The Premier Metal Roofing Company

If you start paying more attention to the buildings near you, you’ll see metal roofs everywhere. Oftentimes, you may not have realized a roof was metal before now because of the customization options the material affords.

Metal roofs from Jensen Exteriors are fantastic options for many different types of buildings because they last a long time and require very little maintenance.

With a wide variety of colors and styles to choose from, you can achieve virtually any look you want for your home, barn, or business. It’s an excellent option for more reasons than you may even realize, so if you’re looking at replacing your roof, look into metal before you make your final decision.

Types of Metal Roofing

Metal roofing types are extensive. It’s a popular option for its versatility and customization options. Some of the most common metal materials used in roofing are:

  • Steel
  • Copper
  • Aluminum

Each has its own set of benefits, so it’s important to seek the advice of a metal roofing company to understand your needs and choose the best option for you. Despite the differences, there are still many reasons why metal roofing provides advantages over other roofing types and is a smart choice.

Why Choose Metal Roofing?

While metal roofing is right for some purposes and people, it’s not always right for all. Knowing some of the best reasons to choose a metal roof can help you determine if it’s something you should choose.


Metal roofing lasts for decades if it’s properly maintained. For your life in the home, you may never have to replace the roof if you choose metal.


Metal roofing holds up well against rain, snow, hail, high winds, mold, and mildew. Even debris and animals don’t seem to faze it.

Easy to Maintain

Maintenance on a metal roof is so easy that you can nearly install it and forget about it. Sure, regular maintenance will always be a factor, but the upkeep on a metal roof is so limited that – compared to other solutions like shingles, concrete, or tile – you’ll hardly need to complain about it.


Metal roofing is recyclable, making it environmentally friendly. If parts of your roof need to be replaced, metal roofing specialists will tear off the old pieces and use the scraps for other projects. In fact, your brand-new metal roof may already be made from recycled materials.

Most metals are found naturally in the earth, so while it’s recyclable, it’s also more economical to source more materials from our planet without damaging the resources. It doesn’t involve unhealthy practices like cutting down trees.

Great Value

As if a low maintenance and sturdy option for a new roof wasn’t enough to convince you metal might be the way to go, metal roofing increases the value of your home too! They can add curb appeal and may lower the cost of homeowners insurance! Metal roofing is also energy efficient. The metal actually reflects the sun’s rays in the summer and insulates the home in the winter helping to reduce energy costs in some cases by up to 25%. So while there may be larger upfront costs associated, you’ll reap the rewards to more than cover the extra investment.

Metal roof warranties also tend to be exceptional. Check with us, of course, but you’re likely to find that you can cover your metal roof for all kinds of things like leaks, damage, and more.

Types of Buildings Using Metal Roofing

Metal from Jensen Exteriors may seem like a material better suited for commercial purposes, but you would be surprised by the types of buildings that benefit from metal roofs. Their use is widespread, and if you begin to pay attention, you’ll see them almost everywhere.

  • Schools
  • Restaurants
  • Churches
  • Hospitals
  • Hotels
  • Stores
  • Office buildings
  • Homes
  • Barns

The list goes on. It has excellent weather resistance, making it an ideal choice for commercial purposes in many locations. It can keep patients in hospitals safer than other roof types because of its durability.

More and more homeowners are choosing metal because, as an individual, your budget is limited and metal roof costs are lower than other materials over time.

No project is too small, and metal can be aesthetically pleasing if you want to utilize it for an overhang, an awning, your workshop, or another creative project.

Metal Roofing Maintenance

While metal roof maintenance is minimal, it’s important to conduct regular inspections to ensure there’s no damage or to see if you need to replace it.

Twice a year, you should inspect your metal roof by:

  • Cleaning off dirt and stains that the rain didn’t wash away
  • Cleaning drains and gutters
  • Removing any branches or other objects that may be caught on the roof
  • Removing any other metal objects touching the roof
  • Checking for scratches, chipping, or fading

Most of the time, rain and other weather will wash away anything on your metal roof. If it’s installed correctly, this is the way it’s supposed to work. The surface is smooth and intended to make it easy to remove dirt.

However, there will be times when you need to clean it a little or make sure branches and other debris aren’t scratching it.

Depending on the type of metal, contact with other metals can cause it to degrade more quickly, so it’s also critical to check for any other metal objects that may be interacting with your roof and remove them.
