Are you thinking about installing a metal roof or have an old metal roof that you need replaced? Clark's Roofing and Gutters is experienced in installing metal roofing systems on top of existing roof structures or new buildings in Greater Omaha. The installation process typically involves preparing the roof structure, cleaning and fixing any damage, measuring and cutting the roofing panels, and installing the roofing system. With metal roof installation by our professional roofing contractors, we can ensure a long-lasting and quality roof.
We are proud to use Central States brand metal roofing panels. If you're considering installing a new metal roof on your home or commercial building, contact us for a free metal roofing estimate in Omaha, Bellevue, Gretna, or surrounding areas.
Metal roofing in shingle, shake, slate, and tile styles has reinvigorated the metal roofing industry.
Founded in 1988, Central States Manufacturing, Inc. is an employee-owned company, which serves over 2,000 post frame, architectural, commercial, and residential customers in the United States. All Central State metal roofing products come in a variety of options and colors, to give you the any custom look you desire.
We install Panel-Loc Plus® metal panels on residential and commercial buildings. The metal roofing system not only protects steel with an attractive appearance but also features an extra striation on top of the rib to give it superior durability and protection against all types of weather.
An asphalt shingle roof can wear out in 15-20 years when exposed to severe weather like intense sunlight or heavy snowfall that causes ice dams to form along roof eaves. In contrast, metal roofing stands up exceptionally well to weather extremes. It's a safe bet that a newly installed metal roof will last 40 - 60 years.
The installed cost of a metal roof is subject to the same variables that determine any roofing installation: roof size, roof pitch (steep roofs cost more) and roof complexity (the number of valleys, ridges, skylights and dormers). That said, you can expect a metal roof to cost two or three times as much as an asphalt shingle roof. A metal roof typically costs about the same as a tile or cedar shingle roof, but less than a slate roof.
Thanks to the super-durable factory-applied finishes used on metal roofing, today's metal roofs are exceptionally durable and resistant to weather-related damage. Unlike asphalt and wood shingle roofing that holds snow, a metal roof will shed snow, which prevents damaging ice dams from forming. Metal roofing won't degrade in direct sunlight like a wood shingle roof can. Nor will it lose a protective layer of material, which is what happens as asphalt shingle roofing slowly sheds its protective granules. A properly installed metal roof exceeds building code requirements for resistance to uplift in high winds. Although hail damage (denting) can occur in a severe hail storm, dented panels can usually be replaced easily.
Barns and sheds that have metal roofing installed directly over exposed, open framing are responsible for this noisy reputation. However, when metal roofing is installed over a plywood or OSB underlayment (sheathing), the noise produced during a rainstorm is minimized; it's usually no more than what an asphalt shingle roof would sound like in the rain.
About 20 billion pounds of asphalt shingles are dumped into landfills in the U.S. every year. This isn't good for the environment. In contrast, a new metal roof can often be installed directly over an old asphalt shingle roof, and it will last 2-3 times longer. Metal roofing contains recycled steel, and it's easier to recycle than asphalt shingles are.
The variety of metal roofing styles often surprises someone unfamiliar with this roofing category. Although you can install metal roofing manufactured to look like other materials (slate, wood shingles, tile), many home and business owners opt for metal roofing panels manufactured in different parallel profiles that run the length of each panel. As for metal roofing colors, your choices are almost unlimited. Compatible flashing, transition profiles and other roofing elements are also available to give your metal roof a well-crafted appearance.
If you need metal roof repairs or want a metal roof installed on your home or commercial building, make sure to go with a roofing contractor with experience in this type of roofing. A reputable contractor should provide you with a free estimate for roofing work, as well as references based on past metal roofing installations.
The cost of installing a metal roof will depend on the size, slope and style of your roof. Steeper roofs always cost more because of the extra staging that’s required. A complex roof with many valleys and intersecting ridges will be more expensive than a simple gable or shed-roof structure.
