Metal roofing is seeing a boom in popularity due in large part to its long life and durability. With recent advancements in coating and installation, many issues most closely associated with metal roofs, such as rusting and excess rainfall noise, are problems of the past.

Metal roofs are also the energy efficient choice. Where traditional asphalt roofs absorb heat, metal roofs can reflect the suns rays, keeping your home cooler. Additionally, high quality metal roofing can absorb the effects of hail and severe weather without ruining the integrity of the roof.

Some lower-grade metal roofing materials leave screw heads and rivet points exposed, making them vulnerable to weather and increasing the chance of rot to the external framing of your home. Be sure to choose a thicker gauge metal roof that hides bonding points so your new metal roof can last decades.
