Tips when choosing a metal roof

The first thing to consider is that there are many types of metal roofs and which one is better for you. The following three metal roofing systems are recommended based on the homeowner’s budget, style, and regional environment, as well as the longevity and durability of different types of metal roofs.

The difference between Metal shingles or metal panels

Metal shingles: Similar to how wood shingles are installed, metal roofing tiles stacked on top of each other are called metal shingles. Suitable for sloped roofs.

Metal panel: the top goes straight to the bottom, with no horizontal cross lines.

Metal roofing colors

When choosing the color of a metal roof, you need to consider whether it matches the wall panel. The right color combination can make your home more beautiful. And the wrong color combination (red and green) is disgusting.

White metal roof: White metal roofs are suitable for hot or sunny areas. White has higher UV reflectance than any other color.

Black metal roof: Black has the lowest UV reflectance. It is suitable for areas with cooler temperatures or shorter periods of sun exposure.

Because of the attic ventilation system, roof color affects indoor temperature. Homeowners can choose according to their favorite colors.
