Metal Roofing

Tilel Shingle Mesa, Arizona Weather Tite Exteriors

When considering what roofing material to use for your home, there are so many factors to take into account, such as cost, maintenance, repair, and of course the aesthetic appeal. You need to be able to rely on your roof to protect you and your family from the elements for years to come, without spending a large amount of time or money on maintenance and repair. Metal roofing is one of the most durable and visually striking roofing materials on the market today, with a wide variety of options for color and material.

​Types of Metal Roofing Material:

How Much Does Metal Roofing Cost?

On average, a metal roof can cost double or triple what a typical asphalt shingle roof would cost and slightly more than the cost of composite roofing.  Metal roofing also requires special handling, tools, and installation which only a handful of roofing contractors are actually qualified to do. The biggest benefit of metal roofing is that although it can cost more upfront, it is likely to last 50+ years and requires very little by way of maintenance and repair. To cut costs, you can also use a less expensive material for the largest portions of the roof, and then use a more unique or colorful metal for the accents.

What Does Maintenance Look Like?

​Unlike wood, which has an affinity for attracting things like bugs, mold, and algae, metal roofing is resistant to all three. The biggest threat to a metal roof is actually denting and abrasions, which can occur more easily on soft metal like copper. Maintenance for a metal roof is all about keeping the gutters clear of debris and making sure tree limbs and other large plants are not allowed to rub up against the material and damage the finish.
