Metal roofing has been steadily growing in popularity as home and building owners seek to find a durable, high-performing, long-lasting roofing solution for their property. While the cost of metal roofing is initially higher than that of other roofing materials, the return on that investment can be greater in the long run, with metal roofs lasting twice as long.
Another reason for the popularity of metal roofing is that in addition to lasting 50 years or more, metal roofs can often be repainted instead of replaced, saving even more money in years to come. A metal roof is appealing to potential home buyers and can add to the value and curb appeal of a home.
Properly installed metal roofs are extremely durable and provide protection from high winds, hail and fire, with minimal maintenance required over the lifespan of the system.
Metal roofs are also available in a wide variety of colors and styles that are sure to compliment any style of home.

Metal roofs are naturally very tough and highly resistant to hail damage, as compared to other roofing materials.
Hail is not able to penetrate a metal roof and most metal roofing systems have the highest hail resistance rating as established by Underwriters’ Laboratories, the leading product and safety testing organization.
Many insurance companies offer a discount on homeowners insurance for homes with metal roofs.
Most metal roofing can withstand wind gusts of up to 140 miles per hour, the equivalent of an F2 tornado. They also are not as susceptible to wind uplift since metal roofs typically consist of large, interlocking panels.
The way metal roofs are attached to the home also offers added protection against wind uplift. Metal roofs stay put during storms, reucing the risk of water penetration from wind-driven rains.
Metal roofs can truly last a lifetime for your home, with most providing protection for 50 years or more with little maintenance. They won’t warp, crack or rot over time like other roofing materials.
A metal roof delivers powerful protection against the elements and is one of the most trusted roofing systems in harsh climates.
Corrugated metal panels are aesthetically pleasing with their clean lines and traditional style. Their sleek look is preferred by many homeowners who want the added curb appeal and long-lasting protection.
Often called standing seam metal, the panels are prepainted and available in just about any color to complement your home or building.
Standing seam metal panels are one of the most durable metal roofing systems. They feature a raised or standing seam that connect the panels together and are attached with concealed fasteners.
There are no holes that need to be drilled to attach the panels and because the fasteners are concealed, they are not exposed to the elements.
A beautiful design element to homes, barns, or other structures can be a convex or concave roofline. These these type of metal roofs are hand-formed and crafted to be a perfect fit.
Often used as an accent, concave or convex copper roofs add a design flair and custom feel to a roofline.

Metal roofing is considered to be one of the most sustainable roofing systems available. Metal is recyclable at the end of its service life and most metal roofing materials are manufactured using up to 25 percent recycled materials.
Because metal roofs can often be installed over existing asphalt roofs, the need for tear off is eliminated and the existing asphalt shingles won’t be sent to a landfill. The recyclability of metal also keeps waste out of landfills, lessening the overall environmental impact.
Metal roofing is a highly energy-efficient roofing material and is estimated to save up to 40 percent in energy costs. Metal roofs are able to reflect more solar radiation than an asphalt shingle, thus reducing the amount of energy required to cool the home or building. Many cool roof metal roofing systems are ENERGY STAR® rated, qualifying them in some cases for tax incentives.
In addition, metal roofs are the ideal roofing material to hold solar systems. There are solar attachment methods that do not require making penetrations in the metal. A solar system combined with metal roofing can make this the most efficient system available.
Metal roofs are truly beautiful and can instantly add curb appeal to your home. They are available in virtually any color to complement your home or building.
Metal roofs are long lasting and come with warranties against, chipping, fading, rusting and chalking.
A metal roof can last up to 50+ years or more with little maintenance, can often be repainted versus replaced, and may even increase the resale value of your home.
Metal roofs’ ability to withstand hail, wind and fire make them the ideal choice for your home or building. When you invest in a metal roof, you are getting a roof for a lifetime, not one that will need to be replaced in 25 years.
We take pride in our workmanship and invite you to enjoy some of the beautiful metal roofs that we have installed for central Pennsylvania homeowners.
