Metal roofs have been found to last 40 to 70 years, and are growing by leaps and bounds in popularity. There are many things that set metal roofing apart from composition roofing:

  • Long-lasting
  • Economic in the long run (higher upfront cost, but lower long-term costs)
  • Extensive color options
  • Resistant to fading, if proper coating is selected
  • Lower weight puts less stress on building structure
  • Resistant to wind and hail damage
  • Fire-safe materials
  • Fully recyclable

Due to expanded color and aesthetic  options, metal roofs are growing in popularity. The extensive Valspar palette is available for architectural, commercial, residential and industrial projects, bringing designs to life with color.  With extreme resistance to abrasion, chipping, and fading, Valspar’s Fluropon 70% PDVF coating is a good choice for metal roofs.

There is now design freedom when using metal roofs, with options that add dimension and visual effect. Metal panels that are embossed or stamped have provide the appearance of shingles, clay tiles, slat and more that are gaining popularity.

For projects where longevity or sustainability are big goals, metal roofs are a good choice. With so many colors and styles to choose from, the sky is the limit.
