What Are The Advantages Of A Metal Roof?
Metal Roofs Are Long Lasting
Metal roofs typically last 40-50 years. However, with proper maintenance and care, some metal roofs can last as long as 70 years. Due to rust-proof coatings, they don’t corrode or crack, and there is less check of a leak than with traditional roofing systems. Many homeowners say that longevity is their primary reason for choosing a metal roof!
Metal Roofs Require Less Maintenance
While we still recommend having your roof serviced annually to protect its longevity, the list of services required for a metal roof is relatively short! Key maintenance items include treating any scuffs, scratches, or corrosion, and replacing any aged fasteners.
Metal Roofs Are Fire-Retardant
Most premium metal roofs are given a Class A Fire Retardant rating, so you don’t have to worry about your roof catching on fire if lightning were to strike.
Types Of Metal Roofs We Install
Corrugated Metal Roofing
Corrugated metal is galvanized steel that is rolled into a pattern. The two most popular styles of corrugated metal are U-panel and R-panel. Although patterns can vary, corrugated metal is stacked like tile. The corrugation runs perpendicular to the grooves in the steel. This process enhances the strength inherent in galvanized steel.
Corrugated metal is a cost-effective choice since it’s prefabricated. It is lightweight, corrosion-resistant, durable, and easily transported. Corrugated metal directs water off of your roof making it an excellent solution for your building.
PBR, short for purlin bearing R panel, is a high-quality, versatile metal roof panel. The panels have a larger overlap section that completely overlaps the next panel. This creates more metal-to-metal contact which yields a stronger connection and more weather-tight metal roof panels. Ideal for low slope applications, PBR offers high quality with ease of installation.
PBR metal panels are low-maintenance and durable when compared to conventional roofing. The PBR panel profile adds extra protection against the elements by including a purlin bearing leg that overlaps between panels sealing out moisture and wind. These panels can be installed either on a solid substrate or open framings such as metal purlins or wood support beams.
Standing-Seam Metal Roofing
Standing seam metal roofing comes in a variety of seam types: snap-lock, mechanical lock, and batten panel. Each one interlocks differently and they provide different protection. Depending on your climate, you can choose a specific seam type to protect your building.
Because of the interlocking panels, the seams stand up higher than the roof itself. The standing seam is an aesthetic feature that makes standing seam metal roofs appealing and also protects the fasteners. Standing-seam metal roofs offer a wide range of colors, lengths, widths, thicknesses, and seam types. Of course, they are durable and cost-effective.
Tuff Rib Roofing
Tuff Rib panel is an economical, structural, light gauge through-fastener roof and wall panel that is an excellent choice for commercial, industrial and agricultural applications. Manufactured with high tensile steel to allow for greater load capability, Tuff Rib is a jack-of-all-trades for metal roofing, siding, and modern accents. Originally designed for traditional and agricultural buildings, this ribbed steel roof panel is built to last and stands up to wind, hail, snow, and rain.
