Skyline Contractors inspects, repairs, and installs all major types of metal roofing, including aluminum, copper, corrugated metal, standing seam metal, metal tile, metal slate, tin and steel roofs.
Metal roofs are common in Colorado because they are simple, durable, energy efficient, and easy to maintain. You need a solid roof in Colorado to withstand hail, heavy rain, snow, and high winds.
All in all, metal roofing might be your best bet. They not only look great, but are proven to prevent leaks and last through all weather, even snow and hail.
Fun fact for residential roofing: Did you know that a metal roof can increase your home’s value by 1-6%, and that you can recoup up to 85% of your metal roof’s cost?
When Colorado experiences hail storms, rest assured that a metal roof is less likely to withstand major damage. Hail, even in its largest forms, are mostly likely to only dent a metal roof. The stronger the metal, the more durable and weather proof it is likely to be.
Concerning longevity, a metal roof should last from 50 to over 100 years, depending on the metal type. For instance, aluminum and steel shingles are known to last upwards of 50 years, whereas your more expensive copper or zinc roofs can last over 100 years. This is a significant advantage of metal roofs, as your typical asphalt shingles are known to need replacement and repairs at least every 12 to 17 years.
The most frequent type of metal roof is steel. It is less expensive to make and install, and coupled with its strength and durability, make it a popular roofing material for Colorado.
Aluminum is the second most popular roofing material, as its light weight and durability are great, and there is no need to continue coating an aluminum roof.
Copper and zinc roofs are by far the most durable, but are typically cost prohibitive for most businesses and home owners.
When it comes to roof coating, steel roofs often require semi-frequent re-coating to prevent corrosion. However, galavanized and galvalume roofs come pre-coated, and often do not require any further coating. However, it is best to inquire from our professional team to see what, if any, coatings are necessary on your roof.

The typical asphalt roof can installed by residential homeowners or business owners. They are relatively simple to place, though having a professional roofer do it for you is that safest.
But when it comes to metal roofing, please do not attempt to install it yourself. If a metal roof is installed improperly, it can cause leaks and long-term wear and tear, or in the worst cases require a completely new installation.
