Will a metal roof withstand harsh winter conditions, snow, and precipitation? Does metal roof rust? While older roofs made of tin, aluminum, and steel did have rust in the past, today’s metal roofing technology has a variety of ways to eliminate rust and damage over time. Flat metal wall panels and roof panels have a protective coating that will help reduce rust.
Durability of Metal Roofing
Metal roofing remains the number one sustainable choice for construction in the 21st century. Light-weight, wind-resistant, and energy-efficient, there are numerous reasons why owners would choose a metal roof. Today’s metal roofs last over half a century, with little maintenance. The flat metal wall panels and roof panels of today will not succumb to rust.
Rust-resistant roofing involves coating the metal with a protective coating. The coating, often made of zinc, will fight oxidation. Rust will not form. The zinc is applied to steel in a process called galvanization. Galvanized steel lasts for decades without any deterioration or rust. It inhibits any type of corrosion.
Another part of the process is galvalume. Galvalume is made up of zinc, silicon, and aluminum. This makes the roof much more corrosion-resistant. Always have a professional like the experienced team at Eco Insulated Metal Panel install your roof and apply the protective coating. Your roof will only be as good as your contractor. Ask about specific coating options and materials that will lengthen the longevity of your roof.
As you can see, today’s metal roofing does not rust like the roofs a century ago. In fact, when you install a metal roof today, you can enjoy fifty years of security and protection for your home or business.
