Throughout history, the pillar has symbolized strength. So it’s only fitting to use this term when referring to metal roofing. A metal roof will last up to three times longer than a conventional asphalt roof (then it can be repaired). Even if a tornado destroyed a house, metal from the roof could be recycled. Essentially this means that metal roofs can last forever. Contact us at Pillar Roofing & Construction located in Richardson, Texas.
Metal Roof for the Modern Home
Metal roofs today are not the old tin roofs of the past. Many metal roof colors are available. Metal roofs can also have the appearance of other materials such as asphalt, cedar or tile. Across the nation, people are discovering the benefits and beauty of metal roofing.
Standing Seam Metal Roofing
Standing Seam Roofing is the most durable and weather-resistant roofing options available. Since the fasteners are covered, this type of roofing is maintenance-free. This metal roofing uses heavy gauge steel, making it less likely to be subject to hail damage.
Classic Corrugated Metal Roofing
Just like Standing Seam Roofing, Classic Corrugated Metal Roofing comes in a variety of colors. Though the classic style is not as thick, this is still a highly durable metal roof. Since the fasteners are exposed, there is some maintenance required with this type of roofing. Tighten these fasteners about every ten years to keep panels secure during high winds.
Both types of metal roofing are rust-resistant and can withstand winds of over 110 miles per hour.
Since metal roofs are not grounded, they don’t attract lightning any more than an asphalt roof would. All metal roofs are fire-resistant. Also, considering the high wind rating, metal roofs are very safe.
