Aluminum Roofs

Aluminum Roofing Specialists Serving Maryland

Aluminum metal roof company Maryland

Aluminum roofing is unique because it has some properties that other metal roofing does not. While it is durable, corrosion-resistant, cost-effective, and eco-friendly, aluminum roofing also doesn’t rust, enables more water runoff, and reflects the sun better than other metal roofing materials.

If you’re in the market for a metal roof, aluminum may be the right choice for you. It’s the perfect solution if you want something that is energy efficient and can withstand a variety of different types of weather, including acid rain.

Certified Inc. Roofing also specializes in other metal roof types from standing seam, corrugated, steel to copper roofs.

What is Aluminum Roofing?

Aluminum roofing is made from – you guessed it – aluminum. It is incredibly lightweight, which makes it affordable because it cuts down on labor costs. It’s not quite as stylish as some other roofing types, and because of its reflective properties, it can be brighter than other materials.

While the look of aluminum bothers some people, others will appreciate the energy efficient properties this reflection gives it. One of the best features of aluminum is its malleability, meaning you can shape it to look like shingles, tile, or any other design you prefer. Like other metal roofing materials, it’s also recyclable, durable, long lasting, and cost-effective.

Temperature Regulation

One of the primary reasons why more people are choosing aluminum is because of its reflective properties. Aluminum can reflect almost 100% of the rays from the sun, meaning that your house will stay cool even when it’s hot outside.

You may be thinking there’s no advantage in winter, which is something we see a lot of in Columbia, but you would be surprised. Aluminum can also reflect heat back toward the inside of your house, so it stays warmer in the winter.

Traditionally, the roof is where you lose cold and hot air, so an aluminum roof is a great barrier to keep your home at an ideal temperature. With this type of roof, you’ll save money on your HVAC bills. Other metals are conduits of heat, but aluminum is the best regulator, helping you to enjoy more consistent temperatures inside your home throughout the year.

Weather Resistance and Durability

Aluminum is durable enough to last a long time. It can withstand extreme weather like most other metals without showing much wear and tear. High humidity, wind, acid rain, snow, sleet, hail, and other natural forces are no match for your aluminum roof. Because of its resistance to weather, aluminum is excellent for Columbia homes.

Environmental Factors

Aluminum roofing is made from many recycled materials. Some aluminum roofing may contain up to ninety percent recycled metal. Your brand-new roof may not be brand new at all, and for some, this is part of the appeal. It’s environmentally friendly and cost effective.

Aluminum also takes less labor to install on the part of the aluminum roof company because it’s so lightweight. The work is easier and doesn’t take as long to complete. It’s also easier for the aluminum roofing service to transport the materials, saving the environment from excess fuel consumption and pollution.

Aluminum Roof Cost

The total cost to install aluminum roofing varies, but you can expect to spend more upfront than you would for shingles. However, you’ll pay less over time because aluminum rarely needs to be replaced. It could potentially last for 40 or 50 years.

You can also factor in the value it adds to your home. Your resale value will go up and advertising the benefits of your aluminum roof will wow all your potential buyers, making it well worth the investment. The roof will be one less thing a prospective buyer has to worry about repairing.

Aluminum Roofing Maintenance

The maintenance for an aluminum roof is the same as all other metal roofs. You shouldn’t let branches rub against it, be sure to clean off dirt and debris, make sure the gutters are clear, and avoid letting different types of metal touch it. These can all impact the lifespan of your roof.

It’s also important to make sure people don’t walk on the roof too often. While it’s necessary if there are repairs that need to be done, it shouldn’t happen any other time. While aluminum is durable, it is softer than other metals and can be susceptible to dents.

For these reasons and more, aluminum roofing adds tremendous value to your home or business. If you are looking for a local aluminum roofing company, contact Certified Inc. Roofing. We can provide you with all the details on aluminum roofs as well as how the benefits might impact you. We can inspect your current roof, provide a free estimate, and do the installation at an affordable cost.

    By the time I connected with Jay from Certified, I had already been through a few roofing companies. Jay was not only friendly, but very patient with a first time homeowner such as myself. Certified had by far the best warranty to offer us, and was willing and eager to work with our insurance in order to cover it. We had to delay a few times due to weather (can't be helped!), but the office was always very communicative. The roof took 1.5 days to complete, and the end result was amazing. We had quite the extensive replacement job, and these guys were top notch. They replaced it, and fixed errors from the previous roof installation along the way. A couple days after our install was complete, a huge rain/wind storm rolled in. Not only did we not hear the rain, but none of it got in, much to our relief! Thanks, Jay and the whole team at Certified!

