Exceptional Metal Roofing Repairs
No matter what kind of roof you have, metal or otherwise, it can develop issues over time. The main problem with metal roofs (aside from installation) is corrosion. If a tiny bit of the panel's coating becomes damaged or begins to erode, moisture can seep in and cause a larger area of the roof to deteriorate. In extreme cases — like when there's active leaking — this causes damage to whatever is below your roof. More often, the smaller corrosion areas cause unsightly damage that can be a real bummer when you're trying to get your house ready to sell. Our goal at Magic Home Services is to give you the best quality metal roofing repairs in Pennsylvania. Always hire an experienced, trusted contractor: The biggest danger with getting a low-cost repair done on your roof is hiring some inexperienced person willing to do the job incredibly cheaply. When it comes time for a full replacement, they don't have all skills and you'll end up paying for the same work twice.
Types Of Metal Roofs
There are two main types of metal roofing: standing seam and corrugated. Standing seam is the most popular option for residential purposes, and it comes in a few different styles — with the most common styles being rolled/flat seam and flash-butt seams. There are also mechanically fastened options for specific applications such as commercial or industrial roofs that require snow shedding or hurricane resistance. Corrugated metal is not a very common choice for residential properties but can be used to create interesting architectural features like peaked roofs on sheds, garages or barns. All types of metal roofing have some level of recycling value if they're removed at the end of their useful life; however, this really depends on whether or not there's demand for the recycled material and how much of it is available. Corrugated metal roofing is typically made from flat sheets of steel that are formed into a pattern. Corrugated roofs usually have high-profile ridges, which give them a distinctive look and make them good for areas with high winds or snow loads — although they're not the best choice if you live in an area where hail damage is possible (as the corrugation provides little protection against impact).
Benefits Of A Metal Roof
Metal roofing is an affordable way to protect your investment when it comes to the long term value of a home. It's also easy to install, requires little maintenance, comes in many attractive styles and colors and can be used in every region of the country. The best news is – it never needs to be painted.Metal roofs won't ever need to be repainted as they should last for decades without chipping, peeling or cracking and will never flake like other types of shingles. This means lower ongoing maintenance costs with no worries about changing out old paint every few years. Metal roofs also protect underlying material from moisture penetration, corroding wood often found under asphalt shingles in heavy rain areas. Painted roofs must be cleaned by pressure washing once approximately every three years to prevent dirt accumulation. Metal, on the other hand, requires no pressure washing and can last for decades without exposure to harsh environmental elements or moisture. Another benefit of metal roofing is its wind resistance.

Common Metal Roofing Myths
Metal roofing is expensive. Yes, but only at first. Because metal lasts so long, the long-term cost of ownership is actually lower than asphalt shingles. If you buy a gorgeous metal roof that can last 40 years or more, you will spend much less over those years on maintenance and replacement compared to an asphalt shingle roof that needs replacing every 15 to 20 years. Always calculate price by "lifetime cost" not just initial cost! Metal roofs rust into holes. No it doesn't - if properly protected with good surface preparation before installation (and paint afterwards). The misconception comes from the fact that some sheet manufacturers use galvanized steel for their exterior/exterior coils which are susceptible to perforation when used in coastal areas. Not all manufacturers use galvanized steel, or cheaper alternatives for their coils and some have coated them with zinc to prevent rusting. Check the specifications on any sheet you may be considering before making a decision. Metal roofing has sharp edges. This is simply not true - if properly installed the sheets overlap creating a "skip" edge which is actually quite rounded over. It's no sharper than an asphalt shingle!

Metal Roof installation
Metal roofs are hard to install. If you've ever seen one being installed, it's actually quite mesmerizing watching those guys work up there on a steep roof in the heat of summer or in bitter cold winter conditions! You wouldn't want to do it but they make it look easy - and as long as your metal sheets fit properly when installed they will be just that: easy! Metal roofs leak. Well, yes and no. Some do, some don't. It depends on whether the sheet is properly lapped (see above) sealed with an appropriate sealing compound and maintained after installation with re-coating every 4-5 years. Asphalt shingles don't last 60 years either.. They need replacing at least every 15 years for most houses. If you need to replace asphalt shingles every 15-20 years, why not save a lot of money and headache by going metal? Metal roofs attract lightning! This is true - but so do all other roof types. The installation of a lightning rod is required by law if your house is being used as a place of business or shelter for livestock (which almost always means horses). So there's no getting around it if the law says you have to have one installed on your property. There are also styrofoam or rubber covers that go over the sheets which will help protect them from damage in case of a direct hit .
Metal roofs have proven to be an excellent option for homes or commercial buildings with a budget that won't allow the use of more expensive materials. Metal roofs offer tremendous benefits over other materials in their durability, longevity and energy efficiency. No matter which type of metal roofing is used, it will be able to withstand the elements for years to come. Metal roofs are great insulators and help reduce heating costs in winter, HVAC system running more efficiently and cooler year round with less interior temperature fluctuations. With proper maintenance they will last upwards of 50 years or longer vs asphalt shingle 20-30 where vegetation shorts due to conductivity of metal versus asphalt shingles resistance so most property owners need not worry about needing to re-roof again for generations! (we have seen some homes that were installed in 1950s still standing on original roof even though it hasn't been maintained at all!) They just don't rot or deteriorate the way shingles do. Metal roofs can be installed over existing shingle roof so you keep using your existing siding w/o having to completely demolish it and rebuild! So if you are in good financial standing and new home in 15-20 years, your metal roof will still be with you for a long time! Metal roofs are eco-friendly, high recycled content (65% pure copper composition), environmentally safe and can provide you an extremely attractive home without spending $50k to rebuild.
