Metal has long been a favorite roofing material for industrial and commercial buildings because of its durability and strength, and it is gaining in popularity with Georgia homeowners who are looking for an eco-friendly, fire-resistant, and energy efficient roofing option. The low-maintenance metal roofing products available today have an expected lifespan of 40–70 years and they’re backed by exceptional manufacturer warranties, too. Although these advantages are all excellent reasons to invest in a metal roof, it’s also the most attractive choice for your home and here’s why:
Good Looks That are Virtually Age-Proof
Our hot, humid climate isn’t very kind to most types of roofing materials, and they can start to develop an unattractive, aged appearance in just a few years. Metal is almost impervious to aging and won’t crack or chip like clay tiles, dry out and disintegrate like wood shakes, curl, or cup and lose granules like asphalt shingles. In fact, you can expect your metal roof to stay looking just as good for decades as the day it was installed.
Beautiful, Long-Lasting Finishes
State-of-the-art surface coatings give metal roofing its beautiful and incredibly durable finish. The metal itself is galvanized to prevent the oxidation that causes corrosion, and then the protective outer coating is applied to shield the material from harmful ultraviolet light, humidity, acid rain, and other environmental pollutants. The Kynar 500 coating is one example. This advanced polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) resin creates a gorgeous, color-saturated finish that resists fading or chalking year after year.
Profiles to Complement any Home Design
There are a number of distinctive metal roofing profiles to choose from to perfectly accentuate your home’s architectural style. For a uncluttered, modern look there are standing seam and 5V crimp profiles. If your neighborhood calls for a more traditional roof style, you can opt for a gorgeous stone-coated profile that offers the look of designer shingles, natural slate, cedar shakes, or classic clay tiles.
An Amazing Array of Color Choices
Metal roofing comes in a wide range of colors, with a palette that includes the classic metallics like copper and steel as well as off-whites, greens, reds, blues, and browns. You’ll have an almost limitless choice of colors, so you’re sure to find just the right shade to match your home’s style and aesthetic.
