At Top Metal Roofs, we prefer installing metal roofs for various reasons. First, weather patterns in Toronto shift unpredictably between severe winters and hot summers. You, therefore, need a roof that protects you from cold weather, UV rays, and allergens. A metal roof will protect your household, your property, and the structure of your building.
Secondly, the use of asphalt shingles for roofing has been predominant for decades. They are readily available and cheap but offer minimal protection. They are also prone to breakage under extreme weather as well as undergoing wear and tear due to climatic changes.
Top Metal Roofs offers an alternative Hamilton roofing solution to the weaknesses that asphalt shingle presents. While broken shingles are not visually appealing and require time and money to repair, metal roofs do not break. They are aesthetic and guarantee your protection for over 50 years without the need for repairs, maintenance, or replacement.
Benefits of Metal Roofing
Metal has superior qualities compared to alternative roofing materials. In Hamilton, roofing with metal will provide you with many benefits. These include:
Exceptional durability and longevity
If your contractor installs the metal roof correctly, it will last for between 40-70 years just like your house. Also, your metal roof will not require routine maintenance or repair in its lifetime.
A metal roof reflects solar heat. This reflection saves you energy by making your house cooler. Thus you use the cooling system for a shorter time. Also, the attic retains heat during the cold season, which makes your house warmer and lowers your heating costs.
Metal roofs have a Class A fire rating due to their outstanding resistance. Metal roofs are also noncombustible, which makes them suitable in areas that are prone to wildfires.
Total shedding of rain and snow
The panels used in metal roofing are impermeable to snow or rain because they are interlocked during installation. The panels are also hard and get slippery when wet; therefore, snow and rain slide off easily. In addition, dark tones on metal roofs attract solar heat, warm faster, and melt the snow.
Metal is lighter compared to other materials like asphalt shingles and concrete or clay tiles. You can overlay your metal roof over the existing roof without having to reinforce the structural support.
Metal roofing consists of 25% recycled material, and it is 100% recyclable at the end of its lifespan. Metal roofs also provide an excellent platform for eco-friendly activities such as the installation of solar panels and rainwater harvesting.
Many style options
Metal roofing panels come in a wide range of materials, shapes, colors, and finishes. There are more than 100 standard, premium, and custom color hues to choose from and a wide range of styles that resemble almost every other type of roofing material.
Low roof pitch
If your roof has a low pitch, you can install metal roofing without risking a leakage. A low roof pitch rises three inches vertically for every 12 horizontal inches.
Metal roofing can be customized to fit the design of your roof. There are options of metal products that can be adapted to suit any roof design, including rounded or intricately arched designs.
If you modify your home that is roofed using traditional materials, it will be hard to match the old installation with the new one because the color and design of the materials change frequently. However, metal roofing designs and colors are consistent. Therefore, you can easily add or modify your roof later.
When using other roofing materials, you must cover flashings, transitions, and dead valleys using sealants and adhesives, which are not very reliable. On metal roofs, you can cover the transitions and dead valleys using identical metal.
Resistance to pests, rodents and wild animals
Metal roofs are strong enough to prevent pests, rodents and wild animals from damaging them and gaining entry into the attic.
Resistance to moss and fungus
Metal roofs are 100% resistant to mildew, fungus or moss. Metal is an ideal roofing material for homes in heavily wooded areas that are susceptible to mold or moss.
Metal Roofing Myths and Facts
Metal is increasingly becoming popular as a roofing material. With the increased popularity comes an increase in the number of myths being propagated about metal roofing. In this section, we debunk these misconceptions and bring out the facts.
Myth: Metal roofs have limited color and style options
Fact: Metal roofing materials are produced in a wide variety of color and design options
You can customize your metal roof to resemble clay tiles, slate or shakes and to depict the beauty you want. You can also personalize the roof to your desired architectural design. Whichever color or style you choose, it comes with the added benefit of excellent durability and performance.
Myth: Metal roofing attracts lightning
Fact: Metal roofs do not increase chances of lightning strikes
Generally, lightning strikes whatever object is tallest or, the object it comes into contact with first, which is rarely your house. In the unlikely event that lightning strikes your home, metal is noncombustible. Therefore, your house will not catch fire. The energy from the lightning will be diffused harmlessly across the roof.
Myth: Metal roofing rusts
Fact: Metal roofs do not rust
Metal roofs are designed to maintain their original appearance for their entire lifetime. During manufacturing, metallic paint and aluminum are used to cover the metal roofing materials and to protect them from rain. Your roof can only rust if you deliberately expose it to gain the look of a slow and distinctive natural rust.
Wind and hail damage metal roofs
Fact: Metal roofs can withstand hail and wind
Normal-sized hailstones do not damage metal roofs. Even with huge hailstones, minor dents are almost unnoticeable on textured metal roofs. The roofs are also highly resistant to strong wind.
Myth: Metal roofs are loud
Fact: Metal roofs are surprisingly noiseless
During the installation of metal roofs, an underlayment containing solid sheathing is added to reduce noise. Even under the rain, metal roofs are quiet like other roofs.
Myth: Metal roofing does not offer resale value
Fact: Metal roofing increases the resale value
Metal roofing increases your house’s resale value because buyers opt for a durable and cost-effective roof. Standing seam metal roofing can recoup costs by between 85 – 95%, which increases the resale value by a range of 1 – 6%.
