Benefits of Metal Roofs
Energy-efficientMetal roofs can save summer cooling expenses by up to 20% or more thanks to thermal breaks and reflective coatings.
Lower maintenanceWith a correctly installed and designed corrugated tin roof, you'll no longer have to worry about costly roof repairs or upkeep, as most other materials require.
Resistance to mildewThe growth of mildew and algae is favored by a moist environment, which is why water-resistant metal roofs are an excellent choice. Cleaning your roof of mold, mildew, and algae is a great way to keep your house looking great for many years to come.
CondensationMetal roofing doesn't pose a condensation issue when installed on ordinary residential construction with roof decking and adequate attic insulation and ventilation. This is because tin roofing doesn't absorb moisture, making it less susceptible.
Environmentally friendlySince they are energy-efficient, recyclable, and made from recycled materials, metal roofs are good for the environment.
Lighter weightLow-weight roofs protect structures from instability and damage as they age, especially in seismically active areas.
LongevityThe lifespan of a metal roof can range from 25 to 50 years if it is properly installed and maintained.
Partially recycled materialA high-quality aluminum roof should contain anywhere from 35% to 95% recycled material.
Fire-resistantCorrugated sheet metal roofs are resistant to flying embers and sparks, preventing fires from outside a building.
Recyclable materialMetal roofs are completely recyclable at the end of their useful life, unlike conventional roofs that must be disposed of in a landfill.
Solar optionsSolar panels can be mounted on some metal roofs using a clamping mechanism without compromising the roof's integrity or voiding the manufacturer's warranty. It's also a sturdy base that can handle massive solar installations, reducing the risk of roof failures.
Modern styleMetal roofing provides a long-lasting uniqueness and charm to a house. Other types of roofing materials result in deterioration in appearance with time. On the other hand, metal roofing, such as a standing seam metal roof, can maintain a brand-new appearance for many years to come.

Metal Roof Repair
Metal roofs are a popular choice for both residential and commercial properties because of their long-term resilience and low environmental impact. There are many advantages to using metal roofs over other roofing materials, including their ability to resist fire. However, if your metal roof isn’t properly fitted or maintained, it’s more susceptible to a wide range of issues.
Oil canning, leakage, scuffed and scratched metal, corrosion, incompatible metals & components, and chalking & fading are some of the most typical problems with metal roofs. Our roof experts can ensure that your metal roofing is correctly restored with the appropriate materials. Contact Athens Remodeling & Roofing for a free metal roof inspection today.
Metal Roofing Design Factors to Consider
Adding a metal roof to your house will improve its appearance, raise its resale value, minimize your carbon footprint, and provide you with protection for the rest of your life. Here are some factors you need to keep in mind when deciding on the design:
Finish typeMetal roofs are coated in one of two ways, polyvinylidene fluoride finishes (PVDF) and polyester.
GlossMetal roofs with a matte or low-gloss finish are the most popular choice for homeowners.
ColorThe color of your aluminum roofing has an effect on the appearance of your house. As a result, it impacts how long your roof will seem new.
GranularThese are sometimes used on metal roofs and come with aesthetic advantages and functional drawbacks.
Steps Athens Remodeling & Roofing Take to Install a New Metal Roof
By employing our services, you can keep your home in excellent condition and prevent structural difficulties in the future. Here’s what you can expect throughout the process:
- First, we will apply the underlayment. You need an underlayment because it protects your roofing from adverse weather and prevents leaks and water damage.
- To avoid any seams, we will trim the panels to the length of your roof. Water can seep underneath the panels if the seams aren’t properly sealed.
- Trim ends will be closed by bending them. Cuts and bends for each trim are specific to its shape.
- We’ll attach the eave trim to the roof deck directly on top of the underlayment using one-inch roofing nails.
- We will splice and overlap the trims. We’ll splice the ends together where they meet. As a first step, we’ll angle cut the underlapping trim’s bottom hem. A sealant will be sprayed on top of the underlapping trim after it has been installed.
- We’ll draw a line for reference. A reference line is essential to ensure that roofing panels are installed uniformly.
- We’re going to begin putting up the panels. A foam closing strip is used to hold each metal panel in place. Bugs and water are kept out by these strips, which are designed to fit the panel’s corrugated underside.
- We will overlap panels properly. As a best practice, we’ll make sure each panel is laid flat, with the overlapped edge having a shorter rib leg that doesn’t touch the metal sheet roofing surface.
- After that, the panels will be fastened. Following the manufacturer’s instructions during installation is essential because storm-related roof failures are frequently caused by poor roof fastening.
- Lastly, we finish the process by securing a cap over the ridge. As the roof’s topmost edge, ridge caps are plastic or metal panels that serve to shield it from water damage.
