Metal roof systems designed for long term residential use will have panels that interlock on all 4 sides. Interlocking panels provide added wind protection against high speed Northeastern winds in winter. Some metal roofing products will actually guarantee to perform up to 120 m.p.h. winds – giving added peace of mind when the occasional tropical storm blows in from the south.
Metal Roofs Guaranteed at Any Proximity to Ocean
Steel roofs can last a lot longer than asphalt in the Maritimes, but did you know a modern aluminum roof can last a lifetime and maintain its beauty at any proximity to the ocean? Modern aluminum roofs with durable PVDF coatings can actually increase residential resale values and provide an excellent return on investment if the right product is chosen. Four-way interlocking metal shingle designs, installed directly to the roof deck, resist high speed winds and allow for natural thermal movement of the roof. A product that uses Kynar500® or Hylar5000® PVDF colour coatings can actually be guaranteed never to crack, chip, peel or flake and can also come with long lasting guarantees against chalking and fading.
