Long-Lasting, Right for the Coastal Region!
From being a popular roofing material in the early 20th century to being replaced by cheaper materials such as asphalt shingles during the past several decades, to emerging once again as the premier roofing system for your home. There are several reasons that a metal roof is the right choice.
Residental metal roofing is commonly manufactured in two thickness: .029“ and .026“ where .029” is the thinner of the two. Most roofing companies use .029”, CBC uses .026” as its standard product at no extra charge. This provides increased resistance to dings, dents and wind resistance which is critical for coastal applications.
Recent innovations in metal roofing paint systems and coating technology have significantly enhanced performance. The vast majority of today’s metal roofs use a Galvalume coated steel substrate which virtually eliminates worries about rust and corrosion. CBC’s Union 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. CBC’s Union metal roof products offer 40 year paint warranties as standard, and lifetime warranties are also available. These paint systems use cutting edge technology and inorganic pigments to provide the maximum protection against harmful UV rays.
Metal roofing is tough. When it comes to wind and weather resistance, metal roofing stands alone. CBC’s 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.
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 from 25% to 35% on cooling costs.
