What is Metal Roofing?

Metal roofing is just as it sounds-it's roofing material made out of some sort of metal. At Heritage Exteriors & Restoration, we work with steel when it comes to metal roofing installation.

Benefits of Metal Roofing

There are lots of great benefits when it comes to metal roofing. For one thing, metal roofing is going to stand up well to high winds.

It's also really durable so it tends to last a long time-in some cases, over 40 years. It's lighter weight and a little more environmentally friendly since metal roofs are usually made from recycled materials. They're also more energy efficient.

As if these benefits weren't enough, metal roofing comes in a variety of color and style options.

Traditional Metal vs Standing Seam Metal Roofing

Generally speaking, there are two common types of metal roofing: traditional metal or standing seam metal roofing.

Without diving too deeply into the specifics, traditional metal roofing has exposed fasteners that are visible when you look at the roof. Standing seam metal roofing features vertical seams that cover the fasteners, effectively hiding them from view.

Are Metal Roofs Good for Willmar?

Metal roofing installation is an excellent option for homes and commercial buildings in the Willmar area since it holds up well to high winds.

Personal preference comes into play too-if you like the look of metal roofing, it's a great option for a home or business in Willmar. If you prefer a more traditional look, consider going with a shingle roofing option instead.

What Types of Buildings Should Have Metal Roofing?

Both homes and commercial buildings work well for metal roofing installation, as long as your roof isn't low slope.

One thing to keep in mind is that standing seam metal roofing works best for homes. It tends to last longer because those fasteners are covered by a seam, meaning they're not as exposed to the elements.

A second consideration when installing metal roofing on your home is your city's building codes. Some cities do have codes prohibiting traditional metal roofing (with its exposed fasteners) on homes that are in city limits.
