Are Metal Roofs Durable?

When properly installed, metal roofs can withstand wind gusts up to 140 mph. Most metal roofs will not corrode in Gravity, 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.

Can Metal Roofs Trap Moisture?

Water can become trapped anywhere, on any roof, because of poor-quality installation or repair. This can eventually cause serious damage to the underlying structure. That's why it's especially important, in an area like Gravity, Iowa, that you get professional installation from experienced and skilled Metal Roof specialists from Cook Roofing Company to install your new metal roof.

Low-grade metals may also be thinner and less durable and more prone to buckling and denting. Thin metal will dent more easily during hail storms and installation. And if using architectural or R panels (exposed fastener metal roofing), the fasteners must be tightened straight, so as not to deform the neoprene washers that seal the fastener holes. Those fasteners must be replaced every so often. Cook Roofing Company can help you decide what kind of Metal Roof is right for your house in Gravity.

Is a Metal Roof Low Maintenance?

When choosing a new roof an important question you might ask yourself is “How much time will I have to put into maintaining it?” This is a great question, because no one wants a new roof that requires constant attention and upkeep. Once installed, metal roofs are extremely low maintenance, needing only basic cleaning of major debris they can collect to avoid moisture buildup. Once or twice a year it is beneficial to clear out leaves, branches, or anything a storm might have blown up there to ensure your metal roof dries out properly and no rust or corrosion is able to form.

Major maintenance should be done every 20-25 years in the form of resealing, repainting, and changing out worn-down parts such as gaskets. The specialist at [iss_page_name] have years of experience installing and repairing metal roofs, and will install it correctly the first time so that it remains easy maintenance for you.

FAQ

Will a metal roof be too heavy for small structures?
No. In fact, metal roofs are lighter than asphalt shingle roofs by a greater margin. They are also lighter than slate and concrete tiles. You should not worry about metal roofing overloading your small structure.
Does it cost more to buy and install a metal roof than a typical roof?
Yes. Metal roofing is considered a premium material, and thus you should expect it to cost more than an asphalt shingle roof. However, in the long-run, it becomes cheaper since it lasts for decades. In addition, your new metal roof will add your home’s resale value and help you save on your energy bills thanks to its reflective effect, which makes it less absorbent of heat.
Will metal roofing increase noise in my home when it rains?
If there is no insulation between the metal roof and the interior, metal roofs can be noisy. This is more common in barns, sheds, and smaller homes in warmer climates. In most modern homes, though, there is enough insulation and sound barrier between the roof and the inside of the house that it dampens the sound. Additional soundproofing can be installed to lessen the sound even more, making it practically silent.
