Horch Roofing fabricates standing seam metal roofing panels at our location in Warren, Maine. For several reasons, standing-seam metal roofing is becoming more and more popular in Maine. The term standing-seam describes the upturned edge of one metal panel that connects it to adjacent sections, creating distinctive vertical lines and a trendy historical look.
Metal roofing in Maine is a growing option with many benefits. Metal roofing is durable, fire retardant and almost maintenance-free. They are also energy efficient; metal reflects heat and blocks its transfer into the attic.
Metal roofing is most often made from recycled material and is recyclable once removed. Because it is lightweight, metal roofing can be installed over existing roofs, eliminating the need for labor-intensive disposal of excess material. According to the American Iron and Steel Institute, steel is considered the best material for green buildings because it reduces the use and emittance of chemical substances.
Metal roofing is Low Maintenance
Another advantage of installing a metal roof is that it will not crack, curl, split, rot or lose impact resistance with age, and moreover, it lasts for 50-60 years. Therefore, the maintenance expenses for metal roofs are minimal.
Metal Roofs Have Less Ice Dam Issues
Metal roofs shed snow and ice and help to decrease the occurrences of ice dams, a chronic problem in the Northeast during bad winters.
