Upgrade your home with our beautiful, durable roofing options 

Whether you notice them or not, metal roofs are everywhere. You probably wouldn’t normally think to look at the roofing on a home, but if you take a drive down any road in any city, you’re likely to find a house or building donning some kind of metal roof.

But how much do you know about metal roofing? Did you know that metal roofing often requires little to zero maintenance after it’s installed? Or that you can choose from a variety of looks and styles, like standing seam or stamped metal roofing?

Benefits of Metal Roofing

There are a number of reasons to choose metal roofing over other materials, like asphalt shingles, tiles, or concrete. While metal roofing might be the best choice for some home or building owners, we understand that it’s not always to best material for every consumer. The best way to know if metal roofing is a good match for you is to consider some of the most common reasons people decide to buy.

Longevity

Metal roofing is specifically engineered to last decades longer than any other roofing material. Actually, many consumers ultimately decide to purchase a metal roof because it’ll be the last roof that they ever have to put on their home or business. Depending upon the type of metal material used, most metal roofs last 60+ years without any signs of degradation or corrosion.

Durability

When comparing different materials, like wood, concrete, metal, plastic, or glass, metal easily stands out as the strongest and most durable. If properly installed, metal roofing is designed to withstand:

  • Strong winds

  • Debris (leaves, sticks, etc.)

  • Rain

  • Snow

  • Hail

  • Mold

  • Mildew

  • Rodents and other animals

Not to mention, metal roof materials are often Class A fire-rated and noncombustible, meaning its fire resistance is the highest grade possible. This proven durability against common roofing threats is one of the fundamental reasons metal roofing is so popular.

Eco-Friendly

There are a number of reasons that metal roofing is environmentally friendly. First, most metal roofing is highly recyclable, meaning that any tear-off metal, old panels, or even manufactured excess scraps can be recycled and used in future products. These metal materials can either come as pre-consumer or post-consumer recycled content:

  • Pre-consumer recycled materials – Scrap content during the manufacturing stage that has been recycled for future use.

  • Post-consumer recycled materials – Excess materials that have already been in the possession of a consumer at one point in time and have been recycled for reuse.

Second, there are even some metal roofing materials, including aluminum, that are made of already-recycled metal. Nearly 95% of all aluminum roofing is made up of recycled materials. Third, many metals, like zinc and copper, are found in the environment or in the Earth’s crust, which means they can be naturally replenished and sustained over time. Make sure to specify ahead of construction and installation that recycled content is important to you.
