EXPLORING METAL ROOFING
Metal roofing, as the name implies, is a roofing material crafted from metal. At Heritage Exteriors, we specialize in utilizing steel for our metal roofing projects.
ADVANTAGES OF CHOOSING METAL
Metal presents numerous advantages that make it a highly attractive choice. Notably, metal roofs boast an impressive resistance to high winds and exceptional durability, with a lifespan often exceeding 40 years. Additionally, metal roofs are lightweight and environmentally friendly, commonly made from recycled materials. The energy efficiency of metal roofs is another plus point. Beyond these practical advantages, metal roofing is available in a diverse range of colors and styles to complement any architecture.
WHO SHOULD CONSIDER METAL?
Both residential and commercial structures can effectively utilize metal roofing, as long as the roof isn’t of a low slope. Keep in mind, standing seam metal roofing is an ideal choice for homes because its concealed fasteners offer added protection from the elements.
It’s also important to check your city’s building codes before opting for traditional metal roofing, as some cities have restrictions on this style within city limits.
TRADITIONAL METAL ROOFING VS. STANDING SEAM METAL ROOFING
Metal roofing primarily falls into two categories: traditional metal roofing and standing seam metal roofing. Traditional metal roofing features visible fasteners when viewed from the ground, while standing seam metal roofing is characterized by vertical seams that conceal these fasteners.
IS METAL SUITABLE?
Metal is a strong option for both residential and commercial buildings due to its impressive resistance to high winds. Personal aesthetics also play a role in deciding on a roof. If the modern appeal of metal roofing suits your taste, it’s a great choice for your home or business. For those preferring a more conventional appearance, shingle roofing is an alternative worth considering.
