Why Choose a Metal Roof?
Metal roofing is beautiful and is available in a wide range of colors, textures, and configurations.
Metal roofing will withstand inclement weather – high winds, hail, snow, and rain – better than other roofing material. Metal systems have withstood winds up to 150 miles per hour in tests. They have even survived hurricanes and other windstorms when other materials have failed.
A quality OVMR roof is warranted to not rust through for 40 years and should last the lifetime of the owner, with proper installation.
Metal roofing does not warp, split, crack, or rot. It is impervious to termites and pests. The high strength steel, panel configuration, and panel size of a typical metal roof adds structural integrity to the roof that is not provided by other roofing materials.
Most metal roofing systems carry fire ratings that will reduce the homeowner’s insurance rates.
A properly installed metal roofing system is virtually maintenance free over the life of the roof.
Metal (steel) roofing weighs from 1/10 to 1/2 as much as competing materials. This translates to lower transportation and construction costs.
Metal roofing is highly acceptable in today’s environmentally sensitive society. It is clean (particularly important to water collecting roof systems), it is 100% recyclable, and it eliminates the growing and expensive problem of disposal.
Cost Effective Application
A metal roof typically requires less labor to install as compared to shingle, shake, or tile roofs. Exceptions to this rule would be complicated roofs requiring extensive sheet metal work.
Lower Lifetime Costs
Metal roofing reflects and absorbs heat more efficiently than competing materials, translating to lower cooling costs. Furthermore, it sheds snow and water for extended life.
