No matter what kind of roofing style, color or finish you are after, we have a metal roof available from our Boise store. Modern day steel roofs offer all of the style and beauty of these traditional roofing materials only stronger and more durable. Choose from copper, steel, aluminum or tin roofing to match your home and neighborhood. Metal roofing is common in commercial roofing applications. Structures built in the Idaho mountains or a cabin in the woods need metal roofs due to forest fires.
What types of metal roofs for sale?
There are three especially common roof types and the cost of replacement will vary with each one, so it is important that this knowledge weighs in on your decision. You don’t want to repair your existing metal roof, only to find out later that you have a roof that is a poor insulator and it would be worth your money to upgrade.

Different Types of Metal Roofs
R-Panel metal roofs are the low-maintenance metal roofing option. Their easy installation cuts own on labor, time, and disposal costs, so costs for the entire project are kept low. These roofs are also available in many different colors that look very nice on a roof. These roofing systems are very popular for both residential and commercial roofing systems. Their ease of installation has helped to make them a very popular flat metal roofing option. As with all metal roofing systems, these systems are prone to rusting and should be frequently painted or coated to combat this problem.

There are several variations of corrugated metal roofs
This is the classic metal roof, common on many older barns and shacks; the “original” metal roof. Corrugated metal panels are now often galvanized and used on restaurants and retail establishments to create a classic feel. Corrugated metal roofs integrate well with fiberglass skylight panels because they typically have similar patterns and structural designs. Corrugated metal roofs have been around for a long time and they have stood the test of time.
Architectural Standing Seam
This roofing system provides superior wind uplift protection and resistance to water than other metal roofing systems because of the way the panels interlock. They are extremely tightly constructed and provide a watertight seal that is superior to all other metal roofing systems. It is very difficult for water to work its way into the building thanks to the tight seal, which is obviously a bonus for any roofing system. Many manufacturers apply a sealant to the panels in the factory, which works to maintain the structural integrity in thermal variations.
