Metal Roofs – often Aluminum or Copper are great options on homes for many reasons.  First, metal roofs look great on older, newer and modern style homes.   Metal roofs come in a multitude of colors, styles and are long lasting. We’ve installed copper and metal roofs on townhomes, condos, apartment buildings, commercial properties and brownstones throughout center city Philadelphia and metro Philly suburbs.  Universal Roofing is full service roofing contractor and one of the best roofing companies Philadelphia also serving the Philly suburbs.

Metal Roofing Types

There are many types of metal roofing:  Metal Shingle/Slate, Metal Tile, Metal Shake, Vertical Panels and Natural Metals.  Metal roof materials include:  steel, aluminum, copper, zinc and  titanium.

Metal Shingle/Slate:  Metal Shingles create the distinctive look of smooth, uniform slate tiles.

Metal Tiles:  Metal Tiles have the graceful curves of classic tile, but the lightness and strength of stone-coated steel.

Metal Shake: Metal shake is the investment grade alternative to traditional wooden shake. You’ll love the authentic look of wood, while gaining a variety of color choices with longer lasting, more durable metal.

Vertical Panel Tiles: Steel roofing panels are often used on commercial, industrial and farm buildings. Today’s technological advances in building materials have made it both practical and economical to use pre-painted vertical panels in virtually all color combinations for residential use.

Natural Metal Tiles: Self-healing materials that naturally develop a protective layer or patina as they age. Natural materials are ideal for urban districts or historic settings, because the surface desired will blend seamlessly into the surroundings. They are environmentally friendly natural products and 1o0% recyclable.

Metal Roof are Investments:   Metal, especially copper roofs, are expensive.  The price of copper has skyrocketed in the past few years.   That being said, installed properly by a certified roofing contractor, a metal roof,can last a lifetime while typical asphalt shingle or other composite roof has a lifetime of 15-20 years.   Metal roofs also tend to increase the resale value of your home thus mitigating the actual upfront cost of the roof.

Multiple Roof Styles and Finishes: Metal Roofs come in multiple materials, colors, shapes and sizes.

Energy Efficient: Metal roofing in both light and dark colors reflects heat effectively to reduce cooling loads in the summer and insulate homes during the winter. This can help to lower energy bills.

Long Warranties: Most metal roofing comes with a true 30 to 50 year manufacturer warranty, plus a workmanship warranty from the installer. Talk to your local MRA Member contractor to learn more about the metal roofing warranties that are available.

Common Myths of Metal Roofing

Lightning: A metal roof does not increase the likelihood of lightning striking.  However, if your home were hit by lightning, your metal roof would disperse the energy safely throughout the structure. Since metal roofing isn’t combustible or flammable, it’s a low risk and desirable roofing option where severe weather is concerned, especially for lightning.

Noise: A common misconception is that a metal roof will be noisier than other types of roofing. When installed with solid sheathing, a metal roof on your home will actually silence noise from rain, hail and bad weather, many times much better than other roofing materials.

Rust: Today’s metal roofing systems are built to last. Steel metal roofing has a “metallic coating” made of either zinc or a combination of zinc and aluminum. This metallic coating prevents rust from forming and is bonded to the steel at the factory. Paint is then applied over the metallic coating to provide the long-lasting color homeowners desire

Dents: In most cases, a metal roof can withstand decades of abuse from extreme weather like hail, high winds, and heavy snow. Today’s systems also have a 150-mph wind rating (equal to an F2 tornado), meaning your metal roof is also safe from wind gusts that can accompany hail storms.

Durability: Many people think you can’t (or shouldn’t) walk on a metal roof, but the truth is that you can safely walk any metal roof without damaging it. Before you walk your roof, however, we recommend you talk to your installed or roof manufacturer first. They will have the details on how to walk the particular roof you have, based on the style you chose and your roof pitch.

I had roof damage after a hurricane came through and needed a whole new roof because of the age of the old roof. Joe Taylor was extremely helpful and professional through the whole process - he gave me a fair quote and helped me deal with the insurance company once we signed the contract. He was always available to help with any questions I had.
