What is Metal Roofing?Metal Roofing Columbus

Metal roofs are coming back into vogue. In the late 1700s, zinc, copper, and lead were the most popular materials used for roofing - such famous historic buildings as the Washington Monument and Thomas Jefferson's Monticello have metal roofs.

Standing-seam steel roofing is the most popular residential metal roofing today. But metal roofs can also be made to resemble wood shakes, clay tiles, shingles, and Victorian metal tiles. Aluminum or coated steel is formed into individual shingles or tiles, or into modular panels four feet long that mimic a row of shingles or tiles.

Metal roofs are durable, fire retardant and almost maintenance-free. They are also energy efficient; metal reflects heat and blocks its transfer into the attic. Metal roofs absorb 34 percent less heat than asphalt shingles, and homeowners switching to metal roofing reported saving up to 20 percent on their energy bills.

What is Slate Roofing?

Columbus Slate RoofingTile and slate roofing is very heavy, sometimes requiring structural reinforcement. Slate roofs last much longer (50 years or more) than asphalt shingle roofs. Depending on the slate's quality, the roof may last 50 years or more. Slate does cost a lot more initially, and because it is brittle, may require more repairs over time.

There aren't a lot of people skilled in slate repair work, so it can sometimes be a problem to get repairs done.

Among those that opt for slate, most do so because it is perceived to be a higher-end product. Among new Ohio homes, you're only likely to see it on the most expensive. If you already have slate, you're usually better off repairing it rather than replacing it.

Whatever roofing material you want, Paramount Roofing can help you with your project. We specialize in both metal and slate roofing and are committed to creating the best experience for our clients.
