Metal Roofing in Utah

Lifetime Roofing is proud to offer customers across the Wasatch Front with a standing seam metal roofing option. A standing seam metal roof is an extremely durable roof that will not only last over sixty years, but metal roofs can help reduce insurance costs to the homeowner. Up front costs are admittedly higher when compared to asphalt shingles, PVC, or TPO roofs, but over the lifetime of the roof metal is comparable in cost. This comparison is due in part to standing seam metal roofs outlasting any of the other roofing options. Metal roofs rarely, if ever, need to be replaced. When professionally installed a standing seam metal roof is highly energy efficient and can ultimately lead to lower energy bills for homeowners. The lowered energy bills are due to the fact that standing seam metal roofs reflect more solar radiation than asphalt shingles. Similar to other roofing systems, standing seam metal roofs are also compatible with solar panels.

Are metal roofs louder than other roof types?

There are many misconceptions surrounding standing seam metal roofs. The first misconception is that metal roofs are much more noisy when compared to asphalt shingle roofs. This misconception is a result of tin roofs installed on sheds without any insulation or solid sheathing to reduce the noise.

Are metal roofs safe in lightning?

Homeowners should not be worried about attracting lighting strikes during thunderstorms since standing seam metal roofs do not get struck more frequently than asphalt shingle roofs. Although metal is a conductor of electricity there is no correlation regarding standing seam metal roofs with an increase in lighting strikes. Furthermore, if a standing seam metal roof is struck by lighting it will not catch on fire resulting in an overall safer roof.

Do metal roofs require more maintenance?

Standing seam metal roofs also do not require as much maintenance as other roofing systems. That being said, Lifetime Roofing still recommends checking on a standing seam metal roof periodically to ensure there is nothing that could eventually lead to a failure in the roofing system.
