Steel roofing provides many of the same benefits as all other metal roofing systems. It’s durable, eco- friendly, and cost-effective. However, it also has a zinc coating that increases its resilience and provides it with an extra layer of corrosion resistance.

What is Steel Roofing?

Steel roofing is manufactured in giant rolls. It is then coated with either zinc or a zinc-aluminum mixture to protect it from oxidation. It comes in a variety of thicknesses that can be used for different purposes to suit your individual needs.

Steel is energy efficient, recyclable (or perhaps already recycled by the time it gets to you), and lightweight. It’s easy to install, and this contributes to its affordability. It is also highly customizable, allowing you to make it look like many other roofing types.

Types of Steel Roof Coatings

There are two types of coatings on a steel roof. Galvanized steel is coated with a thin layer of zinc to make it more corrosion resistant. It can be coated with various thicknesses depending on how it will be used.

Galvalume is a trademarked product that contains an aluminum-zinc alloy mixture and is slightly more protective than galvanized steel. It holds up better over time and is a popular solution for preventing rust and corrosion.

Steel Roof Advantages

The advantages of using steel roofing are nearly endless. It’s much like other metal roofing systems in its eco-friendly, cost-effective, and low-maintenance properties. However, it does have some other unique advantages.

Fire Resistant

Steel roofing is more fire-resistant than other metal roofing types. It can prevent a fire from spreading and insulates your home from sparking. It has a Class A noncombustible rating, which is the highest rating possible, so you can rest assured your home is at its safest with a steel roof.

100% Recylable

Like other metal roofing systems, steel roofing is 100% recyclable. It won’t end up in a landfill, and it’s so lightweight that transportation and installation are much cheaper than other roofing types. You may also enjoy knowing that it can be installed over your existing roof, so you won’t pay to haul it away.

Cost Effective

Steel roofing is extremely cost-effective. It can save you money on your HVAC bills in both the summer and the winter by deflecting the sun and insulating heat. It regulates the temperature inside your home efficiently, so your systems don’t have to work as hard.

Cleans Easily

Steel resists the build-up of algae and other bacteria. A good rain storm can clean your steel roof for you, and in the winter, snow will slide off instead of adding extra weight and pressure to the frame of your home.

Longevity

The average lifespan of a steel roof is 50 years or more, so you’ll enjoy the long lasting effects of all these other benefits for as long as you own your home. What’s more, it will increase your curb appeal and resale value.

Steel Roof Maintenance

As with other types of metal roofing, steel needs very little maintenance. It’s important to keep it clean and make sure it doesn’t come in contact with low hanging branches or other types of metal. Overall, your steel roof should last a long time even without that much care and attention.

Steel Roof Cost

Many things contribute to the relatively low cost of a steel roof. Steel is one of the least expensive types of metal roofing. It’s lightweight and easy for a steel roofing company to transport. It requires less labor during steel roof installation, and it can be installed over your existing roof to save you money on tear away.

Myths About Steel Roofing

A common misconception is that steel roofing is noisy. In fact, when installed and insulated correctly by steel roofing contractors, steel roofing is no noisier during a storm than any other roofing type, whether it is metal or not.

Many people are concerned about their steel roof getting struck by lightning. The simple fact is that lightning reaches out for the highest point in the area, so a home with a steel roof is no more likely to get struck by lightning than any other home. Because of steel’s ability to dissipate electricity, you’re much safer in a house with a steel roof than you are with any other roofing material.

    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! If you need roof repair or a complete roof replacement, contact Roofs For Life, Inc! You won’t be disappointed! 5+ stars!

    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.

    Awesome service. Job well done in less than 2 days. They worked with us on when we needed it scheduled. They emailed us a detailed itemized list of what everything cost before we signed the contract. No surprise fees. Very professional … More

    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.
