Atlanta Metal Roofing
Metal roofing is a relative newcomer to the residential market, but it’s becoming increasingly popular in Atlanta. As with any roofing material, metal roofing has advantages and disadvantages that will affect your decision.

At Douglas Construction, we pride ourselves on our customer-centric approach, which has earned us a 5-star Google rating and an A+ rating from the BBB. A major part of that is helping our Atlanta, GA, customers find the perfect roofing material for their needs.

Still shopping around for the ideal roofing material for your budget? Check out our asphalt shingle options.

Why Choose Metal Roofing

Metal roofs have many advantages over traditional asphalt shingles, including:

  • Longer lifespan of up to 70 years
  • Fire and moss resistant
  • Durable enough to weather Atlanta storms
  • Come in a massive range of colors, styles, and textures
  • Low maintenance

The main drawback of a metal roof is the upfront installation cost, which tends to be around double that of asphalt shingles. 

But when you consider the much longer lifespan, lower maintenance requirements, and insurance premium discounts, the long-term savings are well worth the added initial cost. 

Can I Put a Metal Roof Over My Existing Roof?

One of the most appealing aspects of metal roofing for homeowners is that you can install it over your existing shingles. Doing so can dramatically cut down on the installation cost while speeding up the roof replacement process. 

While it’s an appealing option, it may not suit every Atlanta, GA, home. The metal roof adds a lot of extra weight, so make sure your existing roof structure can support it. 

Some local building codes don’t allow for this type of installation because improper installation can do a lot of structural damage. Also, covering up damaged asphalt shingles can lead to significant issues in the future. 

That’s why we strongly recommend a thorough roof inspection by our GAF Master Elite® roofing contractors before seriously considering this option. 

Metal Roofing Myths

Many homeowners are reluctant to consider metal roofing due to several misconceptions about the product. 

Noise

A bare metal roof is likely to be very noisy, but if you have an attic and good insulation, you won’t notice any additional noise from a metal roof.

Lightning Strikes

Metal conducts electricity, but it doesn’t attract it. Combined with the fact that metal tiles are fireproof, metal roofs are safer than many counterparts. 

Extra Cold

Your roof’s material doesn’t have much of an impact on your home’s overall temperature. If you have good insulation in your attic, you won’t notice any difference during the winter. 

We understand that appearance, price, and lifespan are a few factors to consider when choosing your roofing material. We offer a variety of different materials like cedar shingles. Our expert team is always available to help you make the right choice.
