STANDING SEAM METAL, DALLAS, TX

Although the initial cost for a premium metal roof may be higher than some other roofing materials, it will save money and is worth the investment in the long term. A metal roof can last a lifetime, whereas materials like asphalt require re-roofing every 10 to 20 years. A metal roof can also increase the resale value of your home. In some states, like Texas, putting on a wind and hail resistant metal roof can lower your homeowner's insurance by 35%. D&G Roof Systems completed the re-roof of this home in Dallas, TX using Sheffield Metals CoolR® Series in Galvalume. All panels are U.L. Class 4 rated standing seam panels. This roof is backed by both the Manufacturer's Warranty, and 5 Year Workmanship Warranty from D&G. View the slideshow to the right for more details.


METAL ROOF MYTHS

Lightening: A metal roof will not increase the likelihood of lightning striking your home. However, if your home were hit by lightning, your metal roof would disperse the energy safely throughout the structure. Since metal roofing isn't combustible or flammable, it's a low risk and desirable roofing option where severe weather is concerned, especially for lightning.

Noise: A common misconception is that a metal roof will be noisier than other types of roofing. When installed with solid sheathing, a metal roof on your home will actually silence noise from rain, hail and bad weather, many times much better than other roofing materials.

Dents and Durability: In most cases, a metal roof can withstand decades of abuse from extreme weather like hail, high winds, and heavy snow. Today's systems also have a 150-mph wind rating (equal to an F2 tornado), meaning your metal roof is also safe from wind gusts that can accompany hail storms.

Cool Metal Roofing Saves Energy

 

A Green Roof System is comprised of reflective roofing materials, along with proper ventilation and insulation. Cool Metal Roofing offers an attractive roofing solution available in multiple colors, textures, and profiles, for steep-slope and low-slope applications, that can save your household up to 40% of its annual energy costs, depending on your geographical region. A properly designed, energy efficient roof system will save you money on your monthly utility costs, and may also qualify you for tax credits and local energy efficiency incentives. The secret to metal roofing's energy savings is in its variety of finishes. An unpainted metal roof will reflect much of the solar radiation usually absorbed in your attic and home by an asphalt roof. Pre-painted or granular coated metal roofing systems not only reflect solar energy but also cool your home by re-emitting most of what solar radiation is absorbed. A highly reflective and highly emissive painted or granular-coated metal roof is optimal for reducing energy consumption and can actually re-emit up to 90% of absorbed solar radiation. We can help you determine what cool metal roofing systems is best for your home or building.
