When people talk about the types of metal roofing, standing seam metal roofs, corrugated metal roofs, and stone-coated steel roofing, which have become more and more popular recently, appear the most. When it comes to the recycling of metal roofs, they can recover about 60% of the installation costs. In addition, with the most maintenance-free roof, you don’t have to worry about the annual maintenance cost after installation. In addition to the need to consider roofing materials, aesthetics is also essential. After all, no homeowner wants to make his house old-fashioned.
JINHU is a supplier and manufacturer of stone coated steel roofing from China. It shares three types of metal roofs to help you understand which one is best for you.
Corrugated metal roofing
In fact, corrugated metal is the most popular choice because of its relatively favorable price. Now, its cost is similar to that of asphalt shingles. However, its durability and service life are better than asphalt shingles. On average, the service life of corrugated roofs is between 30-45 years. If proper maintenance is carried out, the service life can be increased by 5-10 years. In appearance, the corrugated metal tile is easy to identify, it has a wavy rib appearance.
The corrugated metal roofing is particularly durable even in extreme weather, and the acrylic paint added to the surface can provide good protection. Acrylic paint can reflect sunlight well, block heat outdoors and reduce energy costs.
Standing seam metal roofing
The standing seam metal roof has a very significant difference. Its appearance is not a ribbed design. It is made of panels extending vertically upwards. The appearance is created by an interlocking seam system, which firmly connects each panel together. It has a service life of up to 50 years, is sturdy, and can be corroded by the low-grade external environment.
The disadvantage is that the initial installation cost is relatively high. It is a cumbersome roof, which has higher requirements on the structure of the house, but it also means that it is stronger.
JINHU Stone Coated Metal Roofing
Stone coated metal roofing also has the disadvantage of higher initial installation cost, but with the innovation of JINHU technology, the initial cost has been reduced. And the service life, durability, investment, and return on investment are excellent. The best thing about it is that it perfectly replicates the appearance of other roof tiles. People think it is the least common roof tile because its excellent appearance imitates people’s eyes.
Which roof is best for you?
These three types of metal roofs have advantages and disadvantages. Corrugated roofs are more favorable than straight seam roofs, but have a shorter service life. Standing seam roofs are expensive, but have a long service life and are very durable in bad weather. They all have a unique appearance, which should be considered separately from your building.
As the initial cost of stone-coated steel roofing has dropped, it has become the most popular product among metal roofs. The stone coating on the surface can reflect ultraviolet rays, buffer the impact of hail, and prevent the erosion of harsh environments. The most important thing is to perfectly replicate the appearance of other roof tiles.
The above is JINHU’s introduction about the most popular types of metal tile roofs. If you need to know more about stone-coated steel roofs, please contact JINHU metal roof supplier.
