Metal Roof Metal roofs offer heavy-duty, long-lasting protection against the elements. Metal is an attractive option because of their longevity, minimal maintenance, and energy efficiency. You can choose from tin, zinc, aluminum, copper, or galvanized steel. With a metal roof, you can quickly cover large sections of a building and protect it against the ravages of the weather. Metal roofs can last 40-70 years, depending on the type of material. In most cases, they can sustain wind gusts up to 140 miles per hour. They will not corrode or crack, and maybe impact-resistant (depending on which metal you choose) Bonus - 100% recyclable at the end of a roof’s life. The cost can be as much as two to three times more than other roofing materials. It seems to be the roof of choice in harsh weather areas, such as mountain ranges. They can be installed anywhere and of course, they come in many colors and styles. Here at Aspen Roofing and Exteriors, we have substantial experience, installing metal roofs for discerning clients, and we can help you with yours too.
