Frequently Asked Questions About Metal Roofing – Part 2

Still have questions about metal roofing?

Not a problem! Muth & Company, your expert Columbus roofer, is here with the answers to a few more of the frequently asked questions about metal roofing.

“Does the paint on metal roofing flake or chip?”

First of all, metal roofing systems will last at least 50 years. And their paint finishes will keep going strong for the same length of time. The brands installed by Muth & Company carry comprehensive warranties against flaking, chipping and fading, so there is no need to worry about having an ugly roof a few years down the road.

“How many colors does metal roofing come in?”

One of the great things about metal roofing is the wide variety of colors in which it is available. With dozens of shades to choose from, finding one that will complement the exterior of your home will be no problem at all.

“Do metal roofs rust?”

If you’ve ever seen a rusty old shed or other structure covered with sheet metal, it would be logical to assume that this will rust as well. But today’s systems are manufactured differently. A metallic coating made of zinc or a zinc/aluminum compound covers modern metal. The manufacturing process bonds this compound to the steel. This is what prevents rust from forming on the panel.

“Is a metal roof more expensive?”

On average, metal runs about double the cost of asphalt shingles, depending on which type you use. If you think metal seems overpriced and overrated, you must take into account the longevity of this type of roof. An asphalt shingle roof lasts from 20-30 years. Ultimately, a metal can last more than 50 years. You’ll replace an asphalt shingle roof at least once, possibly twice, before a metal roof wears out.  And it has the additional benefit of being energy-efficient, which cuts down on yearly energy costs.
