Metal roofs are a durable and long-lasting residential roofing option. These types of residential (and commercial) roofing are both aesthetically pleasing and dependable.
Metal roofing systems often last a lifetime making them a worthwhile investment. Every day your roof takes on the elements such as harsh UV rays, winds, rain, hail storms and snow. A metal roof is particularly good at withstanding all of these weather conditions without showing wear and tear and can also aid in energy efficiency for your home. Most metal roofs are considered "cool roofs" meaning they deflect the hot rays of the sun, saving you on cooling costs during hot summer months.
Metal roofing is composed of eco-friendly and sustainable materials. Some of the most common materials used are zinc, copper, titanium, steel and aluminum with steel and aluminum being by far the most popular. The majority of metal roofs are made from 30-60% recycled materials. With materials such as aluminum, steel and copper, your metal roofing will be able to resist deterioration, such as cracking and shrinking. It is also usually coated with a layer of metallic coating that allows for a rust-free finish.
As with any roofing system, a metal roof is only as good as the installation of the system. As the installation process for metal roofs is distinctly different from shingle or tile, installation and repairs should be handled by a professional, trustworthy team like Monarch Roofing – and we offer a free roof inspection.
