Get The Look You Want and Make It Last With Steel
Many home owners would love to have a specialty roofing product installed, such as cedar shingles, because they love the way it looks. However, the cost is much more, it doesn't last as long, and you have to constantly maintain it by sealing the roof every couple years.
If this describes you, you may be interested in the many styles and colors available with steel roofing and shingles.
For example, Metro Steel Shakes are a great steel alternative to cedar shingles because it combines the great look of cedar with the durability and low maintenance of steel. Another benefit with Metro is the 50 year warranty that is transferable if you sell your house.Rock & Tait is experienced with installing all types of Metro and Panel Loc steel shingles and roofing.

Frequent Steel & Metal Roofing Questions
How does the cost of a metal roof cost compare to other roofs?
Metal roofs usually cost more than cheaper fiberglass/asphalt shingles initially, but steel roofs offer many long term benefits.
If you opt for an asphalt shingle with a weak warranty, you will save up front. But you will have to pay for the project over and over again, about every 10 to 15 years. With steel roofing, you won't have any worries for 50 years!
Steel roofing is also lower maintenance and energy efficient.
Is a steel roof noisy when it rains?
No, the noise levels on a steel roof are similar to other roofing products such as fiberglass/asphalt or wood shingles.
Can I walk on a steel roof?
Yes. Always remember to be careful walking on any roof.
Can a steel roof be damaged by hail?
Steel roofs are very tough and highly resistant to hail damage, much more so than asphalt/fiberglass shingles.
Many steel roofing products have the highest impact resistance and hail rating granted by the insurance commissions in the hail belt regions of the U.S.
Is a steel roof resistant to wind damage?
All steel roofing products are very wind resistant. Many styles have been tested to withstand hurricane force winds; and wind warranties can be as high as 120mph.
Is a steel roof fire safe?
A steel roof is the most fire safe roof. It is classified as a noncombustible roofing material with a Class "A" rating - the highest rating given.
