Types of Metal Roofing

Metal roofing types are extensive. It’s a popular option for its versatility and customization options. Some of the most common metal materials used in roofing are:

Each has its own set of benefits, so it’s important to seek the advice of a metal roofing company to understand your needs and choose the best option for you. Despite the differences, there are still many reasons why metal roofing provides advantages over other roofing types and is a smart choice.

Why Use Metal Roofing?

While metal roofing is right for some purposes and people, it’s not always right for all. Knowing some of the best reasons to choose a metal roof can help you determine if it’s something you should choose.

Long-lasting

Metal roofing lasts for decades. It’s not uncommon to see a metal roof last for sixty years or longer if it’s maintained properly. For your life in the home, you may never have to replace the roof if you choose metal.

Durable

Metal roofing holds up well against hurricanes, rain, high winds, mold, and mildew. Even debris and animals don’t seem to faze it. The impact of extreme weather in the Bradenton area makes metal roofing a durable choice.

Easy to Maintain

Maintenance on a metal roof is so easy that you can nearly install it and forget about it. Sure, regular maintenance will always be a factor, but the upkeep on a metal roof is so limited, that compared to other solutions like shingles, concrete, or tile, you’ll hardly need to complain about it.

Eco-Friendly

Metal roofing is recyclable, making it environmentally friendly. If parts of your roof need to be replaced, metal roofing specialists will tear off the old pieces and use the scraps for other projects. In fact, your brand-new metal roof may already be made from recycled materials.

Most metals are found naturally in the earth, so while it’s recyclable, it’s also more economical to source more materials from our planet without damaging the resources. It doesn’t involve unhealthy practices like cutting down trees.

Great Value

While your metal roof will cost more up front to install, it will cost less over its lifetime. You’re making a 60+ year investment instead of purchasing something that will only last 20 years. The metal roof cost is well worth it compared to paying for asphalt shingles three times in the same period.

Metal roof warranties also tend to be exceptional. Check with a local metal roof contractor for the options near you, but you’re likely to find that you can cover your metal roof for all kinds of things like leaks, damage, and more.

Types of Buildings Using Metal Roofing

Metal may seem like an Roofs for Life, Inc material better suited for commercial purposes, but you would be surprised by the types of buildings that benefit from metal roofs. Their use is widespread, and if you begin to pay attention, you’ll see them almost everywhere on:

  • Schools
  • Restaurants
  • Churches
  • Hospitals
  • Hotels
  • Stores
  • Office buildings
  • Homes
  • Barns

The list goes on. It has excellent weather resistance, making it an ideal choice for commercial purposes in many locations. It can keep patients in hospitals safer than other roof types because of its durability.

More and more homeowners are choosing metal because as an individual, your budget is limited and metal roof costs are lower than other materials over time. No project is too small, and metal can be aesthetically pleasing if you want to utilize it for an overhang, an awning, your workshop, or another creative project.

Metal Roofing Maintenance

While metal roof maintenance is minimal, it’s important to conduct regular inspections to ensure there’s no damage or to see if you need to repair or replace it. Twice a year, you should inspect your metal roof by:

  • Cleaning off dirt and stains that the rain didn’t wash away
  • Cleaning drains and gutters
  • Removing any branches or other objects that may be caught in the roof
  • Removing any other metal objects touching the roof
  • Checking for scratches, chipping, or fading

Most of the time, rain and other weather will wash away anything on your metal roof. If it’s installed correctly, this is the way it’s supposed to work. The surface is smooth and intended to make it easy to remove dirt.

However, there will be times when you need to clean it a little or make sure branches and other debris aren’t scratching it. Depending on the type of metal, contact with other metals can cause it to degrade more quickly, so it’s also critical to check for any other metal objects that may be interacting with your roof and remove them.

Metal Roofing Disadvantages

Despite the many benefits of installing a metal roof, you may deal with the occasional repair. While the disadvantages include excessive noise during storms, breathability, and performance, you’ll find that proper installation can prevent and solve all these issues. As your local metal roofing company, Roofs for Life, Inc knows how to insulate your metal roof and install it to accommodate for the weather issues in Bradenton.

    It seems more and more difficult these days to find trustworthy people to work on your home. Getting an honest, reliable, customer-service-focused company that does quality work is like hitting the lottery. Roofs for Life is one of these. … More We initially contacted them two years ago when we called them out to take a look at our roof, which was 16 years old at the time (shingle) and had a small leak during Ian. Their guy went up on the roof and said we could easily make it last 2 or 3 more years by putting some sealant on and tarring over a few nail pops. He also said they could do it but it wasn't anything we couldn't do ourselves for less. What company is so honest that they tell you that rather than going after your money on the spot? When it came time this year to do the full replacement, we got multiple quotes and made sure to include Roofs for Life as one of them. Their quote was very reasonable and we worked with the salesman to make some adjustments and ensure that some things were being done the way we wanted. We are so glad we chose them. The team went above and beyond to do a first quality job and the supervisor even went up in the crawlspace to determine if we had straps and two or three nails and take pictures so we could reduce our insurance premium - this was not part of the deal and was not easy. The installation crew was first rate and took care to make sure everything was done right and that there was no damage to the house or driveway, and the supervisor took the time to explain what was going on every step of the way . They then cleaned the entire site when they were done. We feel like we hit the lottery when we chose Roofs for Life.

