Metal Roof Installation, Repair & Replacement

Metal roofs have become increasingly popular in Georgia over the years due to their numerous benefits and suitability for the climate. Of course, all roofs come with their unique advantages and drawbacks. We’ll go over some things to consider later. Whether you have an existing metal roof installation that needs maintenance or repair, or you want to upgrade with a metal roof replacement, you can call Milledge Roofing Company to hire a uniformed roofer. Our courteous representatives are on standby to answer any questions or address any concerns you may have.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Metal Roofing

While asphalt shingles remain the most common roofing material nationwide, the popularity of metal roofs in Georgia is growing as more homeowners recognize their benefits. Still, it’s important to consider the drawbacks as well. Here are some things to contemplate:

  • Cost: Metal roofing tends to have a higher upfront cost compared to other roofing materials like asphalt shingles, but it’s important to note the long-term cost savings thanks to its energy efficiency and durability.
  • Durability: Metal roofs are known for their exceptional resistance against weather elements, including high winds, heavy rains, and hailstorms. While metal roofs are generally durable, extreme impacts can cause cosmetic damage. Metal roofs also have a high level of fire resistance.
  • Energy Efficiency: Metal roofs have reflective properties that help reduce heat absorption, keeping homes cooler and reducing the load on air conditioning systems.
  • Longevity: With proper installation and maintenance, metal roofs can last 40 to 70 years – significantly higher than alternatives like asphalt shingles which are limited to around 25 years.
  • Maintenance: Metal roofs are generally low maintenance. They require occasional inspections and maintenance, particularly in areas such as flashing, sealants, and fasteners.
  • Safety: Metal roofs offer great protection from the elements, and they are non-combustible, offering a high level of fire resistance. The drawback is its limited walkability due to a smooth and slippery surface.

When to Repair the Metal Roof

While metal roofs are durable and long-lasting, they still may require occasional repairs due to factors like weather conditions, aging, and accidental damage. Common repairs to be mindful of include:

  • Fixing leaks
  • Addressing rust or corrosion
  • Fixing dents or punctures
  • Replacing damaged panels
  • Tightening loosened fasteners

It’s important to note metal roofs are especially dangerous to work on because of their smooth and slippery surface. Metal roof repair is best left to experienced roofing professionals.

My wife and I just bought a house and noticed that the roof needed to be fixed. Everyone that I talked to recommended this company and now I can see why. Mike is super friendly, quick to respond, and the quality of work is amazing! He and his team came out, quoted us, and had the new roof on within the week. We are very pleased with him and recommend them to anyone with roofing needs!

They did a great job on our roof and the process was painless. Seth cash was very polite and helpful while helping me deal with my insurance claim and was always quick to respond when I had any questions. The roofers did a perfect job and there was no trash left or any damage to my plants. I would highly recommend them!

We could not have asked for a better experience!  Our home is over 20 years old and we had been hesitant in getting the roof looked at for a while. We recently had a leak, that ended up having nothing to do with the roof. Milledge Roofing came out & not only helped clean up and check out our leak, but also advised us to have the roof checked for hail damage, due to a recent storm. Mike went out of his way to meet with the insurance inspector & made the entire process completely seamless. He did everything from answering questions to advising on different shingles & colors. We had a brand new roof and gutters within days and made what had seemed like a huge chore, absolutely painless. I cannot say enough wonderful things about the owners and the company!
