What’s the Deal with Steel Roofs?

Long gone are the days of falling asphalt shingles from heavy snowfall, wind and rain. The latest trend in home improvement is replacing shingles with steel roofing panels that can last up to 50 years or more. While this may seem too good to be true, the experts at Dream Roof will dive into the details of the common questions about steel roofs.

Do Steel Roofs Rust Over Time?

Some homeowners might be worried about the possibility of their roofing steel developing rust over time.

It is true that this is what tends to happen when a roof is exposed to moisture and the elements over time. However, this is not an issue with our roofing.

The steel roofing sheets we use have an anti-rust layer added to them, so there is no need to be concerned about possible leakages as a result of rust damage.

Benefits of Steel Roofs

  1. Durability: With proper maintenance, steel roofs are built to last for 50 years or more.
  2. Weather Resistance: Steel roofs can endure different weather conditions without losing their structural integrity. They can withstand heavy snowfall, wind, rain and hail. 
  3. Low Maintenance: Unlike asphalt shingles, steel roofs require minimal maintenance, reducing long-term costs.
  4. Energy Efficiency: Steel roofing materials are designed to reflect heat, provide insulation and better energy efficiency in the house, overall reducing energy bills.
  5. Fire Resistance: Steel roofs are made from non-combustible materials and can provide added fire protection to your home.
  1. Eco-Friendly: Steel is recyclable, making it an environmentally friendly roofing choice.
  2. Variety of Styles: Steel roofs come in a range of styles and colors to suit your aesthetic preferences.
  3. Increased Home Value: Replacing an outdated roof is one of the top ways to increase property value, and steel roofs can greatly increase the resale value due to their durability and longevity.
  4. Cost-Effective: Because steel roofs are built to last, it’s a one-time investment that will last more than 50 years. With no minimal maintenance required, the investment is well worth the cost of installation.

Steel Roof Designs

You may initially think a steel roof comes in one standard size. Actually, Dream Roof offers six unique designs that are meant to complement various architectural styles as well as your personal preferences. There are also several colour options for each design so that your roof can be as subtle or as bold as you’d like it to be.
