Metal roofing isn’t what it used to be. Today, you can get metal roofing that looks like shingles, shakes, clay tile, or stone, giving you a lot of flexibility. One of our specialties is standing seam metal roofing. We usually use high gauge steel and, for clients who don’t mind paying more for the unique look, we also do copper roofing.
Metal roofing can make a big difference on a home in small quantities. For instance, if you have an upper and lower roofline, metal on the lower roofline adds shine and class to your home’s exterior.
Benefits of Metal Roofing
Metal roofing has two big benefits—the unique, high-end appearance and durability. It also reflects radiant heat, helping you save energy costs during the day.
Metal is not a good insulator but leaving a dead-air space between the metal shingles and the roof deck can improve energy efficiency. This space also allows any moisture that gets through the roofing to dry out.
Rain and hail hitting a metal roof can be noisy so you may want to consider using structural barriers and insulations. Softer metals like copper may also dent.
