There are many roof coverings to choose from and several of them would work on your home or commercial building. The wide range includes asphalt shingles, metal, shake, slate, tile, and single-ply roof systems like TPO membrane, E.P.D.M., P.V.C. membrane, modified bitumen membrane, etc.
Perhaps the best roof out there is a metal roof. Of course, it must fit the use, but metal roofs look great, perform well, and last a very long time. They also have high wind warranties which make them good on the coast and in wide open spaces.
There are many types of metal roofs. They come in steel, aluminum, copper, stainless steel, tin, etc. They also come in different thicknesses, shapes, and profiles. The paint finishes vary too and have various life expectancies and colors. Some have exposed fasteners and some have hidden fasteners, which are better. The price range is immense also.
Andrews Roofing has a metal roof panel machine. We buy sheets or coils (rolls) of metal material and run it through this machine to manufacture the specific width, length, and shape or profile of the roof panel. Most panels have “standing seams” and make up “standing seam metal roofs.” These are the ones you see all over town.
Many shopping centers have metal mansard roofs on the front of the building to dress it up with a flat roof covering the bulk of the building. Many roofs with shingles have metal accents. We install alot of whole house and commercial jobs too.
To find out the best metal roof for your structure ask an Andrews Roofing rep or another skilled and experienced roofing pro for help.
Most metal roofs will last your lifetime so it will be the last roof you ever have to pay for. They don’t leak either, as long as they are installed correctly.
Thanks for reading.
