Another year in the history books, and metal roofing remains one of the very best roof materials that a building owner can choose. Since I first began working with metal roof materials back when Reagan was early in his first term, metal roofing has maintained its position at the top rung of roofing options, with its price and performance at the premium end of the spectrum. There have been many, many roofing products that have come and gone in the last few decades, but metal roofing just keeps chugging along at the front of the quality line.
Metal Roofing During 2020
This year, there was nothing particularly of note that was new in the metal roofing industry. A few more styles, some more colors and print patterns, and the same problems encountered by the entire construction industry - a shortage of competent roof installers. Regardless of the type of roof you’re looking to install, and especially if it’s metal, you’ll find that good roofers are hard to find, and the prices for their services have risen significantly.
Still, once the right installer is found, when a home or building owner is shopping for the lightest, more fire and wind-resistant, strongest, most beautiful, and longest-lasting roofing they can find, metal (in all its diverse forms) will be at the top of the list once more. I’m sure I will write another version of this same blog this time next year.
Merry Christmas from everyone here at Metal Roof Network. If you're planning a roofing project in the new year, we'd love to be involved. Contact us directly for answers to all of your metal roofing questions.
