Home Metal Roofing - A Top Choice for Homeowners [Benefit List]

A home has a green metal roof.Nowadays, corrugated metal roofing comes in galvanized steel in several forms. Customers can choose from U, V, ribbed, and other styles for their metal roofs. Each of these styles will be held firmly in place by exposed screws with streamlined coloring blending the overlap. 

The rest of this post will go over a few of the many benefits of metal roofs for residential homeowners.

Long Life Expectancy

A metal roof installed by professionals has life expectancies as long as that of the house. Home metal roofing can prevent extra water from getting inside and causing structural issues. Warranties will vary depending on the materials and the installer. Most times, you will find warranties between 30-50 years.

Lightweight Materials

Tile roofing can be in the neighborhood of 750 pounds per square. Metal roofing, on the other hand, is somewhere between 50-150 pounds per square. The lightweight nature of metal roofing can help you save on building supports necessary to keep your structure sound. In most cases, homeowners can reduce the roof supports for their overall structure. Another pro about metal roofing being light is that it can often be added on top of an existing roof with a tear-off.

Fire Resistance

As you might imagine, metal roofs aren’t combustible or flammable. In fact, they often rate toward the top of the fire-resistant categories. Make sure your installer considers the materials underneath the metal panels as they will factor into your roofs’ overall rating for fire-resistance. 

Top Snow and Rain Runoff

Metal roofs are just about impervious to snow, rain, and precipitation. The interlocked panels make the surface hard and slippery, promoting runoff. For even better results in the winter, consider choosing dark color tones to capture sunlight and melt the accumulating snow. 

Stay Safe from the Heat

Speaking of your roof and heat, the metal material of your roof will reflect heat from the sun. This heat-resistance will drop your need to crank the AC up during the hottest parts of the day. Though metal roofs don’t have great insulation, you can add rigid-foam insulation under it to prevent temperature exchanges with the outside. 

Choosing the right metal roof installer

No matter your reason for choosing metal roofing for your home, this option provides several benefits for you and your family. Make sure to gain all these benefits and more by choosing a professional company to ensure your roof gets put together correctly. The experts at Mansea Metal have the experience and knowledgable crews to give you a metal roof that will last for years to come.

The Mansea Metal Difference

We Are The Manufacturer

Most of the companies who advertise metal roofing and siding or post-frame buildings are simply reselling products produced by someone else. We produce our own products from rolled steel and have large indoor yards that keep our lumber protected. That way, we control the quality and time of delivery to you. And that creates jobs right here in your home town.

Higher Quality Steel with Superior Finishes

The truth is not all steel is alike, especially when it comes to finishes. That’s why we use Sherwin-Williams WeatherXL™ Coil Coatings. Created to withstand most anything that comes its way, designed to maintain extreme resistance to abrasion, chipping and marring with tremendous color and gloss retention. And you get to select your favorites from more than 22 striking color options.

You Won’t Be Shorted On Lumber

When we price a building package, we give you everything you need to ensure structural integrity. Like longer gable posts that extend to the top of the truss, not just tying in at the bottom. And long-lasting pressure-treated wood measuring .60 CCA. You won’t get this quality at a ‘big box’ store. Plus, we use true 6x6’s along with 2x10’s and 2x12’s that are #1 grade.
