Why Metal

Galvalume Metal Roofing is engineered to withstand extreme weather conditions such as hurricane force winds, hail, snow, rain and high temperatures. In testing, metal roof systems have withstood up to 140mph wind force and have historically survived hurricanes, wind storms and fires where other roofing materials have failed.

Metal roofing is highly acceptable in today's environmentally friendly society. It is clean, attractive, lightweight and is 100% recyclable. You will not have ugly mildew stains on metal roofing and cleaning is as simple as hosing it off. Some metal roofs have lasted well over 100 years and are still doing their job. Discount Direct's Metal roofing Plus-Ridge Panels are beautiful as well as durable and available in eleven colors.

Metal roofing is clean, it is 100% recyclable and it eliminates the growing and expensive problem of disposal. A metal roof typically requires less labor to install than either shingle, shake, or tile. Exceptions to this rule would be complicated roofs requiring extensive sheet metal work. Metal roofing reflects and absorbs heat more efficiently than competing materials translating to lower cooling costs. Furthermore, it sheds snow and water for extended life. Dependability Metal roofing does not rot, warp, split, or crack and is impervious to termites and pests.

The high strength steel (80 ksi min. yield) panel configuration and panel size of a typical metal roof add structural integrity to the roof system that is not provided by other roofing materials. A quality metal roof that is properly installed should last the lifetime of the owner. Metal roofing can be installed over the top of many existing roofs, bringing significant savings in time and labor and eliminating the growing disposal problem associated with used shingles.

A properly installed metal roofing system is virtually maintenance free over the life of the roof. Period rinsing with a hose or pressure washer can help keep the surface clean. The surface of metal roofs do not support the growth of algae.
