metal roofing

If you thought that metal roofs were only for barns, then you have been smelling the hay for too long.  Today, metal roofing comes in a variety of styles and colors that can transform the look of your home, or fit in with the current look of your house, if that is what you choose.
  • Made of lightweight stone granule-coated steel, this clay tile looking roof gives you the Mediterranean-style home you desire without the weight that many homes cannot handle structurally.  In addition, it is much easier to walk on.  The scalloped roofing panels come in almost 20 colors.
  • Faux Asphalt. If you like or need the look of asphalt, then consider stone coated steel instead.
  • Slate looking metal roofing is made of an Alunar coating system that is embedded with a Teflon surface.  It is durable and both easier to install and much lighter than slate tiles.
  • Using copper roofing tiles allows you to use metal while still being “green.”  That is because it is 100% recyclable.  Over time, copper will patina and develop and aged finish.  There are a variety of styles to choose from when it comes to copper roofing including diamond and slate looks.  You can choose 12, 16, or 20-ounce tiles.
  • Steel roofs come in over 10 colors and you can get a steel roof that looks exactly like wood shakers but does not need the same upkeep.  Furthermore, steel roofs are made of 30% recycled material and can be completely recycled when replacement becomes necessary.
  • Diamond patterns. You can add a bit of sophistication to your home by installing a diamond patterned metal roof.  It comes in a variety of colors and textures.
  • Standing seam. This narrow, vertical seamed roof has an attachment flange that covers the adjacent panel.  This makes for a clean look and ensures protection from inclement weather.  Standing seam roofs offer a classic-style roof that is perfect for a range of home styles, including both traditional and modern.  They are designed for longevity against the weather.
  • Batten seam. Batten seam roofing adds texture and makes a home visually interesting.  This type of roof is available in over 30 colors and includes matching trim options.
  • Designed to resemble wood shingles, metal shingle-style roofing is available in nine colors. This product has a heavy grain texture as well as a durable coating.  Furthermore, each shingle has interlocking edges on all four sides.  Each shingle is nailed to the roof surface in order to provide superior protection.
  • Barrel vault. This stone coated metal roof is designed to look like concrete without the weight.  It provides better protection from the weather than clay and cement tile roofs.
  If you are in the market for a new roof because you current one is in need of extensive repairs or because you are building a new home, ask your roofing contractor what metal roofing options are available.
