The Top Metal Roofing Experts Dutifully Serving Aurora
Metal roofs have many distinct advantages over other roofing materials. Their durable, lightweight, and fireproof materials are easy to install and come in a wide variety of colors and styles to choose from. Integrity Pro Roofing in Aurora can achieve virtually any look you want for your home with your new metal roofing.
Types of Metal Roofing
Metal offers a wide spectrum of variations and materials under its umbrella, all of which can be installed by Integrity Pro Roofing. These are some of the most popular metal roofing varieties:
Despite its cost-effective appearance, aluminum roofing has many benefits that homeowners and business owners alike are attracted to. Durable, corrosion-resistant, and eco-friendly, aluminum roofing also doesn’t rust, enables smoother water runoff, and can reflect the sun better than other metal roofing materials, making it highly energy-efficient.
For roofing in hail-prone areas, steel roofing is a popular, super durable, and low-maintenance choice that ranks high on the longevity scale. Like most metal roofing materials, heat reflection also contributes to reduced energy use and costs.
As a roofing material, copper is one of the rare metal roofing alternatives. But its unique finish is one of its stand-out features and one that is bound to increase the home’s curb appeal. Given its lightweight and malleability, it can be fashioned in a variety of ways to mimic tiles, shingles, brick, etc.
Standing Seam Metal Roofing
Standing seam is the most popular iteration of metal roofing. Standing-seam metal roofing in essence raises the seams beyond the level of the actual roof, thereby creating panels that run from the ridge to the eaves of the roof. Its interlocking system ensures that a watertight seal is created, and also makes it one of the strongest, most reliable roof systems on the market today.
Corrugated Metal Roofing
Corrugated metal is made from galvanized steel rolled into a wavy pattern. This corrugation process enhances the strength of the material, making it a tough metal roofing option. While often seen in industry builds and less on homes, its lightweight, durable, and water-shedding features are making it a viable option for the home.
One of the most popular options for residential roofing is metal shingles. Its major appeal is the combination of all the great characteristics of other metal roofing materials while giving homeowners the ability to customize the look and feel to their preference. Metal shingles can mimic the finish of more premium roofing alternatives like slate, clay, concrete tiles, and cedar, at a fraction of the cost, and with strength, durability, and longevity guaranteed.
Advantages of Metal Roofs
Metal is one of the most reliable roofing materials on the market for both residential and commercial roofs. These are some of the characteristics that make it a great roofing option:
Metal roofing stands firm against all types of harsh weather conditions. It is even able to withstand debris and animal activity. The impact of severe weather in the Aurora area makes metal roofing an excellent choice for durability.
Maintenance for metal roofing is so easy that you could almost install it and forget about it. Like any roofing material, regular maintenance is a must. But the general upkeep on a metal roof is so limited, that compared to other solutions like shingles, concrete, or tile, you’ll have a worry-free roof and save on costs in the long run.
The durability and ease of maintenance contribute to metal roofs lasting a very long time – anywhere from 50-70 years. That means that you may very well never have to replace your home’s roof again in your lifetime.
Barring special cases, a quality metal roof will be made of anything from 35% – 95% recyclable and/or recycled material. Despite the long lifespan of a metal roof, when it eventually does come time to remove it for whatever reason, the entire thing will be 100% recyclable, instead of being dumped in a landfill. In addition, its heat-reflecting capabilities mean the homeowner will save on home energy costs too, by reducing the need for cooling in the home.
While your metal roof will cost more upfront to install, it will cost less over its lifetime. This long-term investment is well worth it considering the reduction of maintenance and repair costs over the roof’s lifetime – a far cry from alternatives like asphalt shingles. Even the warranties on, metal roofs tend to be exceptional.
