Metal roofing can be a wise choice for roofing material if you’re looking for durability in extreme weather conditions. We will help you determine if the high up-front cost is worth the benefits of it’s strength against fire, extreme wind and weather.
Metal roofing has a proven track record and has made a recent resurgence led by the demand for durability. Typical warranties range from 30-50 years and can vary by material thickness, coatings, and installation methods used. Metal roofing is fire resistance and often carry a Class A fire rating. Metal roofing is often manufactured using recycled materials and is 100% recyclable at the end of its service life. Many residential metal roofs including standing seam, metal shingles, and ribbed panels are manufactured to withstand extreme wind and weather conditions. Metal roofing sheds rain and snow better than most other roofing materials which can help prevent ice dams during extreme cold.
While metal roofing does hold a higher up-front cost, the longevity of the product and proven track record make it a great choice for roofing.

3 types of metal roofing
Aluminum roofing is lightweight, durable, corrosion resistant and energy efficient. Most aluminum roofing is pre-painted and is usually formed in the shape of other popular shingle roofing products such as wood shake or asphalt. Aluminum is typically made from 95% recycled materials.
Propanel is made from galvanized steel in variable thicknesses and can be installed, painted, or unpainted. Propanel is the most economical type of metal roofing and one of the easiest to install, however it’s not as durable and long-lasting as other types of metal roof systems.
Standing Seam metal roofing comes in many fade-resistant colors and has a more aesthetically pleasing look than propanel metal roofs. The tall 1 3/4″ seams add a distinctive look. Advantages of standing seam is that it will not rust, crack or rot and resists streaking or staining. Standing seam metal roofing can be used on the entire roof but also looks nice as an accent on just one prominent gable or smaller dormers and window over-hangs.
