Metal roofing is simply amazing when you consider how long it has been around. Records indicate that the “Dome of the Rock,” which sits on the Temple Mount in Israel, has a roof protected with a gold metal layer over a type of asphalt roofing. This amazing building was completed in 691. Around 27 BC, the Romans used copper roofing for the Pantheon. There are several other historical buildings still going strong with ancient metal roofing. The durability of this material is making a strong presence in residential homes. In some instances, the roof could outlast the house!
A new metal roofing system in Spokane will cost between $5,000 and $34,700 based on the material used, the size of the home, and other installation factors. It is best to speak with a trusted roofing company, like Rocky Mountain Exteriors, to narrow down the cost of your home.
What types of metal roofing do we offer?
Aluminum is both lightweight and durable, making this an excellent choice for metal roofing. The labor costs are relatively low which makes them an affordable option when compared to other roofing materials. This material is well suited for the Spokane area due to the heavy snowfall or high winds common to this area.
If you are looking for superior thermal and sound insulation, copper is the best choice for you. This material stands up well against harsh weather conditions, including those at high altitudes and extreme temperatures. An additional benefit to copper is the aging process. The color of the copper will slightly change through the years as it oxidizes. It may go through a series of colors from copper to dark brown, turquoise, or green.
Steel roofing is slightly more affordable than aluminum roofing however the maintenance may be a little more involved. If not taken care of properly, this material can begin to rust. Steel is energy-efficient, lightweight, durable, and fire-resistant.
Corrugated Metal Roofing
This type of material is composed of metal sheets with wavy creases in each panel. It is similar to the bumpy creases of a cardboard box. This can withstand extreme weather conditions like hurricane-force winds as well as heavy snowfall. This is ideal for the Spokane area as the creases in the panels allow for easy snow removal.
Standing-Seam Metal Roofing
Standing-seam roofs feature panels that run vertically up the roof in an overlapping pattern, creating a continuous seam running along the length of the roof. These seams are raised from the surface of the panel giving this an aesthetically pleasing appearance. The greatest benefit of this style is the lack of exposed fasteners. This means they aren’t exposed to UV rays, moisture, or wind which could cause the fasteners to rust and wear out over time.
Regardless of the type of metal roofing you choose, some attributes remain the same across the board. (Why Metal roofs are better than shingles?)
