There are many factors to weigh when choosing the right roof for your building project. A key benefit of metal roofing is that it positively impacts the building’s performance by being a durable and sustainable solution. Many of the metal roofing systems outperform traditional shingles. Metal panels can help you achieve all the functional and aesthetic needs of your building’s design.
A significant advantage of metal roofing and wall panels over traditional roofing materials is longevity. Due to the long-lasting nature of steel, your roofing panels will have a longer lifespan and won’t need to be replaced as frequently compared to traditional roofing materials.
Based on a study by the Metal Construction Association (MCA), the life-expectancy of low-slope, unpainted Galvalume® — 55% aluminum-zinc alloy coated steel — steel standing seam metal roofing (SSR) system is 60 years. With the average service life of a commercial building also being 60 years — according to LEED v4 — it’s unlikely a Galvalume metal roof will need replacing.
Another one of the metal roofing benefits is durability. Metal is widely known as a resilient material and a strong match for extreme weather conditions.
Supported by third party testing, metal roofing systems offer the following:
Capable of withstanding up to 140 mph winds, metal roofs are strong contributors to durable, weathertight building envelopes.
One of the metal roofing system advantages is that they are sustainable and energy-efficient:
Using Cool Roof finishes, much of the sun’s infrared radiation is reflected and keeps the roof surface temperature lower than uncoated or traditional roofing materials, offering energy savings, including significant reductions in HVAC costs.
All of these metal roofing benefits make them the best choice for agricultural, commercial, residential and post-frame building applications.
