4 Simple Tips For Caring For Metal Roof

Like any roofing type, metal roofs require regular care and maintenance in order to stay in top shape. Not only that, but the regular maintenance can pay off in the long run once the metal roof lasts longer than its expected lifespan. Regular maintenance can help you save money on roof replacement or repairs while the opposite can end up costing you a lot. With that said, it’s vital that you remain vigilant and regularly care for your roof.


In addition to standard shingle roofing, Punum Roofing of Houston, Inc. also installs metal roofs for residential customers in the Greater Houston area. Metal roofing is an increasingly popular roofing material. Advantages to metal roof replacement include:

  • Energy savings. Metal reflects heat and does not trap it in the house, making your home more energy-efficient.
  • Lightweight. Metal panels are lightweight and do not stress the structure or foundation of the house.
  • Wide range of colors. Metal materials come in 12-13 standard colors.
  • Curb appeal. Metal roofing gives your home a modern, luxurious look.
  • Variety. Metal can be manufactured to resemble traditional shingles, wood shakes, slate and clay tiles, as well as specialized architectural designs.
  • Weather-resistant. The metals can be coated or painted to provide additional protection from the elements, extending the life of the roof. Metal panels are more wind- and hail-resistant than composite shingles.
  • Environmentally-friendly. Metal panels are manufactured using recycled materials.



Metal Roofing to Withstand the Elements

We use only 28-gauge steel panels, which are more wind- and weather-resistant, and stronger than lighter gauge panels. The panels are installed using Snap Lock Panels, providing a secure fit and seal.

We use these products due to the value they bring – they are more expensive initially, but last substantially longer than less expensive metal panels and are less likely to be damaged in storms. In addition, they retain their color and appearance for many, many years. Punum Roofing of Houston, Inc. is able to offer lifetime product warranties for our metal roofs due to the quality of these products and the stringent installation processes our teams use.
