The reason so many businesses and homeowners are moving to sheet metal roofing is because of the long term sustainability of such a roofing material. Untreated sheet metal roofing has been proven to last at least 40 years, and chemical treatments extend that lifespan even more. With a galvanized coating, your sheet metal roof is impervious to weather and water, and it can also be treated with a UV reflective coating making your roofing system highly energy efficient. Other treatments offer resistance to mold and mildew, extending the roof’s serviceable life and decreasing the amount of necessary maintenance. One of the biggest benefits to sheet metal roofing is that it is fireproof. All this coupled with metal’s extraordinary insulation properties makes sheet metal roofing a solid choice.
In fact, a life cycle cost analysis that combines durable roofing and low maintenance costs means that having your roof constructed from sheet metal is the most sensible decision from a fiscally responsible standpoint. Sheet metal roofing can be made from various types of metal; steel, aluminum and copper to name the most common. There are also different styles of roofing, extending the powerful advantages of metal roofing along with customizable options. Here are a few of the different metal roof types that Cross Construction Co. Roofing & General Contractors offer in NYC:
Sheet Metal Tiles
These are metal shingles that combine the strength and durability of metal with the functionality of individual tiles or shingles. Because of the malleable nature of metals along with the advancement of metallurgy, these tiles can be stamped to offer a variety of decorative styles and colors. These tiles can even be made to simulate wood or clay. This type of roofing system is a “hydrokinetic” tile system of interlocking metal sheets. They work similarly to asphalt shingles in their mechanism of water shedding.
Sheet Metal Panels
These panels also form a hydrokinetic system. Sheet metal panels come in varying profiles of thickness and size. Heavy gauge panels are perfect for warehouses and other larger industrial buildings because these panels attach directly to the structural framing. This gives an economic advantage as direct attachment provides the structural diaphragm, sheathing and waterproofing all in one structure.
Standing Seam Roofing System
These are long, narrow strips of metal with interlocking seams that snap together, making installation very easy. This type of sheet metal roofing can be fabricated on-site for convenience and proper length measurement. Longer panels that run from the top of your roof to the ridge reduce leak potential because there are no cross laps.
