The sheeting for metal roofing generally consists of galvanized steel in a corrugated form. Gelinas Roofing & Renovations believes that there are many advantages to using metal roofing for your needs.
For instance, metal roofing is quite lightweight. This makes metal roofing an ideal roofing material if you live in area that is prone to natural disasters or in a colder climate with heavy snow and ice coverage. Another advantage of metal roofing is that metal roofing is very durable and the average lifespan for metal roofing is about 25 years, which is double that of the typical asphalt material used in the Vancouver roofing industry. Gelinas Roofing & Renovations can also provide you with added durability via aluminium alloy insulation. Gelinas Roofing & Renovations has scientific evidence that this added insulation can increase the lifespan of a roof by up to 50%.
Gelinas Roofing & Renovations also recommends metal roofing because of its optimal weight to strength ratio and impressive flexibility. Metal roofing is also a great choice due to its resistance against wind, fire, and hailstorms. Interestingly, most metal roofing materials such as copper and aluminium consist of 95% biodegradable alloys which make it a great option if you are concerned about the environmental impact of your roof.
Metal roofing is energy and labour efficient, and has minimal upkeep requirements. However, installation of metal roofing is not foolproof. The inefficient use of compounds and their subsequent mixing can exacerbate erosion thereby shortening the lifespan of your Vancouver roof. That is why installation by a certified professional installer such as Gelinas Roofing & Renovations is incredibly important.
