Benefits of Metal Roofs

One reason NWA Roofing Today began providing metal roof installation in Northwest Arkansas is that we recognized how versatile and durable these roofing systems are. Not only will you get a roof that will last 50 years or longer, but you also have more choices with this type of roof than with almost any other roofing system on the market today. Metal roofs can be styled to look like shingles or tiles or you can install snap-lock standing seam panels and you’ll get the same protection and value. Modern metal roofing also comes in a variety of colors to fit any home design. Among the metals that you can choose for a metal roof installation are aluminum, galvanized steel, and copper. 

While NWA Roofing Today can work with any type of metal roof, we specialize in copper and snap-lock standing seam metal. 

  • Copper roofing: While initially a little more expensive than other metal roofing materials, copper offers benefits other metals do not. Besides being very aesthetically pleasing, they actually improve with age, rather than show deterioration like other metals. Like aluminum, they do not rust, although they can corrode. They are also lightweight and generally won’t require any extra support when installed. 
  • Standing seam metal: Although metal roofing can be shaped like shingles or tiles, standing seam metal is still preferred by many homeowners because it’s offered in multiple lengths, widths, and thicknesses. For residential roofing, snap-lock standing seam is the most common choice. Like all standing seam, the fasteners, which snap together, are concealed under the seams of the interlocking panels. This protects the fasteners from weathering and damage, lessening the chance of problems like leaks.

Metal Roof Repairs

While metal roofs are durable and low maintenance, they are still subject to wear and damage. But, when you need metal roof repair in Northwest Arkansas our experienced crews will have you covered, no matter the problem. Of course, one common problem metal roofs experience is rust, often caused by leaks. While our skilled professionals can patch leaks or replace rusted panels, one option some take is a roof coating. Elastomeric coatings like silicone or acrylic are applied over the roof and create a barrier against leaks. They are also reflective and benefit your home’s energy efficiency. 

Another concern people have about metal roofing is noise. Most metal roofs are backed with rigid foam insulation for noise reduction. Another option for noise reduction is foam roofing. Because it is less aesthetically appealing, it is more often used in commercial metal roofing, but can be used on residential roofing as well for noise reduction. Foam also protects the roof from leaks and improves energy efficiency.

Are metal roofs better?

In general, metal roofs are better than asphalt shingle roofs. They are, of course, longer lasting. While a shingle roof lasts about 25 years, a metal roof will last anywhere from 40 to 70 years or more. Moreover, metal roofs are highly fire resistant and much more energy efficient than shingle. They also aren’t susceptible to moss or algae growth that can leave shingle roofs vulnerable to leaks and other serious problems. What often deters homeowners from installing metal roos is the initial cost to install them, which can be up to twice as high as shingles. But, these costs are often offset by other factors such as the roof’s durability and low maintenance requirements. In some cases insurers offer discounts for metal roofing and tax rebates might be available.
Which metal roof is best?



 The types of metal roofing available strengthen its appeal, and each type has its advantages. Copper roofing is among the best, as it is highly corrosion and rust resistant, as well as one of the longest lasting metal roofs. It also has strong aesthetic appeal. It also costs more than other metals. Aluminum roofing is also highly corrosion resistant, and especially effective in coastal areas. But, aluminum can also be more expensive than other metals. Tin roofing is strong and durable, as well, as contemporary tin roofing is actually a blend of tin and steel. Actual pure tin roofs are rare these days.

Can you put a metal roof over shingles? 



Yes, you can install a metal roof directly over shingles, though this installation process isn’t recommended. In some areas, local building codes might not allow it. If the metal roofing isn’t carefully installed over the shingles moisture can get trapped between the metal and the shingles, creating a greater potential for leaks and other problems to develop.
Does a metal roof lower insurance?



Depending on the insurer, installing a metal roof might lower your insurance premiums. Insurance companies like metal roofs because they are able to withstand damage from storms as well as fires better than other roofing materials, which means the insurance company is less likely to have to pay out an insurance claim.
