Metal roofing systems are quickly growing in popularity. Metal is extremely durable and holds up well against most inclement weather conditions, and the slippery surface causes rain, snow and ice to slide right off the roof. This eliminates any concerns about buildup during heavy storms. Metal roofs also have a wind rating up to 120mph, which means your roof will stay safe and protected all year round.
Metal is the only roofing material available on the market that remains 100% noncombustible throughout the entire lifespan of the roof. This is attractive to many homeowners because it provides an added layer of protection against fires.

There are two main types of metal roofs: corrugated metal panels and snap lock metal. The biggest difference between the two styles is the way they are fastened.
Corrugated metal panel roofs are attached directly to the deck of the roof via screws, which are visible from the top. In contrast, Snap lock metal roofs are secured via screws that attach to clips on the side of each panel. These screws are hidden from view.
There are multiple pros and cons to each type of metal roof. At your free estimate appointment the sales representative will help you decide which type is best for your home.
