If the beauty alone doesn’t convince you, the durability will!

SOME FACTS ABOUT METAL ROOFING

ADVANTAGES

Remarkable engineering and manufacturing methods have combined to create a roof that is as close to perfect as is possible.

  • You get all of the beauty of conventional roof materials.
  • You gain a much longer useful life.
  • Metal roofing is very light, and can be installed over most existing roofs.
  • The polymer finish is baked-on at the factory for an impervious bond.
    • The finish is an exclusive polymer that has been created to match the natural colors of wood or appearance of composition shingle. It is a baked and bonded coating that resists heat, chemicals in the air and UV rays. The panels retain their like-new color for years after conventional roofing has faded and discolored. The coating will not chalk, peel or crack. There is no unusual rain noise. The bond with the metal roofing is one of the strongest molecular couplings known to man. Even the granules are electro-statically applied, replacing the glue that allows traditional granules to scour off.
  • Installed in interlocking panels that seal tightly for unparalleled weather resistance and offer wind resistance up to 120 miles per hour!
  • As an added bonus, you can cut your interior air conditioning costs.
    • Light-colored roofs reflect the heat of the sun. Our metal roofing is also engineered with reflectivity – regardless of the color you choose. UV rays and solar heat are reflected away, rather than absorbed into the roof (and ultimately into the interior). The panels have been tested and shown to reflect as much as 46% of solar energy. A cooler roof = a cooler interior and electricity savings.

COST EFFECTIVE

Metal roofing is very light, and so it can often be installed directly atop your existing roof, either using the original sheathing, old composition (asphalt) shingles, and even over certain wood and wood shakes! We repair the current shingle problems, and then cover the entire roof with an underlayment of felt. As long as the substrate is structurally sound, you avoid the expense of tearing off your old roof, which is messy, costly and now unnecessary.

FACTS ABOUT STANDING SEAM METAL ROOFING

The standing seam metal roof has never been better! We install all-aluminum, technologically-innovative vertical panels, which interlock at the seam. This roofing is coated with an exclusive paint system that forms a barrier to any weather. It is more beautiful than any other vertical metal roofing. This durable and attractive roof is perfect on homes or commercial property.

The look is classic. It can give a home that “Key West” tropical charm. Seamed metal is perfect for replicating the old tin roofs on a turn-of-the-century home – on a rounded spire or a gable. The look is completely modern or perfectly historic. Seamed metal gives a commercial building a very professional appearance, and our products feature a color selection that add class to any business exterior. This may be one of the most adaptable roofs available! It can be installed atop many existing roofs.

If you already have a standing seam metal roof, you may know the benefits.
If you don’t, you will want to know that it is perfect for sloped, steeply sloped, and gently sloping roofs. Here is what makes the product superior:

They are twelve inches wide, the perfect scale for most architecture. The material and the coating carry lifetime guarantees – it will perform for 50 years or more. In fact, the standing seam metal roof manufacturer is so confident in the lifetime performance that the warranty is transferable.

You never see a screw or a nail. This stainless steel clip fasteners ensure a very secure attachment, which can withstand winds of up to 120 miles per hour. This unique system allows for the natural contraction and expansion of metal. As your standing seam metal roof adjusts to temperature change, the fasteners give it the freedom to expand and contract without loosening the attachment.

A white roof is the ultimate energy-saving “cool roof”. It will reflect sunlight, preventing the roof from heating up and lowering temperatures inside your home or business. Even darker colors are engineered to provide an appreciable level of reflectivity. Whether you choose white or creamy caramel, you will have a clean and contemporary look that complements almost any architecture. The standing seam metal roof has become a classic. It is a durable material with a luxurious look.

It will not chip, peel, flake or blister due to cold. Your standing seam metal roof is guaranteed to remain hail resistant, to deflect punctures, and to keep that resistance with age. The color is warranted to remain true – no fading – for 30 years after installation.

Many home insurers offer discounts for roofing that has the high fire rating of metal. You can be confident your home or business is protected by this non-combustible roofing material.
