What Is Metal Roofing?

In today’s ever-evolving climate, roofing materials are advancing. Metal roofing, in fact, is becoming a popular choice among homeowners and businesses due to its long-lasting protective properties. Metal roofing is a roofing system that employs various types of metal materials, such as steel, aluminum, copper, zinc, or a combination of these, to create a protective covering for properties. Unlike traditional roofing materials like asphalt shingles or wood, metal roofing is known for its exceptional durability and longevity.

The Benefits of a Metal Roof


On average, metal roofs will last two to three times longer than traditional shingle roofs, ensuring it’s enjoyed by multiple generations. These roofing panels are designed to withstand the harshest weather conditions, including heavy rain, snow, hail, and high winds, all while providing excellent resistance to corrosion and abrasions from debris. At Mansea Metal, our products can last anywhere from 40 to 70 years, depending on the composition of the metal chosen. 

Fire Safety

Metal roofs will not make your house fireproof, but they can certainly halt the spread of fire. Metal roofing materials have a Class A fire rating, which signifies the highest level of fire resistance due to their non-combustible nature. This offers peace of mind to homeowners and business owners, knowing that their residential or commercial metal roof is virtually impenetrable to the threat of combustion.

Unlike other roofing materials that may pose fire hazards, metal roofing ensures that the risk of it going up in random flames is virtually nonexistent, making it a secure and reliable choice for those seeking superior protection for themselves and their belongings.

Cost Effective

While the initial investment may be slightly higher compared to traditional roofing materials, the long-term savings and benefits of metal roofing far outweigh the upfront costs. Its exceptional durability ensures that a metal roof can last for decades, reducing the need for frequent replacements and repairs, which can be a substantial expense with other roofing options.

Additionally, metal roofs have the potential for lower insurance premiums due to their fire resistance and ability to withstand harsh weather.


Metal roofing’s sustainability stems from various factors, starting with the recyclability of the materials used. Many metal roofs are made from recycled metal, and once their long life comes to an end, they can be recycled again, reducing the burden on landfills.

Moreover, metal roofs are energy-efficient, reflecting sunlight and reducing the need for air conditioning during hot weather, which, in turn, cuts down on energy consumption and carbon emissions.
