Have You Considered a Metal Roof?

If you’re looking for a long-lasting roof that is lighter than tile, you may want to consider metal roofing materials.  In recent years, metal has become increasingly versatile and durable.  It’s compatible with all sorts of architectural structures and styles.  It works well with, commercial, industrial, and residential property.  The sheer amount of range you can get is staggeringly impressive.  Metal is cost-efficient, energy-efficient, and can last a lifetime.  If you haven’t considered it for your roof, it’s something worth looking into.

Metal Roofing is Quieter Than You Think!

A lot of people dismiss metal as a viable material because of concerns about the sound of rain hitting the roof and making

a lot of noise.  While this may have been an issue in the past, advances in the roofing industry have made some metal roofs quieter than shingles.  The loud standing

-seam metal roofs most people think of when they hear “metal roofing” actually get that loud due to a lack of plywood decking underneath them.  When we securely fasten a metal roof so that it’s flush with the plywood underneath, the wood absorbs the vibrations and there’s no loud sound.  We also use a special high-temp underlayment between the plywood and the metal.  High-temp underlayment is soundproof and prevents the metal from overheating and burning the plywood. Metal roofing materials can come coated with stone or asphalt, which can further muffle any sounds you may have concerns about.

The Versatility of Metal Roofing

You’re probably familiar with the traditional standing seam metal roof.  Did you know that some manufacturers make metal shakes and tiles as well?  If you’ve considered installing a tile roof and you’re not sure if your foundation can support its weight, Boral makes lightweight, stone-coated metal tiles with their BoralSteel line.  Do you really love the way wood shakes look, but local fire codes prohibit their installation?  Metal roofing materials can mimic shakes, too!  You can achieve virtually any look you want for your roof when you choose metal roofing materials.

Metal is more environmentally friendly than shingles and can last much, much longer.  It’s entirely possible to install a metal roof made from recycled materials, and then recycle those materials when it’s time to replace the roof again.  Because of all of these factors, a metal roof can even get you discounts on your homeowner’s insurance.
