Metal roofing is an excellent option when is time to replace your existing roof because sheet metal roofs are lighter and are more resistant to impact, wind and fire. Properly installed metals roof (tin roof) are cost and energy efficient over the lifespan of your house. Yes, it will cost more up front, but the savings over the years on cooling and heating will more that pay for itself. Metal roofs are virtually maintenance free because, when installed properly, they are an interconnected metal armor protecting your home. The key here is the interconnected part because the metal clips and screws holding the roof together must be UL rated and spaced every 12 inches around the roof perimeter and ridgelines and every 24 inches everywhere else. The metal flashings should be secured with the same UL rated screws and at the same intervals as the roof if not closer because the metal flashings play an integral role on the performance of the whole metal roofing system. The underlayment under a metal roof is important as the metal roof itself because a low quality underlayment will deteriorate years if not decades before the metal roof needs to be replaced. A new metal roof in North Carolina has to be designed as a metal roofing system because a metal roof by itself will not perform to protect your home from extreme weather conditions. Replace an old shingle roof with a new metal roofing system that includes new drip edge, new ridge vent, new chimney and wall flashings, new rakes, new vent pipe flashings, new kitchen and bathroom vent flashings and new ridge cap flashings.
Some roofing contractors will leave one or two of these parts out of the metal roof system and the homeowner or property owner ends up paying for the roofer poor workmanship. Don’t be trapped on the price of a new metal roof; look at the details of the metal roofing estimate. Will the roofing contractor replace all wall and chimney flashings as he should? Will he replace the kitchen and bathroom vents and flash properly? will the ridge vent be installed in proportion to the size of your attic space? Type of underlayment to be used? All these steps are critical to a long lasting metal roofing system. Contact Excel Roofing Company today for your free metal roofing estimate.
