Metal roofing has long been used in commercial and industrial construction projects. One reason is because metal roofing requires almost no maintenance. With fewer leaks and repairs, metal roofing saves money in the long run. It’s tThese long term, money saving reasons that have made metal roofing more and more popular in residential areas. Residential metal roofing is made from light weight metals like steel, copper, or aluminum, and can be easily installed by a licensed roofing contractor over your existing roofing materials, eliminating any disposal problems associated with re-roofing. Residential metal roofing has a long life span and is extremely durable even under the most extreme weather conditions. By not having to replace your roofing system in your lifetime, you can save yourself save an enormous amount of time and money.

Residential metal roofing also has tremendous energy saving properties. As a roofing material, metal reflects heat away from the house, which puts less of a strain on in cooling your home’s cooling system in warm weather months. Typical roofing materials such as asphalt shingles have a tendency to actually absorb sunlight. Furthermore, asphalt roofing shingles retain the heat longer; a hot roof equals a hot house.

Steel roofing and copper roofing are two of the most popular forms of residential metal roofing available. They’re a little more expensive, but the cost saved in the long run and their versatility make up for that. These metal roofs come in variety of styles, from metal shingles to standing seam metal roofing. Metal roofing can also be galvanized, stone coated, or corrugated for protection from weather or added durability. Today’s residential metal roofing can even mimic existing roofing materials such as asphalt shingles, clay tiles, or slate roofing.

Metal roofing can come into problems with leaking at the joints as with standing seam metal roofing, which connects at built-in cleats. However, this is caused by improper roofing installation. Metal roofing is not a do-it-yourself weekend project; always check with a certified roofing contractor when dealing with residential metal roofing.
