Our team at Mountaintop Metal Roofing often hears the question, “Do metal roofs rust?”

Over long periods of time, roof products are subjected to all kinds of weather. You want a system that resists rust and corrosion (or prevents corrosion and prevents rust) regardless of the type of metal panels or paint systems.

Metal is one of the most popular options for homeowners in our area. This type of material offers a wide range of benefits, including energy efficiency, incredible durability, and the ability to withstand a variety of weather conditions.

Available in a variety of colors and styles, it makes it ideal for all sorts of different home styles. Different materials feature different properties, whether it’s rust resistance or anti-corrosive.

Your Roofing Investment

Because these are different from many of the traditional systems that we see in the Northwest, many people wonder if metal is worth the investment.

Galvanized steel can rust. However, with the right protective coating (aluminum, zinc oxide, etc.), a quality metal roof will not form significant rust.

As mentioned, zinc is often used as a coating, and when this is applied, it is what we call galvanization. This acts as a barrier because it is corrosion-resistant. A metal roof with the proper coating will last for years with no signs of rust.

Aluminum won’t rust like steel roofs, and you won’t have to worry about replacing missing or damaged shingles like a traditional composite asphalt system. Metal stands up to the wet weather that keeps our area so beautiful.

With the rain, snow, ice, and sun that we get around the Pacific Northwest, you need a system that can withstand everything that the earth throws at it. Traditional roofing materials simply can’t do the job that a metal roof can. Metal won’t warp or crack, and with our transferable warranty, you can’t go wrong.
