Metal Panel Roofing System Installations
Metal panel roofing systems are another roofing system that is very popular in today’s roofing environment. Tarrant Roofing has many, many years of experience installing these types of roofs, so you know it will be done right. In the beginning of metal roof construction and installation, they were made up of corrugated galvanized steel. As time went on, options such as a blended zinc, aluminum, and silicone-coated steel were introduced as an alternative to the original galvanized steel mentioned earlier. These new materials have been called “Zincalume” and/or “Galvalume.” One of the nice things about the new metal is the option to make the surface display the raw zinc finish or it can be taken and made into a base metal underneath factory-coated colors.
Standing Seam Metal Roofing
Another option came shortly after that called “standing seam metal.” This type of metal roofing comes in a rolled form of many different widths. The metal is “seamed” together, as the name implies, using a unique tool specially designed for this purpose. It is run vertically straight up the panel to seal all the joints and prevent water intrusion.
Metal Tile Sheet Roofing
Another option that is available is metal tile sheets. Usually, but not always, metal tile sheets come in a stone-coated steel or painted whatever color the client desires. It serves many esthetically pleasing purposes. The stone-coated versions of the roofing panels are made from zinc/aluminum-coated steel with a special acrylic gel coating where the natural stones, which traditionally come with a ceramic coating, really set it apart.
Stainless Steel Roofing
If you are looking for a more basic option then you will find that stainless steel is also available to select from. Usually this option comes rolled, like the standing seam metal, just not seamed, but has a seam profile built in for roofing expediting. Individual shingles are also available in this option if you wanted to go that route as well.
Lead, Tin, Copper & Aluminum Roofing
The final metals also offered in metal roofing is lead, tin, copper, and of course aluminum. Tarrant Roofing also offers specialized coatings for metal roofs which extend the useful life of the existing metal on metal panel roofing systems for your home or business.
Advantages of Metal Panel Roofing
The advantages of metal panel roofing systems are things like longevity, durability, safety, environmentally friendliness, and energy efficiency. When it comes to longevity of a traditional asphalt roof (which is about 12-20 years), the metal roof has a clear advantage because they have proven to last more than twice to three times longer, at 40-70 years!
In addition to the longevity aspect of the roof, they are impressively durable. Being able to withstand hurricane winds gusting to speeds up to 140 miles an hour is just the start! These roofs will not crack, corrode, and are even impact resistant, able to withstand punishing storms.
Also, cost is kept low with these roofs over time because maintenance of these bad boys is non-existent. No periodic maintenance is required on them. As mentioned, they are also very safe–an important advantage. These roofs will not spark or ignite during a lightning strike or wildfire.
They are very environmentally friendly as most of the materials used are up to 95% recycled! AND, these materials are 100% recyclable when they come to the end of their life.
Lastly, they are very energy efficient as they reflect solar radiant heat very well, which can lower cooling costs by up to 25% in some cases.
