About Metal Roofing

Metal Roofing Styles and Varieties

Beyond the choice of metal roofing materials, there is also the critical choice of style. While the practical advantages of metal roofs are well documented, if they weren’t aesthetically pleasing, then they’d be just as undesirable as if they did not perform well at all. Fortunately, a wide range of styles and varieties exist for potential customers to choose from.

Metal Shake Roofing

Metal shake roofing is roughly analogous to regular old wooden shakes. This means that the metal roofing material has that classic authentic look of wood. You’ll get to choose from multiple colors as well, such as blacks, reds, and browns. The metal is far more durable and lasting than its wooden counterpart, so you get the best of both worlds.

Metal Roof Shingles

This metal roofing type mimics the classic look of smooth slate tiles. This distinct style is really quite elegant and often seen on roofs with wide areas. The charm of regular slate with the benefits of metal roofing is certainly an attractive choice. With metal roofing shingles you also have the choice between a wide variety of paints to color the shingles to your liking.

Metal Roof Tiles

Metal roof tiles are distinctly noted by their classy curves and graceful style. They are a huge improvement over the regular roofing tiles which they mimic as they are lightweight, strong, and durable. This is a huge improvement over the heavy, fragile tiles you regularly would get. And since the color is determined by a coat of paint, the choice is yours.

Metal Roof Panels

This traditional metal roofing material is finally available for residential buildings after having long been reserved only for larger commercial structures. Thanks to the wonders of technology, these are finally affordable enough for the average home. Just splash on your favorite color paint and you’re set to go!

Finishes

Applying a finish can add that final touch of style to your metal roof. In addition to standard painted finishes, you can generally find metallic and granular finishes available. Metallic finishes are basic natural metal-colored paints. They give a metal roof a classic look. Granular finishes have been styled to make your metal roofing materials appear like asphalt, which can have a definitive aesthetic appeal.
