Metal Roofing Installation Done Right In Greater Indianapolis
Metal roofing goes back a long way. It has a great history, with a future that is only getting better thanks to the variety of metal shingles, shakes, slates and tiles now available. Metal roofing installation is an investment in roof longevity with little to no maintenance and roof repair. A favorite in commercial roofing, metal roofs’ popularity with residential homes is growing. If your reasons for a new roof include beauty and easy care, metal roofing just might be for you.
Early metal roofing installation was done with “standing seams.” Expert installers would fabricate the roofs on the job site using large rolls of sheet metal. Nowadays, typical metal roofing is factory-formed steel paneling. A panel’s edge is shaped as a ridge that overlaps seams during installation. A finish applied at the factory provides corrosion resistance and offers a variety of color choice.
Benefits Of Metal Roofing
Durable and long lasting. Compare metal roofing to asphalt shingle roofs. An asphalt roofing system wears out between fifteen and twenty years. Severe weather like strong wind, hail or winter storms can shorten that lifespan even more. Metal roofs, on the other hand, stand up extraordinarily well to bad weather. A new metal roofing installation will protect your home for forty to sixty years.
Hardy and Low Maintenance. Metal roofs of today come with a super-tough factory finish, making their durability exceptional and offering supreme resistances weather-related damages. Asphalt or wood shingling collects snow while a metal roofing system sheds it, preventing the formation of ice dams that can damage roof structure. Metal roofs don’t degrade under direct sun exposure the way wood shingling can. And metal roofing doesn’t lose its protective layer like asphalt shingling does, gradually shedding the protective granules that coat the asphalt. A quality metal roofing installation will exceed building code requirements for high wind resistance. And though hail damage (dimpling) may happen in the event of a severe hail storm, any dented panels are normally very easy to replace.
No More Noisy Than Shingle Roofing. The myth that homes with metal roofing are noisy during rainfall actually comes from barns and sheds that have had metal roofs put on directly over bare, open framing. In reality, metal roofs installed on homes are done with plywood or an oriented strand board (OSB) under-layer (called sheathing). This generally reduces noise during rainstorms to no greater than that of raining drumming on an asphalt shingle roof.
Variety in Style and Color. Metal roofing comes in a wide variety of color and style to suit whatever design you want for your home.
Metal Roofing is Naturally Green. A metal roofing installation has very good green value on many levels. First and foremost, because of its recycled content and how easy it is to recycle at the end of its long life. Consider, too, that approximately twenty billion pounds of asphalt shingles are tossed into landfills each year all over the United States. That’s certainly not healthy for our environment. Plus, a new metal roofing installation can very often be laid directly over a home’s old asphalt roof, preventing more landfill trash and preserving the old roof beneath the new one for as much as two to three times longer.
