Metal. When we think of it, we think of strength. We think of something that can be molded by industry into whatever shape we need, and will then hold that shape against the worst of the elements. If you live in the Charlotte or Concord, NC and you want to make a long-term investment in your home or business location, you should try metal roofing.
Metal roofing is more expensive than asphalt or composite shingles, but endures much longer. Carefully maintained, it can last from 40 to 60 years. Some metal roofs have a warranty that guarantees a given amount of resistance to wind and hail. According to the Metal Roofing Association, metal roofing can also cut homeowners’ insurance premiums by up to 35 percent in some states. It reflects heat better than asphalt shingles, lowering air-conditioning bills. Nothing short of the Apocalypse can make it catch fire. And if the metal is set completely flush against a wooden deck, then when it is hit by rain, hail or tree branches it will make less noise than almost any other material.
There is more than one form of metal roofing. There is 5V crimp, which consists of metal panels, and standing seam, which consists of rolls of metal fastened together along vertical seams. Metals which are often used in roofing are copper (which weathers without varnishing), 24-gauge steel (which needs a zinc coating to prevent rust) and 0.032 aluminum. Even those who prefer the look of a more traditional roof can take advantage of the benefits of metal roofing. With the aid of paint and finishing, metal can be made to look like shingles, tile or whatever else you want.
