Providing Exceptional Metal Roof Replacement & Repairs throughout Maryland
Homeowners choose metal roofs because they have distinct advantages over other roofing materials. They are durable, lightweight, easy-to-install, and fireproof. With many colors and styles to choose from, Certified Inc. Roofing can achieve virtually any look you want for your home or commercial building.
Many low slope commercial metal roofs are made from corrugated galvanized steel. Copper, aluminum, stainless steel, and tin can also be used. Although the initial investment of a metal roof is higher than other commercial roof solutions, there is no question that they are worth it for the safety and protection they provide.
What’s the Advantage of a Metal Roof?
Metal Roofs Are Eco-Friendly
Unlike asphalt shingles, metal roofs can be recycled when they are removed and replaced. Metal roofs also reflect much of the sun’s heat and energy, cutting down energy costs by as much as 20%. This is from the coating used on modern metal roof panels, which has special pigments that release heat, rather than absorb it.
Metal Roofs Are Weather-Resistant
Not only do metal roofs have a longer lifespan than many other roofing materials, but they are also resistant to mildew, fire, rain, and wind. With the extreme weather conditions in our area, this is definitely a huge benefit!
Metal Roofs Are Easy to Maintain
You’ll never have to worry about missing or warped shingles with a metal roof, and debris will pretty much slide right off on its own! Their low-maintenance quality are just another reason why homeowners choose to install metal roofs.
Types of Metal Roofs We Install
Aluminum is one of the most affordable types of metal roof because it is lightweight, cutting down on labor costs. While not as stylish as other materials, it can be shaped to fit the design you want. Like other roofing materials, it’s also recyclable and durable, making it a great option if you want all the benefits of a metal roof.
Copper roofing is probably the most expensive type of metal roofing material, but it’s also one of the strongest. In fact, copper roofs can last up to 200 years! In addition to the beautiful aesthetic a copper roof has to offer, it also has a high thermal conductivity that will help keep your energy costs low.
Steel roofing is manufactured in giant rolls. Afterwards, it’s coated with either zinc or a zinc-aluminum mixture to protect it from oxidation. It comes in a variety of thicknesses and is highly-customizable, giving you a lot of options to create the perfect roof for your home.
Corrugated Metal Roofing
Corrugated metal is galvanized steel that is rolled into a pattern. It is a cost-effective choice since it’s 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 all provide superior waterproof protection. Because of the interlocking panels, the seams stand up higher than the roof itself. The standing seam is an aesthetic feature that makes standing seam metal roofs appealing and also protects the fasteners. Standing-seam metal roofs offer a wide range of colors, lengths, widths, thicknesses, and seam types.
