Metal Roofing FAQs
In contrast, metal is a very practical solution. It lasts dramatically longer.
Only regular metal roofs that are installed with strapping (wooden slats) can be noisy. The gap this creates acts as a drum. A Roofs of Steel roof is installed directly onto your current roof. There is no gap.
With a Roofs of Steel roof, you are finished paying. It will last a lifetime. In addition, you will realize up to 35% in energy savings.
Take your real estate agent’s suggested asking price and give it a healthy boost.
In worst case scenario during a particularly extreme hailstorm, if there are one or two small dents, then these would simply blend in with the beautiful texture of the cedar or slate profiles.
Not with our roof! The panels are attached with interlocking tornado clips (yes, they can withstand winds of up to 200 km/h). The clips allow the panels to expand and contract without moving the clips. And if the clips don’t move, then the screws holding them down are not wiggled loose over the years. That means no maintenance. And no, other metal roofs do not have interlocking tornado clips, which is why those roofs do need maintenance.
The other advantage is that with a disposable roof, you need to have the solar panels removed and re-installed every time you re-roof or do maintenance. Our roof does not require maintenance and does not need to be replaced for a life-time.
A new type of solar panel is being developed that will be glued directly onto metal roofs. You are maximizing your future options.
- You save the labour cost for removal.
- It is an extra insulation layer.
- It acts as an extra sound barrier.
- The most important benefit of leaving the shingles, is because every time you remove them, the hundreds of nails keeping them in place are being torn out of the plywood. This leaves holes. And often, chunks of plywood come out.
With our roof, you can safely leave those shingles. Our underlay creates the perfect environment for the old shingles and for the plywood underneath. The special underlay can breathe. And while no water, ice or snow can penetrate it, moisture underneath can evaporate. Everything under the underlay will remain dry and breathable.
The Florida Solar Energy Center found that metal gained 34% less heat than asphalt shingles.
The Kynar500 finish used on a Roofs of Steel roof, is US Energy Star approved because it reflects so much heat.
Many regular metal roofs only have a thin layer of galvanization, which means that they often do rust. Ours is rated at G90. This translates into a long lifespan for your roof.
