IS METAL ROOFING COST-EFFECTIVE?
Residential metal roofing is generally made of steel, aluminum, or copper. Although this does mean it is more expensive than traditional shingle roofing, metal roofing does have a much longer lifespan. In order to prepare for installation, rolls of 24- or 26-gauge steel sheets are given a metallic coating to prevent rust, followed by a baked-on paint finish. This paint finish can be customized to a color that fits the overall look of your home. Steel roofing products are coated with either zinc (galvanized) or a mixture of aluminum and zinc. The coatings are offered in multiple thicknesses—the thicker the coating the longer the life, and the higher the cost.
Life Cycle Cost
Metal roofing has been proven to be more durable than most other roofing systems available. As a result, metal roofing has low life cycle costs.
Metal roofing is on the leading edge technology with a wide variety of finishes, designs and colors that provides greater energy savings compared to most other non-metal roofing products on the market today.
Metal roofing is sustainable and can contain significant recycled content. It lasts longer than most non-metal roofing and is 100% recyclable at the end of its useful life.
Fire & Wind Protection
Metal roofing is extremely fire resistant. In addition to that, metal roofing systems can also be designed to withstand extremely strong winds.
