Advantages of Metal Roofing
Metal roofing is one of the fastest-growing segments of both residential and commercial construction. Every day, business owners are discovering the many benefits of a metal roof for their buildings.
Metal roofs are designed with interlocking or overlapping panels, which provides tremendous strength and wind resistance. Modern forming methods allow for metal roofs to be installed over any structure, no matter how simple or intricate the roofline is.
A metal roof also provides excellent energy efficiency. Coated metal roofs reflect the sun’s light and heat, leading to reduced energy costs and cooler buildings. Additionally, metal roofs are fire-resistant.
Another chief environmental impact is recyclability. Metal roofs are not only assembled from recycled materials but can be reused indefinitely. In an age when 11 million tons of asphalt shingles are discarded, metal roofs offer a recyclable, long-lasting alternative.
In addition to being an attractive roofing finish, metal roofs are available in a variety of colors, and are lightweight to preserve structural integrity.
Once installed, they require very little maintenance, and will last for decades longer than conventional materials.
Metal Roofing Materials
The most common materials are galvanized steel or aluminum. A steel roof or aluminum roof will offer the best durability and attractiveness for the cost.
Commercial metal roofs can also be constructed from copper, zinc, and stainless steel. While these materials are exceptional, they are significantly more costly options.
We will work with our Orlando clients to decide on the best material for your budget and requirements.
Metal Roofing Coating
Metal roofs are finished with coats and sealants, which serve a variety of purposes. They provide resistance to dirt, mildew, and algae as well as waterproofing.
The two most common metal roof sealants are polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) and polyester. Generally, installed metal roofs are covered with two coats of sealant—a primer and a top coat—for the ultimate durability.
Metal roofs also include a gloss or matte finish, as well as a color selection. Grasco Inc will work with you to determine the best color for your commercial roof, bearing in mind that certain colors are more energy-efficient than others.
Metal Roof Installation
At the first inspection, the experts at Grasco Inc will take measurements or the roof area, making allowances for obstacles like chimneys or skylights. Materials will then be ordered.
We will remove the old roof, and begin with a layer of insulation, followed by the eave flashing.
Next, the panels of your metal roof will be added. These will either be overlapping or interlocking, depending on your specifications.
We will then install the flashing to your roof, add the sealants and color, and your business’s maintenance-free metal roof will be complete!
