Exotic choices in metal roofing systems
There has been a massive increase in delivering the most innovative techniques and introducing premium quality, yet affordable materials when it comes to the roofing industry. Thanks to the general advance in science and technology, many new features were added to a standard roof. We’re long past that time where a roof is simply there to cover your head and keep you safe from your local weather conditions. Nowadays, besides its obvious function, a roof is there to add some visual appeal to your home. It can also create energy and reduce your energy costs while increasing your living standard. There are many choices available on the market. Some of the most popular ones, when divided considering the material used are asphalt, metal, wood, and slate roofing systems. Each of these represents its own category with many subtypes. This huge variety of choices allows for the creation of the most individual roofs out there. In today’s age, you can create the roof of your dreams. And it doesn’t seem like this revolution in the roofing industry will stop anytime soon.
In this article, we will focus on some of the more exotic choices in the metal roofing system category. Materials considered to be exotic are those whose use isn’t that common. Metals that enter that category are copper, zinc and tin-plated stainless steel.
The main characteristic of metal roofing systems lies in their exceptional levels of both durability and longevity. While regular metals may only last up to a maximum of 60 years, if cared for properly, the above mentioned exotic choices can live up to a few centuries without requiring any special kind of maintenance.
Another thing that sets them apart is their high cost. That is also one of the main reasons why such a choice isn’t that common among the middle class. Considering that you could actually afford two or even three complete roofing systems with the money you would require for installing an exotic roof, people often decide to add smaller features that will nonetheless enhance their looks.
Those who wish to add a more rustic, worn out look to their homes often apply tin-plated stainless steel roofing systems. They look like tin, which gives off that special vibe but have the resilience of stainless steel.
In any case, if you’ve decided to install an exotic roof, spend a fair amount of time on choosing the perfect contractor who will know how to handle such expensive materials. Copper and zinc actually require a highly developed set of skills and master equipment to guarantee the proper installment. Make sure you can trust your contractor and check all of his verifications. The last thing you would want is a messy job and a missing contractor, not to mention the lack of a huge amount of money.
