 Metal Roof Systems


Metal roofing has truly come full circle during the past century. From being a popular roofing material in the early 20th century to being replaced by cheaper roofing materials such as asphalt shingles during the past several decades, to emerging once again as the premier roofing system for commercial buildings and homes. There are several trends and benefits that are fueling the growth.

The first benefit of metal roofing is its enhanced performance caused by recent innovations in metal roofing paint systems and coating technology. The vast majority of today’s metal roofs use a Galvalume coated steel substrate which virtually eliminates worries about rust and corrosion. Galvalume steel carries a limited 30 year warranty against rust and corrosion, the best in the industry. And just as important, paint systems now have outstanding resistance to fading, chalking, and cracking under the most stringent conditions.  These paint systems use cutting edge technology and inorganic pigments to provide the maximum protection against harmful UV rays.

The second metal roofing benefit is that metal roofing is very tough. When it comes to wind and weather resistance, metal roofing stands alone. Metal roofing meets the toughest wind, fire, and impact codes in the country. Your metal roof will probably outlast you. Most metal roofs last 3 to 4 times longer than an asphalt shingle roof.

The third benefit of metal roofing is that there is a genuine concern in helping to maintain and improve the environment for future generations. In this regard, metal roofing meets the criteria of recycled content, recyclability, and energy efficiency. Metal roofing is one of the most energy efficient roofing systems available and tests have shown that it can save you up to 40% on cooling costs.

In addition, metal roofing is not asphalt based like shingles, which means its production doesn’t continue to fuel our country’s biggest addiction… oil.


Residential and Commercial Metal Roofing Systems

TriCounty offers both exposed fastener and concealed fastener metal roofing systems for residential, commercial, and post-frame roofing applications.

Exposed fastener metal roofing systems use screw fastener system that are visible on the exterior of the metal roof surface after installation. These exposed fastener metal roofing systems are economical, have been in service for decades, and are extremely popular in a wide variety of metal roofing applications.

In concealed fastener metal roofing systems, the screws are completely concealed and protected by the steel roof surface. This metal roofing system gives standing seam panels very clean, aesthetically pleasing lines. The metal roofing system also exhibits the very best in weather resistance and durability since the metal roof fastener systems are not exposed to the outside elements. We offer the three primary types of standing seam metal roofing systems:  screw flange, snap lock, and mechanically seamed. Each of these metal roofing system designs uses a slightly different method to secure the panel to the metal roof.


Benefits of Metal Roofing:

  • Beautiful
  • Durable, long lasting
  • Fire and high wind resistant
  • Reduced heating and cooling costs - up to 40%!
  • Federal tax credit for energy efficient improvements
  • Lightweight and quiet steel roofing
  • Recyclable


Common Questions about Metal Roofs

Are metal roofs noisy?

This is one of the biggest misconceptions about residential metal roofing. People who've experienced barns or other structures where the metal roofing is visible from the interior can recall the "pinging" noise that rain makes when it hits the barn's metal roof. In a barn metal roofing is installed without a solid roof deck, so there is no dampening effect when something contacts the barn's metal roof.  In residential applications, metal roofing is installed on a solid plywood deck, just like roofing shingles. When installed in this manner, metal roofing is no noisier than other roof materials.

Will a metal roof rust?

Premium metal roofing products utilize high strength Metal Construction Association (MCA) certified steel that’s protected by an aluminum, zinc, and silicon anti-corrosion coating, commercially known as Galvalume®. The corrosion resistance of our steel roof is so outstanding, even our unpainted metal roof panels carry a 30 year limited warranty. We use this same high performance steel with our 40 Year and Lifetime series paint systems, giving you the highest level of corrosion resistant roofing you can get in the roofing industry.

Beware of metal roofing that is not Metal Construction Association certified as these metal roofs could be constructed with inferior steel and paint systems. Many metal roofing contractors and companies will advertise a paint warranty, but the underlying metal will not be warranted against corrosion. Be sure to ask about base metal warranties before you buy.

Does a metal roof attract lightning?

A metal roof has no greater chance of being hit by lightning than any other type of roof. Lightning typical targets the highest point in a given area, regardless of material. In the event that your roof is struck by lightning, a metal roof can actually help prevent damage by dissipating the electrical charge. Also, a metal roof is non-combustible.

How much do metal roofs cost?

As with most roofing cost and pricing options, installation is a large percentage of the total roof cost, and this metal roofing cost varies widely depending on the complexity of your metal roof. Depending on the metal roofing purchased and installation, the total installed cost could vary from $125 to $1100 per square. A square is equal to 100 square feet and is the measurement that is used to determine the size of your roof coverage area for quoting metal roofing prices. Since metal is a premium upgrade, you can expect metal roofs to cost more up-front than a quality asphalt shingle roof. However, over the life of the roof, metal can save you over 60% in total installation and maintenance costs.

Will I have to remove my existing roof?

Because metal roofing is so lightweight relative to its strength, metal roofs can usually be installed over existing roof materials. It’s very common for metal roofs to be installed directly on top of asphalt shingles. This saves on labor costs and disposal cost for stripping the old roof, not to mention reducing landfill waste. Local building codes and the condition of your current roof’s substructure will ultimately determine if you can install your metal roof in this manner.

What does the “29, 26, and 24 gauge” metal roofing mean?

The metal roofing gauge is a measurement of the thickness of the metal, but it's important to remember that the metal increases in thickness as the gauge numbers decrease. Tri-County offers several gauge options for metal roofing. Listed in order from thinnest to thickest, they are Utility, Econ 29, 29, 26, and 24 gauge. It's important to note that 29 gauge metal roofing is the thinnest metal recommended for residential applications. Our heavy duty 24 gauge metal roofing is recommended for those areas with severe weather, high winds, or hail.
