9 Benefits of a Metal Roof

No matter what kind of roofing style, color or finish you are after, there’s a metal roof to match. Looking for the charm of traditional cedar shake, or the simplicity of asphalt shingle?

Perhaps you are after the bold and distinctive look of clay tile or natural slate. Modern day metal roofing offers all of the style and beauty of these traditional roofing materials only stronger and more durable. There’s certain to be a metal roof style to match your home and neighborhood.

While the initial cost of a quality metal roofing is higher than roofing materials such as asphalt, it’s an investment that pays returns over a lifetime. A metal roof can last up to 50+ years or more with little maintenance, can often be repainted versus replaced, and may even increase the resale value of your home.

Here are the other benefits of metal roofing.

  1. Metals are Durable: When it comes to durability, it is more durable than other roofing materials. It can withstand wear, pressure, and damages. Some metal can sustain wind gusts up to 140 miles per hour. If you have metal roofing, it can withstand damage from wind debris, rain, snow, hail, mold, mildew, rodents, and other insects.

  2. Metal Has a Longer Life Span: I am sure you have seen old monuments, temples, and buildings that have metal roofs and walls. What makes it sustain for so long? It’s the metal used on it. You can expect to get at least 50 years out of your metal roof.
  3. Metals are Fire Resistance: Common causes of fire breakout are electrical short-circuit, wildfire, and lighting. Metal roofing can be a safety feature as well.
  4. Energy Efficiency: Compared to asphalt and other roof materials, metal reflects back more solar radiant heat. Less heat means less use of the HVAC systems. And less use of air conditioners results in less cooling costs. A metal roof can reduce energy costs up to 40% or more.
  5. Low Maintenance: The metal roof is resistant to damage caused by wind, debris, rain, snow, hail, mold, mildew, rodents, and other animals. With metal roofing, you need not undergo a periodic inspection every two months. Inspecting once a year is more than enough.
  6. Eco-Friendly: All metals are extracted from the earth’s surface. You can recycle almost all of the metals. As a matter of fact, nearly 95% of all aluminum roofing is made up of recycled materials.
  7. Metals are Lightweight: Compared to tile or concrete tile, a metal roof is very lightweight. Tiles weigh 750 pounds per square, and concrete tiles weigh 900 pounds per square. Whereas, metal weighs around 50 to 150 pounds per square.
  8. Metal Roofs Aesthetics: If you go see for yourself in the market, you will find over 100 different metal shapes, sizes, and colors. You can choose from tin, zinc, aluminum, copper, steel, or galvanized steel.
  9. Better Resale Value: Having metal sheets means no future replacement of repair. No repair and replacement mean a relatively maintained resale value.

3 Common Types of Metal Used for Roofing

There are lots of other metals that can be used and have been used for roofing. But these three metal roofing materials are the most popular ones. These metals gain lots of popularity for both commercial roofing and residential roofing.

  • Steel: The most widely-used metal roofing material in today’s world. Steel is strong, lightweight, and has long term durability. In addition, it is cheaper than any other metal.
  • Aluminum: Lighter than steel, but can be more expensive. Aluminum is best for homeowners who reside in and around marine and coastal environments.
  • Copper and Zinc: If you are looking for a stylish and unique design, copper or zinc roofing is for you. Compared to steel and aluminum, copper and zinc are costlier but the longevity, durability, and high level of corrosion resistance are outstanding.

Types of Metal Installation We Provide

At Front Runner Roofing in Louisville, KY, we currently provide two types of metal roofing installation methods.

Standing Seam is popular to our customers in Louisville, KY for its low profile and smooth appearance.

Standing Seam Metal Roofs

Standing Seam is a popular type of metal roofing where the panels are interlocked together at the edges to form a seam that stands vertically. In most standing seams you will find the clips and fastener are invisible, hidden beneath the surface.

In “the old days”, the standing seam was only used for factories and warehouses, but in recent years it’s getting extremely popular among homeowners too.

Exposed Fastener Metal Roofs

On exposed fastener roofing, fastener heads are visible on top of the panel. That’s the reason it is called Exposed Fastener. Though this roofing style is not as seamless as the Standing Seam, it’s still one of the most used residential roof systems.

FAQs About Metal Roofs

Metal roofs do not make a house hotter than other types of roof materials. Because metal roofs have a low thermal mass, they reflect light and heat rather than absorbing it like asphalt shingles.
