A Metal Roof Is Just What Your Home in Maryland Needs
At Roofing by Elite, we know by experience that when metal roofing is properly designed and installed, it is a great asset. It can reduce energy consumption, giving you an immediate return on your investment.
When our roofing contractors install steel panels over your home, you can select from a broad array of gauges, finishes, and colors, resulting in the look and beauty that you expect. Other advantages of metal roofing include:
Metal roofing has been estimated to last longer than the structures they are placed upon. You can easily expect yours to last at least 60 years or more.
Steel roofs have been recognized for their durability and how well they stand up to inclement weather. They have been noted to withstand wind gusts of 140 miles per hour. Metal roofing maintains its integrity through decades of harsh weather, standing up for everything from hail to snow and even fires.
More than one-quarter of the material used to build steel roof panels comes from recycled material. Should the need arise to replace the metal roofing, they are almost entirely recyclable.
By absorbing less heat than traditional asphalt shingles, they can keep your home fresher in the summer and warmer in the winter. All this while reducing your energy costs.
When you think about metal roofing, your mind probably goes back to the corrugated tin used to cover old barns in some idealized past. These days, that image is long gone.
Nowadays, you can select between roofing materials like zinc, tin, aluminum, copper, or steel and the variety available surpasses the options that traditional roofing shingles offer.
Your metal roofing materials can also be made to look like wood shakes, clay tiles, or slate. This means that your metal roof installation can mimic any look you can envision.
Steel Roofing Varieties
The great flexibility offered by metal roofing makes it a favorite among homeowners. Here are some unique aspects of a metal roof:
Traditional clay tiles are stunning and work wonderfully on Spanish and Mediterranean-style homes. However, they are very delicate and can easily break. When you install roofing tiles made from metal, not only will they not break, but you can even walk on them without worrying about it. Also, they come in more than a dozen different colors to make your vision come to life.
If you like the look of asphalt shingles but want ones that are longer-lasting while offering you the classic shingle look, stone-coated steel shingles are precisely what you need.
If you are set on the look of slate shingles for your home but have been told that your home would need additional engineering for the roof to support its weight, consider slate-look metal roofing that is not only much lighter but also easier to install. Slate-look metal roofing will leave you more than satisfied when you have your heart set on slate for your roof.
Wood on a roof has its limitations regarding longevity and the risk of catching on fire. If you are in love with the look of wood shakes, consider coated steel roofing in one of its ten colors. It will give you the look you seek without the hassle associated with wood shakes.
