Roofing (cont., pg. 5)



Metal Roofs

Metal roofing (particularly copper) has long been used as an accent over bay windows.  It is now becoming a more common choice for the main roof of the house.

Metal roofing for houses is most commonly galvanized steel.

It is lightweight, installs quickly, and has excellent durability.

It will be less expensive than the premium roofing materials, but more expensive than asphalt shingles.

It is fire-resistant and does a good job of reflecting summer sun.

Metal roofs can be noisy when pounded by rain.  But there are steps you can take to alleviate noise.

Metal roofs can dent (particularly copper and aluminum) in hailstorms.

Metal shingles are available, which create a tiled look.

Consultation with your building supply representative and your roofing contractor will help you make the best choice.
