Metal Roofing

The Top Metal Roofing Experts Serving Northern Colorado

Metal roofs have many distinct advantages over other roofing materials. They are durable, lightweight, easy to install and are fireproof. With a wide variety of colors and styles to choose from, Advanced Roofing Technologies can achieve virtually any look you want for your home.

Types of Metal Roofing

There are many types of metal roof materials used today. These can include steel, granite, and copper. That said, there are three main types of metal roofs that stand apart from each other:

  • Standing seam panel: These use flat sheets of metal like copper & aluminum adjoined with raised seams. The joints are locked together, and the edges are folded back over, which creates a watertight seal. The metal comes in rolled form and cut to the measurements of the roof. Standing seam is one of the oldest roofing systems in use today, and its installation requires the skills of extremely professional roofing companies.
  • Corrugated Metal Roof: This consists of flat panels of corrugated metal. Although this is not a system that traditionally appears in residential areas, technology has led to the production of panels that have greater curb appeal and are suited to urban living. Historically, the panels are made of galvanized steel, but other metals are coming into favor.
  • Metal shingles: These are shingles designed to replicate the look of shingles made from other materials such as wood, cedar, slate or ceramic shingles. They also can paint the shingles to suit your design and color preferences.

Advantages to Metal Roofs

While metal roofing is right for some purposes and people, it’s not always right for all. Knowing some of the best reasons to choose metal for your residential or commercial roof can help you determine if it’s something you should choose.

Long-lasting

Metal roofing lasts for decades. It’s not uncommon to see a metal roof last for sixty years or longer if it’s maintained properly. For your life in the home, you may never have to replace the roof if you choose metal materials.

Durable

Metal roofing holds up well against all types of dangerous weather anomalies. Even debris and animals don’t seem to faze it. The impact of extreme weather in the Northern Colorado area makes metal roofing a durable choice.

Easy to Maintain

Maintenance on a metal roof is so easy that you can nearly install it and forget about it. Sure, regular maintenance will always be a factor, but the upkeep on a metal roof is so limited, that compared to other solutions like shingles, concrete, or tile, you’ll hardly need to complain about it.

Eco-Friendly

Metal roofing is recyclable, making it environmentally friendly. If parts of your roof need to be replaced, metal roofing specialists will tear off the old pieces and use the scraps for other projects. In fact, your brand-new metal roof may already be made from recycled materials.

Most metals are found naturally in the earth, so while it’s recyclable, it’s also more economical to source more materials from our planet without damaging the resources. It doesn’t involve unhealthy practices like cutting down trees.

Great Value

While your metal roof will cost more up front to install, it will cost less over its lifetime. You’re making a 60+ year investment instead of purchasing something that will only last 20 years. The metal roof cost is well worth it compared to paying for asphalt shingles three times in the same period.

Metal roof warranties also tend to be exceptional. Check with a local metal roof contractor for the options near you, but you’re likely to find that you can cover your metal roof for all kinds of things like leaks, damage, and more.

The Durability of Metal Roofs

As we stated earlier, a metal roof is one of the must durable materials you can install on your home.  Some metal roofs can withstand hurricane force winds well over 100 miles per hour. Metal does not corrode or break down over time due to the beating it takes as well. Some metal materials are also impact resistant — meaning they won’t get damaged from the likes of hail storms or other falling objects.

Metal roofs also do not need high cost maintenance through out the year like other roofing materials. While metal roof maintenance is minimal, it’s important to conduct regular inspections to ensure there’s no damage or to see if you need to repair or replace it. Twice a year, you should inspect your metal roof by:

  • Cleaning off dirt and stains that the rain didn’t wash away
  • Cleaning drains and gutters
  • Removing any branches or other objects that may be caught in the roof
  • Checking for scratches, chipping, or fading

    We had our roof replaced by Advanced Roofing a few years back. They did a great job, and reasonably priced hail resistant upgrade asphalt shingles.
    I needed color matching shingles to add exhaust fans for more roof space cooling. Logan
    … More dropped off a bundle of upgraded hail resistant shingles and did not charge. Who does that these days? Good people!

    After a brutal hailstorm, we were flooded with dozens of local and fly-by-night roofers. We knew nothing about the situation and were quickly overwhelmed by all of the world-promising offers. A friend suggested we try Advanced Roofing Technologies. … More I'm not being hyperbolic by stating that it was one of the best decisions we've ever made. It started with our project manager, Logan. Not only was he the pinnacle of professionalism, but he went above and beyond to make sure we understood every step of the process. We simply would not work with anyone other than him going forward. The actual roof and gutter repair themselves went seamless. The crews were always positive and prompt with a keen eye to the smallest details. I wouldn't recommend anyone but this company for any sort of roof related work. Thank you Logan, and A.R.T!

    ART was easy to work with, very professional, and they were extremely quick to get the work done. Our roof and gutters needed replaced due to a a hail storm; ART gave us a quote within two days of emailing them and we were scheduled for … More a new roof less than a week after we had signed a contract with them. From quote to work completed was about three weeks (most of the wait time was due to insurance).
    We worked primarily with Logan; he was amazing, very responsive, and I have no doubt that he had our best interest in mind.
