Over the past decade, the demand for metal roofing has drastically increased. We are not surprised by this fact as metal roofs are an excellent option for homes with a steep or flat roofline. Metal roofs offer incredible durability, versatility, and fire-resistance that can’t always be found on other types of roofs.

If you are looking for a roof type that gives you options, metal roofs are the way to go. Metal roofs come in copper, aluminum, zinc, and tin, and allow you to choose a customized solution that meets the style, price point and strength you are searching for. We believe that other types of roofs do not offer this type of versatility.

Metal roofs have also been known to last between 40 and 70 years. Therefore, we recommend metal roofs to anyone who decides that longevity is a top priority when shopping for a roof. In addition, metal roofs can withstand harsh weather conditions and require very little maintenance.

As environment enthusiasts, we are also pleased to state that metal roof systems are energy efficient. Since metal roofs reflect solar heat instead of absorbing it, they can help you decrease cooling costs and save money on your energy bill.

While metal roofs are costly, they last longer than other types of roofs and are typically worth the more expensive initial investment. It’s also important to note that during rain, hail, or other extreme weather conditions, they can be noisy and dent, but still remain resistant.
