Why Metal Roofing?

Colorado is hard on your home's roofing

A lot can be expected of a roof in this part of the country. And while there are plenty of strong roofing materials, metal roofing can be a durable and long-lasting option for many homeowners.

Although some of the upfront costs are higher with a metal roof it is important to focus on the long-term cost savings. Metal roofs can withstand heavy winds and intense hail better than many other roofing options, and, since they last for decades, your overall long-term cost from repairs, leaks, and claims can be substantially lower than with other types of roofing.


Benefits of Metal Roofing

  • Low-to-no maintenance
  • Incredibly durable to Colorado weather
  • Energy Efficient
  • Ultra long lasting
  • Top industry warranties

Metal Roofs can last up to 50+ years

A Lasting Investment

While the initial cost of a quality metal roof is higher than roofing materials such as asphalt, it’s an investment that pays returns over a lifetime. A metal roof can last up to 50+ years or more with little maintenance, can often be repainted versus replaced, and may even increase the resale value of your home.

Types of Metal Roofs

While there are many vendors and specific types of metal roofs, they are primarily two types to consider, Standing Seam or Exposed Fastener.

Standing Seam Metal

Standing seam refers to a roof that has a seam standing over another panel—in other words interlocking.  These panels usually range in width from 12” to 20” inches.  Built in nail flanges or mechanical clips are utilized to mechanically fasten these panels to the substrate. Once the roof and perimeter metal is installed you are left with a roof that is feels unified, as there are no exposed fasteners, other than mechanical, electrical or plumbing penetrations.

Rosner custom fabricates our standing seam roofs on site. This eliminates damage to the panels and speeds up the production time on your installation.  We stage our roll former on site and produce our panels out of steel coil. Standing seam metal roofs have fit and finish warranties  that are specific to the manufacture and are superior to the type of warranty you would typically see for shingle roofs.

 Two Popular profiles seen with standing seam roofs are Snaplock and Mechanical lock profiles.

Snaplock profiles are formed in such a way that they are interlocked with the use of a clip that acts as a “hook” for the seams to interlock. Snaplock roofs are great for roofing and metal siding.

 A mechanical lock seam is one where there is sill a clip mechanically fastened to the substrate, however, the entire seam is crimped its entire length.  Mechanical lock roofs are great for roof areas that are lower slope or if wind uplift is a concern.

Exposed fastener

Exposed fastener roofs like PBR or 7/8” corrugated or Pro Panel II roofs are the type or roof or siding that you would see on a barn or our building. Some folks regard them as Ag profiles. The difference with this style roof/siding is that the pieces usually come in a 3 foot width and are attached to the substrate with exposed screws that have an EPDM washer.

Recently, we have seen these types of metal being specified on commercial buildings, as architects are adding more and more metal into their designs. Commercial wall panels, as some of these profiles are referred to as, are becoming more popular as a way to accent or highlight an otherwise “traditional building.

Fit and finish warranty information varies by manufacture  but typically they are superior to shingle style roofs.

Metal roofs generally run around 3 times more than a shingle roof, with the understanding that you are installing a “lifetime” roof. Since Colorado is an active market, some of our clients have opted to replace their roofs with metal, as metal tends to hold up to hail better than a shingle roof.