    Steve, the owner, of Certified Roofing gave us a reasonable estimate to replace our roof. Our house is 3 stories in the back and one story in the front with 2 skylights and a change in roof line in the front. There is a front door overhang that is also roofed--so not an easy installation. The choices of shingles was excellent.The crew arrived on time, was very professional, and did excellent work. They were led by Javier who was exceptional. They cleaned up beautifully. When a small problem occurred, the repair was made and Steve came out. This was last October. This week, 5 months later, we asked Steve if they could come out to reinstall a gutter guard that blew loose. They offered to do the job at no cost to us. We recommend them without hesitation. They care about their work and offer a great value for roofing.

    Great work and great service. Caught Jay giving an estimate to a neighbor and snagged his information.Jay initially walked around the house to get a general feel for the roof and scheduled a formal estimate meeting a few days later. Jay was incredibly thorough and took down all the needed information. Afterwards he sat us down to explain the exact process, the materials of construction they would use, why they chose to use them, and their function for the roof. As new homeowners, and knowing our roof was incredibly rough shape and well past its lifespan, we greatly appreciated this. Contracts were signed that week and the work was scheduled less than a week out. Day 0 was material delivery, Day 1 was the complete roof installation, Day 2 were new gutters. Everything looked incredible and made the house look brand new. Very happy with Certified Inc. and plan to use them for any new work in the future.

    I highly recommend Certified Inc. Roofing. Steve personally came to my home to inspect the roof with me and explained to me how they would install the new roof. Easy to select roof color and easy to get quote for replacement. Day of, crew arrived on time and worked steady & hard all day. Finished and cleaned up everything all in one day. The crew were nice, polite and professional. They delivered on everything promised and exceeded our expectations! Definitely highly recommended them!!!

    I had a new house roof with new gutters and then later needed repairs and new gutters on 2 horse barns , plus leaf guards on the house one side. Quotes were similar to another company but overall a better deal.Steve is excellent to deal with; there were a some problems but they were rectified very quickly, and he was very helpful in the process. The crews were very hardworking , and wasted little time even when extra supplies were needed as efficiently arranged for them so saving a delay.Delighted with the outcome, no worry about rain, hail , snow or winds on the buildings.

    Very pleased with the work of Certified Inc. I recently acquired a historic 1908 home and had all windows replaced. They look great, inside and out and flow seamlessly with the historic home. Craftsmanship is on point. I only had one issue with a simple sill that was not sloped properly, but these things happen in an old home, and Certified fixed it. Would recommend!

    We replaced a 18 year old cedar shake roof with asphalt shingles. Extremely happy the way in which Certified managed the job. From promptly providing an estimate to installation the project was completed within 2 weeks ! The installation took 2 days. The crew did a great job with installation and clean up. I chose Certified as they provided with CertainTeed material and their pricing was within our budget. Will highly recommend Certified, Inc .

    Steve and Jay came out the day after we called to do the inspection and give us a quote. Within days of us letting them know that our homeowners association approved our application to replace the roof and gutters, they had us on the schedule for installation. Roof took one day and the gutters done a day later. Top quality materials and workmanship all around. The next door neighbors also remarked about how efficient the installers were and how they didn't cause any disruption in the neighborhood. They also did a fantastic job cleaning up; no loose nails or other materials left behind. A well done job all around.

    My experience with Certified was nothing but positive. I had a severe roof leak and Certified was one of many companies to provide quotes. Jay came out for my estimate and walked me through everything. He even gave me some advice and help with making temporary fixes for an upcoming storm. After going through all my quotes, Certified was the clear winner. They scheduled my installation and got everything done exactly when they said they would. It looks great and I am super happy.

    We are in love with our new roof. The color was spot on and the gutters are amazing! My husband and I are thrilled to not have to deal with cleaning gutters and we are hoping to see improvement with our attic venting when the season changes. (Currently it's too hot to even think about going in the attic.) Removal and installation of the roof took less than 8 hours and the gutters were installed 2 days later. Juan was amazing with being a stickler for the details. He was gracious enough to come back out and fix a slight issue within a very reasonable amount of time. Now our house is perfect. Thank you so much!
