The Top Metal Roofing Experts Serving Pittsburgh

Metal Roofing Contractor in Pittsburgh

Metal roofs have many distinct advantages over other roofing materials. They are durable, lightweight, easy to install and are fireproof. With a wide variety of colors and styles to choose from, Home Genius Exteriors can achieve virtually any look you want for your home.

Types of Metal Roofing

Metal offers a wide spectrum of variations and materials under its umbrella, all of which can be installed by Home Genius Exteriors. These are some of the most popular metal roofing varieties:

Aluminium Roofing

Aluminium roofing has many benefits that homeowners and business owners are attracted to. While it is durable, corrosion-resistant, cost-effective, and eco-friendly, aluminum roofing also doesn’t rust, enables smoother water runoff, and reflects the sun better than other metal roofing materials. This also makes it energy-efficient.

Steel Roofing

A popular choice for roofing in hail-prone areas particularly, steel roofing is super durable and low maintenance, which ranks it high on the longevity scale. Like most metal roofing materials, the heat reflection also contributes to reduced energy use and costs.

Copper Roofing

Copper as a roofing material is definitely one of the more rare metal roofing alternatives, but it’s unique finish is one of its stand-out features and one that is bound to increase the home’s curb appeal. Given its light weight and malleability, it can be fashioned in a variety of ways to mimic tiles, shingles, brick, etc.

Standing Seam Metal Roofing

Standing-seam is the most popular iteration of metal roofing. Essentially, this type of roofing raises the seams beyond the level of the actual roof, thereby creating panels that run from the ridge to the eaves of the roof. Its interlocking system ensures that a watertight seal is created, and also makes it one of the strongest, most reliable roof systems on the market today.

Corrugated Metal Roofing

Corrugated metal is made from galvanized steel rolled into a wavy pattern. This corrugation process enhances the strength of the material, making corrugated metal roofing a tough metal roofing option. It’s often seen in industry and less on homes, but its light weight, durability and water-shedding features are making it a viable option for the home.

Metal Shingles

Metal shingles is one of the most popular options for residential roofing. Its major appeal is the combination of all the great characteristics of metal, while giving homeowners the ability to customize the look and feel to their preference. Metal shingles can mimic the finish of more premium roofing alternatives like slate, clay and concrete tiles and cedar, at a fraction of the cost, and with strength, durability and longevity guaranteed.

Advantages of Metal Roofs

Metal is one of the most reliable roofing materials on the market for both residential and commercial roofs. These are some of the characteristics that make it a great roofing option:

Durability

Metal roofing holds up well against all types of harsh weather conditions. It is even able to withstand debris and animal activity. The impact of extreme weather in the Pittsburgh area makes metal roofing an excellent choice for durability.

Low maintenance

Maintenance on a metal roof is so easy that you could almost install it and forget about it. As with any roofing material, regular maintenance is a must, but the upkeep on a metal roof is so limited, that compared to other solutions like shingles, concrete, or tile, you’ll have a worry-free roof and save on costs in the long run.

Longevity

Its durability and ease of maintenance contribute to metal roofs lasting a very long time – up to 50-70 years. That means that you may very well never have to replace your home’s roof again in your lifetime.

Environmentally friendly

In most cases, a quality metal roof will be made of anything from 35% – 95% recyclable and/or recycled material. While the lifespan of a metal roof will be very long, when it does come time to remove it for whatever reason, the entire thing will be 100% recyclable, as opposed to being dumped in a landfill. In addition, its heat-reflecting capabilities means the homeowner will save on home energy costs too, by reducing the need for cooling in the home.

Value

While your metal roof will cost more up front to install, it will cost less over its lifetime. The long-term investment is well worth it considering the reduction of maintenance and repair costs over the roof’s lifetime – a far cry from alternatives like asphalt shingles. On top of that, metal roof warranties also tend to be exceptional.

FAQs

Metal is one of the roofing materials giving homeowners minimal hassle and bang for their buck in terms of longevity. While some materials may require a roof replacement every 20-30 years, metal roofs can enjoy a lifespan of 40-70 years. This means you may never have to replace your home’s roof in your lifetime again. Many have this misconception of noise caused by metal roofing, thanks in large part due to older methods of installation. These days metal roofs are installed over solid roof deck, which, apart from providing a foundation, also functions to absorb sound. This greatly reduces noise caused by rain or hail and what you hear is likely at the same pitch as other roofing material types. One of metal’s best characteristics is the that fact that it reflects heat in summer, which can greatly reduce the home’s temperature and mitigate the need for any energy-guzzling artificial cooling.
