Metal roofing has a lot of benefits. It’s long lasting, energy efficient, and comes in a variety of colors and patterns. A metal roof is a great investment for any property, and can increase its value. Metal roofs may cost more initially than an asphalt shingle roof. But because they last so long and are energy efficient, and because they may also qualify for insurance discounts, your investment pays off quickly.
Not all roofing contractors are qualified to install metal roofing. Make sure when you’re getting quotes from roofing contractors, that they have the experience and training needed. Faulty installation of metal roofing can void the warranty.
The Dan Banks Company has been installing metal roofing in Cecil County and surrounding areas since 1991. We have many satisfied customers, and would be happy to provide you with references. Clients include homeowners, businesses and farming operations.
Options for Metal Roofs
You have a lot of choices when it comes to metal roofs. Metal roofing is available in a wide variety of designs and colors to work with any style home or business. Metal roofs can be installed with a standard vertical seam profile, or a corrugated metal barn style roof.
Residential metal roofing is usually made of steel or aluminum. Copper, zinc and titanium are also sometimes used in specialized architectural applications for homes. A metallic coating protects your metal roof against rusting. Most residential metal roofing also has a paint coating on top of the metallic coating. The paint finishes have an attractive quality, but can also help save energy by reflecting sunlight instead of absorbing it.
And, by choosing a metal roof, you can save money and do your part for the environment. Standard roofing products, including asphalt shingles, contribute an estimated 20 billion pounds of waste to U.S. landfills annually. In contrast, metal roofing installation can often be done over an existing roof. That gets rid of the cost and environmental impact of tear-off and disposal.
And metal roofing lasts longer than most other roofing materials. With proper installation, a metal roof can last 50 years or more. To top it off, metal roofing requires very little maintenance and looks beautiful the whole time. What’s not to like?
We can also install new gutters and soffit at the time we install your metal roof, if you would like to update everything to give a pulled together look.
