COMMERCIAL metal roof


What is Metal Roofing?

Metal roofing generally consists of roofing tiles or sheets made from galvanized steel coated with zinc or polymer coatings, though some commercial metal roofing materials include aluminum, copper, and tin. There are also many coatings available for metal roofing materials that add additional protection against UV rays, rust, and weather as well as providing endless color and finish options. Metal roofing is recommended for installation on sloped roofs.

How to install a Metal Roofing System

Many options for metal tiles or sheets are available, but the most common is called a “standing seam” metal roof, where the metal sheets or tiles are connected at vertical seams, and the metal sheets are attached to the roof itself with concealed fasteners. Metal roofs can be installed directly over an existing roof, but this is not recommended if there are serious leaks or damage to the roof structure. Many roofs also have additional insulating or weatherproofing layers installed underneath.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Metal Roofing

Did you know metal roofs can last up to 60 years? That’s right; these roofing systems have more than double the life expectancy of a shingle or tile roof. In Florida, metal is always a popular choice because of two reasons. 1st, metal will keep your house cooler, resulting in a 20% reduction in energy costs; and 2nd, metal roofs can withstand wind speeds up to 165 mph with a standard installation and up to 215mph with enhanced systems; hello, hurricane season. Metal roofs are relatively low-maintenance, and you rarely must worry about mildew or mold, as you do with other roofing systems. Plus, they are one of the most fire-resistant options available.

Metal roofing can withstand even extreme weather like hail or heavy snows, and when properly installed, metal roof systems are perfectly watertight. A metal roofing system can also last for decades if properly maintained, which includes regular cleanings, especially if there are metal gutters attached. Some drawbacks include the fact that metal roofing can only be installed on buildings with some kind of roof slope to it, and some kinds of metal roofing systems can make noise when rain hits them.

“Simply, they did what said they going to do, when they were going to do it, everyone was professional and they said “thank you”. We established a price and time schedule and each was adhered to. I would highly recommend this company and our sales rep. Kyla Kept us fully informed and updated. I never thought I would say this but, “I love my roof”.”

“We had a great experience, they showed up when they were supposed to with the proper materials handled all the permit process and everything went exactly as they specified. quite a nice change in today’s environment. we enjoyed working with them so much that we asked them to go all the way to Titusville to look at another job for us. The best I can say is they are neat, clean, orderly and professional.”

Kevin Stone

“After both Hurricane Matthew and Hurricane Irma I had roof damage, one with a leak. I called All Area Roofing and they were out the same day – gave me a very reasonable quote – and had the repairs done within 48 hours of our agreeing on a price. My property was left spotless I could hardly tell they were even there other than I could see the new shingles. I was very pleased with my experience.”

Donna Ernest

“As a General Contractor we work with many subcontractors for different scope of work. It was our first time using All Area Roofing for the roofing scope on one of our renovation projects. They provided a high level of professionalism both from the Office and in the Field. Highly recommended!”
