Have you ever thought about upgrading your roof to something more durable, energy-efficient and environmentally friendly? Well, the solution is right in front of you! Metal roofing is quickly becoming the go-to option for homeowners across the country. Tired of the never-ending cycle of shingle replacement? Unlike shingles, metal roofing offers superior resistance against the weather elements, including wind, hail, and sun damage. This means that you can enjoy peace of mind knowing that your roof will stand strong against Mother Nature for many decades to come. In fact, for many homeowners, a metal roofing system is the last roof they will ever need to install.
People prefer metal roofing for serveral key reasons: its beautiful architectural appeal, over 100 colors and styles, its recyclability, and energy efficiency. But, the main advantage is its longevity. Unlike shingles, which typically have a lifespan of 20 years, metal roofing can last 50+ years. State Farm Insurance statistics have shown that metal roofs typically have a longevity of 40 to 70 years.The difference in longevity is significant, with shingles having one of the shortest lifespan of any roofing product.
Metal roofing requires skillsets that shingle roofers typically don't have. A metal roofing contractor has to draw a detailed material take-off in CAD (computer-aided design). In addition, it takes years of experience to learn how to cut, shape, and install the metal roofing system according to the Metal Construction Assocation (MCA) specifications. To ensure top-notch results, carefully choose a skilled and experienced metal roofing contractor. Look for a metal roofer with a proven track record of success, evidenced by a minimum of five years of installing high quality metal roofs. Trust us, quality metal roofers stand the test of time!

Metal roof coatings offer numerous advantages. Not only do they prevent leaks, they also significantly decrease energy consumption, fend off rust and corrosion, decrease maintenance expenses, and prolong the life of your roof.
However, with so many suitable options available for choosing the ideal metal roof coating for your structure, making a decision can be challenging. It's beneficial to comprehend the frequent issues that typically arise on metal roofs to aid in making the best choice.
You will want to choose the right metal roof coating to minimize color fading. The fading of painted metal roofing happens due to the reaction between the paint's pigment and substances such as water, pollution, and chemicals found in the atmosphere and in specific environments. This leads to the pigment breaking down and causing a change in color. With metal roofing, you get what you pay for. Higher end coatings do not fade like cheaper coatings.
Do Metal Roofs Rust? The answer depends on which type of metal and finish coating you choose for your metal roof. Corrosion and rust can occur on metal roofs. While they are two separate things, both corrosion and rust are essentially chemical processes that result in the disintegration of materials. Due to advancements in paint systems, finishes, and other technologies, metal roofs can resist oxidation and rusting throughout much of its lifespan. However, certain factors can impact the roof's rust resistance. For instance, bare steel is prone to rusting, and thus, if the edges of the panels are not cut neatly, there is a possibility for rust.
Galvalume Steel: Galvalume is a protective coating that is applied over steel to provide resistance to corrosion and rusting. Bethlehem Steel introduced Galvalume coating to the construction industry in the 1970s, and it has since become a staple in the roofing industry. Galvalume roofing combines three of the most essential metals used in roofing today - steel, aluminum, and zinc. The production process begins with a carbon steel base sheet, which is then continuously coated with aluminum and zinc alloys, resulting in a final coating composition of 55% aluminum, 43.4% zinc, and 1.6% silicone. This unique combination of metals imparts Galvalume with the beneficial characteristics of each, making it one of the most sought-after roofing materials in the market today. In addition to its superior performance, Galvalume also offers a distinct matte appearance.
Galvanized Steel: The use of galvanized metal products dates back to the 17th century, with widespread adoption of the "galvanization" process in the early 19th century. Galvanization involves applying a protective zinc coating to a steel or iron substrate through a hot-dipping process. Before the advent of Galvalume in the late 20th century, galvanized sheet and coil were widely used in the metal roofing industry. However, due to the exceptional durability and corrosion resistance of Galvalume, a significant portion of the metal roofing and wall industry transitioned to using Galvalume substrates in the early 2000s, with over 90% of the market making the switch. Galvanized steel is a carbon steel material that is coated with a protective zinc oxide alloy. The zinc coating provides protection for the panels and enhances their longevity. The final finish of the panels is achieved through the application of a resin coating, which imparts a smooth and shiny appearance, as well as resistance to scuffing and scratching.
