If you think a metal roof would not be a good fit for your high end residence or your large scale commercial establishment in central Florida, think again. Ametal roofcan duplicate virtually all styles of standard roofing materials; it functions as well or better than traditional roofing materials; and metal roofs maintain their beauty, undiminished, for many years. Not only is metal roofing suitable for both high end residences and commercial uses, itholds up extremely well in severe weather. Steep slope standing-seam metal roofing stands up particularly well to hurricane force winds, and this wind resistance of metal roofing has many advantages over other roofing systems.
Metal roof is predictable
Unlike asphalt or wood, which tend to deteriorate under extreme conditions, metal roofs are consistent in their performance, especially in high wind situations. As wind passes over a house, it creates an uplift effect, as if it is trying to suck the roof off! Wind pressure has the ability to lift some roofing systems, but metal roofing panels are engineered to withstand almostany wind pressure.
The appeal of metal roofs
During the last 20 years, a new and exciting selection of metal roof materials has hit the market. The new styles, colors, textures, and shapes are market-friendly answers to the need for durable, fire-resistant, lightweight roofing that makes a high end residence a true showcase home, and large scale commercial buildings resonate with success. Premier Roofing in Orlando Florida has seen an upsurge of interest in metal roofs because of these technological advancements.
Metal roofs are favored for being fire-resistant, for the speed of installation, and for their longevity. Metal roofing is also surprisingly lightweight and great at reflecting heat from the sun. Primarily made from aluminum and steel, other materials, such as copper and alloys, are also used in manufacturing metal roofs. Some sheet-style materials, such as the popular standing-seam roofing, are favored by architects for their contemporary clean appearance.
Metal roofs are versatile
Metal roofing can also be formed into shapes that imitate Spanish tile, wood shakes, or slate, which are given multi-layer factory finishes that include granulated-stone topcoats to complete a very realistic effect.
Frank talk about metal roofs
Metal roofing is typically a fairly expensive choice; however, most metal roofs carry exceptionally long-term warranties, making them especially cost efficient over the life cycle of a roof.In most cases, despite the fact that metal roofs can be installed directly over most other roofing material, metal roofing requires expert installation by a professional metal roofer. Repairs and modifications can be trickier than with more common roofing materials such as asphalt or wood shingles, and it is highly recommended that high end residential metal roofs be inspected for loose or sprung fasteners, on a regular basis.
Large scale commercial use
Metal roofs beautify and protect many fine large scale commercial sites throughout northern and central Florida. The many designs of metal roofing make them a perfect choice for commercial use. Built to last and to exemplify style and commerce, examples of large scale commercial projects such as the Destin Commons Mall in Destin Florida can be seen at www.PremierRoofingFlorida.com.
