What Is a Metal Roof?

Metal roofs are no longer a novelty and viable for most Calgary homes. You don’t have to be nervous about getting a roof that screams ‘metal.’ Metal roofs come in aesthetic designs and are virtually indistinguishable from traditional asphalt shingle roofs.

If you’re considering getting a new roof, feel free to contact Premium Roofing for the latest asphalt, slate, tile, and metal roofs. Our reliable roofing team provides efficient roof repair, installation, maintenance, and replacement services for residential and commercial properties.

What is a Metal Roof?

While metal roofs were usually found on high-end properties, this is no longer the case. Thanks to availability and modern manufacturing processes, metal roofs are now used in conventional homes.

If local building codes in your area allow, you can get metal roofing installed over your old roof, without tearing out the old shingles (some jurisdictions require a full tear-off).

It’s best to get the metal roof installed by our expert roofers who will provide adequate venting. Proper venting prevents moisture from getting trapped and causing mould.

Are Metal Roofs Noisy When It Rains?

It’s a popular myth that metal roofs are noisy. When properly installed, they’re no noisier than other roofs during rain or hail. Our experienced roofing pros install metal roofs over a solid substrate that reduces noise. The attic also provides additional insulation against noise.

If you’re seated in the living room or bedroom, you’re not likely to be bothered by any additional noise from the metal roof. Similarly, during lightning strikes, metal roofs are less combustible compared to shingles or wood shakes.

Metal Roof Costs

Like traditional asphalt roofs, metal roofs also last between 40 and 70 years, depending on the quality, workmanship, and weather. Overall, they are more durable than asphalt shingle roofs which may need to be replaced at least once over 30 years.

While they’re more expensive than asphalt roofs, they offer long-term value for your hard-earned money. Many insurance companies offer reduced rates to homeowners with metal roofs especially those living in areas prone to wildfires and hail.

Benefits of Getting a Metal Roof

Metal roofing has become the roof of choice for hundreds of homeowners because of these reasons:

  • They are fire-resistant
  • Metal roofs are impervious to termites (unlike wood, for example)
  • Since they conduct heat quickly, snow slides off faster from the roof
  • They are more energy-efficient during the summer months

Metal roofs do not attract lightning any more than other roof types. Lightning strikes structures connected to the ground (like telephone poles and trees) not isolated structures like metal roofs.

Metal roofs are durable, aesthetic, and recyclable, and they are ideal for homes as well as commercial properties like schools, hospitals, offices, restaurants, hotels and more.