    We could not be happier with Roofs for Life, and Brad Beles in particular. We had my parents 30+ year old tile roof replaced last week with a beautiful shingle. The final product looks amazing! We were constantly kept updated on progress, … More they protected our property (driveway) despite having several heavy dumpsters on-site, someone was always available to retrieve extra material when needed and were it not for an unforeseen delay outside of their control, the roof replacement would have been completed in 2 days. The workers were all extraordinarily professional and extremely efficient. We could not be happier with the experience and our new roof. We strongly recommend them!

They arrived each day on time and only left when the light was failing … More and after they had cleaned up each night . The owner Ed and his commercial VP Glen were deeply involved , making sure all was on time and too specification . Thanks guys for an excellent job.

    I am Realtor and during a recent listing of mine we had an unexpected roof issue that came up during the inspection. Turns out the roof had basically no life left on it and it could not pass the 4 point inspection. The deal was going to … More fall apart unless the sellers were able to put on a new roof and put it on fast. We had only 30 days left until closing and it was right smack in the middle of the holidays. I reached out to several local roofing companies and decided to go with Roofs for Life and everyone involved in our real estate deal is glad we did! I spoke with both Ed and Glen and from the very beginning their customer service was outstanding!!! They both understood the situation we were in and assured me they could get the job done on time. I am happy to say that we closed on the house yesterday and I am not sure we could have done that had we not hired Roofs for Life. Not only did they get the job done on time but did so for a great price. Looks like this Realtor has a new “go-to” roofing company.

    i'm not sure how my review got deleted. I will repost with pictures.I see the owner left a comment. He could have called me to follow up and find out what problems they've caused. My wife called to complain they sent someone out … More but didn't do anything about the damage they'd caused. Hopefully I can relocate the photos soon from an old phone.

    I called Roofs For Life, Inc. yesterday after hurricane Ian left the area. I had several roof panels loose or blown off. Called their office yesterday morning, and Ed came out later in the day. Ed secured the loose panels, and removed the … More damaged ones. Ed will return once the new panels arrive and repair the damage. Their response, and service is outstanding!

  • Avatar Matt Marrocco ☆☆☆☆ a year ago
    Young kid came out, I was unavailable to answer the door and tells my wife your tile roof is 16 you only have 2 more years left on expected life so I'm not going to be able to do a repair... No physical inspection was done! Completely … More tried to take advantage and lied to my wife! I got on the doorbell camera and told this kid to get lost (I was at least pleasant about it)! He saw the house and tried to completely take advantage and rip us off in my opinion! Tile should last 26-30 yrs according to a few other roofers I spoke with. So to state 18yrs I would "probably" need a new roof he should know if he quotes them that the average life is between 26-30yrs... just odd he didn't want to reschedule and was fast to say I'll quote you a new roof without ever getting on the roof!I then called the owner and notified him... I'd be very careful with these guys get other bids don't just "TRUST" what they tell you is accurate! In my case it was not, Two other companies said my roof is in the best shape for ONLY being 16 year old TILE... had I not had the construction knowledge I have and not spoke with two other REPUTABLE COMPANIES and just trusted this guy I could be out 60,000 dollars! I hope this review never allows this to happen again for them and everyone who reads it should do some research first!

    We just had Roofs For Life replace our roof and could not be more pleased. They offered a variety of high quality options at a competitive price. Workers were efficient and professional, completing all work in 2 days. We highly recommend … More Roofs For Life.
  • Avatar Eric Van Zytveld ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    They did a great job installing our roof. Both removing the shingles and installing the new roof went quickly. They were also on the lookout for issues on our roof that would have cost us dearly later on and saved us thousands in future … More repairs. I would use them again.
  • Avatar Matt Bradfield ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    When deciding to put a roof on our home we started by getting quotes from multiple companies. Teagan the salesperson was very helpful and punctual which seems like all salespeople would be but it was definitely not true in this case (one … More didn't even show up). They started on the roof about 10 days after signing the contract. It took about a day and a half to complete and the workers kept the place spotless. I had a concern that I saw on the roof a couple days after they finished and one of the owners "Glen" came out himself to see it and facetimed me to go over what I was seeing. About a week later we had our first rain after the new roof was complete and our back porch was leaking which turned out not to be part of the initial roof quote. Once again another owner "Ed" came out on a Saturday to see the issue and on Wednesday morning was back and fixing the back porch transition that was leaking. I know this review is long winded but I needed to explain why I think that Roofs For Life is an exceptional choice if your in need of a new roof. Thanks again RFL for the incredible service.
