Metal Roofing. A Great Choice For Commercial Or Residential Applications

Metal Roofing Enid Oklahoma

Metal roofing is a great way to go if you’re looking for a good-looking, durable roof to survive the extreme weather in Enid, Ok

If there is a down-side to going with metal, it would be that there are not quite as many color variations to choose from (as you’ll find in asphalt). However, colors do vary with each metal roof manufacturer. Generally speaking, you’ll find a color to blend well with your existing brick or siding. So, don’t let the color limitation discourage you too much. The durability and longevity of this type of roof covering a huge factor to consider.

What Is The Best Gauge For A Metal Roof?

The higher the gauge, the thinner the metal! For example, a 26 gauge metal roof is thicker than 29 gauge. Occasionally we are asked if a heavier gauged roof will help to prevent hail damage. Simply put, no. We’ve found even the heaviest of metal roof coverings damaged from wind and/or hail. The structural integrity remains, but the aesthetics of a dented metal roof covering are not good.

On that note, be sure to get the best insurance coverage when it comes to your metal roof. Any exclusions for aesthetic damage may be an issue in the future, should you need to recover for hail damage.

Residential Recommendation: 29 gauge is the minimum and 26 is suitable for most applications. However, if you want a higher defense against wind and hail damage, consider going with 24 gauge.

Things to look for in a metal roof

What should you look for in a metal roof? Here are a few things to consider:

  • The Best Manufacturers: Look for the ones who offer a large variety of colors to choose from, and a resin-based finish will last for years, and the colors won’t fade or leave streaks. Ask us more about your options.
  • “Self-Cleaning” Valleys: Tree leaves, pine needles, seed pods, ice and snow, will find any way imaginable to get lodged in the valley of most conventional roofing materials. A lot of metal roofing installers will leave “closed” valleys — failing to divert water from the roof. Backed up water dams on your roof will eventually lead to leaks! A self-cleaning valley system will prevent these problems and quickly while shedding water and debris from your roof.
  • Premium Certified Products:  The Metal Construction Association developed a Quality Certification Program. This program rewards certain manufactures of metal roofing for meeting their high standards of quality. Without the best materials, it’s nearly impossible to guarantee the best long-lasting results.
  • Special Flashings: The products we install on your roof have a large array of special flashings to accommodate many variables. Some valleys, chimneys, skylights and special gables will require a unique application — not several large tubes of sealant!
  • Warranty: Be sure to ask about which metal roofing warranties are available to you when you decide upon your product. We guarantee the roof installation, but we need to take a close look at what the manufacturer of the product guarantees. We only use products which are the perfect fit for the application… always.
  • Ventilation: Proper attic ventilation is imperative for any roof covering to function and last as guaranteed. A warranty may be voided if ventilation is not adequate. Besides, proper ventilation will keep your home cooler in the hot Oklahoma summers, and prevent ice dams in the blustery winters.

If you choose Restoration Roofing, we’ll check your home for proper ventilation when we come to inspect your roof. Call for a free roof inspection today (580) 324-3639.

When it comes to metal roofing, there are more variations than you may have known. You wouldn’t want to necessarily use a high-gloss colored roof for your barns or outbuildings, but you would want to use corrugated material of a heavy-gauge material. Call us for specifications and help in making the right decision for your next roof.
