Metal Roof Installation
When building your forever home, give it a roof that will last just as long
Once reserved for barn roofs, sheds, and shacks, metal roofing is becoming more common for residential applications. This isn’t corrugated metal roofing, either – there are several types of metal roofs today. A variety of colors allow homeowners to give their homes an immediate facelift.
Aluminum roofs are nearly maintenance-free and built to last a century. Cedar shake profile, slate profile, and standing seam metal roof panels meet or exceed all building codes in the Pacific Northwest and can be used in all environments and weather conditions.
The material is resistant to rust on the coast, strong enough to handle snow and ice in the coast range. Easy to clean all year round, aluminum roofing is lighter than standard asphalt shingles and more durable than slate. Aluminum won’t need all of the maintenance that other materials require, either.
Just so long as it is installed correctly. No matter how attractive the roof is or the material, you could be looking at some long-term problems with a bad install. As soon as water makes its way under the roofing, the problems start. Structural damage (dry rot) and health concerns (mold, mildew) will mean bigger costs down the road.
Standard architectural, composite, or asphalt roofing shingles are relatively straightforward when it comes to installation. Along with cedar shakes and slate, these materials are common in the marketplace and almost every roofer has experience working with these products.

Other Advantages of Aluminum Roofing
The beauty, longevity, and ease of maintenance have already been covered, but aluminum roofing offers other benefits as well. While it keeps the interior of your home protected during the famously rainy months of the Pacific Northwest, it can also save you money during those sunny days of summer.
Aluminum naturally reflects sunlight and saves homeowners up to 30 percent in cooling costs. This means your air conditioner won’t have to expend as much energy to keep the house cool. Staying comfortable in your home while saving money is a welcome addition to any home.
But the material also helps everyone else as well. Our aluminum is made of 95% recycled or recyclable materials, which means less refuse is sent to landfills. In some cases, we’re able to install an aluminum roof over an existing roof, meaning even less waste.
This is known as an overlay or a re-roof. Because of its lightweight nature – 100 square feet of aluminum weighs just 42 pounds, you don’t have to worry about the extra weight. This means an aluminum re-roof is safer for your home than more traditional roofing, such as asphalt shingles.
While it’s a relatively new material for the residential industry, aluminum roofing is a cost-effective way to update your home or for new construction. While it may cost a little more to install than other popular materials, it’s long-lasting makeup means you won’t have to worry about roof repairs for as long as you own your home.
Mountaintop Metal Roofing backs this claim up with a lifetime warranty on all of our products and installation. Not 10 years or 20 years like other products – for as long as you own the home. Even if you sell the home, the warranty is transferable.
