Metal Roofing Styles

  • Exposed Fastener
    • The simpler and most economical form of metal roofing, exposed fastener roofing panels are installed by overlapping large metal panels and fastening them straight into the roof deck of your home. Exposed fastener roofing is the most affordable form of metal roofing and the simplest to install. The term “exposed” is used because the fasteners (usually screws) remain exposed and visible.
  • Stranding Seam
    • A standing seam metal roof is a roof made of adjoining metal panels, locked together and fastened beneath vertical seams. Standing seam roofs are considered a higher-end option, offering a sleek appearance and heavy weather resistance. Standing seam roofs are built to allow panels to expand and contract during temperature changes throughout the year, making them perfect for metal roofing in Milwaukee, Madison, Appleton, or anywhere else in Wisconsin.

Metal Roofing Colors

Color is a big factor to consider when trying to decide the material of your metal roof. Aluminum and Steel roofs are able to be customized and manufactured in a variety of colors, while Copper and Zinc roofs usually are not made in different colors because of their already distinct color and patina.

Aluminum and Steel roofs are offered in a wide range of color options including:

Light Vs. Dark Metal Roofing Colors

A light-colored roof such as tans, whites, and grays absorb less heat and can help reduce energy costs in the hot summer months. While dark-colored roofs like black, navy, and dark greens absorb more heat and can help reduce energy costs in colder winter months. A light-colored roof can make your roof look taller and steeper than it actually is, while a dark-colored roof can make a higher-slope roof look more shallow.

Types of Metal Roofs

Metal roofs can be made with a variety of different metal materials. Our superior metal roof installers install and repair all types of metal roofing including:

Why Choose Metal Roofing for Your Wisconsin Home?

  • Metal Roofs are long lasting. Even the most durable asphalt or wood roofs deteriorate over time due to sun exposure, temperature changes, moisture, and extreme Wisconsin weather. When installed properly, metal roofs can last 2 to 3x longer than non-metal roofs.

  • Metal roofs are low maintenance. Compared to roofs made of other materials, metal roofs require significantly less maintenance. Periodic inspection and maintenance of the roof, gaskets, and sealants will help keep your roof performing optimally with minimal time and effort.

  • Metal roofs are fireproof. The fire protection provided by a metal roof adds an extra layer of protection to your home and can significantly reduce your homeowner insurance premiums. Check with your insurance provider to see exactly how much you could be saving by installing a metal roof.

  • Metal roofs are energy efficient. Metal roofing effectively insulates your home or commercial building, circulating cool or warm air inside rather than allowing it to escape. A well-installed metal roof can reduce energy bills year-round and create a more consistent indoor temperature.

  • Metal roofs are easily installed. In many cases, metal roofs can be installed directly over shingles, saving you time and money by eliminating the need for tear-off and disposal. Whether installing a metal roof over shingles is right for your home depends on your specific roof and on the condition of your roof deck.

Metal Roofing FAQs

How do metal roofs perform in cold temperatures?

Metal roofs are actually very energy efficient. As long as your home is well-insulated and the roof is well-installed, a metal roof can reduce your energy bills and maintain a more stable temperature throughout your home.

Can I walk on a metal roof?

Walking across your metal roof should be safe for your roof, but can be dangerous for you. Most metal roofs are installed to be safe to walk across without risking damage to the roof itself. Metal, however, can become slippery and difficult to walk on even if your roof is not very steep. We recommend calling a licensed, bonded, and insured metal roofing contractor like Infinity when maintenance or inspection needs arise.

Do metal roofs require more maintenance?

Metal roofs require significantly less maintenance than a standard roof with asphalt or wood shingles. Metal roofs are far more resistant to deterioration caused by weather, UV rays and moisture. You can keep your metal roof in great condition by periodically removing debris, keeping gutters clear, and getting a yearly roof inspection.

Do metal roofs attract lightning?

While metal is a conductor, it is no more likely to get struck by lightning than a standard roof with asphalt shingles. If a metal roof is struck by lightning, it is actually significantly more protective of your home because the metal roof will safely disperse the energy and, most importantly, will not catch on fire.

Can you install a metal roof over shingles?

In a majority of cases a metal roof can be installed directly over asphalt shingles. This makes your life significantly easier by removing the need to strip old shingles off, and it prevents your old shingles from sitting in a landfill. An inspection will likely be necessary to ensure your roof deck is strong enough to hold the weight of both your old shingles and your new metal roofing material.

Can you put solar panels on a metal roof?

Yes. Metal Roofs are the most compatible roofing material for solar panel installation because of the increased weight they are able to support. In many cases solar panels can be secured directly onto the seams of metal roofing.
