Metal Roof Installation
A unique touch to your home
A metal roof installation can add a unique touch to your home. Not only that, but it can help lower your heating and cooling bills throughout the year.
It wasn’t that long ago when people thought metal was only for commercial roofing applications. Now, it is becoming a popular residential roofing product, and for a good reason. Not only is it recyclable, energy-efficient, and relatively easy to install, you can also expect a lifespan of 50+ years.
At South Peak Roofing & Exteriors, we provide superior roofing services to all of southern Alberta. This includes metal roof installation, maintenance, and repairs.
Below are the two common metal roofing profiles we install:
Corrugated Roofing Profile
Corrugated metal roofing, also commonly called ribbed profile, has a distinct look that’s instantly recognizable. This lightweight metal roof is easy to install and will not attract pests into your home. Corrugated metal roofing is also durable and resistant to extreme weather conditions.
It comes in several steel gauges and colour options, making it a popular choice among homeowners. Gauge refers to the thickness of the metal used. Typically, we install 29 gauge but can also do 26 or 24 depending on the colour and profile.
Standing Seam Metal Roof Profile
Standing seam metal roofs are most often found on commercial properties or high-end residential homes. Standing seam is durable, energy-efficient, and beautiful. It also has a fresh, bold look that complements your home while giving it a contemporary feel.
One of the unique features about it is that the fasteners are hidden. You can choose from snap-lock, mechanical seam, batten panels, and nail/fastener flange options. Standing seam metal roofs are a little more expensive than the corrugated option. However, it comes in a large range of colours and is generally available as in 26 gauge.
Benefits Of Installing A Metal Roofing System
Metal roofs have several benefits. They are energy-efficient, recyclable, durable, and long-lasting. When properly installed and well maintained, a metal roof could last up to 50 years.
When properly installed, a metal roof can seal water out and isn’t impacted as much by high winds we can get in southern Alberta. In the winter, it quickly sheds snow, so you don’t have to worry about moisture making its way into your home.
Metal roof maintenance and upkeep is relatively simple. Every 10 to 12 years, all of the fasteners should be changed. This is because the rubber stopper on the fastener can dry out over time, which can cause a roof leak if left unattended.
Another benefit of choosing a metal roofing system is the fact that it is an eco-friendly option. This is because it is made up of nearly 98% of recycled aluminum.
When it comes to a metal roof, the common question people have is about rust. Today’s metal sheets and coils are protected with a specially engineered coating designed to prevent rust from forming.
