Metal Roofing Video
Metal roofing is a popular alternative to traditional roofing materials; it's lightweight, fireproof and durable. With no roofing shingles to fall off, metal roofing requires little maintenance other than an occasional painting to maintain its appearance. Metal roofing materials can be painted a custom color to match any building design.
Practically Speaking, Metal Roofing Is a Great Choice
Overall, metal roofing is gaining in popularity because it is:
- durable and fireproof
- easy to maintain--there are no roofing shingles to worry about
- available in a variety of styles and metals
- long lasting compared to traditional roofing shingles--often 30 years or more
- may qualify for special insurance discounts
A pitch metal roof can be ideal in a region that receives heavy snow, as it allows the snow to slide right off.
Metal roofing is priced from $120 per 10-by-10 foot square standing seam sections up to around $170 for corrugated steel, making it an affordable alternative to traditional roofing shingles. It can be difficult to install, however, so it pays to find a qualified metal roofing installer.
