Sheet metal is the material that is currently making a comeback on our RoofMI roofs, particularly because it represents a choice of roofing that is very advantageous for residential buildings, homes, businesses or industrial buildings. The roofing sheet is a material with multiple styles, profiles and colors, the main advantages of which are:
A MATERIAL OF GREAT DURABILITY
As one of the most durable materials, sheet metal has an exceptionally long service life of up to 50 years on a roof, if properly maintained. Sheet metal offers a considerable advantage over other materials such as asphalt shingles, which have a shelf life of 15 to 30 years. Even though it is more expensive to purchase than other roofing materials, the sheet metal has a long service life that is very favorable to its buyer and thus saves the buyer money Long term.
CUSTOMIZATION AND RECYCLABLE MATERIAL
Sheet metal is a metal that, although it is used as roofing material, can be painted and therefore customized to the desired aesthetic, to dress a home or a store. Sheet metal roofs are elements that add a certain cachet to homes and thus increase their value. The sheet is sometimes criticized for being aesthetically flat because it is often not known that sheet metal roofs are carefully worked by the roofers and that one can very simply improve their appearance, in particular thanks to the painting. Another major benefit of acquiring a sheet metal roof is that it can be recycled at the end of its life, unlike most other roofing materials that have only one possible use.
VERY LIGHT MATERIAL
Even if you cannot install your sheet metal roof yourself, because its installation requires the know-how of experienced roofers, the lightness of the sheet is a significant advantage for anyone looking for a solid but delicate roof. Indeed, this advantage allows the sheet to cover houses but also sheds or garages that cannot bear a lot of weight. In addition, its lightness does not prevent the protection against noise from the weather for example because this material can be isolated to avoid disturbances.
AN EFFECTIVE, SOLID MATERIAL THAT REQUIRES LITTLE MAINTENANCE
In terms of its effectiveness to cover and therefore protect a building, the sheet is also a preferred material because it can hold and withstand all weather without rusting. The sheet is also incombustible and therefore can only deteriorate with time. As a result, the sheet is one of the materials that requires the least maintenance. A simple visual inspection at the end of the season and especially in early spring and autumn is usually sufficient.
EASY INSTALLATION MATERIAL
Because it can be installed summer and winter, a sheet metal roof is particularly practical in case of a hard blow on your old roof. Within 2 to 5 days, professional roofers can install your new metal roof. Depending on your building, they may eventually offer you a device to retain snow and an insulating device. Also, a roof covering company must also know thoroughly how to design the sheet metal roof so that it adheres perfectly to the structure of the roof and thus prevents the eruption of rain or snow inside the building.
