If you’re looking at building a new home or upgrading your existing roof system, you should consider installing metal roofing.
Metal Residential Roofing
Steel is a popular choice for metal roofing due to its exceptional strength and durability. It offers excellent resistance against harsh weather conditions, such as high winds and hail. Additionally, steel roofing is often coated to enhance its corrosion resistance and extend its lifespan.
Aluminum roofing is lightweight and durable. Additionally, aluminum is resistant to corrosion and does not rust under most conditions. Aluminum roofing is known for its excellent heat reflectivity, which can reduce cooling costs by 10-25%.
Copper roofing stands out both before and after it develops a patina. Copper roofing systems are attractive and have excellent longevity. As a roofing metal, copper is highly resistant to weather conditions and changing temperatures. Copper is also one of the most flame-resistant roofing materials.

Styles of Metal Roofing
Standing Seam Roofs
Standing seam metal roofing is a popular design for residential and commercial roofing. Standing seam roofs are characterized by vertical panels and raised interlocking seams. Metal standing seam roofs offer a sleek, modern aesthetic while providing excellent protection against leaks, water damage, storm damage, and extreme weather conditions.
Metal shingles replicate the appearance of traditional roofing materials like asphalt, slate, or tile shingles while delivering all of the benefits of metal roofing. Roofs with metal shingles offer durability, fire resistance, and a wide range of design options to suit various architectural styles.
Corrugated metal roofing might be what first comes to mind when you think of metal roofing. Roofs with corrugated metal feature repetitive grooves that create a distinct pattern. This type of roofing material is lightweight and cost-effective.
While you might think of corrugated metal roofing is often used on industrial or agricultural buildings, it can provide effective protection for your home without changing your home’s aesthetic.
What Are The Features of Metal Roofing?
Metal roofs are built to last, withstanding the test of time, extreme weather conditions, and environmental challenges.
Metal roofing materials have excellent fire-resistant properties, providing extra safety for your home and family.
Metal roofs reflect solar heat, reducing the amount of heat absorbed into your home. This helps to lower cooling costs—making them an energy-efficient choice.
Metal roofs require minimal maintenance compared to other roofing materials. They do not rot, warp, or crack, and they are resistant to pests.
Metal roofing is often made from recycled materials and is itself fully recyclable at the end of its lifespan, making it an eco-friendly choice for homeowners.
How Does Metal Roofing Improve Energy Bills?
Metal roofs reflect a high amount of energy from the sun. We refer to this as the solar reflectivity rate, or the measure of coolness that a roof provides. Overall, solar reflectivity reduces the heat absorbed by your roof, which reduces your air conditioning costs, especially in the summer months.
Metal roofs can be installed with additional insulation, improving the overall energy efficiency of your home. Insulated metal panels prevent heat transfer, keeping your home comfortable year-round and reducing the need for excessive heating or cooling.
Metal roofing materials have a significantly longer lifespan compared to asphalt shingles, especially in Tennessee’s climate. While asphalt shingles typically last around 15 to 30 years, metal roofs can last 40 years or more with proper installation and maintenance. In some cases, metal roofs can even exceed 50 years.
