Metal Roofing Features and Benefits – Part 3: Metal Roofing Styles

By Stacy Mellete

Residential metal roofs are not just durable, long-lasting and energy-efficient;they are beautiful, too! In the past, they were installed primarily on agricultural and industrial structures, but today the material is finding favor with residential and commercial property owners because of a wider array of style choices available.

Manufactured in various profiles and pre-painted in a range of colors, metal roofs are now able to beautifully match different architectural styles. They can even be made to mimic the appearance of other roofing materials such as tile, giving you the opportunity to pick out a metal roof that will suit your preferences best.

Common Metal Roofing Styles

There’s a multitude of looks that can be achieved with metal roofing, thanks to the different styles and profiles that it now comes in, including the following:

  • Shakes, Shingles and Tiles – As more and more property owners recognize the benefits of metal roofing, they are clamoring to install it on their homes and buildings. However, some are not ready to let go of the traditional look that other roofing materials offer. Thankfully, roofing manufacturers listened, developing metal roofing products that look like traditional shakes, shingles and tiles.
  • Standing Seam – Probably the most widely-used and installed type of metal roof, standing seam roofing is characterized by raised seams connected by fasteners between panels. This is where the metal roofing style gets its name, as opposed to flush-mounted systems.

Metal roofing has a lot to offer but you can only make the most of its benefits if you work with a reputable roofing contractor in Tampa in your area. It’s not every day that you get a new roof so it’s important to ensure that you get the most out of your investment.

Demand  excellent work from a professional roofer and you’ll do just that.
