Metal Roofing

Metal roofing is durable and attractive, if properly installed it can last a very long time requiring little maintenance. Metal roofing comes in standing seam roofing, panel roofing and panels made to look like tile, cedar or slate. Standing seam metal roofing is crimped or soldered together and panel roofing screws down.

Copper roofs have been used in architecture for thousands of years. Stainless steel, copper or zinc roofing materials will require very little maintenance over their lifetime. These materials can last over 100 years. Polymer coated metal panels also will last a very long time and require little maintenance until the coating wears off. When the factory finish wears off, metal roofs graded AG or Utility will need to be repainted with acrylic or polyester based roof coatings.

Metal Roofing materials:
• Aluminum, one of the longest lasting metals
