Budget Friendly Steel Roofing Options

A high quality steel roof can meet the needs of some homeowners with realistic expectations for functional and cosmetic life. No steel roofing warranty will provide absolute guarantees about rust. Steel is a ferrous metal and just like a car, exposed surfaces will eventually form rust. To install a metal roof, panels need to be cut to accommodate corners, valleys, pattern changes, skylights etc. These cut edges are typically where rust formation starts. A better quality galvanized steel roof (if cut with shears and not a grinder) will outlast cheaper galvalume products which are more prone to rust streaking and staining.

Due to budgetary constraints, some homeowners opt for steel rather than aluminum roofing options. If you do need to go that route, there are some key things to consider before choosing a steel product.

What to Look for in a Steel Roofing System:

  • Direct-to-Deck Installed

    Panels designed to be installed directly to the roof deck without the need for problematic battens and strapping.

  • 4-Way Interlocking

    Panels that lock on all four sides and guaranteed to withstand 120 mph winds.

  • Concealed Fasteners

    Concealed fasteners are not exposed to the elements and do not require maintenance.

  • PVDF Coatings

    PVDF colour coatings provide maximum durability and fade resistance.

  • G90 Gavanized Steel

    G90 is the standard rating for residential steel products. Anything less should not be used outdoors. Galvanized steel offers more protection from rust than cheaper galvalume products.
