Steel roof company Maryland

Steel roofing provides many of the same benefits as all other metal roofing systems. It’s durable, eco- friendly, and cost-effective. However, it also has a zinc coating that increases its resilience and provides it with an extra layer of corrosion resistance.

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

What is Steel Roofing?

Steel roofing is manufactured in giant rolls. It is then coated with either zinc or a zinc-aluminum mixture to protect it from oxidation. It comes in a variety of thicknesses that can be used for different purposes to suit your individual needs.

Steel is energy efficient, recyclable (or perhaps already recycled by the time it gets to you), and lightweight. It’s easy to install, and this contributes to its affordability. It is also highly customizable, allowing you to make it look like many other roofing types.

Types of Steel Roof Coatings

There are two types of coatings on a steel roof. Galvanized steel is coated with a thin layer of zinc to make it more corrosion resistant. It can be coated with various thicknesses depending on how it will be used.

Galvalume is a trademarked product that contains an aluminum-zinc alloy mixture and is slightly more protective than galvanized steel. It holds up better over time and is a popular solution for preventing rust and corrosion.

Steel Roof Advantages

The advantages of using steel roofing are nearly endless. It’s much like other metal roofing systems in its eco-friendly, cost-effective, and low-maintenance properties. However, it does have some other unique advantages.

Fire Resistant

Steel roofing is more fire-resistant than other metal roofing types. It can prevent a fire from spreading and insulates your home from sparking. It has a Class A noncombustible rating, which is the highest rating possible, so you can rest assured your home is at its safest with a steel roof.

100% Recylable

Like other metal roofing systems, steel roofing is 100% recyclable. It won’t end up in a landfill, and it’s so lightweight that transportation and installation are much cheaper than other roofing types. You may also enjoy knowing that it can be installed over your existing roof, so you won’t pay to haul it away.

Cost Effective

Steel roofing is extremely cost-effective. It can save you money on your HVAC bills in both the summer and the winter by deflecting the sun and insulating heat. It regulates the temperature inside your home efficiently, so your systems don’t have to work as hard.

Cleans Easily

Steel resists the build-up of algae and other bacteria. A good rain storm can clean your steel roof for you, and in the winter, snow will slide off instead of adding extra weight and pressure to the frame of your home.

Longevity

The average lifespan of a steel roof is 50 years or more, so you’ll enjoy the long lasting effects of all these other benefits for as long as you own your home. What’s more, it will increase your curb appeal and resale value.

Steel Roof Maintenance

As with other types of metal roofing, steel needs very little maintenance. It’s important to keep it clean and make sure it doesn’t come in contact with low hanging branches or other types of metal. Overall, your steel roof should last a long time even without that much care and attention.

Steel Roof Cost

Many things contribute to the relatively low cost of a steel roof. Steel is one of the least expensive types of metal roofing. It’s lightweight and easy for a steel roofing company to transport. It requires less labor during steel roof installation, and it can be installed over your existing roof to save you money on tear away.

Myths About Steel Roofing

A common misconception is that steel roofing is noisy. In fact, when installed and insulated correctly by steel roofing company, steel roofing is no noisier during a storm than any other roofing type, whether it is metal or not.

Many people are concerned about their steel roof getting struck by lightning. The simple fact is that lightning reaches out for the highest point in the area, so a home with a steel roof is no more likely to get struck by lightning than any other home. Because of steel’s ability to dissipate electricity, you’re much safer in a house with a steel roof than you are with any other roofing material.

    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!
