Questions and Benefits Pertaining to a Metal Roof
How Long Do Metal Roofs Last?
*One of the most well known benefits is longevity. Our metal roofs come with a 50 year warranty, however they are designed to last much longer than that. You will be able to have confidence that this will be your final roof, and will be able to pass security along to other family members behind you. Having a metal roof eliminates the need to replace a failed asphalt roof every 10-20 years.
I have a low sloped roof, do I have to settle for a rubber roof?
* If you have a roof with a slope lower than a 2 1/2 pitch, there is no need for a rubber roof. On most low sloped roofs we can fabricate and install a Mechanical Lock Roofing panel that is designed and weather tight for low sloped roofs.
Are Metal Roofs Environmentally Friendly?
* Protecting the environment is very important to us at Modern Standing Seam Metal Roofing. Metal roofs are Environmentally friendly and are also sustainable in Green Construction. Metal roofs are fabricated with recycled materials and can be 100% recycled at the end of their lifespan. Unlike asphalt roofs where properties can slough off, and overwhelm landfills on a yearly basis.
Are Metal Roofs Safe?
*It is reported that having a metal roof will help aid in the prevention of fire. As metal roofs are non-combustable, they will not spark or ignite in the case of lightning strikes and can assist in keeping fires contained.
Are Metal Roofs Energy Efficient?
*Metal roofs are one of, if not the most energy efficient roof on the market today. It has been reported that a metal roof can save your home up to 40% in energy costs as well as add extra insulation to your home. Metal roofs reflect the suns heat and UV rays, instead of absorbing it which leads to energy savings.
I would like solar panels on my roof, what is the best application for that?
*A Standing Seam Metal application is the best type of roof to apply solar panels on to. Unlike traditional asphalt roofs or any other type of shingle, that requires penetration for application, Standing Seam panels allow for solar panels to clamp directly onto their seams. This allows for zero penetration into the metal or decking, which could later lead to leaks and or erosion.
I heard metal roofs are loud when it rains?
*Metal roofs have evolved significantly over the years. Our panels are applied directly onto your roof decking, eliminating the gapping between the panel and the decking. The elimination of the gapping allows for your metal roof to sound just like any other roof when it rains.
