A quality-built metal roof will save money and last for decades
It’s no secret that the metal roofing industry is booming, and it is expected to continue its booming growth through the foreseeable future. Metal roofs have been the #1 choice for non-residential construction since they first arrived on the scene, and this is no surprise. They last much longer than other roofing materials without needing to be replaced. In fact, it is common that before a metal roof requires work, the building’s trims, gutters, and downspouts will need to be replaced. When it comes to metal roofing, we’ve inspected roofs built over 50 years ago, and they’re still performing like new!
The success of metal roofing, however, goes hand-in-hand with their quality. It is critically important not only to have an expert installation but to employ a company that you know uses the best materials available. Metal roofs made of inferior materials can cause lots of problems, from leaking and rusting to breakage and other damage that requires speedy repair.
Metal roofs are commonly made of:
While each of these materials has unique benefits, they all offer long-lasting durability. In addition, they help to cool the roof and produce energy-saving qualities, protect against fires, and, when installed correctly, don’t corrode, crack or become damaged.
At Galbraith, we not only focus on using the best materials to provide the best possible outcomes, but we also believe that a superior roof needs to be part of an entire system. Your roofing system should include all fasteners, flashings and building components and your installer should ensure that they’ve been designed to work together effectively. While anyone can put on metal roofing, it takes experience and dedication to quality to understand the workings of a properly engineered system and to install it with care. This is difficult to find, and it’s something we pride ourselves on possessing.
