Residential Metal Roofing Benefits
Residential metal roofing has a lot of benefits for a homeowner to consider. Yes, metal roofing looks great but it also gets 5 Stars for:
Hail. Metal typically has a hail rating of Class 4. This means typical hail will not damage the metal roof as it can to traditional asphalt shingle.
Snow. Metal tends to slough off snow better than other materials.
Fire. Metal doesn’t burn. If you are in a fire-prone area, a metal roof is a good first line of defense from floating embers.
Durability. Metal roofing lasts for decades.
These are just a few benefits that are tangible. In fact, aesthetically and architecturally, residential metal roofing is elegant and strong.

If you look around at new construction going up in the Denver area, you will see a lot of metal roofing integration. This exterior metal high-end industrial look is not too new. Chipotle Mexican Grill was an innovator many years ago in the use of high-end metal inside their stores. They mixed corrugated metal cut-outs of Aztec figures, along with metal panels at the counter areas – along with metal tables. They took the metal industrial look and made it sleek and high-end.
Metal Roofing in Denver
The Highlands area in north Denver is a great place to cruise around for metal roofing ideas. Here you will find an abundance of new buildings with metal roof integrations and retrofit buildings with metal roofing. This part of town has grown so much over the past 10 years or so. Real estate values have skyrocketed and investors are pouring money into development. Each
building owner wants their structure to be unique, to be attractive, and stand the test of time. This could be a reason metal roofing is being used so much.
Mountain homes and buildings have long used metal as a primary roofing source. Originally, metal roofing was installed for practical purposes. It was durable for harsh weather, it was relatively cheap, it works great at handling snow loads and it was easy to maintain. But as buildings and mountain homes have improved, metal roofing has improved as well. A metal roof is now the standard for most new construction.
Other Metal Roofing Ideas
When someone says metal roofing, most people think of a mountain cabin or farm building that has standing seam metal roofing installed. This is the classic metal roof that can come in several colors like red and green most notably. But there are many other options to consider.
Metal roofing options include Stone Coated Steel metal roofing. This material is pressed metal designed to look like shake roofing or tile roofing. The shape is pressed into the metal and then it gets coated with various colors of stone and resin. This manufacturing process has been in existence since the early 1900s but has continued to be improved. It is a very popular choice still today. It gives a high-end finish look. It is very durable. It looks like shake but it is not wood.
