Metal Roof in Texas

What is metal roofing?

Metal roof is a broad term to describe materials that also have a pricing range. Affordable roofing options start with corrugated steel and end up with copper panels as the most expensive. Now, its longevity is superior to asphalt shingles, but let’s get deeper into this option for your business.

Smarthomes Roofing & Remodeling offers commercial roofing services using copper, zinc, aluminum, tin, or steel metal roof in Houston and its surroundings. Here you can find the metal roof profiles and the choices you’ve got for roof repairs or replacement.

Types of metal roofing

The top factor in choosing metal roofing is the fastener system. Either exposed or concealed, it implies a dramatic price variation. Therefore, we classify the metal roof in two profiles:

  • Exposed fastener. You see the screws on the surface, so the fastening system is visible. It has lower costs and ease of installation.
  • Concealed fasterner. Clips hold the panel without drilling it, making it more resistant and avoiding water sneaking in. It looks better but has a higher cost, and you need a certified roofing contractor for its correct installation.

Also, we could classify the metal roofing by its presentation or form:

  • Corrugated metals.
  • Slate roofs.
  • Tiles roofs.

And the other criteria to cluster the metal roofing types is by using generic names:

  • Zinc metal roof.
  • Tin roofing.
  • Metal slate roof.
  • Copper roof.
  • Steel roof.
  • Standing seam metal roof.
  • Corrugated metal roof.
  • Aluminum roof.

What is the cost of a metal roof?

  • Steel roofing: 15-30 years.
  • Tin roofing: 15-40 years.
