All You Wanted to Know About Metal Roofing

Posted by at 9:00 AM

If you're planning on putting a new roof on your Twin Cities home, have you considered metal?  Metal roofing has grown over the years from 2% to 12% of the total roofing installed on homes throughout the U.S.  And the cost has become very competitive. The price of asphalt roofing continues to rise, while the price of metal has stayed much the same over recent  years. If you're considering metal, consider this:  Quarve Contracting can not only can install the metal roofing of your choice, but install it so the seams are virtually invisible to the eye, even up close.

Standing Seam Metal Roofing - A Great Option for Flat or Shallow-Pitch Roofs

This concept of metal roofing has been approved and updated throughout the years, and a lot of the older homes still have metal roofing over their bays or porches. They continue to stay strong, even if they are over 80 years old but have been painted a few times throughout the years. The standing seam roofs come in an extensive choice of different colors to provide the best look for your home or business property.  Warranties for metal roofs are generally long-lasting.  Some standing seam metal roofs come with a warranty that covers this paint on the roof for up to 35 years to ensure that it does not fade or discolor during this time. If you have a flat surface, standing seam metal roofing can take care of the problem and last for numerous years compared to a tar or rubber roof that lasts for no more than 10.

The metal roofing that you get can even replicate asphalt, concrete, shingles or cedar roofing types.  So not only will your roof have the benefits of metal, you can have the look of another less durable roofing material.  Metal shingles are not porous so they will not break down, have mold or mildew, or crack over time. They have a Class A fire rating and require little to no maintenance.   If you like the looks of genuine cedar shakes, tile, or slate, with metal roofing you're able to give your home a ritzy feel for at least half the price.
