Are you in the market for a new roof? If you're considering purchasing a new roof, Flow Roofing can help you find the most viable options for your project. And one of the most viable options out there is metal roofing.
What is Metal Roofing?
Metal roofing is formed of tiles or metal pieces that are made of materials that are durable and impermeable. They frequently contain steel alloys, zinc alloys, and copper alloys.
Metal roofs often have a long lifespan. How long is a metal roof considered to be lengthy? They may survive several decades, or even up to a century, depending on the environmental conditions.
Here are just a few reasons metal roofs could be right for you. They are:
• Energy Efficient
For both commercial and residential purposes, metal is a significant shingle roof substitute. Metal roofs are more expensive than fiberglass shingle roofs, but they will undoubtedly survive a lot longer (possibly, decades). Your metal roof may last up to three or four times longer than conventional fiberglass shingle roofs in the right conditions.
Standing Seam Metal Roofing
Metal roofing is reasonably priced. It's that easy. You will save money by avoiding ongoing roof repairs because the roofing requires little upkeep. You have many years of dependable roofing that you can rely on to keep you safe from the sweltering summer heat and the summer rains since it is long-lasting.
These roofs are not only durable, but they also require little upkeep. At best, they require very little maintenance, and at worst, it's not expensive.
Since metal roofs reflect the sun, they can significantly reduce your energy costs and the money you would otherwise spend cooling your home.
Metal roofs are incredibly durable and can outlast the property they are protecting from the elements. It may be used on older homes without worrying about harming the buildings because of how lightweight it is. Traditional roofing may weigh too much and significantly damage the home's substructure. Not metal roofs, please.
Custom Metal Roofs
There is only one word that adequately sums up our metal roofs: CUSTOM. Using our cutting-edge Standing Seam Roll Forming, each of our roofs is individually produced to order.
The roof is constructed using precisely cut and sized pieces. We have the most modern machinery and technology, allowing us to extrude your roof right at the construction site so that it can be roofed there and then.
For your home, we use a 26-22-gauge snap lock hidden screw metal-panel roof system that we specifically size on the job. The customer can choose from a wide range of colors for these metal panels to match their color scheme.
Like with all of our replacement roofs, we document the old roof's removal with photos or videos. Nowadays, more strict nailing regulations and patterns are used to re-nail all existing decking.
At Flow Roofing, we use Taylor Metal and ASC to build the best roof possible for you.
Several manufacturers of roofing and gutters offer everything under one roof, including ASC and Taylor. To accommodate any taste, they provide a wide variety of finishes and hues. This high-performance, full-strength fluorocarbon of hues offers superior, high-grade finishes, regardless of whether your metal roof design asks for a natural look, an aged look, or a bright look. This material is stain and chemical resistant, and it won't fade.
Over the lifespan of the roofing material, ASC and Taylor coatings won't chip or peel because they are made to stick to substrates.
Metal Roofs are more likely to get struck by lightning.

Answer: Metal roofs are galvanized and have alloy coatings in the finish that will protect the roof from rust and corrosion for the lifetime of the roof.
Metal roofs cost more than a composition roof.
Answer: In the short term, the cost of a metal roof is higher than composition roofing.
