Buying Metal Roofing Tips

Buying Metal Roofing Tips

Buying Metal Roofing for your house, barn, shed, porch or whatever other project you may have in mind, shouldn't be a complicated process. Although there are many Metal Roofing panel profiles in the market to choose from, we have tried to make it a stress-free process. Here are just a few tips to consider when choosing Metal Roofing.

Metal Roofing Profiles

There are many Metal Roofing profiles to choose from in the market place, but the most common profile requested is the 3ft wide panel. It works great for many different Metal Roofing projects, including, houses, barns, sheds, carports and other projects. Some manufacturers refer to this panel as tuff rib, classic rib, sm rib, ultra rib, and others. It is an all-round multi-purpose panel and very cost effective. This is the main panel we have chosen to offer on the Buy Metal Roofing Direct website.

Metal Roofing Colors

When it comes to Metal Roofing, there are very many vibrant colors to choose from as well as different paint qualities out there. Sometimes having too many colors to choose from can be very cumbersome and overwhelming. Most customers select a color based on the following three criteria.  

Customers Buy Based on Energy Efficiency

One reason people buy Metal Roofing is because it can save on energy consumption, especially in Florida with its extremely hot summers. Air conditioning Floridian's homes causes high energy bills, so choosing panels with  a higher TSA (Total Solar Reflectivity) rating helps cut energy costs by up to 40%!

Customers Buy Based on Looks

Some customers choose a Metal Roof color based on what the rest of their house looks like. Usually it comes down to what would look good with shutters, or what would look good with the color of the house. Everybody has their own reasons for choosing what color their next Metal Roof will be.

Customers Buy Based on Fade

As time goes on, Metal Roofing paint technology continues to improve.  However, people still drive by and see houses with metal roofing that has faded over time.  Buy Metal Roofing Direct sells Metal Roofing with Sherwin-Williams paint on it. It has been real-world tested to withstand Florida's harsh weather conditions, and comes with long fade warranties to prove that it is the best in the industry. These days, because of how technology has developed, even dark color Metal Roofs last for a very long time, and are backed by chalk and fade warranties.
