Materials

Standing Seam Slate

This type of metal roofing typically have metal panels that run vertically up the roof. These panel roofs are called “Standing Seam” because their prominent feature is the raised, interlocking seam which joins neighboring panels together.

Stand Seam Metal

This metal roofing option is defined by its concealed interlocking system that connects adjoining panels. These metal panels feature raised seams and flat areas giving the roof a ridged appearance and lasting protection.

Shingle Roofing

This roofing style utilizes asphalt or metal shingles (often G90 galvanized steel and aluminum) for a seamless, durable design.

Synthetic Slate and Shake

These types of roofing are composed of a plastic and rubber mix. Synthetic slate is designed to mimic the beauty of real stone slate without the high cost or installation hassle. Synthetic slate is made by injection-molding petroleum-based materials into metal molds cast from authentic slate. Synthetic shake mimics real wooden shake, but with minimal maintenance and a lower cost. Synthetic shake can be made from asphalt, metal, cement, rubber, and plastics that are fire-rated, and impact resistant.

VALUED SUPPLIERS

Even the best roofers are only as good as the shingles, slate, and other supplies that they use. This is doubly true in Maine, where rough winters are merciless to any subpar roofing materials. Roofers Elite combines peerless roofing expertise with the best materials in the industry to ensure a perfect job, every time.

Types of metal roofing

Metal Roofing has undergone an increase in popularity over the last 10 years in the United States due to its combination of longevity, energy efficiency, and the minimal maintenance needed after installation.

While the initial cost of a metal roof may seem higher than traditional asphalt shingles, the investment pays off as metals roofs typically have an estimated lifespan of 40-70 years (2 times longer than shingle roofing), and are produced in a variety of metals (Tin, Aluminum, Zinc, Copper, & Galvanized Steel), and styles depending on your specific needs.

Zinc: used in metal roofing because of its resistance to corrosion, malleability and stylish look. However, it is mostly used as a component in various other metal alloy roofs.

Copper: The most expensive option for a metal roof, Copper roofing is known for its durability as they are known to last up to 100 years with minimal upkeep required. Copper roofs provide increased protection from fires, and age beautifully as it develops its famous patina color.

Aluminum: fractionally more expensive than steel roofing, aluminum provides a plethora of benefits that steel does not. Aluminum Roofs are lightweight, durable, resistant to corrosion, and is energy efficient.
