Metal Roofs are known for their Resilience in Extreme Weather Conditions (High Winds, Violent Storms, Flash Floods and Fire.) Metal Roofing Systems and Metal Panels meet the Class A Fire Rating and Class 4 Impact Resistance Rating System with the American Insurance Industry.
ENERGY EFFICIENCY & SUSTAINABILITY.
Metal Roofing Systems are made from Recycled Metal and are 100% Recyclable when no longer in use.
. Metal Roofing Systems can be Coated in an Infrared Reflective “Cool Roof” Finish. This “Cool” Coating Reflects the suns infrared radiation, resulting in a Cooler Roofing surface. Leading to Lower Energy Usage and Costs.
Metal Roofing Systems can be Fabricated into a Variety of Roofing Styles (Standing Seam, Shingle, Shake, Fish Scale and Tile) And can be Fabricated in Any Architectural Style (Traditional, Transitional, Contemporary, Spanish, Ranch, Greek Revival, Jeffersonian and Many More.)
Copper is one of the more Aesthetically Pleasing and Durable Architectural Drainage and Gutter materials. Copper Drainage and Gutters are inherently Strong and Resistant to rust. Copper Drainage and Gutter Systems will naturally “Patina” over time. “Patina” or (Oxidation) is the chemical reaction to oxygen, moisture, climate and pollution; Resulting in the Beautiful shades of Green produced over several months and years. This “Aged” look is Highly sought after by Designers, Architects, Artists, Business and Homeowners.
Anti-Oxidant/UV Protectant Coatings can be applied to your Copper Drainage or Gutter System. These Protectants aid in the prevention of browning or Dulling to the Copper. These Systems will need to be cleaned and re-treated over time dependent upon your climate and environment.
Steel Architectural Drainage and Gutter Systems are usually galvanized to prevent rust. Although some Galvanized Steel Systems may eventually rust after 20-25 years; It is a popular Metal due to its Strength and Durability in regions of Extreme, Violent or Unpredictable Weather. (Tornados, Hurricanes, Floods, Fires, Hail and Violent Storms) Steel is slightly more expensive than aluminum, but Equally Cost Effective in the Long Run for some Regions.
Steel – Steel Roofing Systems are a popular choice due their Strength and Durability. A Steel Roof will Withstand impacts from Hail, High Winds, Fires and Violent storms. Most Steel Roofing Systems are Galvanized to Prevent Rust and Corrosion. A properly installed Steel Roof is Very Low Maintenance and Extremely Cost Effective. Today most Steel is made from recycled materials, allowing itself to be recycled again at the end of its use. A Steel Roof is considered a “Cool Roof” due to its ability to reflect the suns heat away from the structure.
- Galvanized Steel – This Roofing Metal is Steel (or Iron) coated with Zinc. This combination makes this Roofing Metal more Resistant to Corrosion, also improving its aspect.
- Galvalume Steel – Steel Coated with Aluminum (Zinc can also be added) to the alloy for increased Resistance Against Corrosion and Rust. Galvalume Steel is considered one of the best Metal Roofing materials due to its Longevity and Strength. Galvalume typically comes pre-painted from the factory – this professional paint application creates even more Protection. Galvalume is available in a wide range colors.
- Stone Coated Steel – These Roofing Panels are made of Steel coated in Aluminum/Zinc with a top layer of Ceramic Coated Stone Granules. This alloy is Extremely Strong, Stylish and available in a variety of Colors, Designs and Textures. Stone Coated Steel Metal Roofing is often used to emulate Historic or Rustic Architectural Styles.
Aluminum – Although more expensive than Steel Metal Roofing, Aluminum Roofing is Lighter Weight, Durable, Resistant to Corrosion, 100% Recyclable, Malleable and Energy Efficient. Aluminum can be easily Fabricated into Architectural Designs and Roofing Styles (Standing Seam, Shingles, Wood Shake, Clay Tile, Slate Tile, Fish Scale Shingles and many more.) Aluminums ease in Malleability and Fabrication lends itself to denting.
Copper – One of the most expensive Roofing materials. Extremely Durable; Copper Roofs can last up to 100 Years with Minimum Maintenance and are Highly Resistant to Fire due to the alloy content. A Copper Roofing System is a Favored Choice of Architects, Designers, Artists and Contractors due to its Aesthetic Beauty, Prestige and Durability. Copper Roofs will Patina (oxidize into varying shades of green over time) This Patina creates a Beautiful Old-World effect.
Zinc – Often used in Metal Roofing due to its Resistance to Corrosion, Malleability and Stylish look. Zinc is most often used as an additive in various alloys such as Zincalume (a combination of Steel, Aluminum and Zinc.) and Galvalume.
