A steel roof is a permanent roofing system, with little maintenance, and with proper installation will last as long as your home.
No. The steel panel forming process provides not only strength, but also reduces any potential noise transfer when coupled with high density standard attic insulation.
No. Unlike concrete tile or asphalt shingle, which store and transfer heat, metal absorbs and dissipates heat quickly. Airflow under the roof helps prevent the transfer of cold air and reduces freeze thaw cycles in the winter. Results include lower air conditioning and heating costs for your home.
Steel is non-combustible. It is light weight and will resist premature roof collapse from an internal fire.
No. SMP roof’s smooth surface allows moss, leaves, dirt, and debris to wash off the roof naturally when it rains.
SMP roof systems are tested and will meet or exceed hurricane specifications, with continuous panel from eave to ridge, there are no tabs for the wind to lift.
No. The heavily layered, AZ 50 Galvalume base substrate with factory applied primer and colored paint coatings will not rust.
Excessively large hail can damage almost anything, but SMP roof has a UL 2218 Class 4-hail resistance rating, the highest rating available.
While it is safe to walk on, in accordance to manufacturers' instructions, the low-maintenance SMP roof almost eliminates that need. With SMP roof, it is no longer necessary to replace trim and shingles that have blown off or to patch leaks in badly worn areas.
