What’s the Advantage 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 Are Energy Efficient
Metal roofing reflects much of the sun’s heat and energy. While conventional shingles absorb much of the sun’s heat, metal roofing reduces cooling energy costs by as much as 20%. The coating used on modern metal roof panels incorporates special pigments that reflect the sun’s energy and release heat that is absorbed throughout the day
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.
Types of Metal Roofs We Install
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.
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.
Metal Roof FAQs
What’s the cost of a metal roof in Pittsburgh?
The average cost of a metal roof is anywhere between $20,000 to $35,000 for a 2000 square foot home. This will depend on the size and slope of your roof and the type of metal you choose to install. Our roofing specialists will be happy to go over the different options with you and find the right match for your home.
Are there any disadvantages to metal roofs?
While metal roofs are advantageous in many ways, there are a few things to consider. Metal roofs are typically more expensive than other roofing systems, but you will likely recoup your investment in the long run because you won’t be replacing your roof as frequently. Color matching can also be difficult in the long term, but your roofer can help you find a close match. If these drawbacks are not dealbreakers for you, the pros greatly outweigh the cons when it comes to installing a metal roof!
