galvalume steel (galvanised/galvalume), copper and zinc.

The panels are fastened together using clips and sealant, then installed over an underlayment and plywood substrate. Because metal will expand and contract during hot or cold temperatures, plywood acts as an excellent buffer between it and damage.

An experienced metal roofer should use fasteners specifically designed to fit their material, and ensure it’s sealed correctly to avoid oil canning – the waviness or bulging of flat areas on metal panels that does not compromise structural integrity but doesn’t look great either! It doesn’t pose any immediate danger.

Benefits of Metal Roofing

Metal roofing is durable, energy-efficient and long-lived – qualities which add considerable resale value to any building or home.

As with any roof system, solar roof systems require periodic maintenance to keep them in good condition and avoid future issues that could compromise structural integrity or moisture infiltration. With the assistance of an established roofing contractor and proper care and maintenance, many issues can be avoided and avoided altogether.

Metal roof coatings provide additional protection from extreme temperatures, hailstorms and rainfall. Furthermore, this form of roofing is less susceptible to fungus growth – an essential consideration in regions with hot and humid temperatures.

Metal roofs also provide additional protection in areas prone to wildfire, since their material does not readily ignite. Professional cleaning should be conducted once or twice annually on metal roofs; those looking to take on the task themselves should wear protective gear and take all necessary safety precautions.


Metal Roofing Cost

Metal roofs can add significant value to your home and are an excellent investment. Lasting for up to 100 years and extremely durable, they can withstand severe weather like hurricanes and tornadoes while being energy efficient – cutting cooling costs considerably while reflecting sunrays back into space and blocking heat; making them suitable for wildfire prone regions.

Cost estimates for metal roofs depend on factors including style and material type; accessories; underlayment costs and pitch of the roof itself. Steeper sloped roofs tend to cost more than flat ones due to being more challenging for workers, and may need special safety equipment installed prior to being covered over.

Professional installation of metal roofs is an absolute necessity, to ensure proper placement and the appropriate material for climate. A roofing professional also knows which types of metal will suit their local climate best as well as provide recommendations regarding warranties against damages to protect against theft.
