Roofing Sheet Metal: Sustainability And Durability Guaranteed!
When you build a house, you usually have an architect draw up plans so that you don’t end up with one style on the first floor and another style at the top of the house. The roof is sometimes the most visible part of the house. It is a natural extension to the style that your house is built in. The roof protects the house from sun and the rain-much like public relations and on-going branding activities protect a company from deterioration of its image, including losing marketing identity and crumbling to the competition. That’s one of the reasons why roofing sheet metal is important. Roofing Sheet metal, is best defined as a material that has grown increasingly well- known for residential roofing in latter years, begins as “flat stock” (flat metal panels) that roofing manufacturers form into roofing panels and components.
There are bundles of benefits of using roofing sheet metal. First, it benefits your roof preventing water from pooling on it where it could otherwise cause a leak or a crack. Although it is called a flat roof, these types of roofing sheet metal are in fact slightly sloped and these are designed to direct water off and into the gutters/drains. Another key advantage of roofing sheet metal is its durability. A quality metal roof can last 50 years or even longer when properly maintained. Metal roofs resist the elements extremely well, with natural protection against fires, sparks, hail and wind. Roofing sheet metals are very tough and highly resistant to hail damage, much more so than asphalt/fiberglass shingles. In fact, many metal roofing products have the highest impact resistance and hail rating granted by the insurance commissions in the hail belt regions of the U.S., Some insurance companies even provide a reduced rate for metal roofs. Basic galvanized steel roofing sheet metal has proven to last more than 40 years on existing buildings. Current coatings and galvanic-protection techniques allow new sheet metal panels to last even longer. Analysis of life-cycle costs has proven that binding more durable construction products with lower maintenance costs is better for the environment and makes good business sense. Roofing sheet metal also contributes to sustainability. Sheet metal used in roofing systems often is made from recycled steel and managers can recycle it at the end of its performance life. Its installation also creates less construction waste and the longer the lives of roofing sheet metal means less waste goes into landfills than with more conventional roofing replacements. Roofing sheet metal materials are typically priced by square foot. Prices vary widely, depending on the material and finish ranging from a low price of about $1.50 per square foot to about $6 per square foot.
