Metal roofs have proven to be ideal for most any type of roof installation, and are particularly great in Florida and other climates that receive a great deal of moisture. They withstand high winds, shed rain very effectively, and are fire-resistant. Some homeowners worry that rain will make too much noise or that lightning may be attracted to a metal roof, but these concerns are unfounded.
Flexible Styling, Exceptional Durability
Metal roofs vary in color, style and texture more than any other roofing material. They can be made to look like wood shakes, standard asphalt shingles and even tile. Many styles come in sheets which are quickly and easily installed, while metal shingles and metal tiles are individually placed and fastened.
Metal roofs are very lightweight, weighing about one-quarter as much as tile roofs and half as much as asphalt shingle roofs. While metal roofing is generally more expensive than asphalt roofing, it has a much longer lifespan and can even lower heating and cooling costs because it reflects heat from the sun. If properly installed, metal roofing will usually include a manufacturer warranty of 50 years.
Types of Metal Roof Installations
Whatever metal roof system you are looking for, Roofing by Curry can help you choose the best option for your specific roofing needs. Our roofers in Sarasota, FL, have extensive experience with these metal installations.
- Standing seam metal roofing. A standing seam roof is constructed of many interlocking panels that run vertically from the roof’s ridge to the eaves. The interlocking seam where two panels join together is raised above the roof’s flat surface, allowing water to run off without seeping between panels. The method most commonly used to secure the panels to the roof sheathing is the use of hidden fasteners. The fasteners are secured to the raised portion of each panel and subsequently covered by the next adjoining panel during installation.
- 5V-crimp metal roofing. 5V-crimp is a tried-and-true metal roof system. The traditional double v-shaped ribs, as well as the low profile of the panel, perform well on residential roofs as well as commercial roofing systems. Unlike standing seam roofs where the fasteners are hidden, the fasteners on the 5V-crimp are exposed.
- Metal tile roofing. Standard tile roofs can be heavy, yet fragile and costly to maintain. Metal tile combines the graceful curves of classic tile with the lightness and strength of metal. Installation costs are higher than a standard cement tile roof.
