Metal roofs are built to withstand Maine’s high winds

Strong winds and a beautifully rugged coast have earned Maine the reputation for having some of the best sailing conditions in the world. But these same winds can wreak havoc on your home’s roof during our intense, wind-laden rain and snow storms. Having a standing seam metal roof professionally installed helps to ensure a homeowner’s peace of mind. A metal roof can withstand the high winds and punishing elements associated with Maine storms.
Horch Roofing builds each standing-seam metal roof to a homes exact specifications with crews working out of our Warren and South Portland offices. As you travel around the state, you have probably noticed the increasing number of metal roofs from Kittery to Castine. It’s for good reason – a metal roof provides a multitude of benefits including:



⦁    A lifespan of 50 to 60 years
⦁    Will not crack, curl, split or rot
⦁    Maintains impact resistance over time
⦁    Has low maintenance, leading to low upkeep expenses
⦁    Sheds snow and ice, decreasing snow and ice dam occurrence
⦁    Provides energy efficiency by reflecting heat and blocking transfer into attics
⦁    Provides a multitude of environmental benefits
⦁    Comes in a wide array of colors

Horch Roofing’s metal roofing department has grown year after year. In an effort to make this technology cost-effective, we have invested in machinery that allows us to create custom roofing for each homeowner. We have two to three dedicated metal roofing crews with state of the art machines that custom build each roof to a homes exact specifications. The term “standing-seam” describes the upturned edge of one metal panel as it connects to adjacent sections. This creates distinctive vertical lines and provides a historic aesthetic.

When it comes to standing up to high winds, metal and copper roofs have many advantages over shingles in high-wind areas. One of the reasons metal is so stable in high wind is that it relies totally on mechanical attachment, versus other materials such as an adhesive that can break down over time. Metal comes in long sheets that cover the entire area between ridgeline and eaves, minimizing the opportunity for wind to penetrate – as it can with asphalt shingles.
Metal roofing is available in many colors. So, whether you have an old barn, a traditional New Englander home, a modern coastal Cape or virtually any other style home, the diverse options are sure to offer just the right color to complement your home style. Click here to view our metal roofing gallery.
