Why Choose Metal?
Since you have chosen metal for your roof replacement, you are probably already aware of the benefits, but lets explain them for those that are still on the fence about which material to go with. The upfront cost of a metal roofing system is more, but since it lasts much longer and has less maintenance, it will save you money in the long run. Asphalt shingles will only last you anywhere from 10-50 years, but a metal roof can last a lifetime! NuRay’s roofing products are 100% recyclable, so material left over from a project can be recycled, reducing waist. With industry-leading warranties, you can be comfortable knowing your roof is taken care of.
FAQs about metal roofing
There are many questions about metal roofing that have been addressed by the experts at NuRay. Here are just a few of the most common.
- Is metal roofing noisy when it rains? Most people think of on old barn when they think of what the rain will sound like hitting a metal roof. But a home will have a solid wood roof deck and underlayment dampening the sound. The result is that a metal roof will sound similar to any roofing material.
- Do metal roofs get hot in the Summer? All roofs get hot in the summer, but some, including metal, come in “cool” colors that reflect solar heat. Metal roofs also release solar heat more readily saving money on energy costs of the home.
- Are metal roofs heavy? Contrary to popular belief, metal roofs are actually 50% lighter than asphalt roofs, and 75% lighter than concrete tile, and slate. So, no, metal is not considered a heavy roofing material.
- What will happen during a lightning storm? Metal roofs are no more likely to be struck by lightning than any other roof. But if it does get struck, it dissipates the electrical charge, actually helping to prevent damage.
Our favorite Options
Here at Chase Construction North West Inc., we most frequently use the 1000 and 6000 series of this line of products. They both come in a variety of gauges that are perfect for any roofing project, and you don’t need to worry about lack of finishes with either as there are a number of options available. They both require a 3:12 minimum slope and apply over open framing and/or solid substrate. They also both have flat panel, pencil runs, or striations options.
The NRM 1000
In the 1000 series, continuous panels run from the ridge of the roof all the way down to the eaves, meaning there are no horizontal seams. This is a standing seam system, the seams between each panel are raised above the level of the roofing panel preventing water entry. In total, the roof has a far fewer number of seams. This metal material is also much tougher than standard composition, provides the “cool roof” benefits, and comes in a much wider array of colors. The 1000 series is available in 22, 24 and 26 gauge and comes with a concealed fastener coup system. The finishes available are 40-year painted, Zincalume Plus, copper, and aluminum.
The NRM 6000
The 6000 series is a classic snap lock system. This type of system provides all of the sturdiness and protection benefits, as well as the aesthetic factors. The snap lock system is designed to save on labor costs as the seams can be locked by a simple snapping of the panels together. This allows sections of the roof to be easily accessed if there are any problems down the line. Additionally, the snap lock roof panel installation offers high level of wind uplift protection and with it, these standing seam roof panel float on the roof deck, allowing for expansion and contraction with temperature extremes. The 6000 series comes in 24 and 26 gauge and has a concealed fastener snap lock system with no clips needed. The finishes available are 40-year painted, Zincalume Plus, and Copper. With either system, you can be sure that your roof will look sleek and protect your home for life.

Thank you for the blog. I want to get a new roof and thought the internet might have some answers on which type I should chose. You wrote that a metal roof will actually save you money because it lasts so long and you won’t have to replace it nearly as much as other types of roofs. Along with saving me money, it would also save me a lot of hassle, as I wouldn’t have to contact a roofer and have my roof torn off over and over again.
I am glad you sought to bust so many myths about metal roofing, top among them was the loud sound it would make during rainy seasons and you are right, most of them think of barn covered with tin roof as a reference point.
