Custom Metal Roof Solutions To Talk With Your Roofing Contractor About

Posted on: 23 June 2021

If you are ready to install a new roof on your home, modern metal materials give you options for design with a durable solution. You might need help choosing the right options that are available with metal roofing. The following custom metal roofing solutions are some of the options you can talk to your roofer about:

Custom Metal Shingle Roof

If you are replacing asphalt shingle roofing, there are metal options that you may want to consider for your project. These can be stamped metal shingles that give you the look of a shingled roof with the benefits of metal roofing. Stamped metal shingles will also give you options for adding a custom design to your roof. These can be decorative metal shingles or designs that are meant to look like other materials, such as wood shakes.

Standing Seam Roofs with Custom Finishes

Today, standing seam systems have become a standard for residential and commercial metal roofing. These are custom metal roofs that have raised seams and features that prevent problems in vulnerable areas. In addition to the custom, durable seams—there are also options for the finishes. These finishes can be premium metal like copper or powder-coated finishes. The copper is good for smaller roof sections and will develop a natural patina as it ages. Powder-coated standing seam roofing will give you more options for colors that match the exterior design.

Stamped Metal Roofing Tiles

Another option to discuss with your roofing contractor is stamped metal shingles. Metal tile materials are a great alternative to real clay or concrete tiles where roof loads are an issue. The stamped metal tiles are like the shingles but may have features like a textured finish that resembles the concrete or clay tile roofing materials. These options are lightweight and can easily be used to replace asphalt shingles without the need to make changes to the roof structure.

Custom Metal Roofing Panels for Roof Overs

Metal materials are often used for roof-over projects because of their versatility and affordability. Roof-overs are the installation of a roof over existing materials or structures. There are advantages to a roof-over with metal, such as improved efficiency. The existing roofing materials beneath a metal roof-over also provide an extra layer of protection against leaks and weather.

These are some of the custom metal roofing options that you may want to talk to your contractor about before replacing your roof. Contact a roofing contractor to discuss some of these options for your home.
