The Top Metal Roofing Experts Serving Woodbridge Township

metal roofing experts in NJ

Metal roofs have distinct advantages over other roofing materials. They are durable, lightweight, easy to install, and fireproof. With a wide variety of colors and styles to choose from, Above & Beyond Exterior Remodelers roofing specialists can achieve virtually any look you want for your home or commercial building.

Many low slope commercial metal roofs are made from corrugated galvanized steel. Copper, aluminum, stainless steel, and tin can also be used. Though, the initial investment is much higher than other commercial roof solutions, its durability makes up for it in the long run.

Materials for Metal Roofs

Aluminum Roofing

Aluminum is an excellent material for metal roofs. It’s lightweight yet durable. This cuts down on labor costs, making it an affordable option. Aluminum roofing isn’t as stylish as other materials, but what it lacks for in luster, it makes up for in value.

Aluminum is malleable, however, and can be shaped to to fit your design. It can be made to look like tile, shingles, or even a custom design. Because of its reflective properties, aluminum can be brighter than other roofing materials. This makes it a great choice for the energy-conscious. Like other metal roofing materials, it’s also recyclable, durable, long lasting, and cost-effective.

Copper Roofing

One of the most appealing things about metal roofing is its sustainability. Copper is no different. It is soft and highly malleable, like any other metal roofing material. It comes in three types: continuous, shingles, and panels. Your choice determines how it designed and shaped for your roof.

Copper is known for its beauty and strength making it a wonderful material for roofing. It has a high thermal conductivity, so it will keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Who doesn’t love energy savings?

Steel Roofing

Steel roofing is manufactured in giant rolls. It is then coated with either zinc or a zinc-aluminum mixture to protect it from oxidation. It comes in a variety of thicknesses to suit your roof’s individual needs.

Steel is energy efficient, recyclable, lightweight, durable, and fire-resistant. It’s easy to install which contributes to its affordability. It is also highly-customizable, allowing you to make it look like many other roofing types.

Types of Metal Roofs

Corrugated Metal Roofing

Corrugated metal is galvanized steel that is rolled into a pattern. The two most popular styles of corrugated metal are U-panel and R-panel. Although patterns can vary, corrugated metal is stacked like tile. The corrugation runs perpendicular to the grooves in the steel. This process enhances the strength inherent with galvanized steel.

Corrugated metal is a cost-effective choice since it’s prefabricated. It is lightweight, corrosion-resistant, durable, and easily transported. Corrugated metal directs water off of your roof making it an excellent solution for your building.

Standing-Seam Metal Roofing

Standing seam metal roofing comes in a variety of seam types: snap-lock, mechanical lock, and batten panel. Each one interlocks differently and they provide different protection. Depending on your climate, you can choose a specific seam type to protect your building.

Because of the interlocking panels, the seams stand up higher than the roof itself. The standing seam is an aesthetic feature that makes standing seam metal roofs appealing and also protects the fasteners. Standing-seam metal roofs offer a wide range of colors, lengths, widths, thicknesses, and seam types. Of course, they are durable and cost-effective.

Metal Shingles

Metal shingles are designed to replicate the look of shingles made from other materials such as wood, cedar, slate or ceramic. They also can paint the shingles to suit your design and color preferences. And, if you only have one layer of asphalt shingles, metal shingles can be installed over your existing roof.

When you prefer the look of shingles but want a versatile, light-weight, and fire-resistant option, metal shingles are a good investment. Yes, they cost more up front. Their lifetime cost should be compared to the total cost of roof replacements over the lifetime of the home, instead of a one to one ratio.

Advantages of Metal Roofs

While metal roofing is right for some purposes, it’s not always right for all. Knowing the reasons to choose metal for your residential or commercial roof can help you determine if it’s for you.

Long Lasting

Metal roofing lasts for decades. It’s not uncommon to see a metal roof last for sixty years or longer if it’s maintained properly. You may never have to replace your home’s roof in your lifetime, if you choose metal.

Durable

Metal roofing holds up well against all types of dangerous weather anomalies. Even debris and animals don’t harm it. The impact of our climate makes metal roofing a durable choice.

Low Maintenance

Maintenance on a metal roof is so easy that you can nearly install it and forget about it. Sure, regular maintenance will always be a factor. The upkeep on a metal roof is so limited compared to other solutions like shingles, concrete, or tile, you’ll hardly notice it.

Eco-Friendly

Metal roofing is recyclable, making it environmentally friendly. If parts of your roof need to be replaced, metal roofing specialists will tear off the old pieces and use the scraps for other projects. In fact, your brand-new metal roof may already be made from recycled materials.

Most metal is found naturally in the earth. While it’s recyclable, it’s also more economical to source more materials from our planet. It doesn’t involve unhealthy practices like cutting down trees.

Great Value

While your metal roof will cost more up front to install, it will cost less over its lifetime. You’re making a 60+ year investment instead of purchasing something that will only last 12-20 years. The investment in a metal roof is comparable to paying for asphalt shingles three times in the same period.

Metal roof warranties also tend to be exceptional. You’re likely to find that you can cover your metal roof for all kinds of things like leaks, damage, and more.

Annual Maintenance for Metal Roofs

Metal roofs do not need high cost annual maintenance like other roofing materials. Metal doesn’t corrode or break down over time either. Some metal materials are even impact resistant; they aren’t damaged from hail storms or other falling objects.

While metal roof maintenance is minimal, it’s important to conduct regular inspections. This is to ensure there’s no damage or to see if you need to repair or replace it.

  • Twice a year, you should inspect your metal roof by:
  • Cleaning off dirt and stains that the rain didn’t wash away
  • Cleaning drains and gutters
  • Removing any branches or other objects that may be caught in the roof
  • Checking for scratches, chipping, or fading

FAQs

Close

How long do metal roofs last?

Metal is one of the roofing materials giving homeowners minimal hassle and bang for their buck in terms of longevity. While some materials may require a roof replacement every 20-30 years, metal roofs can enjoy a lifespan of 40-70 years. This means you may never have to replace your home’s roof in your lifetime again.

Are metal roofs noisy when it rains?

Many have this misconception of noise caused by metal roofing, thanks in large part due to older methods of installation. These days metal roofs are installed over solid roof deck, which, apart from providing a foundation, also functions to absorb sound. This greatly reduces noise caused by rain or hail and what you hear is likely at the same pitch as other roofing material types.

Do metal roofs keep the house cooler?

One of metal’s best characteristics is the that fact that it reflects heat in summer, which can greatly reduce the home’s temperature and mitigate the need for any energy-guzzling artificial cooling.
