Metal roofing is increasing in popularity both in commercial and residential applications due to its long durability, ease of installation and cost. One of the first notable differences in a metal roof is its lower weight. On average a metal roof will weigh anywhere from one tenth the weight of a comparable concrete tile roof and comes in at one fifth the weight of a comparable asphalt shingle roof. The lower weight of a metal roof enables it t be utilized in a variety of applications that would exclude a heavier roofing product.
Metal roofing provides a superior barrier for just about any weather condition. Rain, extreme heat, sun exposure, high winds. None have shown to be significantly damaging. Metal roofing holds its color and design attributes through just about any environment and helps to cool the building in the summer and keep the heat in in the winter.
New technological advances have enabled metal roof manufacturers to construct metal roofing that mimics the most popular aesthetic attributes of other roofing systems such as copper, clay, wood or slate. The variety of colors, designs and styles that are available continue to make metal roofing systems an attractive choice for homeowners and commercial builders alike.
