June 03, 2016

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 is many metal roofing panel profiles out there in the market to choose from, we have tried to make it a stress free process.  Here are some tips when choosing metal roofing.

Metal Roofing Profiles

There are many metal roofing profiles to choose from out in the market place, but the most common profile requested is the 3' 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 around multi-purpose panel and very cost effective.  This is the panel we have chose 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 have too many colors to  choose from can become very cumbersome and overwhelming.  Most customer either select a color based on three different criteria.  

Customers Buy Based on Energy Efficiency

One reason why people buy metal roofing is because it can save on energy consumption, especially here in Florida with our hot summers.  Air conditioning our homes contributes highly to energy bills.  Selecting a lighter color would go a long way in helping your energy bills.

Customers Buy Based on Looks

Some customers choose a metal roof color based on what the rest of their house looks like.  Usually it might come 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 they want their next metal roof color to 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 Valspar 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 out there right now.  If customers are still concerned about metal roofing fading, then they usually will either select Galvalume as their chose or a lighter color.
