WHY PEOPLE CHOOSE ARMOUR METAL ROOFING!

Metal roofing is becoming the most popular choice in roofing today.
Not only for it's appealing appearance, energy efficiency or long life.
But most important is it's ability to withstand the most severe elements.
Especially Hurricanes
It's been proven that metal roofs when installed properly can withstand up to 220 MPH winds.

VALUE

Metal roofing is generally more expensive than shingles, but in the long run they are cheaper, especially with new insurance deductible guidelines. In the past, it didn't matter if your roof blew off, just a small deductible and get a new roof. Now people are paying for the past.

TYPES OF METAL ROOFING

The cheapest: 29ga Armour Rib (Multi Rib)
This panel was originally used for agriculture because of its wide coverage and many ribs for rigidity and ease of installment. People then started using it on homes. The panel is an exposed fastener system. The screws are on the outside of the panel in plain sight. You are relying on a rubber washer to keep your roof water tight. The biggest problem with this roof is most installers over tighten the screws and the washer wears out quickly. The other problem is it has a paint finish called siliconized polyester. Even though most manufactures warranty the paint for 40 years, it starts to fade very fast and uneven becoming an eye sore. Starting March 1st, we are going to start coating all of our steel with Kynar 500. It's the Cadillac of paint. It keeps its luster through its whole life. The cost for coating with Kynar is about 12% more but you don't have to worry about your roof looking cheap after a few years. Another popular type of exposed fastener system is called 5V Crimp also started out on barns and houses more than a hundred years ago. This roof is mostly used around the coast . This will also be coated with Kynar starting in March.

The best and my favorite type of metal roofing is standing seam. It is a concealed fastener system. The screws are installed either in nail strip or a clip that is snapped or seamed over with the next panel. There are many different types of this roof.
