Metal roofs are considered a great upgrade from shingles. While it is true that a metal roof costs more than the standard shingle roof, it has, by far, a longer life span and comes in more styles and selections. There are metal products that have the appearance of shingles. Other available products are “Standing Seam” panels and “PBR” panels.
- Metal versus shingles?
If the desire when replacing a roof is to install a product that will last a lifetime then the metal is a great way to go. Metal roofs are considered to have a lifetime warranty.
- Is the underlayment for a metal roof the same as for shingles?
No, the underlayment that Liberty Roofing of Central Florida uses is a premium underlayment that is for tile and metal only. While Florida building codes allow the use of a synthetic underlayment when installing metal, we ONLY use the premium “Tile & Metal” peel & stick product on all metal jobs we install.
- Are there many color choices?
Yes, the metal actually offers the most choices when it comes to color.
- What is the advantages of a metal roof?
Metal roofs add great additional value to any home or business. Metal is a stronger product. As already mentioned metal offers lifetime warranties.
Tile roofs add a unique aesthetically pleasing appearance to any structure and can complement a variety of home styles.
