The roof in your home is a major line of defense against the power of mother nature.
While a common choice is asphalt shingles, a metal roof is the premier product for strength, longevity and carefree maintenance. Asphalt roofing--primarily made of oil-pregnated paper or fiberglass--begins to deteriorate as soon as it's installed. Likewise, wood shingles require high maintenance and if neglected, will dry out and crack over time, and concrete roof tile can fracture from freeze/thaw cycles.
Beautiful and strong, Drexel Metal Roofing Systems are precision-engineered to withstand decades of extreme weather like tornadoes, wind storms, heavy snow, and hailstorms. It will not deteriorate and is virtually maintenance free.
Featuring custom style and appeal, here are the most common questions we are asked when it comes to metal roofing:
Are they Noisy?
This is the #1 question we get asked. The answer is no. Drexel metal roofs are typically installed over your attic space with insulation plus your roof deck and our underlayment. This makes our metal roofs no more noisy than other roofing materials on the market.
How heavy are they?
While metal roofing may not be as light as a feather, on average, a metal roof is 50% lighter than an asphalt shingle roof and 75% lighter than concrete tile, fiber cement shakes and slate.
Metal roofing is a popular choice for homes in areas with heavy snowfall, which is why they are becoming more and more desirable in Michigan! A metal roof sheds snow quickly, thereby protecting the integrity of the roof and eliminating ice damming at the eaves that can cause water back up and eventually leak into your home.
Will metal roofing lower my homeowners insurance premiums?
It's possible and we encourage you to check with your insurance agent. Metal roofs are safer than most roofing materials in the event of a lightning strike. They are not combustible and are less likely to start a fire. Also, Drexel Metal Roofing Systems carry a UL class "A" fire rating for roof coverings, which are evaluated for the ability to resist the spread of fire into the attic, resist flame spreading and resist generating burning embers.
Drexel Metal Roofing Systems are available in luxurious colors, dramatic lines and graceful curves--from sleek and modern to charming and traditional.
