Especially in the Toronto, ON area, where weather conditions, especially in the winter season can be harsh, metal roofing is the choice by my commercial property owners. While some residential property owners do install metal roofing the bulk of metal roofs is installed by those with commercial properties because of its durability. King Koating Roofing in Toronto, ON, serves the entire GTA and even some regions beyond with the installation of premium metal roofing. Although mostly made of steel, these roofs are quite light-weight, and this surprises many property owners. Expectations are that these would be heavy, but the panels used are lighter than asphalt tile roofing. Metal roofing is more expensive, but the average lifespan is a whopping 40 to 70 years and can last the life of the property. This alone makes these roofs appealing to commercial property owners and metal roofing contractors are in demand. Metal roofing can dent, however, so examination of the roofing should be done by a contractor regularly to ensure no damage has occurred from weather. As always, there are pros and cons with any type of roofing but the durability alone is well worth the extra cost to some property owners. There are special methods of installation however, and only a company like King Koating Roofing with its 20 years of experienced and trained roofing mechanics should be chosen.
Energy savings and recyclability are some other valid reasons to choose metal roofing.
Metal roofs do add to the insulation of a property and metal is recyclable, therefore they are considered environmentally friendly. Rain waters slides right off the roof and can be captured for usages, and many metal roofs have solar panels installed, thereby cutting down on heating and cooling costs. The solar panels if installed, according to the Metal Roofing Alliance, can reflect radiant heat back into the atmosphere keeping a property up to 25% cooler than an average roof. The metal roofing of today is a far cry from the past when they had a tin can look to them and were only metal colored. Now there is a vast array or dozens of colors. Truthfully though, they can conduct more noise than other roofs as metal is simply not as noise absorbent as other types of roofing. Extra layers of insulation can be installed to prevent too much excess noise.
Metal roofing is not limited in Canada to commercial property owners.
Many residential owners are turning to this type of roofing for its durability and eco-friendly qualities. Metal roofing now is also so diverse in style, from shingle types to panels to the original sheet style. Finishes can be applied now to enhance the appearance and while steel is the most popular metal roof requested, aluminum roofing is also gaining in popularity. Roofing that resists rot, mildew, bugs and other elements, will always have great appeal, and since metal roofing does all the above, contractors such as King Koating Roofing are always busy with clients seeking this type of roofing.
