Metal Roofing - The Ultimate Roofing Material

Metal roofing is a non-combustible, corrosion resistant and fully recyclable product — perfectly suited for today's needs, lifestyles and environmental priorities. It has outstanding durability and is suitable for extreme weather conditions. It can be installed over existing roofing, eliminating tear off costs, mess and disposal problems.

Here are some of the reasons why metal roofing is "The Ultimate Roofing Material".

  • Lasts a Lifetime
  • Adds Value to Your Home
  • Withstands Severe Weather
  • Snow Slides off Roof
  • Conserves Energy
  • Requires Virtually No Maintenance
  • Does Not Support the Growth of Moss, Mildew or Fungus
  • Broad Palette of Attractive Colors
  • Can Be Installed Over Existing Asphalt Roof

Why Our Metal Roofing is the Best

Because we use Premium 29-Gauge and 26-Gauge Painted Galvalume® panels that's why!

Our panels will give your building the attractive lasting quality you demand from a steel panel. Our panels are manufactured using a state of the art paint system. A steel substrate with a Galvalume® coating as opposed to straight galvanized.

The Galvalume® coating combines aluminum, silicon and zinc to make the steel substrate have superior corrosion resistance.

Before the paint is applied to the Galvalume® coated steel, a pretreatment of chrome oxide is applied which also inhibits corrosion and promotes adhesion.

Next, a primer consisting of an epoxy modified polyester for improving adhesion and flexibilty is appied. And the final top coat is applied consisting of 30% siliconized modified polyester, this minimizes chalking and fading.

$1,500 Tax Credit for Installing a Metal Roof

As a result of the Stimulus Package signed in February of 2009, homeowners who make energy efficient updates to their home—the installation of a painted or coated Energy Star® labeled metal roof included—between January 1, 2009 and December 31, 2010 may be eligible for a tax credit worth 30% of the installation costs (materials only) up to $1,500 per home over the two-year period.

Specifically, the Energy Improvement and Extension Act of 2008, which was attached to H.R. 1424, provided extensions to The Energy Policy Act of 2005. This allows for a tax credit for homeowners who install qualified energy-efficient improvements to an existing home in 2009.

The tax incentive pertains to “qualified energy efficient improvements” which are, as defined by the new law: “any energy efficient building envelope component which meets the prescriptive criteria for such component established by the 2000 IECC (or in the case of a metal roof with appropriate pigmented coatings which meet the Energy Star® program requirements. An Energy Star-labeled metal roofing system has at least 65% solar reflectance for low-slope roofing and 25% solar reflectance for steep-slope roofing.

What is truly great about this news is that a $1,500 tax credit is truly an extra $1,500 in your wallet. Tax credits are subtracted directly from a consumer’s total tax liability. Therefore, a credit has a higher value than a deduction. For example, if a homeowner is in the 28% tax bracket and earns a $1,500 credit on his new, energy-efficient metal roof, the result is equal to a tax deduction of approximately $5,357.

Receiving your $1,500 tax credit is as easy as 1,2,3:

  1. Confirm that the metal roof you select is a painted or coated Energy Star-labeled metal roof and obtain certification from your contractor or the manufacturer.
  2. Have the metal roof installed between January 1, 2009 and December 31, 2010.
  3. Fill out IRS Form 5965 when filing your taxes for 2009 and/or 2010.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Why should I consider a metal roof?
Metal roofing is one of the most practical roofing materials on the market today. It offers a long-life alternative to problem plagued roofing materials such as asphalt, clay, wood, and slate.

Q. How long will metal roofing last?
This could very well be the last roof you will ever put on your home, barn, shed or shop with life expectancies that can easily exceed 30 years. Corrosion resistant substrates and long-life finishes ensure long-term performance, minimal maintenance and life cycle cost savings. This substrate has been protecting many of the world’s monumental buildings for decades, and has been in use for over 100 years.

Q. Isn’t metal roofing expensive?
Metal roofing offers homeowners a long life solution. It is an investment in your home’s future. Over the life of your home, metal roofing is probably the most economical roofing material, because it can be the last roof you need to install. Traditional roofing materials have a very limited life expectance before one is faced with the expense of another re-roof project.

Q. Why spend more for metal roofing?
Conventional roofing materials such as asphalt shingles have a significantly shorter life span and according to the insurance industry, the average replacement age of a typical 40-year architectural asphalt shingle is between 10-12 years. They begin to devalue your roof because of discoloration, stains, and algae growth within the first few years after installation. A typical asphalt roof, even with the new high wind warranties, only carries a five-year warranty against shingles blowing off. The rest of the warranty is usually prorated. The Color Metal Roofing System carries a Lifetime transferable warranty. Our Metal Roofing System actually increases in value with the rest of your home saving the homeowner up to 35% on utility bills. No conventional roof can make these claims. When considering metal vs. asphalt, you are basically choosing between an investment (metal) over an expense (asphalt). Homeowners will never need to hire a roofing contractor as long as they live in their home, that’s priceless!!

Q. What are the advantages of metal over other type of roofing?
Prefinished metal roofing is offered in a broad palette of attractive colors with long-life coatings that do not support the growth of moss, mildew or fungus. Metal panels are lightweight, yet strong enough to withstand severe weather, snow easily slides off the roof. Finally, metal roofing lasts longer, conserves energy, and requires virtually no maintenance.

