Are Metal Roofs Durable?
When properly installed, metal roofs can withstand wind gusts up to 140 mph. Most metal roofs will not corrode in Corydon, IA, as long as the right type is chosen for this area’s climate. Coatings and treatments are available to provide even more protection.
Depending on the thickness of the metal you choose, metal roofing can withstand hail of up to 2″ in diameter, as well as other impacts such as blown debris. The thickness is referred to as “gauge,” with the smaller numbers indicating thicker and stronger material. For example, 29 gauge is thinner than 26 gauge, of the two most common thicknesses available. 26 gauge is much more resistant to denting from hail than 29 gauge.
It is important to note that sometimes hail does still dent metal roofs. Cook Roofing Company suggests that you maintain insurance coverage on your new metal roof, even though carriers often suggest an exclusion to save money. Call us at 515-305-3253 to find out more about metal roofs today.
Are Metal Roofs More Expensive Than Shingle Roofs?
While a shingle roof may cost less upfront, the long-life and durability of a metal roof can save money in the long run. A standing seam metal roof, for example, can cost two to three times the amount of a traditional shingle roof, but can last anywhere from 40-60 years. If you plan on staying in your current home long enough a metal roof will likely benefit you, although when you do sell your home the addition of a metal roof should make your home value go up.

How Much Maintenance Will My Metal Roof Need?
One of the appeals of a metal roof is their long-lasting durability, but how often will your roof need to be serviced? Metal roofs are built to last decades, resist rust and water damage, and will dry out more quickly than a traditional roof.
The roof itself should not need much attention once installed other than some basic cleaning to keep it free of leaves, debris, or other foreign objects which may unknowingly cause water to collect. As for long term care, about every 20 years you should have your roof resealed and repainted, as well as checking any replacing certain parts like old gaskets.
