How expensive is metal roofing?
If you’re considering metal roofing, you should expect a considerable investment. It can cost 40-60% more than traditional asphalt roofing. Low bids tend to flip that “6” to a “9” and leave you with a roof that’s more susceptible to damage. If you want commercial grade agricultural steel, expect to pay anywhere from $450 to $550 a square. If you want standing seam without visible fasteners, the cost can vary from $600-$800 a square.
What about oil “canning” with metal roofing?
In the past, manufacturers made panels with fewer creases or bends in the sections between seams. This allowed the metal to shift more with expansion and contraction. We use Central States Manufacturing for our steel. One of the many reasons is they put creases down the long runs of the panels to add rigidity, longer life and better aesthetics.
Looking for maximum roof life and storm protection? Metal roofing may be the answer. For lasting beauty and great aesthetic appeal, metal roofs are a sure win.
How do I convert to a metal roof?
This question is typically asked after a storm has come through and destroyed your shingle roof. You’re tired of dealing with the headache and worry that comes with seeing red cell storms on the weather radar. Installing a new metal roof is as simple as removing your old shingles, inspecting your roof deck for good heath, installing new moisture barrier and going back on with metal.
How strong is a metal roof?
For all residential homes, we recommend .26-gauge steel. The difference between .29 and .26 is the difference between Class 4 impact resistance and a dimpled mess when a bad storm hits. The thickness of steel goes up when the gauge goes down, just like wire. The right gauge with an experienced installer will protect your home for decades.
How many layers can I have of asphalt shingles?
It really comes down to the local codes that have been adopted in your area. As company policy dictates, we will always check and determine the current number of layers, but we will not install more than one. While it was once more common, it is not a preferred practice to install more than one layer of asphalt shingles. If your home happens to have more than one layer, we feel very strongly that removing all layers and giving you a thorough deck inspection will help your home in the long run. After all, we stand behind our work.
When do I need a new asphalt roof?
There could be a few reasons why you need our services. Your roof could be nearing the end of it’s life, OR you and your neighbors have just experienced a hail storm. Don’t worry. There are specific guidelines to follow when this happens and we work with insurance companies like yours and know what they are looking for. Pictured below is a hail hit. In the wake of a storm, we know what to look for before you file a claim. If the damage doesn’t meet or exceed insurance requirements, you’re in the clear! In rare cases, it can be borderline and we will recommend you reinspect in a year.
If you DO have damage, we can help you navigate the claim and help you repair your roof and other damages to your home. Most roofing companies repair roofs and gutters. We have the capacity to help you get everything that may have been damaged repaired in your claim.