Q. Does my roof have to be removed before installing a metal roofing system?
In most cases, No. A metal roofing system weighs 1/3 the weight of a conventional asphalt roof. We can install it over the asphalt roofing. Eliminating the need for tear-off saves time, mess and hassle, and protects your home from possible flooding during a roofing project. It also adds insulation in addition to protecting the environment by reducing landfill waste.

Q. I’m too old, why should I worry about a lifetime warranty when I can get a 30-year asphalt shingle that’s less expensive and will out live me?
This is a big misconception and commonly asked question. Even the best 30-year asphalt shingle only has a replacement warranty for the first few years. At this point it is aggressively prorated to where there is no coverage due to natural weathering, thus being the reason why asphalt roofs need replacing after 10-12 years. The average size home roofed with asphalt costs around $5,000.00. However, you’ll have to replace it in ten to twelve years. Add inflation over ten years plus tear-off cost to do it again for $8,700.00 for a total cost over ten years of $13,700.00. It is seen in just a ten-year time frame, a homeowner’s true cost in an asphalt roof is $13,700.00. Compare that to a Lifetime Metal Roof that NEVER needs replacing!

We have many clients in their retirement years between the ages of 50-80. These buyers are well educated and experienced. They know from experience you get what you pay for in life. They’ve purchased 4-5 asphalt roofs in their lifetime and know for a fact that an asphalt roof won’t last 30 years. These clients are looking for a roof that is maintenance free as well as worry free from storm damage. The likelihood of these clients benefiting from a lifetime warranty 50 years from now is slim. But eliminating the need to hire a roofing contractor and going through hassle and interruption in life during elderly years is more than enough reason to spend a little more on a lifetime roof guaranteed to never be bothered with roof replacement again!

Q. Will a metal roof heat up my home?
Actually, just the opposite. Our metal roofing system reflects up to 70% of the sun’s radiant heat reducing the amount of heat transmitted into your home. Likewise, it makes your home warmer in the wintertime by reflecting inside heat from the underside of the roof back into the home. This good thermal reflectivity translates into energy savings by reducing cooling costs in the summer and heating costs in the winter.

Q. Will a metal roof make my house more susceptible to a lightning strike?
No. A metal roof will not make a building more susceptible to a lightning strike. Lightning will tend to strike the highest object in a given area, regardless of what that object is made of. A metal roof can actually be beneficial in the event of a lightning strike due to being a non-combustible material.

Q. Can you walk on a metal roof?
Absolutely! Care must always be taken when walking on your roof.

Q. Is a metal roof noisy?
This is a common question, and probably one of the biggest misconceptions about metal roofing. People usually think of an old barn roof where the metal is visible to the interior of the structure. On a residence, however, metal roofing is often installed over a solid substrate. Further, attic space and insulation serve as additional sound barriers. Research has proven that metal is not any noisier than traditional roofing products.

Q. What is Galvalume?
Galvalume is 55% Al-Zn (aluminum – zinc) coated sheet steel that is ideally suited for most types of roofing applications. An estimated 40 billion square feet of galvalume now covers buildings in all kinds of climates and environments throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico, as well as Europe, Asia and Australia. Galvalume is an ideal material for roofing because of its extraordinary outdoor corrosion resistance and resulting long life. It is extremely popular due to its versatility, ease of use, aesthetics and long-term performance.

Q. What is the difference between your Galvalume Metal and the competitor’s Galvanized Metal?
Galvalume sheet has been successfully used in roofing applications for more than 25 years; it has been evaluated in outdoor R&D tests for well over 30 years. Based on these tests, in which corrosion weight losses were measured and compared with galvanized, Galvalume sheet is protected to outlast galvanized sheet (with an equivalent coating thickness) in various atmospheres by up to (9) nine times.

Q. Will a metal roof’s color fade?
Very little, if at all! Paint systems applied on our metal roofing system can be expected to provide excellent performance in nearly every environment. We use steel substrate with a Galvalume coating as opposed to straight galvanized. This Galvalume coating combines aluminum, silicon and zinc and gives the steel substrate superior corrosion resistance. Before the paint is applied to the Galvalume coated steel, a pretreatment of chrome oxide is applied which also inhibits corrosion and promotes adhesion. Next, a primer consisting of an epoxy modified polyester for improving adhesion and flexibility is applied. Lastly, the topcoat is applied consisting of a 30% siliconized modified polyester (SMP) which minimizes chalk and fade.

Q. How about wind and hurricane resistance?
Our Color Metal Roofing System has passed wind tunnel testing at 200 mph.

8 Tips on How to Inspect Your Roof Without a Ladder

Warning Signs to look for include:

  • For homes with asphalt shingles, look for black areas indicating cracking shingles.
  • For homes with shake or shingles, look for pieces that are curled upward, split, broken off or missing.
  • For homes with slate roofs, look for black areas that indicate slate is missing.
  • Look for heavy wear round the valleys, the place where water runs off the roof into the gutters.
  • Look at the materials around the chimney, and vent pipes and check for cracks, gaps and missing or fractured caulking.
  • Check eaves overhangs for water damage.
  • Use binoculars to check around the chimney, trim and other flashings for signs of cracks, shingles that are coming off the roof and general wear.
  • Conduct an interior inspection of stained or discolored ceilings, which likely indicate roof problems.

Most metal roofing is installed directly over the existing roof, reducing installation time, cost and clean up.
