We are the Metal Roofing Installation specialists you can trust. This surface has gained in popularity in recent years due to the durability of the products, their resistance to weather and their long warranty period. Let us give you an estimate for a roof that lasts a lifetime.
Metal roofing has been part of construction in the United States since the early 18th century. Monticello, the home of Thomas Jefferson in Virginia, has a metal roof. At the end of the 19th century, tin was commonly used on homes, especially in the Southeast. These were actually steel with tin plating and are still visible on many homes today giving testimony to their longevity.
Today’s products last an average of three times longer than asphalt, making them cost-effective despite being a little more expensive at the onset of installation. Some products can resist wind gusts of 130 mph plus.
A Spokane metal roofing installation can involve one of many products available today. Some of the more popular ones are:
- Steel Shingle: These products are relatively lightweight yet very strong and weatherproof. They mimic asphalt, wood and slate in appearance. Only a trained eye can really tell the difference. They are painted or coated and available in many different styles and colors.
- Aluminum Shingle: Painted or galvanized aluminum shingles are very durable and weather resistant. They are also a favorite of environmentalists because they are recyclable and come from a source that is abundant and renewable.
- Metal Tile: A Spokane metal roofing installation of metal can be manufactured to look exactly like tile, but it does not have the heavy weight associated with ceramic and concrete. Structural reinforcement is not necessary.
- Standing Seam: This is a continuous series of panels that are interlocked and can be used on any style from low and steep sloped to mansard. The system can be used effectively to hide topside clutter such as HVAC equipment and ductwork from view. IHOP restaurants are an example of how a standing seam system can create a striking and sturdy architectural element to a building. Panels are available in several different gauges and any color to fit any design.
