If your roof needs to be replaced, we'll help you select the right material and specialized treatment options. Metal roof materials come in several types, but the two most common are standing seam metal roofs and screw-down panel metal roofs. Let's explore both: Standing seam metal roofing conceals all the fasteners. The panels are attached to the roof deck (the plywood or other wood beneath the outermost roofing materials) with clamps. The fasteners (the clamps) aren't exposed to the weather - and there are no nail holes in the roof where moisture could enter. Screw-down metal roofing is held together with screws. A lot of screws are needed to hold them in place, and they can leak moisture if not properly installed.
Commercial and residential metal roofs come in a wide range of materials. Among the most common types of metal roofing are:
For many people, metal roofing is the right choice, but there isn't a one-size-fits-all answer as to whether metal roofing is superior to asphalt roofing. Take a look at the following sections to learn more and make the right decision.
In general, metal roofing tends to last longer than asphalt shingles. Metal roofs typically last for 80 years (some are on the low end, lasting for 40 years). Metal roofs typically last between two and three times longer than asphalt roofs.
Typically, metal roofing materials are easy to clean - all you need is soap and water. (Don't use abrasive tools, which may scratch your roof's surface.) Metal roofing materials are typically protected with zinc or an aluminum/zinc mix at the factory.
In addition to increasing your building's resale value, metal roofs may also lower your insurance rates. This is because metal is fire-resistant. A metal roof typically comes with extensive warranties, as well as the ability to withstand challenging weather conditions like hail, heavy snow, and high winds. Having a roof that will withstand the elements will save you money on roof repairs and replacements.
