There are many base metal options that can be used when making a metal roof. Many roofing contractors choose aluminum for their metal roofing systems because this material is durable, lightweight and corrosion-resistant. CQ Construction and Roofing discusses aluminum roofing systems and what makes them good.
Characteristics of Aluminum Roofs
Aluminum roofs are notable for their corrosion resistance. They will never rust, making it an ideal roofing material for homes near the coast. Its rust resistance also gives aluminum roofs a long life span. Practically all aluminum roofs are pre-painted and manufacturers offer aluminum roofs in all kinds of roof designs including shingle, tile, slate and standing seam profiles. Aluminum roofs are also environmentally friendly because they are manufactured from a large percentage of recycled material.
For example, one square of aluminum roofing can use as many as 1152 aluminum beverage cans. Recycled content for aluminum roofs can reach as high as 95%. Aluminum roofs are also lightweight. They weigh as low as 50 pounds per square. A square is equal to 100 square feet. This makes aluminum roofs easy to install for an expert in roof repair and roof replacement.
Why Install a Metal Roof?
Installing a metal roof can have many benefits for your home. Metal roofs are incredibly durable and they are immune to moisture. This makes them perfect for humid environments or areas with plenty of rain. Metal roofs are also unaffected by the sun and won’t become damaged by solar heat. In addition, there are metal roofing systems that can improve your home’s energy efficiency.
