Commercial Metal Roof Replacement

A commercial roof replacement is an opportunity for building owners to not only get a new, more durable roof but also to improve the aesthetics of their building. Commercial metal roof replacements offer a wide range of benefits and can help elevate the looks of a commercial building all while being an environmentally friendly roofing solution.

The Benefits of a Commercial Metal Roof Replacement

Resistant to cracking, shrinking, and eroding (when properly installed), metal roofing is also naturally fire, hail, and wind resistant. For commercial buildings that experience extreme weather, these properties can make a metal roof a desirable option.

The durability and long life of a metal roof are especially essential benefits if the roof that is being replaced is a shingle roof. Shingles, while inexpensive upfront, need to be replaced much more regularly than metal and are prone to damage from things like hail and high winds.

Shingles are also not an environmentally friendly roofing material and, considering 11 million tons of shingles end up as waste, they carry a heavy environmental burden.

Metal roofing, on the other hand, is made from a high percentage of recycled material and is 100% recyclable at the end of its service life. An environmentally friendly roofing material, less metal roofing needs to be recycled because it lasts longer as well.

And metal roofs look better for longer than shingles. The use of a Kynar 500® paint system helps keep the color and vibrancy of a metal roof consistent throughout its service life.

So, with all of these benefits in mind, what are some commercial metal roof replacement options?
