Metal Roofing MN
Metal roofing has truly come full circle during the past century. It is emerging as an outstanding roofing system for commercial buildings and homes alike. The future looks bright for metal roofing, and there are several trends that are fueling the growth.
Firstly, recent innovations in metal roofing paint systems and coating technology have significantly enhanced performance. The vast majority of today’s metal roofs use a Galvalume coated steel substrate which virtually eliminates worries about rust and corrosion.
And just as important, paint systems now have outstanding resistance to fading, chalking, and cracking under the most stringent conditions. These paint systems use cutting edge technology and inorganic pigments to provide the maximum protection against harmful UV rays.
Secondly, metal roofing is tough. When it comes to wind and weather resistance, metal roofing stands alone. Metal roofing meets the toughest wind, fire, and impact codes in the country. It is lightweight and installation is quick and simple. Choose from a variety of colors for aluminum or 24 gauge Kynar painted steel finishes all of which add beauty and value to your property. It has also been demonstrated that the home’s value increases with metal roofing. In some states, a metal roof can even lower your homeowner’s insurance premiums. Most metal roofs last 3 to 4 times longer than an asphalt shingle roof. Your metal roof will probably outlast you.
Thirdly, there is a genuine concern in helping to maintain and improve the environment for future generations. In this regard, metal roofing meets the criteria of recycled content, recyclability, and energy efficiency. Metal roofing is one of the most energy efficient roofing systems available and tests have shown that it can save you up to 40% on cooling costs.
In addition, it’s not asphalt based like shingles, which means its production doesn’t continue to fuel our country’s biggest addiction… oil. Although these are the major drivers, there are many other reasons why metal roofing is gaining in popularity.
