Benefits of Metal Roof Installation

Residential metal roofing is an aesthetically unique option that provides incredible insulation and helps your home to stand out among the rest.

A metal roof is a great investment for someone who recently bought their forever home and is in need of a long-lasting, low-maintenance roof. It’s also a great option for those looking to increase the value of their property while also upping the protective quality of their roof.

Metal roofs are:

Metal roof example by Legacy Roofing

Cost-effective: Metal roofs are incredibly durable, lasting up to 50–70 years compared to the 30 year lifespan of shingle roofs. They are able to be made out of a variety of metals (aluminum, copper, tin, zinc, or steel), meaning your roof can be tailored to provide either additional protection from external hazards (like storm winds or heavy snow) or be constructed to improve energy efficiency, reducing utility bills.

Surprisingly quiet: While you might think a metal roof could be unbearably loud during a heavy rainfall or the occasional bout of hail, we install metal roofs over a layer of shingles or a quieting underlayment that can actually make a metal roof better at shielding sound than a shingle roof.

More expensive than asphalt: While they can create a one-of-a-kind look for your home and are more eco-friendly, metal roofs are typically more expensive than standard shingle roofs, due to both the price of the roofing material and increased installation fees.

Metal Roof Installation Process

Measure Roof Area

Before the process begins, Legacy workers need to examine the current roof area and take measurements to determine how much material will be needed and how to approach the project. Measurements of the surface area of the roof are taken, and then we cut the new roofing materials to the appropriate dimensions.

Remove Old Shingles

In order to give your roof the shiny new metal makeover it deserves, we have to strip your roof of its old shingles first. To prepare for the process, we place plywood against the house to protect it from any falling debris. We also place a tarp to make cleanup easier.

We then remove old roofing materials from the building by working our tools under the ridge caps and prying them loose, working our way across the roof as we remove each shingle. After removing old roofing material, we make structural repairs to any damage we find underneath.

Install Protective Layer

To protect the home with insulation and to prevent moisture from entering should a leak happen, an extra layer called an underlayment is installed. The underlayment is made of a felt-like material, and the sections need to overlap in sections of at least four inches. After this is attached to the roof, we are ready to install the eave edges.

Install Roof Eave Trim

Eave trim for metal roofing needs to be installed before the metal roof shingles. Eave trim, also called drip edge, is the metal flashing that covers your building’s side. This is used to divert rainwater away from the roof so that moisture does not build up and cause leaking.

Place Metal Roof Shingles

Our metal roof installers start applying metal roof panels and work our way up, overlapping one panel atop of the other. A caulk or roofing sealant tape may be used to seal the roof. To fasten each panel, we use specialized metal roofing screws. To fit the shape of your roof, we may cut panels as needed.

Install Closure Strips

Closure strips are installed over places where the roof slopes meet. Solid or vented closure strips may be needed, depending on the structure of the roof. Solid closure strips are for the valleys of a roof and anywhere that a weather-tight seal is required. Vented closure strips are used on eaves and ridge caps.

A ridge cap is installed after closure strips are attached to allow airflow through the attic and protect the building from leaks. This is applied to the point of the roof.

Reviews

We just had Legacy put a new roof on our house. The facia needed repair and they did a great job wrapping it with aluminum. The roof was done in two days  (in between rain storms) and looks great. They cleaned up nicely. We decided to go with Legacy for the roof because we had them do a bathroom remodel earlier this year.  Thus included adding a guest bath and completely redoing the master bath.  Both turned out very well despite issues getting materials during the pandemic. The Legacy team has a lot of talented and reliable people.  I would recommend them to anyone needing roofing or remodeling.

We hired Legacy to replace our roof, install new gutters and put siding on our home this year. Jeremy has been great to work with on these projects, and has been very responsive throughout the process. The work done has been outstanding, the materials used high quality, and the crews courteous and knowledgeable. We hardly recognize our home now. Looking forward to more projects in the future with Legacy.

Legacy did a great job installing our new roof. Jeremy was quite patient with us as we tried deciding which shingle color was best for the house. They were in and out in one day and it looks great!

Beth F.
Residential Roofing Customer

Legacy did all of our work due to hail damage. We had our home, barn, and a shed roof replaced all in one day! Also had siding replaced on our barn and new gutters on our home. We were very pleased with all the work done. Dealt with Jeremy, the owner, and he was very responsive each time we reached out to him. All work was done in a timely manner and they worked with us really well with having to deal with insurance for payment. Would recommend them for sure!
