Colorful Metal Roofs
When you’re talking about longevity and durability it’s hard to go wrong with metal as a roofing option. Some people aren’t a big fan of metal roofs, however, finding the colors and styles a bit too industrial. They tend to be more expensive than other roof materials as well, though you generally come out ahead in the long run because they last 50 years or more. If the limited choice of drab color options is your main argument against metal, you might browse some of the companies offering different hues of this sturdy material.
This bright and cheerful roof is from Follansbee Steel. The “KlassicKolors Regal Red” was pre-painted Terne II and coated with a zinc-tin alloy to give it its rich red hue. “At the factory, that substrate is coated with your choice of solar-reflective coatings, offered in an historic palette of rich reds, deep blues, greens and grays, earthy beiges, tans and browns.”
While you might have a hard time finding metal roofs in all the colors of a big Crayola box, there are definitely more available than you probably realized.
