Probably not. Many factors are considered by underwriters of insurance companies in determining if a risk will be insured and how much the premium will be. //
Metal roofs cost more than shingled roofs. You can expect to pay 30 percent more for a metal roof, compared shingle roof. Metal roofing can withstand higher mile per hour winds, treacherous weather even fire. Metal roofs cost more in the beginning than a shingled roof but actually save money on homeowners insurance.
Metal roofing is an excellent choice in wet areas. New metal options are rust-resistant and waterproof. The solid metal surface also resists algae growth. Hail might dent metal, but hail can damage almost any roof. Flat sheets of metal roofing also have more wind resistance than most shingle roofing. Hurricane-force winds can blow shingles off the roof.
The method of installing metal barrel roofing will vary greatly depending on the particular brand of metal barrel roofing. Check with the manufacturer of your particular metal barrel roofing. There are two main types of metal barrel roofing: those that are in long panels, cut to the foot from 3' to 20', and those that are in smaller shingle size sections about 14" by 50". With the longer panels, you generally screw the panels in using screws with neoprene rubber washers. The next metal barrel panel then laps over the the first panel, and so on... With the smaller shingle sized metal barrel roofing, the installation varies greatly. Many of them must be installed over wooden boards placed horizontally on the roof. Others can be installed directly over the decking. The panels are then nailed or screwed in place over the boards or decking. Trims vary greatly by the type of metal barrel tile, but are an important part of the roof. Again, it is important that you find out the manufacture of your metal barrel roofing, as they will be able to give more specific installation instructions, and sometimes videos.
Metal roof systems in most cases weigh between 1 to 3 pounds per square foot. The actual weight is dependent upon metal gauge and profile of the panel. Metal roof systems are considered a lightweight roof covering compared to their counterparts. The following illustrates the different types of other roofing materials and their respective weights per square foot:Asphalt Shingle: 2 - 3.5lbs psfTextured Asphalt Shingle: 3.5 - 5lbs psfWood Shingles/Shakes: 3.5 - 4.5lbs psfClay or Concrete Tile: 5.5 - 10lbs psf
Clay tile roofs are actually more stable and will last longer than either asphalt shingles or metal roofs. The ease of installation is significant with asphalt shingles. Metal roofs tend to be noisy and attract lightning. Tile roofs are heavy and need to have stronger roof framing. Metal roofing will take over by far as the world becomes more polluted by garbage and other useless crap. Look at metal, you can have it on your roof and when the roof needs to be replaced, it can be removed and recycled. And, there is no garbage going into the land fills and instead of paying the dumping fee you can have some one pay you for you scrap metal! Tile roofs are heavy so if you where to put this on a house that was not built to hold them you roof you could end up with a flat house! The popularity of composition roofing will surely fade, but it is probable that it will not be to the extent that the product will become extinct worldwide [at least within a century or two].j3h. My opinion: Roofs of the future will be one of three things: First is metal. I don't think it will be as popular as the person who wrote Answer 2 does, mainly because of expense. I used to sell roofing, and when I was in the business painted metal was over $100 per square. Compare that to under $50 for shingles, and you can see it's kind of a hard sell. It performs well if it is installed well. Two things I really like about metal roofing are that you can paint it, and that snow slides off it if the roof pitch is steep enough. Next will be "active" shingle roofs. Dow is developing a solar shingle--a shingle with a photovoltaic panel built into it. I also think someone will figure out a way to capture the solar heat collected by a shingle roof to use in water or space heating. If either comes to fruition, shingle will be even more popular than it is now. And finally, sprayed polyurethane foam roofs will become extremely popular because they insulate well and they're quick to apply.
Metal roofing materials arenâ€™t a standard construction choice, but there are quite a few benefits to using a metal material for roofing as opposed to any of the more common asphalt based materials on the market. Understanding the benefits and disadvantages of metal roofing material is important when deciding how to roof a home, storage center, or a business. Hereâ€™s a bit of information to help you make the decision.First of all, metal roofing materials can withstand prolonged exposure to the elements better than asphalt based materials. They require less maintenance, and contrary to popular belief, metal roofing materials donâ€™t rust if theyâ€™re properly installed and treated. There are quite a few painted metal roofing products on the market, and itâ€™s possible to get a very aesthetically pleasing roof out of all metal components. However, metal roofs have a distinct look to them, and they wonâ€™t be mistaken for an asphalt roof. Be sure to look at a few different metal roofs to get a sense of their looks, especially if youâ€™re considering a metal roof for a house or apartment building.Metal roofing materials require different installation tools than more popular roofing materials, so donâ€™t assume that youâ€™ll know how to install a metal roof just because youâ€™ve worked on asphalt based roofs in the past. Many metal roofing material companies provide instructions for do-it-yourself roofs. Read these instructions before you make a purchase. This will help you to understand what youâ€™re getting into. However, metal roofing materials arenâ€™t inherently more difficult to install than other roofing materials. Theyâ€™re simply different.If youâ€™re using a contractor, make sure that the contractor has worked with metal roofing before. Ask about his credentials. Donâ€™t use a contractor who isnâ€™t experienced.Before you buy and use metal roofing materials, researhc the different options on the market and make sure that youâ€™re getting the best deal possible. Metal roofing materials will cost a bit more than alternatives, but most come with extensive warranties or lifetime guarantees. A metal roof isnâ€™t ideal for every project, but in many instances, a roof made out of steel or another metal can be a great asset.
While most people use the traditional black shingles on their roof, some people don't. They use metal roofing materials instead. There are many great benefits to choosing roofing materials made of metal instead of choosing shingles. Those who choose to purchase a metal roof will find out that metal roofs can seal out almost all water, protect your house against heavily strong winds, and they are very resistant to mildew and rot. Most metal roofing materials reach their warranty date and look like new. If you're building a home and you're interested in metal roofing, make sure that you talk to your builders about the benefits of metal roofing materials.
Many homeowners with traditional shingle roofs are discovering the hidden costs of shingles. Shingle roofs can leak, raise insurance premiums, and cost thousands of dollars to repair. Installing a new shingle roof can be time-consuming and expensive, sometimes taking weeks. A metal or tin roof offers a durable and affordable alternative. Metal roofs come in large sheets for easy and fast installation, do not leak or need maintenance, and are lightweight. Housing structures have to be built specifically for traditional shingle roofs due to the high weight. Metal roofs do not require additional support, and can be installed by as few as 2 people.
Did you know that you can save on your metal roofing expenses by purchasing from a wholesaler? Wholesalers typically sell metal roofing to industrial customers such as farms or factories, but even as a residential customer you can get a steep discount when buying from a wholesaler. Buying from a wholesaler doesn't mean you have to sacrifice color or style either, as most wholesalers offer a wide variety of metal roofing options to choose from.
