There are two main types of metal roofs that can be installed at your home and both come with distinct benefits that can be enjoyed. When you look at some metal roofs, you will see a panel-style roof and in other cases, you will see a shingle-style roof. This is where your journey begins when assessing your home’s needs and cost associated with a new roof.
Easily identifiable, the pattern of panel roof is a ‘standing-seam’ roofing system that it predominantly created with sheets that have ribs, or a seam that is anywhere from six to 12 inches apart, and it the seam runs vertically along the roof. The roof has what architects call a commercial look that is clean and contemporary for use on many types of homes. If you have a cabin-style home or a modern masterpiece of engineering, this solution can be one that will enhance the curb appeal of your home while providing an effective cover for your home that will last for decades.
Metal shingles that are installed on the top of your home are quite different than their counterparts – metal panels. Pieces of metal are stamped into tiles to provide a Spanish-tile, wood shake or shingle or slate appearance design and are laid like regular shingles. Before the metal shingles are shipped from the factory they are coated with any type of finish you desire to re-create the effect of the slate of cedar.
Now that you understand the two types of metal roofing you can purchase, you should know what materials are the basis for the solution you choose. The roofing industry has chosen two types of metal for the roofing materials for your home and both offer benefits when either is chosen. Steel and aluminum offer the best of longevity and durability for your homes aging cycle. The cost of both types of roof is reasonable and they both hold their finishes extremely well. Steel can be galvanized and aluminum won’t corrode if the finish starts to peel over time.
Due to the nature of the material that a metal roof is made with – non-stick material – there is a possibility of a large snow release from a roof. A snow guard is the best way to prevent a large dump of snow off your roof. The guard helps keep snow on the roof to have it melt and create runoff that is controlled instead of a huge dump of snow that can create risk and hazard. On a metal roof, one to two snow guards is placed at intervals to help with snowmelt. It retains the snow and as temperatures rise the snow turns to water and drains off the roof. Snow guards can protect residents and pedestrians, limit damage liability, keep vehicles and equipment covered, protect landscaping, protect other elements of your roofing system, and reduce maintenance costs.
