Building Beautiful Metal Roofs in Cedar Lake

Metal roofs have earned their place among some of the best investments homeowners can make to increase home value. By design, they last longer than traditional roofs, are energy-efficient, and can be customized to any home’s architecture. Investing in metal roofs also protects your home because metal can handle just about any weather element, from extreme temperatures to ice and snow and everything in between.

What’s the Advantage of a Metal Roof?

Metal Roofs Are Energy Efficient

Believe it or not, metal roofs can cut down your energy bills by as much as 20%! That is because they have a reflective coating that bounces off the sun’s heat and energy. Over time, the energy savings will be worth the investment in your metal roof.

Metal Roofs Are Not Noisy

Contrary to popular belief, you’ll hear the same amount of noise on a metal roof as with any other roof. As long as your attic and roof are properly insulated, a metal roof is no noisier than any other roofing material during a rainstorm.

Metal Roofs Are Hail-Resistant

Studies conducted by the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety (IBHS) have found that metal roofing is far less likely to be punctured by hail than conventional asphalt shingles. That is definitely a benefit.

 

Types of Metal Roofs We Install

Aluminum Roofing

Aluminum is arguably the most affordable type of metal roof because it is super lightweight and easier to handle than other types of metal roofing. While not as stylish as other types of metal roofs, they are quite malleable and can be shaped into almost any type of design. With aluminum, you can get all the benefits of a metal roof without the bells and whistles.

Copper Roofing

Copper is known for its beauty and strength making it a wonderful material for roofing. It has high thermal conductivity, so it will keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Who doesn’t love energy savings? Copper is considered a high-end metal roofing material and will cost more than other metal roofs.

Corrugated Metal Roofing

Corrugated metal is a cost-effective choice for metal roofing because it is prefabricated. It is lightweight, corrosion-resistant, durable, and easily transported. Corrugated metal directs water off of your roof making it an excellent solution for your building.

Standing-Seam Metal Roofing

Standing seam metal roofing comes in a variety of seam types: snap-lock, mechanical lock, and batten panel. Each one interlocks differently and they provide different protection. Depending on your climate, you can choose a specific seam type to protect your building.

Steel Roofing

Steel roofing is often manufactured in giant rolls and is coated with either zinc or zinc aluminum to protect it from oxidation. This type of metal roofing is highly customizable so you can create the perfect roof for your home.
