2 . Why Choose Metal Roofing Material?

While many people choose metal roofing material because of its durability, wind-and-weather proofing, long-lasting and security qualities, more and more people these days are installing metal roofs because of the wide variety of colors and styles which can be made to suit most architectural styles. While metal roofing can be more expensive than some other materials, this is balanced by its long life span, durability, ease of maintenance, and the good warranties offered by most manufacturers and installers.

Metal roofing is also very lightweight, so it can be installed an all sorts of buildings without any need to worry that the weight will exceed the existing load-bearing capabilities of the roof supports.

Metal roofing material doesn't rot, warp, curl, crack, peel, or break. It is resistant to hail, wind, fire, freezing, and thawing - in fact, snow will often just slide off a metal roof. Some types can, however, be chipped, scratched, or dented, and in these circumstances, the damaged area may need to be replaced. Because metal roofing comes in panels, if damage occurs, it is only necessary to replace the affected panel rather than re-roof a large area.
It is also low maintenance, usually comes with a long warranty, and may even reduce your house insurance costs and increase the sale value of your home. Because a metal roof can usually be installed over an existing roofing material, you can also save the expensive process of removing the old roof.

Modern metal roofs also come in a wide range of colors and styles to suit most buildings.

3 . What Kinds Of Metal Roofs Are There?

Metal roofs have long been popular for farm outbuildings and in commercial warehousing, etc., and most people think of the classic galvanized roof when they think of metal roofing. But, there are now several different sorts of metal roofing material. Some have built-in insulation, while others are laid over an "insulating blanket." Several different types of metal are used as roofing material - copper, steel, aluminum, and iron.

Iron metal roofs are used in some parts of Africa, because it is relatively cheap, but it has a tendency to rust easily and is not very popular elsewhere. Steel roofing material is very expensive and mostly used in industrial projects, although some homeowners choose it for its appealing "reflective" abilities and for its durability and security qualities. Steel metal roofs for homes frequently come in tile sizes, so it is easy to repair by just replacing one or more damaged tiles.

Copper roofing is very unusual and expensive. It also requires treatment with a chemical compound to keep it from corroding. Copper roofs are usually installed on very expensive homes where the cost of upkeep is not a consideration, and it does, of course, only suit certain types of architecture.
Aluminum roofing is generally the most popular because it is more affordable as well as durable and lightweight. It is rust resistant and still has the same reflective effects as other metals as well as being heat resistant.

4 . What Are The Benefits Of Metal Roofing Material?

Metal roofing material now comes in a wide range of colors and styles. It is very rust resistant and is light enough to be installed on most buildings without needing the existing roofing structure to be re-enforced. It is durable and lasts a long time without needing a lot of maintenance - warranties for metal roofing materials are often as long as 35 years, and some are even 50 years.
Metal roofs are heat resistant and incombustible, reducing the risk of damage by fire.

Modern metal roofs are not noisy when it rains - studies have shown that there is no greater noise level from metal roofs than there is for asphalt shingles or clay tiles.

Metal roofs don't rust - the metal is treated or galvanized to prevent the metal roofing material deteriorating through rust. In fact, most metal roofs will outlast other types of roofing material.

Some people worry that a metal roof will attract lightning strikes, but the manufacturers claim studies have shown that metal roofing material is no more likely to attract lightning than other type of roofing - they point out that lighting strikes the highest point in the area, and homeowners in lightning prone areas should consider installing lightning rods, if their property is at or close to the highest point, no matter what their roofing material is.

While metal roofing material has very little by way of insulating properties, its installation provides lots of opportunities to install insulation material over the sub roof in a new building, or between the existing roofing material and the new metal roof in an older home.
