Metal Roofing Installation Questions and Options
May 11, 2019
Often, we don’t really think about the protection that hovers steadfast above our home and family. With stormy weather rolling in, this is the perfect time to make sure your roof is up to par. Plus, it may be time to simply make a change. If you’re considering metal roofing installation for your new roof, Xterior LLC can help!
Metal Roofing Questions and MythsFirst, let’s consider metal roofing in general and explore some questions and myths. Commonly, when our customers opt for metal roof panels instead of shingles, they worry about the weight. Since metal roof materials come in thin panels or sheets, weight is not a factor. However, steel is a little heavier than some of the options such as aluminum. Thanks to thin panels that reduce weight per square foot, both steel and aluminum are more lightweight than asphalt shingles. Keep in mind, metal roofs are still tough and durable! Another customer concern is whether or not their metal roof panels will lose color. Ultimately, to protect your product, it’s imperative to obtain warranties. At Xterior, we offer great manufacturer’s limited lifetime warranties. Therefore, you gain peace of mind along with your roof installation by our team of professionals. Finally, some folks are worried that a metal roof will attract lightning. Fortunately, this is not the case. In fact, a metal roof acts as a faraday cage of sorts and actually dissipates electrical charges. Moreover, metal roofs are fire-resistant. Additionally, they are not subject to damage from insects, mold or rot.
Metal Roof OptionsNot only does a metal roof offer practical benefits, design options are abundant as well. From copper, steel and tin to aluminum and zinc, materials abound. Each of the materials has its own benefits. Essentially, it helps to sit down with a contractor and discuss which installation fits your needs best. For instance, steel is sturdy but is susceptible to rust in a coastal environment. Installation of aluminum may be a better bet than steel in this case.
