Metal Roof Installation, Repair & Replacement
Today’s metal roofs allow property owners to upgrade their structure with products that will last for decades and provide numerous benefits. Metal roofs are durable, fire retardant, almost maintenance-free, and energy-efficient since metal reflects heat and blocks its transfer into the attic. A metal roof can also increase the resale value of your home and even lower your homeowner’s insurance by 35%!
Vincent's Roofing, Inc., is proud to offer its clients the best metal roofing products, quality workmanship and unmatched warranties all at reasonable prices. By choosing a metal roof, you’ll use less building material, fill up less landfill space with discarded material, and put less demand on our natural resources. Such incentives, along with the annual savings from owning a metal roof, make it an increasingly popular material for many homeowners today.

Common Metal Roof Myths
Myth: Your home is more likely to be struck by lightning with a metal roof.
Fact: A metal roof will not increase the likelihood of lightning striking on your home. In the event your home is struck, a metal roof would disperse the energy safely throughout the structure, in most cases, with absolutely no harm done to your roof or home structure. Since metal roofing isn’t combustible or flammable, it’s a low-risk and desirable roofing option where severe weather is concerned, especially for lightning.
Myth: Metal roofs are noisy. “Raindrops sound like pennies.”
Fact: Metal roofs are not any noisier than shingle roofs. When installed with solid sheathing, a metal roof on your home will actually silence noise from rain, hail and bad weather, many times much better than other roofing materials.
Myth: Metal roofs will rust over time.
Fact: Today’s metal roofing systems are built to last. Steel metal roofing has a “metallic coating” made of either zinc or a combination of zinc and aluminum. This metallic coating prevents rust from forming and is bonded to the steel at the factory. Paint is then applied over the metallic coating to provide the long-lasting color homeowners desire.
Myth: Metal roofs dent easily.
Fact: In most cases, a metal roof can withstand decades of abuse from extreme weather like hail, high winds and heavy snow. Today’s systems also have a 150-mph wind rating, meaning your metal roof is also safe from wind gusts that can accompany heavy storms.
Myth: You cannot walk on a metal roof.
Fact: You can safely walk on any metal roof without damaging it. Before you walk on your roof, however, we recommend you talk to your installed or roof manufacturer first. They will have the details on how to walk on the particular roof you have, based on the style you chose and your roof pitch.
Myth: Metal roofs are too expensive!
Fact: Though the initial price of a metal roof may be slightly more than a traditional shingle roof, in the long run a metal roof will save you thousands of dollars more. Whereas most other roofs tend to be replaced, or at least repaired, once every 10 to 20 years, a metal roof is likely to be the last roof you ever buy with minimal or no maintenance ever needed. Metal roofs also provide energy savings and other rebates, such as discounted homeowners’ insurance.
