It’s easy to make a practical case for residential metal roofs. Metal roofing is durable, resisting rain, snow, hail, wind, lighting, and whatever else Mother Nature can throw at it. It’s also incredibly long-lasting, with an average lifespan of 50 years. And despite that long lifespan, it requires very little maintenance. It’s hard to ask for more than that in terms of functionality.
But when you’re looking at your residential roofing options, you’re probably looking at aesthetics, not just at functionality. Here’s the good news: Metal roofs don’t have to look as if they belong on a warehouse or ultra-modern residence.
If your home is more traditional, you may want to consider an Oxford or rustic-style shingle, which will give you the look of an old-fashioned shingle. There are even interlocking panels of metal shingles that look like classic wooden shakes, but don’t carry the same risks regarding wood rot and fire susceptibility.
If you are dreaming of a warm, Mediterranean ambiance, then you should investigate our Terra Tile, which has the classic S-shaped profile of Spanish tile. Unlike real clay tile, however, it won’t absorb moisture or break as a result of the freeze-thaw cycle.
Prefer a clean, contemporary profile? A standing seam style may be right for you. This choice is also popular due to how well it sheds snow -- something no resident of Wisconsin can discount.
If you weren’t aware of how many options there are regarding residential metal roofs, you’re not alone; many homeowners don’t know that metal roofing can fit in with practically any residential architectural style. But more and more people are catching on to the numerous benefits metal roofing offers homeowners. That’s why it’s one of the fastest-growing segments of the home improvement market.
