Metal Roofing Made Easy
For far too long, metal roofing was relegated by farm and industrial buildings. In recent years, however, that is no longer the case. This is because metal roofing is highly versatile and stylish and can mimic just about any other kind of roofing material. Not only that, metal roofing can stand on its own as a natural metal or it can be finished in a number of different colors to provide the visual aesthetic that you want your commercial building to have. Enjoying the benefits of a metal roofing system can be easily had these days, especially when you bring in the professionals at Texas Cool Roofing & Waterproofing for metal roof installation. We have been happily serving Austin, TX for many years and plan to be around for a whole lot longer. Give us a call today at 512-617-7335 to find out how we can help.

Metal roofing systems are some of the most durable available. Whereas granules and asphalt shingles can crack and peel, metal roofing is meant to stand up to the test of time. This is because its finish allows it to be stronger for longer.
The average metal roof these days is finished with three separate layers: primer, paint, and a protective coating. Unless you opt for a natural metal, the metal itself is rarely exposed to the elements. And even if you opt for a natural metal, that metal is typically protected with a finish that keeps abrasion away.
Those protective layers will not only keep that metal roof shining longer, but it will help keep it weather-resistant for decades. You can also have your metal roof painted in a flash, which makes style changes far less expensive and easier than having a new roof installed.
The Benefits of Metal Roofing
As more of us become environmentally conscious, making the switch to a metal roofing system makes for an excellent decision. This is because metal roofing will outlast just about any kind of roofing material. Not only that, it is lighter to transport than shingles are, requires little maintenance to upkeep, and easily recycles when its life is at an end.
If you are in your forever home or want to pass down your home to future generations, metal roofing makes for a wise lifetime investment. If you plan to sell your home, making the switch to a metal roof is a noticeable upgrade and also provides curb appeal. It also sends the message to home buyers that you have maintained the home well.
One of the major benefits of a metal roofing system is that they are nearly all energy-efficient. Many of them meet the federal Energy Star program’s approval when it comes to lowering dependence on foreign oil sources, limiting greenhouse gas emissions, and it can actually save you on your energy bills over time.
Metal roofs do this because they reflect infrared radiation away from your home. That radiation is what heats your home up, making it more difficult to keep cool without the use of an HVAC system. By reflecting that light away, your home will stay far cooler without having to use that HVAC system excessively. This can lead to far more reasonable energy bills.
What might also surprise you is that metal roofing systems are actually safer than other materials when it comes to lightning strikes. Even though metal is a conductor, metal roofs do not attract lightning, instead, they transfer the energy of the strike down into the ground. Not only are metal roofs safe during a storm, but they are also fire-resistant, meaning that, if a fire were to begin in your house, your roof would be safe and would not be an avenue for the fire to spread faster.
