Metal Roofing Solutions

The Snap Lock panel has been an industry standard for many years – and for good reason. This panel provides a lifetime of protection against all of mother nature’s elements.  Mechanical lock is a very dynamic panel system.  This panel can be formed into a radius or convex curvature and provides the highest level of protection against wind and moisture that Standing Seam can offer.

How are metal roofs better than traditional roofing options?  There are several benefits to having a metal roof.  Here are just a few to consider:

  • Energy Efficiency: Your roof is often the least energy efficient part of your home. Heating and cooling typically consume about 30% of your home’s energy, and half of that results from heated or cooled air lost through the roof. Metal roofs reflect the sun, which reduces the amount of heat penetrating the home. A reflective roof can reduce peak cooling demand by 10 to 15 percent, according to the Dept. of Energy. Some metal roofs can save up to 25 percent in energy costs, according to the DOE’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL).
  • Longevity: Some metal roofs come with warranties of up to 50 years, but can literally last for hundreds of years, whereas traditional roofs typically last 10 to 20 years.
  • Durability: Metal roofs aren’t as vulnerable to hail, wind and fire damage and some insurance companies even offer discounts on homeowner’s policies due to metal’s storm-resistant properties.
  • Safety: Metal roofs are practically fire proof, and will not support or spread a fire to other parts of the house, a permanent roof can preserve the integrity of your roof longer to allow a safe escape.

Even though the initial cost is more than a traditional asphalt shingle roof, when you look at the life-cycle costing, it’s much cheaper to go with a metal roof system than it is to go with a traditional asphalt shingle roof. They have great energy savings. They reflect the heat away to make your attic space cooler, reduce your energy use in the summertime and will increase the value of your home. Typically you will find a similar cost factor when it comes to metal and shingles. However, metal roofing can be more expensive depending on the color and panel style. It’s a smart investment overall when it comes to metal roofing. You may pay more upfront but in the long run it’s worth it.
