Metal Roofing

Metal roofing systems are used quite frequently here in Colorado. Colorado has a
climate that has what we call freeze-thaw conditions which tends to have ice build up at
the eaves and has the potential of shortening the life expectancy of asphalt shingles.
Therefore many homeowners and contractors have chosen to go with a metal roofing system. According to the National Roofing Contractors Association, the popularity of metal roofing products has increased dramatically over the past decade, a clear sign that homeowners and builders are growing more and more aware of this product’s benefits.

As with everything else, there are many different profiles and colors to choose from. We
have the ability to manufacture a 1” or 1.5” standing seam profile that can be
mechanically attached or be manufactured as a snap-lock system. We also have the ability
to manufacture all types of specialty items such as chimney caps, dormers, or special
needed flashings for roofing systems.

Materials

Metal roofing materials are made primarily from aluminum and steel, but other materials, such as copper and alloys, are also used but can be very expensive.Steel and aluminum are by far the most common and sensible of available roofing materials because they are economical, hold paint finishes well (steel can be galvanized), and are durable. Aluminum is a relatively soft metal, so it is more prone to denting and damage and it is also more expensive than steel. On the flip side, aluminum won’t corrode the way steel can if the finish is compromised.

Metal roofs have a limited lifetime warranty that
is provided by the manufacturer.
