Metal Roofs Find Home in Residential Market

More than seven million homeowners in North America must replace their worn-out asphalt roofs each year. About 10 percent choose metal roofs, a number that is expected to climb to 20 percent by 2020, forecasts the National Coil Coaters Association in Cleveland.

Nearly 700,000 tons of metal is prepainted and formed into residential roofing each year because of its durability and environmental benefits, says NCCA, which represents more than 100 suppliers of coil coated products.

Metal roofs can be formed and prepainted to simulate common residential roofing materials, such as asphalt shingles, cedar shake, tile or even slate. Advancements in coil coating technology now make it possible for prepainted metal roofs to feature many different linear and multi-dimensional looks to complement other homes in the neighborhood. "Cool" infrared pigment technology reflects heat, helping to reduce energy needs. More homeowners are choosing metal roofs because they are attractive, lightweight, durable and fire-resistant, though they generally cost more than conventional roofing materials.
