Our Contractors Offer A Guide to Metal Roofing Options

The durability and versatility of metal roofing make metal systems one of the more popular options for residential property owners throughout the region. If you’re considering a roofing upgrade in the future, you can learn more about the value of the metal roofing options from our contractors in this latest post.

Stone-coated metal roofing

Stone-coated metal roofing systems are a great option for homes in which a textured appeal is required. These systems look similar to premium architectural shingles and are designed to be extra-durable with the addition of special coatings derived from stone or concrete. As with other metal roofing systems, stone-coated roofs require minimal maintenance and can offer exceptional value over the decades to come.


Steel roofs are a great option for areas prone to high winds. And because they are fire-resistant they can provide additional safety value. For environmentally-friendly residential roofing work, steel is often used because it’s one of the most recycled metals in the roofing industry.


Aluminum is often used in roofing design work by metal roofing contractors when creativity and unique patterns are required. The metal is lightweight and more malleable than other metals, giving the designer greater flexibility. In addition, aluminum delivers high-level durability for a lightweight metal due to the protective sealing barrier formed when aluminum is exposed to oxygen.


Zinc is 100% recyclable, making it a preferred choice in environmentally-friendly roofing projects. And the material is also malleable like aluminum, enabling a great range of design styles. Zinc is popular for commercial projects due to its flexibility and its performance in a range of roofing applications.


In ideal conditions, copper roofing can last a century or more. Copper roofing can also help limit the sounds of rain and other impacts above the roof. But property owners considering copper systems should speak with their local residential roofing company first about the material, because of the potential for poor-quality copper to become dented over time.
