Metal Roofing Materials: A Top Rated Roofing Material

Metal roofing is durable, sustainable, and extremely customizable, which makes it well worth the extra cost. You can use it to make a bold statement or integrate it into your current aesthetic and enjoy it for its durability. Unlike asphalt shingles, it won’t crack, come loose, or peel up. Each panel is 100 percent recyclable, which makes metal roofing as practical as it is beautiful. If you’re concerned about heat, don’t be! Our metal uses the Texas cooling system to reduce heat.

More Benefits Of Metal Roofing

If you aren’t convinced about the advantages of metal roofing, we have more benefits for you to consider:

  • It provides more benefits than traditional roofing materials like asphalt and wood shingles.
  • Though the initial cost may be more, the longevity, versatility, and energy efficiency of metal roofs make this roofing type a worthwhile long-term investment.
  • Experience insurance savings — sometimes up to 30%!
  • It offers unbeatable durability that can withstand hail storms better than traditional asphalt roofs. Metal also doesn’t crack or break.
  • It provides some fire-resistance because the metal can resist ignition longer than other materials.
Metal Roofing Features

Maumee River Construction gets its metal roofing materials from RamCo Supply. Their Ram-Panel roofing is superior to many other brands. Here are some of the reasons why we choose to partner with this metal roofing supplier:

Hard, High Tensile Strength Steel

The integrity of this high-quality steel means that it can withstand extreme weather conditions such as ice, wind, and heavy snow:

  • ASTM A792 grade 80 specifications
  • Minimum tensile strength of 80,000 psi

Galvalume Coating

A galvalume coating is a zinc-aluminum coating that not only increases the longevity of this product but also decreases needed maintenance as well. This coating is applied to both bare and painted metal roofing offering these specific benefits:

  • Maximum corrosion protection
  • Low maintenance
  • Durability
  • Edge protection
  • Limited Lifetime Warranty

Acrylic Coating

Non-painted or bare metal roofing will have an additional coating that is applied over the galvalume coating. This coating can:

  • Extend the life of the metal roof
  • Easy-to-install
  • Non-uniform darkening when stored

Siphon Groove

The siphon groove that is applied to this roofing material, allows for free water runoff flow and can enhance protection from wind, rain, and snow — which can eliminate leaks and subsequent water damage.

Life-Cycle Cost

Metal roofing, when compared to other roofing materials, is one of the most cost-effective materials to install especially considering the limited warranty on color-coated panels; it can withstand damage and natural deterioration due to wind

Environment

This roofing material is also great for the environment as it is completely recyclable and even made from recycled steel. As more people switch to metal roofing, landfills will be less bombarded by non-recyclable materials such as asphalt and tar-based products from traditional roofing materials.
