Metal and Aluminum Roofing
This type of roofing has become a lot more popular thanks to its durability. Also, over the past few years metal and aluminum roofing have gotten a bit of a makeover. What we mean by that is, that these days you can draw out a roofing design that you could at another time maybe only obtain through tiles or shingles and add metal or aluminum components. You can essentially get the best of both worlds. You’ll get durability that is essentially unmatched by any other type of roof. At the same time you can still add that unique design that you were thinking about.
Is Metal Or Aluminum Roofing Much More Expensive Than Other Types of Roofing?
Ultimately price tags are going to be determined by the people that you buy from. At the same time if you have to pay a couple like us to get the job done then the price on the service can really be compared to buying shingles at your home improvement store. Usually though, you can expect to put down a little heftier investment. Metal roofs though are meant to last even 4 times more than regular shingle roofs. It’s not just about the long term durability, you really don’t need to do much to these roofs to keep them looking good. Therefore the investment pays off relatively quickly.
Which Is Better Metal Or Aluminum Roofing?
There are two main differences that you’re going to be able to find between the two. The life expectancy and the price tag are the most significant differences. Naturally, real metal is meant to last more and cost a little more than aluminum. From there, the sound that any impact will make on each surface will differ. If you’re really picky you can visually tell the difference. The way we see it both are very much viable options.
All Sorts Of Unique Designs
We’ve mentioned this briefly, metal roofing is not just something that you should be looking for because of its durability. These days we can create metal sheets for example that we’ll install and the final product will look very similar to what you would get with shingles or tiles. There are also other types of roofs that we can design. Of course, there is not going to be any type of an issue with coloring your roof any which way. There are a bunch of options for you with these types of roofs.
Gutters As Durable As Your Roofing
We talk a little bit in our gutter page about the fact that your gutters may not be as durable as the rest of your roof. If you’re thinking about adding metal roofing to a home because of its durability it can be a good idea to make sure that you’re adding durable gutters as well. Copper gutters are the common choice for durable gutters. They can certainly work well with both aluminum and metal roofing options.
