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 common inquiries we get about metal roofing.

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

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 it come in?”

One of the great things about metal roofing in Dublin, OH 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, whether it’s composed of siding, brick or stone, will be no problem at all.

“Do metal roofing rust?”

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

“How much more is metal roofing than shingles?”

On average, metal roofing runs about double the cost of asphalt shingles, depending on which type of metal 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, so it will have to be replaced at least once – and possibly twice – before a metal roof wears out. Metal roofing can last more than 50 years and has the additional benefit of being energy-efficient, which cuts down on yearly energy costs.
