Duration Construction roofing contractors are experts in the removal of old roofing material and the installation of a new metal roof on your St. Louis home or business.
Why Choose Metal Roofing in St. Louis?
Metal roofing can be comprised of aluminum, steel, or copper, giving the home or business maximum protection. Not only are these materials able to withstand the force of high winds, they shed moisture from snow and rain effectively. Metal roofing is only a quarter of the weight of roofing tiles, and half of asphalt shingles.
Not only are they lightweight, but you get more options in color, style, and texture than with any other roofing material. Metals can be crafted to resemble wood shakes, asphalt shingles, and roofing tiles. Some styles are available as a rolled sheet that is quick and easy to install, while others are crafted to resemble roofing tiles and will take more care and precision to install.
The Pros of Metal Roofing Products
When properly installed by a professional team of roofing contractors like Duration Construction a metal roof can last as long as the house and many manufacturers will offer warranties of up to 50 years. You can also find metal roofing products made using recycled materials, making those an environmentally friendly roofing solution for the home or business.
In some cases you can avoid the expense of having old asphalt shingles removed before the installation of a new metal roof. Depending on the condition of your roof truss, support beams and decking, you might be able to have the metal roofing material installed on top of the asphalt shingles. Leaving the asphalt in place will also act as a noise buffer, reducing the pinging you typically find with a metal roof during a rain storm.
Frequently Asked Questions About Metal Roofing Products
Duration Construction roofing contractors are known for their experience and knowledge in St. Louis roofing solutions. When helping home and commercial business owners make a decision about metal roofing products, we have found that many individuals have the same concerns. The following serves to answer the most common questions you may have regarding metal roofing materials:
Is a metal roof going to interrupt cell phone service and WiFi signal?
A good number of St. Louis businesses you frequent daily have metal roofs and even walls with no effect on cell phone reception. It is highly unlikely to affect it inside of your home. WiFi is transmitted from a box inside of your home, and will not cause a reduction in signal from your new metal roof.
Will lightning be more attracted to my house because of a metal roof?
Your home or business will be no more susceptible to being struck by lightening then before the metal roof was installed. Lightning is attracted to the highest object in an area.
Will my metal roof be ruined during a hail storm?
Most metal roofing solutions are able to withstand damage from hail, and come with a hail specific warranty that covers any finish damage or leaking as a result of a hail storm. Metal does not lose impact resistance the way that other roofing products do as they age, making this a more resilient roofing solution overall.
Will rain sound exceptionally loud inside of my house because of a metal roof?
In most cases, there are textured folds in a metal roof that help in dulling the sound of rain when it hits your roof. The space in your attic and the ventilation also provide additional protection. If Duration Construction does note traits in your home’s construction that will make the pinging of rain more prevalent, we can offer solutions such as foam inserts to further block the sound.
Is a metal roof fire resistant?
No, a metal roof is not resistant to fire it is full-proof against it. These are 100% non-combustible roofing solutions that will help protect the structure they cover from an outside fire source.
