Metal Roof Replacement in Midlothian, VA
Metal roofs are gaining popularity in the Midlothian area because of their strength, durability and fire resistance. Metal roofs are able to protect homes from the storms and inclement weather conditions common to Virginia, including rain, snow, ice and wind. The slippery roof surface causes snow and ice to slide off of the roof rather than accumulating. Metal roofs also have a 120mph wind rating which protects the materials from lifting during a heavy storm.
Metal is the only roofing system available that remains 100% non-combustible throughout the entire lifespan of the roof. This provides a measure of protection in the event of a fire, and is attractive to many safety-conscious homeowners. Metal comes in a wide variety of colors, which makes matching your exterior aesthetic an easy task!

Frequently Asked Questions About Metal Roofs
How Long Does A Metal Roof Last?
Unpainted metal roofs can last 100+ years with proper maintenance and care. However, when a metal roof is painted, the lifespan is reduced to about 50 years.
This is because the baked enamel paint used to achieve color has a projected lifespan of about 40 years. Once the paint reaches the end of its lifespan, it may begin to peel and fade. The roof will still be functional, but the roof will need to be repainted or replaced in order to restore its appearance.
Are There Different Kinds Of Metal Roofs?
Yes. There are two main types of metal roofs: corrugated metal roofs and standing seam metal roofs. The biggest difference between the two styles is the way they are fastened.
On a corrugated metal roof, the metal panels are attached directly to the deck of the roof via screws, which are visible from the top. In contrast, a standing seam metal roof is 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.
Are Metal Roofs Environmentally Responsible?
Yes, metal roofs are typically made from recycled materials. They can also be recycled once the roof reaches the end of its lifespan. This makes them an environmentally responsible roofing option for homeowners who are concerned with making eco-friendly choices.
How Much Does A Metal Roof Cost?
The average cost to install a metal roof varies, depending on the size and slope of the roof, so it is impossible to estimate a total cost without inspecting your unique roof. At your free estimate appointment, our sales representative will measure your roof and give you an accurate quote.

“We are very happy with our experience working with Cenvar Roofing. Our attached home and the adjoining home needed to replace our shared roof and Cenvar provided the best proposal for the best price of any we got.
The materials used are good quality. Their crew was big enough that they completed the work efficiently in about a day and a half. Very pleasant workers and the crew foreman, Hunter Brown, was attentive and knowledgeable.
The crew left our house and yard very neat and straight overnight even though the foreman had a late afternoon meeting and was not supervising them. I would give Cenvar my highest recommendation.”– Ronald W., Midlothian VA
