The One Single Disadvantage to Having Metal Roofs You Should Know About

Most homeowners in Littleton, CO have always dreamed of having metal roofing. Standing seam metal roofing is stylish, dense, and can deliver exceptional roofing capable of lasting from 50-100 years.

Truthfully, most Littleton, CO homeowners resort to renovation bank loans, which are handy during emergencies. However, using our experience as dependable Littleton, CO roofers as a basis, we highly recommend saving up rather than using bank services as much as possible.

ABC Metal Roofing writes the advantages of owning metal roofs in the best way possible. Read more about it below.


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 roof & wall systems.


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 roof & wall panels are strong contributors to durable, weathertight building envelopes.


Made out of 25-35% recyclable materials and virtually 100% recyclable by its end of life cycle, ABC’s metal roof & wall 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.
