Proof that Metal Roofs Keep Going and Going and Going

Longevity. t's one of the benefits - and selling points - of metal roofing. And the proof of that is in the metal roofs that you can find around town. These are coated steel roofs that look as good today as they did the day they were installed - five, ten, twenty years ago and even longer! Here's a little video of a coated steel tile roof more than a decade after installation - and it looks fantastic. No maintenance issues, no problems with the intense sun exposure here in northern Nevada, no issues from our freeze-thaw cycles or high winds. Just a great-looking roof that has done its job from the start and will continue to do so for the indefinite future. Kudos to these homeowners for making such a smart buying decision so long ago!
