METAL ROOF

History
Asphalt shingle roofs last about 15 years on average. This is usually the time a disgruntled homeowners are saying they purchased a 30- or 40-year shingle and it's failed. They add, "It must have been a bad batch of shingles." Sure it was.
Asphalt roofs were introduced at the turn of the turn of the century (about 1901) as an alternative to more expensive slate and woods roofs. It was a much cheaper roof that the average homeowner could afford.
The installation was also much easier. It did not require the skill necessary to install a slate or cedar shake roof. One would have to agree that the asphalt shingle companies were successful in their marketing efforts; but that is changing.
Homeowners increasingly opt for longer-lasting Metal Roofing Systems over traditional asphalt shingles:
  • Metal roofing for the residential market has doubled in the last four years with a market share approaching 16% nationally in 2018. That's up from about 2-3% in 1999.
  • Metal roofs are the fastest growing segment for residential replacement roofs in the country.
  • More and more builders and architects are specifying standing seam metal roofs and shingle metal roofs in new home construction.

Our materials are not susceptible to heat like regular metals

Metal Tile panels Eco Friendly Roofing System

Residential metal roofing is one of the fastest growing segments of home improvement - more than quadrupling its market share over the past decade. The benefits offered by today’s metal roofs allow home builders and homeowners to upgrade their homes with products of lasting value. While other roofs quickly diminish in value as they age, metal roofs provide the long list of benefits.

Why Eco Friendly Roofing System are great for builders?

  • Inexpensive, high quality material - the most affordable metal panels
  • Lower framing cost - due to metal roof low weight, houses can be designed with lighter structural material
  • Short production time - 3-5 days lead time
  • Ease of Installation - panels pre-cut to slope length
  • Low installation cost - no battens, quick installation over plywood
  • No storage cost - roofs delivered directly to job sites
  • Eco-friendly and energy efficient roof - 91% of new homeowners look for an energy-efficient home

Recent reports show that hailstorm costs are increasing in the United States, especially in CO, TX, and the Midwest.

To protect homes from damage and the increasing threat of hailstorms, experts say that choosing more resilient materials is essential. In studies conducted by the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety (IBHS), while all roof types can sustain some cosmetic damage depending on hailstorm severity, metal roofing performed best and was mush less likely to puncture as compared to asphalt and tiles, withstanding even golf ball-sized hail stones without compromising performance.

Metal roofing myths

It will increase the likelihood of a lightning strike
Metal conducts electricity, but electricity is not drawn to it.
Metal roofs are noisy in the rain
Not so. They may even be quieter than other roofs types.
You cannot walk on a metal roof
You can, but you have to know how to do it wothout causing damage. Call Eco Friendly Roofing System, Co. for more information.
Metal roofs are susceptible to damage by hall
While extremely large hailstones can dent a metal roof, normal hailstorms will not. With Eco Friendly Roofing System roofs, denting is barely visible.
A metal roof will make your house colder in winter.
Actually, a metal roof has no effect on the temperature of the typical vented attic in winter. It's the insulation under (or on top of) the floor of your attic that keeps you warm.

How loud are typical sounds

Isn't a metal roof noisy? It is one of the most frequently asked questions about metal roofing. The theory that a metal roof is "noisy" stems from the memory of a barn, or a patio awning, where there is nothing between an individual and the roof, except air.

Research shows that metal roofing is no more or less noisy than any other type of roofing material.
  • The human ear does not distinguish variations in sound until the sound pressure level has been increased by 8 dB.
  • The sound differential between shingle and metal was only 6 dB.
  • A metal roof installed over open framing will register a louder sound than panels that are installed over a solid roof deck.
  • How loud are typical sounds

    Thermal expansion and contraction is a great concern with metal roofing system. Question is if this thermal movement can pull out screws, elongate holes in Eco Friendly Roofing System panels, and cause our panels to shift or bend.

    Well, thermal expansion is the tendency of matter to change in volume in response to a change in temperature. When a substance is heated, its particles begin moving more and thus usually maintain a greater average separation. Materials which contract with increasing temperature are rare; this effect is limited in size, and only occurs within limited temperature ranges.

    Assuming, the distance between fasteners on the Eco Friendly Roofing System panels is ~15", the steel will expand ~.569 micro-inches (.000000569 inch) every 15" (from 32 degrees to 212 degrees Fahrenheit)

    Assuming the width of the Eco Friendly Roofing System panels is ~43", the width of the steel will expand ~ 1.634 micro-inches (.000001634 inch) in 43" (from 32 degrees to 212 degrees Fahrenheit)

    Assuming the maximum length of the Eco Friendly Roofing System panel is 20 feet, the length of the panel will expand ~ 9.120 micro-inches (.00000912 inch) in 480" (from 32 degrees to 2012 degrees Fahrenheit)

    Thermal expansion for Eco Friendly Roofing System metal roofing panels is insignificant.

    Moreover, because of its profile, our panels use the "accordion effect" which occurs when fluctuations in the motion of a particles causes disruptions in the flow of elements following it. This effect generally decreases the expansion and contraction of the system in which it occurs.

    Accordion effect can leave the fasteners securely in place while still allowing the metal to move a bit.

    Metal Roofing and Lightning

    The probabilities of a strike to a metal roofed structure are no more or less than any other kind of structure.

    The threats of a strike are affected by the construction materials used for both framing and roof coverings. If these materials are (electrically) conductive, the threat of fire and explosion are both reduced. They will not con-tribute a fuel source to any fire resulting from a lightning strike.

    Because metal roofing is both an electrical conductor and a noncombustible material, the risks associated with its use and behavior during a lightning event makes it the most desirable construction material available.

    The probability of a strike has to do with height and size of the structure, rather than its construction materials.

    The probability of a lightning strike is determined by a number of factors:

    • The topography in the area of the subject facility. Probability of a strike is higher if the project is located on a mountain top of hill, as opposed to a field.
    • Size and height of the subject structure. A tall building or one covering more ground area is more likely to be struck than a short or small building. A tall slender structure (such as a steeple or lighthouse) is also a more likely candidate for a strike.
    • Relative location of the subject structure with respect to nearby larger and taller structure in proximity to a small, short - building will tend to further reduce the likelihood of a strike to she small building.
    • Frequency and severity of thunderstorm activity in the geographic area of the project.
