Metal Roofing Installation and Repair  

Metal roofs are very rewarding roofing systems to have. They are made of steel, aluminum, or copper and have a much longer lifespan than shingle roofing. Every metal roof can be painted to suit the general tone of your property. 

They are very efficient and come in several finishes, designs, and colors, leading to greater energy savings than other roofs. The best part of metal roofs is their sustainability, as they can contain a significant amount of recycled content. They last long and are 100% recyclable. They are also fire resistant and are designed to withstand strong winds. 

There are so many advantages of installing metal roofs in your building. You will be learning all this and all about metal roofs in this article. 

Type of Metal Roofs

There are several types of metal roof options to choose from when deciding on the best roofing system for your home.

Aluminum Metal Roofing

Aluminum metal roofs are very lightweight and do not allow for corrosion. They are very compatible with coastal environments and the reflective pigment from them reflects radiant heat. This allows them to help maintain a cool temperature inside your home. The strength to weight ratio is higher and you get the same amount of strength without using a heavier material.

Copper Metal Roofing

Copper roofing develops a protective layer and changes color. It is the most expensive and has an appealing and unique appearance. It is corrosion-resistant, lightweight, and fire-resistant. It is very durable and can last for up to 60 years. .

Zinc Metal Roofing

They are very similar to copper roofing. They change color and have a really beautiful appearance. They are also corrosion-resistant, substantial, and completely recyclable. They maintain low toxicity levels and can last for up to a century if properly maintained. They are common in Europe for aesthetic purposes and not popular in the US due to the high cost.

A consistent, reliable, and true to their word roofing contractor will do things the same high quality way every time. If a roofing company you're consulting has no predictable process, they also have no predictable results. In other words, the return on your investment with them will be a gamble. At True Roofing, our roofing process is the same whether it's for a minor roof repair or a major roof replacement. Our results are high quality, reliable, predictable, repeatable. 


The Inspection

The inspection is the first step many contractors skimp on. That's a mistake that can cost both you as the customer and the roofer dearly. That doesn't mean it has to take a long time, however. An inspection by an experienced and highly qualified roofing veteran can be conducted in 30-60 minutes and again, they will follow a set process with a checklist to ensure complete assessment of the situation. If a roofer is casual about assessing your roof and flippant about quoting you thousands of dollars for repairs or installation, we suggest you move on to another company. The inspection sets the ground work for everything else.


Working Out The Details

The quoting, discussion of budgetary concerns, payment options such as financing, and finally scheduling. If you have any special notes or concerns, if you have specific scheduling, if you want a certain type of shingle, custom metal roof, tile roof, etc., we will discuss all these details with you, answer every possible question you have, and ensure you're ready to move on. True Roofing will never use high pressure sales tactics, nor will we ever need to. You will see the value upfront, and we do everything possible to make our services as affordable as possible to everyone at all budget levels. No high pressure sales, ever.


Doing it Right the First Time

The last step is to actually get out there and do the work. Whether it's a minor repair, major repair, small installation, major replacement, your roofing crew will treat it with the same level of attention that we treat all our projects. Armed with the detailed inspection notes and knowing exactly what needs to be done, prepared with the schedule and time frames, and any special notes & concerns you may have, our crew can proceed along the previously agreed on plan and execute it flawlessly. The purpose of the process is to standardize results, and we carry that mindset into our work on the roof as well. Do it once, do it right.
