Understanding Metal Roofs
A metal roof is simply a roofing system created by installing panels or tiles. Traditionally, metal roofing panels were primarily used for commercial structures and agricultural buildings, but innovations in design and materials now make them an excellent option for homes due to their attractive appearance and incredible durability.
Types of Metal Roofs
Whether you have a contemporary-styled home, a craftsman, or a mid-century home, we can help you choose the right type of metal roof to suit your style.
Standing Seam Roofing
Standing seam metal roofing is the most recognizable option, designed with interlocking seams connecting vertical metal panels and attached to the roofing system using concealed fasteners.
In addition to having an attractive appearance, it offers two key benefits:
- Because there are no exposed fasteners or other hardware, there's less risk of damage to these elements due to exposure.
- Standing seam systems are able to expand and contract with temperature changes, ensuring they maintain their tight seal and water resistance.
While standing seam roofs have fasteners on the inside, metal roofing with exposed fasteners means that the roof panels overlap and are installed directly on the roof deck. The two key benefits of this type of system are:
- It's the most affordable option for a metal roof.
- Roof repairs are easily completed by simply replacing a single panel if needed.
Metal Shingles and Tiles
When you want a more traditional appearance as well as a more durable alternative to asphalt shingles, interlocking metal shingles are now available and take on the look of shake, clay tile, or even slate. This type of specialty roofing offers the following benefits:
- A more traditional look for homes compared to standing seam panels.
- Excellent resistance to hail and other damage.
Metal Roofing Materials
Metal roofing is also available in several materials:
- Aluminum roofing is lightweight and doesn't corrode, though it's used less often in residential roofing systems.
- A copper roof creates a striking and unique appearance, especially as it ages and develops a gorgeous patina. While it's a durable material that is very resistant to corrosion, it is much more expensive and often used as an accent for a gable trim or other feature rather than for the entire roof.
- Stainless steel roofing is the most common metal roofing material, offering minimal maintenance, longevity, and durability at a more affordable price. Made from galvanized steel panels, this heavy material is designed to survive high winds, resist pests and moisture, and has the best fire rating available.
- Zinc roofing is similar to copper in that it develops a patina over time and is highly resistant to corrosion and rust. However, also like copper, it's very expensive and often used as an accent rather than for the whole roof.
Why Metal Roofing is Growing in Popularity
It's no surprise that more homeowners are choosing metal roofing over asphalt shingles and other materials. Consider the many benefits it offers:
The average metal roof will last a minimum of 30 years, but it's very common for them to last 50 years or longer.
When properly installed by a roofing professional, a traditional metal roof will withstand wind up to 140 miles per hour, resists impact from falling objects (such as hail stones or tree branches), and will not corrode, crack, or rust.
Metal roofing provides excellent insulation in winter months, preventing heat from escaping your home, but in hot weather, it can reflect heat and the sun's rays, resulting in energy savings of up to 40 percent.
Steel can be recycled over and over without breaking down or losing any of its benefits, and the majority of metal roofing is made from recycled materials. Also, its long life means it can hold up longer than two or even three asphalt shingle roofs, and when it is time to replace it, the metal roof can be recycled again.
Having a high-quality roof on your home can increase the resale value by making it more appealing to home buyers due to its longevity and minimal maintenance.
Metal roofing will not catch fire if sparks land on it or if lightning strikes.

Frequently Asked Questions About Metal Roofing
How Much Does a Metal Roof Cost?
There are several factors that affect the metal roofing cost, including the material used and the square footage of the roof. However, we provide a free estimate and financing options so you know what to expect.
Is a Metal Roof More Expensive than Shingles?
Yes, while metal roofing prices vary, overall, the upfront cost is higher. However, because it lasts up to three times longer, is less likely to require repairs and maintenance, and reduces your energy costs, many homeowners find the long-term costs are much less.
Can You Install Metal Roofing Over Existing Shingles?
Typically, we can place metal roof panels over your existing roof, though we will need to look at whether there are structural issues or any rotting of the rafters or roof deck. If there are issues like that, we may not be able to install the new roof over the old roof.
