Residential Roofing Applications

Metal is the most energy efficient, sustainable material for residential roofs. It offers exceptional performance for homeowners that want a great looking roof that results in lower energy bills, lower maintenance and better longevity than traditional shingles.

 

  • How does a metal roof save me money?

    Due to their energy efficiency, metal roofs can reduce the cost to keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter. You could also potentially see a reduction in your homeowner's insurance premiums because our metal roofing panels are covered by UL Class A* Fire Rating, UL 90 wind uplift rating and our Class 4 UL Impact Resistance (hail) rating. This means that our metal panels are fire resistant and can withstand harsh conditions whether you experience snowfall in the Midwest or hurricanes on the coast. 

  • How long will my metal roof last?

    Because metal roofs are more resistant to extreme weather than traditional asphalt shingles and require less maintenance, they can last over 40 years, while asphalt shingles typically need to be replaced every 15-18 years.

  • How do I choose the right gauge?

    U.S. manufacturers express metal panel thickness as a gauge, with 22-gauge being the thickest and 29-gauge the thinnest of the traditionally-sold metal roof and wall panels. Approximately 80% of homes use a quality 29-gauge steel panel. However, more hail-prone areas could benefit from a thicker (lighter-gauge) panel. Lighter gauge (thicker) metal is also more forgiving of installation errors such as the over-tightening of screws, and it won't be as likely to transfer bumps and waves in the sheathing. Thicker trim pieces also lay more accurately, so some homeowners and contractors opt for 29-gauge roof and wall panels with a 26-gauge trim, a combination that is common and cost-effective. Our representatives can walk through your needs and decide which gauge is best for your home!
