Metal roofs are undoubtedly the most energy efficient, resistant, and lasting types of roofs you can install.
Metal roofs are extremely durable and long lasting, but the cost is greater than a traditional tile roof. Most metal roofs will last 40+ years and the high-quality paint and application the color will last 20-30 years without much fading.
Lightweight, durable, and corrosion-resistant, aluminum is a great option for almost any residential metal roofing system, including standing seam, shake, shingle, tile, and slate profiles. Aluminum will never rust, so it is an ideal metal for coastal applications and other areas where steel might be in danger. Aluminum’s propensity to resist rust gives it an extremely long lifespan.
Standing seam is probably the most recognizable profile of metal roofing for both commercial and residential projects. The popularity of standing seam has grown so much in recent decades that many people automatically assume that standing seam is implied by the term “metal roofing.” Standing seam roof profiles provide a very contemporary, distinctive look, and they’re chosen to complement homes of all styles. The key, though, to choosing the right standing seam metal roof depends on the actual dimensions of the roof. More often than not, residential roofs are smaller, more compact, and more complex than commercial roofs. For this reason, it’s advisable to select a standing seam roof with a relatively small panel width—usually around 12 inches. Wider panels will present a more commercial look to the roof, obviously a condition to be avoided when selecting a metal roof for a home. There are literally dozens of different “looks” and “feels” that can be achieved with metal roofing—from the traditional standing seam look to the old-world tile look or the beauty of shakes, to the more agricultural corrugated look. The variety of attractive residential metal roofing profiles is one of the great advantages of the industry. No matter what the style or look of your home, there is almost certainly a metal roof system out there that will complement it perfectly!
