Our metal roof installation contractors offer expertise in metal roofing and will guide you through the process of material selection and design in order to maximize the performance of your new roof and get you the aesthetic that suits your home – for a beautiful metal roof installation that offers maximum longevity.

Install Metal Roofing for Durability and Value

A metal replacement roof often lasts up to 50 years or more when properly installed by experienced metal roofers. Compared to an asphalt roof that lasts 15-30 years, this is a great investment not only for the life of the roof but for the unique aesthetics it provides.

A properly constructed metal roof, professionally installed by an expert roofing company, can handle just about anything Mother Nature can throw at it. They are resistant to fire, wind, and impact, making them an ideal choice for the Hampton Roads area where extreme weather conditions, such as hurricanes and high winds, occur. This makes for immense value when choosing metal roofing for your new roof installation or replacement roof on your home.

Year-Round Energy Efficiency

Metal roofs are highly reflective and can help to reduce energy costs by reflecting the sun's heat away from the building. They also have insulating properties that can help to keep the building cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

“Cool metal roofing,” as known in the metal roofing industry, can significantly reduce a building's long-term energy use. Energy costs can be reduced by up to 40% or more with the application of heat-deflecting metal coatings, according to a study conducted by Oak Ridge National Laboratory

Metal roofs retain 95% of their reflectivity capacity over their lifetime, compared to other roofing materials which lose 20%-40% of their reflectivity over time.

Low Maintenance Metal Roofing

Metal roofs require very little maintenance and can be easily cleaned with a hose or pressure washer. They do not rot, warp, or crack like traditional roofing materials, and they are resistant to mold and mildew.

It's a good idea to inspect your metal roof at least once a year to check for any damage or signs of wear and tear. Look for any dents, scratches, or areas of corrosion. As a customer of The Roofing Company, Inc., we offer our free annual Customer Appreciation Inspection where our expert local metal roof installers inspect the work we completed and check the surrounding areas. 

Tips to keep your metal roof in tip-top condition:

  • Clean your roof: Avoid using abrasive cleaners or tools that could scratch the surface of the roof. It's best to clean your roof on a cloudy day to avoid water spots.
  • Trim nearby trees: Overhanging tree branches can scratch and damage your metal roof. Trim any trees that are too close to your roof to prevent this from happening.
  • Remove debris: Debris such as leaves, twigs, and other debris can accumulate on your roof and cause water to pool. Remove any debris from your roof to prevent water damage.
  • Check your gutters: Make sure that your gutters are clear of debris and are functioning properly. Clogged gutters can cause water to back up and damage your roof.
  • Repair any damage promptly: If you notice any damage to your metal roof, it's important to have it repaired promptly to prevent further damage.

Sustainability of Materials

Metal roofing is environmentally friendly and can be recycled at the end of its useful life. They are virtually 100% recyclable and are made with a minimum of 25% recycled material, depending on the specific metal, which helps to reduce the amount of waste in landfills.

Metal roofing has not only come a long way in durability and efficiency, but also in style, with a range in materials to suit most any design preference. We offer a vast selection of roofing materials, many of which are available in a variety of colors and styles, making your new metal roof a versatile choice for any architectural design. It can also be painted to match the building's exterior, providing a seamless look.

Investment for Metal Replacement Roofing

While the initial cost of a quality metal roof installation is higher than roofing materials such as asphalt, it’s an investment that pays returns over a lifetime. It is also one of the best investments you can make to boost your home’s value.

The cost of metal roof replacement can vary depending on a few factors such as the type of metal being used, the complexity of the roof design, the location, and the contractor's labor costs. In general, metal roofing can be more expensive than traditional roofing materials like asphalt shingles, but it also offers more durability and longevity.
