It’s no secret that metal roofing is growing in popularity. A leader in Maine roofing services, Legacy Home Improvements specializes in installing standing seam and composition metal roofing. We manufacture our own metal roofing so we can pass the savings on to consumers. Both attractive and durable, standing seam refers to a type of roofing that features metal sheets connected by raised fasteners. The result is a “standing seam” appearance.
Here are a few of the many advantages associated with standing seam metal roofing:
Moisture Protection. Because they feature large metal sheets, standing seam roofs contain fewer seams through which moisture can penetrate. Because the vertical seams are protected, metal roofing is far more weather resistant than other materials.
Metal roofing is more durable than asphalt and composition. In fact, experts estimate that metal roofing lasts upwards of 50 years compared to composition which lasts just 20.
Energy Efficiency. Metal roofing is also a great choice for families looking to save on energy costs. Considered “cool roofs” by the EPA, standing seam roofs come in various colors, textures, and profiles to prevent heat gain.
The team at Legacy specializes in installing traditional composition roofing. Manufactured with a fiberglass core, composition shingles don’t last as long as metal. However, they are typically less expensive and come in a wide array of colors and styles.
Consider the Advantages of Standing Seam Roofing
When installed correctly, standing seam metal roofs can last well over 50 years and require little to no maintenance. Additionally, they are especially resistant to storm winds, and fire. For more information about Legacy’s expert roofing services, call today or request a free estimate online.
