What is Metal Roofing?
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
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?
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.
