Limited Maintenance Roofing Product
A metal roof will probably be the last roof you will ever install. It offers a great-looking, life-long alternative to other common roofing materials.

High quality roofing products are coated with high performance Kynar 500 or Hylar 5000 baked enamel finishes. These finishes offer outstanding rust proofing, and are warranted against fading for 20 years. Metal products are fire-safe, and insurance companies may offer discounts on premiums for installed metal roofs. Metal roofing is a preferred material in hail-prone areas since hail cannot penetrate the material. Certain styles and finishes can minimize the cosmetic imperfections introduced by heavy hail.
Energy Conscious roofing products
Metal reflects up to 70% of the sun’s energy, and may experience 34% less heat gain than composite shingle roofs. Metal may offer insulation-like effects, similar to R-11 insulation on top of the roof during sunny periods according to research by Florida Solar Energy center. Some metal roofing systems incorporate Ultra-Cool Metal Coating or similar competing products that further enhance the energy efficiency of the roofing system, saving the home and business owners even more money with lower energy costs.
Unlike tile roofing, metal roofing materials can typically replace a traditional shingle roof with no additional engineering and structural enhancements required.
When upgrading your wood shake or asphalt shingle roof to a low-maintenance lifetime material, metal is a singular value. The roof does not require upgrades to support the significant extra weight of tile. Many people believe that a metal roof might be noisy, but his simply is not the case. Research shows that metal roofing is not any noisier than traditional roofing products when properly installed.

Not only their light weight make them easy to install, but also does the fact that metal roofing shingles come in sheets or sections, allowing for a quick and simple installation process.
Energy Benefits of Metal Roofing
One of the greatest benefits of metal roofing is its astounding energy efficiency. The source of metal roofing energy efficiency lies in its finish an unpainted metal roof will reflect majority of the solar radiation that is absorbed by a roof and attic in a regular asphalt roof. Painted and granular coated metal roofing system both reflect solar energy and re-emit absorbed radiation such that it can also cool your home. In warm climates, a highly reflective and emissive metal roof is capable of re-emitting up to 90 percent of absorbed solar radiation, and in doing so, greatly reducing energy consumption. It has been calculated that the installation of a reflective metal roof can save approximately 40 percent of cooling costs throughout summer, and that an emissive metal roof can reduce the air temperature in your home by about 12 degrees Fahrenheit.
