Standing Seam Metal Roofing is sleek, clean, and extremely durable. But, nothing screams ultra sleek and modern like Standing Seam Metal in Matte Black.
This home is tucked away in a tropical oasis in Odessa, Florida. With gorgeous lake views and nestled under treetops, the homeowners had to go with strong roofing materials that would withstand hurricane winds, heavy Florida rains, and be deterrent to maintenance caused by the wilderness surrounding. Standing Seam Metal is custom measured, hand cut, hand bent, and hand crafted to your home. Standing Seam earned a 140-mph wind rating, according to the Metal Roofing Alliance, and some can withstand gusts up to 180 mph.
A metal roof can also help keep your home cooler with proper ventilation. In this home, we opted for an additional layer of Prodex Foil Insulation. But, metal roofs alone can be highly reflective and emissive. They bounce light away from your roof, plus do not retain heat for long, unlike Tile.
Though a metal roof is undoubtedly more expensive than shingle roofs, they outlive traditional roofing by a landslide. Metal roofs can last 40-70 years while traditional shingles have an estimated life expectancy of roughly 15 years. Standing seam roofs are constructed with interlocking metal panels. The seams create a seal that protects from the ravages of weather and other environmental elements.
These panels are painted with Kynar 500 which provides excellent chip and fade resistance contributing to long term beauty and aesthetics.
Some insurance agencies offer discounts for metal roofs, and due to their strength, durability, and wind resistance post-storm repairs are lessened. Your metal roof can help you avoid calling for emergency leaks after hurricanes at a time where contractors are in high demand or lack available materials and labor.
Overall, a metal roof is an investment with undeniable benefits that out-perform traditional roofing systems with hurricane protection, durability, and aesthetics that complement all styles of home.
