Metal Roofs
Manufactures create metal roofs from zinc alloy, stainless steel, copper, aluminum or tin. Each material varies in price and capability. For example, zinc alloy is medium priced compared to others. However, it is exremely malleable. Consequently, this characteristic makes them the contractor's primary choice for specialty metal roofing projects.
Significant Advantages to Metal Roofs
Contractors still regard metal roofs as one of the best materials to work with. Despite a few disadvantages of metal roofs, they are great investments for the following reasons.
Lengthiest Lifespan Possible
If properly installed, metal roofs can last 40-70 years. Correct metal roof installation involves providing proper allowance for material expansion and contraction. In addition, contractors must apply the special manufacturer roof material effectively. The protective coating adds a layer of protection, improving the capability of the roof.
Extreme Durability
Metal roofs, with the exception of aluminum, resist strong winds up to 140 miles per hour. Therefore, in the event of a storm with winds, they will stay in place.
Fire Retardent / Lightning Disbursement
Metal is an excellent conductor of heat and electricity. However, this does not make them fire starters. In fact, they are great fire retardants. The non-combustible properties of metal help slow down fires. It is a myth metal roofs conduct lightning. Metal roofs will not increase the likelihood of lighting striking. If, however, the home is hit by lighting, the metal roof will disburse the energy safely throughout the structure.
Disadvantages to Metal Roofs
Metal roofs are not as invinsible as most believe. They have their respective vulnerabilities just like any other roofing material.
One of the disadvantages of metal roofs is the cost. Metal roofs will cost twice or even three times the value of other roofing materials. However, the advantages outweigh the costs. Metal roofs can be considered a valuable investment.
Unlike asphalt roofs, single-ply membranes and shingles, metal roofs are great sound conductors. Especially if manufacture reccommended underlayments are not used. Even moderate rain showers will be noticed inside the dwelling without proper material being used.
Expands and Contracts
Just like siding, metal roofs react to temperature; they expand and contract. If contractors fail to install them properly, thermal expansion of the material can cause the structure and leak over time.
