More about Metal Roofing

When it comes to putting a roof on a home, or replacing a roof, the costs can be pretty astronomical. Unfortunately, this size investment can sometimes end up failing in less than 10 years. That’s why more and more people are turning to metal roofs. In most cases, metal roofs can last at least 20 years, and sometimes they can last as long as 50. Easily shrugging off the effects or rain, snow and wind and being completely immune to damage from fire, mildew, insects and rot, which plague other types of roofs, metal is a great choice of roofing material.

Metal roofs are also much lighter than traditional tile roofs. Most metal roofs run between 50 to 150 pounds per square (100 square feet). This is just a fraction of the amount of tile roofs – 750 pounds per square for tile and up to 900 pounds per square for concrete tile. One benefit of this lightweight material is that you can in some cases gain its benefits by laying metal roofs over the top of existing roofs without removing the original.

In addition, metal roofs are easy to install. Since they come commonly in large sheets of connected shingles, they can be installed faster than other types of roofs. You can expect to shave a day or two off the time of a traditional roof installation by opting for metal roofs.

There are a few drawbacks to metal roofs, but they mostly are a matter of personal taste. First, metal costs as much as most other premium roofing materials. It’s possible to save money if you go with a lesser material, but obviously you won’t have the benefits of metal. In addition, some people dislike the way that rain sounds when it hits a metal roof – it is significantly louder than with traditional tile roofs.

Metal roofs are also subject to marring and denting. One common cause of denting is from large hailstones. However, just walking on a painted metal roof can cause marring if a person isn’t careful. Needless to say, metal is also very slippery when its wet. Generally speaking you won’t need to worry about walking on a metal roof, since it’s unlikely to be damaged, but it is important to know nonetheless.

There are a few different types of metal roofing to choose from. Contact an experienced metal roofing contractor for advice on which type of metal roofing to select for your home and an estimate on the costs of installation.
