Most homeowners are beginning to see the benefits of a metal roofing system. However, some aren’t really sure if having metal shingles roofs is a great option because they fear that their homes might not look quite appealing or end up looking too modern.
Hiring a professional roofer that has expertise in the installation of metal roof shingles is critical to the success of any roofing project. These professionals know exactly how to handle and install the roofing materials in a way that the end result will not only look appealing, but will also be functional. In today’s post, WABO Roofing Systems explains the basics of metal roofing shingles.
Consider These First
Before going for a metal roof shingles, it is important to consider various factors that may affect the cost of the installation of the roofing. The size of your roof, accessories, type of metal material used and engineering can affect the cost of your installation.
Your metal shingles can also be installed via different methods. You can completely tear off and do a roof replacement. This option can add to the cost of the installation since you need more budget for labor, and it takes more time to do. The second option is sub-purlin retrofitting, where you place a new roof over an existing roof system. This will add durability to your roofing system.
The other two options include stick-framing retrofitting, which you can do if you want an overall design change of your roofing. For example, choose this method if you want to change your flat roofing to a sloped one. Finally, roofing over your old roof can also be done if you don’t want to completely remove your old roof, and you’re sure the deck can accommodate the additional weight.
