Metal Roofs

Metal roofs are an attractive option because of their longevity, minimal maintenance, and energy efficiency.

Asphalt shingles are by far the most popular choice for residential roofing because asphalt shingles are durable, versatile and economical.
In addition to being practical and affordable asphalt shingles comes in hundreds of colors, shapes, textures and architectural designs.
Asphalt shingles are categorized as either organic-based or fiberglass-based. Organic-based asphalt shingles are manufactured with a base (also termed mat or substrate) made of various cellulose fibers, such as recycled waste paper and wood fibers. This organic base is then saturated with a specially formulated asphalt coating and surfaced with weather resistant mineral granules. Fiberglass-based asphalt shingles are manufactured with mat composed entirely of glass fibers of varying lengths and orientations. This fiberglass base is then surfaced with a specially-formulated asphalt coating, followed by weather-resistant mineral granules.

Advantages of Metal Roofs:

N

Longevity

Metal roofs can last 40-70 years, depending on the material. Traditional asphalt roofing materials have an estimated life expectancy of roughly 12-20 years.
N

Durability

Some metal roofs can sustain wind gusts up to 140 miles per hour, will not corrode or crack, and may be impact-resistant (depending on which metal you choose).
N

Safety

Metal roofs will not spark and ignite into flames during a wildfire or lightning strike.
N

Energy efficiency

Metal roofs reflect solar radiant heat, which can reduce cooling costs by 10-25%.
N

Environmentally friendly

Metal roofs not only have 25-95% recycled content, depending on the material used, but are also 100% recyclable at the end of their life as a roof. In contrast, most shingle tear-off waste ends up as part of the building-related waste stream — up to 20 billion pounds per year.
