New Trends In Residential Metal Roofing

Nov 16, 2007
It is quite unfortunate that if anyone even mentions the words "metal roof", the first thing that usually comes to mind is the old tin sheets of metal that you would have seen barely covering old factories and warehouses. However, it is highly unlikely to see these sights in residential areas and the reason for that is pretty simple. All thanks to the advent of technology, roof manufacturers are coming up with perhaps the most distinct and multi functional roofing types ever. The roofing industry is witnessing a growing popularity, all thanks to the Metal Roofing Alliance that is educating the customers as well as the roof manufacturers about the benefits of metal roofs.

Natural occurrences such as strong winds, hail storms, heavy rains, etc. are the main reasons why customers are opting for metal roofs nowadays. For appeal, roof manufacturers are introducing new trends, especially when to comes to residential metal roofing so that the roofs look good on any home design and at the same time protects the house from the above mentioned natural occurrences. The roof manufacturers are offering a wide variety of metal roof designs to their customers like the wooden shingles look, custom built metal roofs, etc.

One of the most important aspects that metal roofs capitalize on is the easy re-roofing process of a home. When we talk about metal roofing, steel roofs seem to be the most common of them all. The new trends in residential metal roofing are hugely influenced by the benefits of metal roofs. They are:

Thanks to the natural characteristics of metal roofs, they have the capacity of lasting atleast three times longer than other roofing materials like asphalt. This means that the life of metal roofs can be anything from two to four decades. Metal is always unaffected by the stains that are usually observed on asphalt roofs. A proper installation of metal roof means that your home will remain immune to any water seepage and rust due to high levels of humidity. Another advantage of metal roofing is that once installed, it can withstand the strongest of winds, up to 130-140 miles per hour to be more precise.

Due to its characteristics, customers expect metal roofs to be strong and for that reason the roof manufacturers accredit their materials (metal roofs) via tests like the UL 2218 Impact Resistance test. This test makes sure that these roofs are strong enough even in those areas which are prone to severe hail storms. In these areas, installing a metal roof is probably the best option available due to its durability and its sturdiness.

Metal roofs are perhaps one of the most environmentally friendly options. That's because, due to the durability of metal roofs, they enjoy a longer life compared to other roofing options. There is no chance of the roof getting infested with insects, which is mostly seen in the case of wooden shingles. This puts a stop to unwanted pollution caused by the spraying of insecticides and other chemicals.
