Metal Roofing

If you are considering buying metal roofing for your home, it’s very important to weigh the pros and cons of metal.

Metal Roofing Benefits

Expected life. Properly installed, a metal roof should last as long as the house, sealing out water, surviving high winds, and easily shedding snow. Metal is resistant to fire, mildew, insects, and rot.

Weight. Compared to the weight of tile, metal roofing is very lightweight. Most varieties run from 50 to 150 pounds per square.

Fire resistance. Because metal roof materials are noncombustible, they typically have a Class A fire rating. Just be aware that part of a roof’s overall classification depends on materials beneath the surface that could ignite in intense heat, too.

Maximum shedding of rain. Metal roofing is practically impervious to rain because of the way the panels interlock and because the surfaces are hard and slippery.
