Metal Roofing Contractor Orlando
Metal Roofs are Superior to Other Options When You Consider the Following:
When installed properly, your new metal roof could last as long as your house does by sealing out water, surviving the high winds, and shedding snow with ease. Choosing metal as your next roofing material will make it more resistant to fire, mildew, and insect problems. The warranty on your metal roof may vary, but many companies support their products for between 20 and 50 years, while the top layer paint finishes will usually have a 30-year limited warranty which varies based on region.
When compared with clay tiles of 750 lbs per square (equal to 100 sq. ft.), or concrete tiles of 900 lbs. per square, a metal roof is considered lightweight. Most types of metal roof materials will run anywhere from 50lbs. to 150lbs. per square. Typically, metal roof materials will come in sections of shingles or 12” – 36” wide panels. Some types of metal roofing materials might be applied over the existing roof without having to tear down and add further structural support.
Our experienced roofers will install these quickly, so if your roof is stripped with a storm on the way, then shortening the install process by one or two days may have a major advantage. Since the metal roof is lighter weight, you’ll be able to save more on engineering costs and when building the supporting structure out.
Since metal roofs are non-combustible, they usually will hold a Class-A fire rating, which is the most resistant, although a portion of your roof’s classification may depend on materials underneath the surface that may catch flame near intense heat. Plenty of metal roofs applied on top of a combustible material like wood shingles will carry a Class-C rating.
