 If you need a permanent replacement for your leaky roof, want to lower your energy and maintenance costs, or are simply looking to enhance the curb appeal of your home, then let Graber Roofing install American Building Components’ residential metal roofing options as the perfect solution. With benefits ranging from low maintenance to energy efficiency, metal is the foremost roofing material in the industry. ABC's superior products offer exposed fastener, hidden fastener and standing seam metal panels for your home.  

 

ABC's residential metal roofing and siding is recognized for its durability and resistance to harsh weather, providing increased protection for your home against wind, hail, ice, snow, and fire. We install metal roof panels that are covered by Underwriters Laboratories (UL) Class A* Fire Rating, UL 90 wind uplift rating and Class 4 UL Impact Resistance (hail) rating.

 

What does metal roofing cost?

Metal roofing has a higher initial cost than other roofing materials; however, your metal roofing investment will save you time and money in the long term. Compared to asphalt shingles, metal roofing has a longer lifespan (15-18 years vs. 60+ years), requires only annual maintenance, and reflects heat, making it more energy efficient than a traditional asphalt roof. These benefits make metal roofing a better long-term investment for your home.

 

LONGEVITY

A study by the Metal Construction Association (MCA) showed the life-expectancy of low-slope unpainted 55% Al-Zn alloy coated, commonly referred to as Galvalume®, steel standing seam metal roofing (SSR) system is 60 years. The service life of a commercial building is also 60 years, according to LEED v4, essentially meaning a Galvalume metal roof does not require replacement. This benefits both building owners and the environment by lowering the demand to produce replacement roofing systems.

 

DURABILITY

In addition to a long service life, metal is widely known as a resilient material and a strong match for extreme weather conditions. Supported by third party testing, ABC’s metal roofing and wall panels offer fire and wind resistance and prevent air and water leakage. Capable of withstanding up to 140 mph winds, ABC’s metal roofing panels are strong contributors to durable, weathertight building envelopes.

 

SUSTAINABILITY

Made out of 25-35% recyclable materials and virtually 100% recyclable by its end of life cycle, ABC’s metal roofing panels provide energy efficiency throughout and beyond its composition. ABC’s metal roofing systems are coated with infrared reflective Cool Roof finishes; much of the sun’s infrared radiation is reflected and keeps the roof surface temperature lower than uncoated or traditional roofing materials, offering energy savings, including significant reductions in HVAC costs.

 

Metal panels are strong hosts for other energy efficient, and even energy producing, building materials. ABC’s metal panels may be used with any type of insulation system and can support very thick insulation, maximizing a building’s performance. Additionally, metal roofs are ideal surfaces for solar photovoltaic (PV) systems. PV systems can be installed on a metal roof penetration-free, resulting in high performance with minimal risk.

 

All of these benefits make metal roofing the best choice for agricultural, commercial, residential and post-frame building applications.
