The beauty of metal roofs!

Residential metal roofing is one of the fastest growing segments of home improvement – more than quadrupling its market share over the past decade. The benefits offered by today’s metal roofs allow homeowners to upgrade their homes with products of lasting value. While other roofs quickly diminish in value as they age, metal roofs provide the following lasting benefits:

  • Proven performance expectation of 50+ years
  • Beautiful styles to match any home or neighborhood
  • Interlocking panels for maximum wind resistance
  • Fire resistance
  • Energy efficiency by keeping homes cooler
  • Low weight to help preserve structural integrity and life


While the benefits of metal roofing are well-known, our company takes things even further with our expert installation. Consider these unique benefits:[/vc_column_text][vc_separator type=”transparent” up=”30″ up_style=”px” down=”0″ down_style=”px”][no_blockquote text=”Metal roofing systems are one of the fattest growing home improvements you can do to your home.” show_border=”no” show_quote_icon=”yes” quote_icon_font=”with_icon” text_color=”#283033″ quote_icon_color=”#eaeaea” quote_icon_size=”105″][vc_separator type=”transparent” up=”35″ up_style=”px” down=”0″ down_style=”px”][vc_column_text]Metal roofing is becoming more and more popular as composition shingles rise in price. We believe metal is an excellent alternative. You can drive around your neighborhood and see metal roofs in many different types and installed on all types of homes. The key to the longevity of a metal roof is how the roof is installed. Is all the flashing installed properly? Eave metal edging, chimney and skylight flashing, and the vent pipes are the areas that take extra care and experience to do correctly. At Exterior Renovations we understand the cost associated with installing metal roofing and we make sure the metal roofing we install will give you years of worry-free service.

Metal roofing benefits are lightweight, strong, fire resistance, and energy efficient. Metal roofing will carry the Class 4 hail resistance rating. This rating will get the homeowner a discount off his insurance premiums. The one drawback to the Class 4 discount is the insurance companies require the homeowner to sign a “cosmetic endorsement” which means the insurance will not pay for any damage on the roof if they consider it cosmetic. This should be considered very carefully since a new metal roof is so expensive in relationship to the small discount the insurance offers.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator type=”transparent” up=”35″ up_style=”px” down=”0″ down_style=”px”][vc_column_text]The best looking and the most expensive metal roofs are often called a Standing Seam.  This refers to a seam that is mechanically hemmed every 12 to 24 inches depending on the look you want to achieve.  The big advantage of a Standing Seam is there is no exposed fasteners on the roof.  The panels are attached to the roof deck with metal clips and screws.  These clips are hidden with the next panel.  Standing Seam roofs can vary in thickness or what is often called the gauge.   Hartman Roofing prefers to install a 24 gauge panel because it holds up better in hail and does not warp (“Oil Can”) like thinner metal but the thicker the gauge the higher the cost.  Oil Canning is a common term used and it is caused by the metal panels expanding and contracting in the heat and cold.  All Standing Seam metal does have some oil canning but at Hartman Roofing our years of experience have taught us some tricks to minimize this.

Below are 3 common metal roof profiles.  These roofs are considered a more standard panel while the Standing Seam metal panels are custom made for your home.  Therefore these standard panels will be lower in price than a Standing Seam.  It is important to talk to your Exterior Renovations representative to see which profile works best for your home and budget.   There is much to consider when choosing a metal roof.  Let us help answer your questions and concerns.[vc_row row_type=”row” use_row_as_full_screen_section=”no” type=”full_width” text_align=”left” box_shadow_on_row=”no” full_width=””][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”352083″ img_size=”740×340″ style=”vc_box_outline” css_animation=””][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]Metal roofs have come a long way in a short period of time and making them look like regular shingles is pricey but amazing at the same time.  Some developments don’t allow for metal roofs yet so this becomes an excellent option for you.[vc_row row_type=”row” use_row_as_full_screen_section=”no” type=”full_width” text_align=”left” box_shadow_on_row=”no” full_width=””][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”352082″ img_size=”446×265″ style=”vc_box_outline” css_animation=””][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]The standard metal look is no longer for pole sheds and airport hangars, there now a smart look for your home.  There’s a wide range of color options to choose from and this trend is rapidly catching on.[vc_row row_type=”row” use_row_as_full_screen_section=”no” type=”full_width” text_align=”left” box_shadow_on_row=”no” full_width=””][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”352084″ img_size=”460×309″ style=”vc_box_outline” css_animation=””][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]Not only does a metal roof look amazing they also come with options you can add to your roof like snow and ice prevention attachments.
