Metal roof flashing is the same as the flashing on other types of roofing materials. Metal roof flashing prevents water leaking into the house in areas of the roof that break the conventional shape of the roof. Near skylights or chimneys, flashing is the thin metal piece strategically installed to prevent water entering.
Corrugated metal roofing layers and shapes multiple layers of thin metal to increase the resilience and strength of metal roofing panels. This method takes a comparatively malleable material like aluminum or steel, making it sufficiently strong enough for years of extreme weather.
A metal roof is the most energy-efficient roofing material on the market today. Based on the Toronto weather patterns, with a metal or steel roof, you could save up to 15% in both heating and air conditioning because of the increased levels of insulation the metal provides.
The first step is an accurate measurement of the roof area. The old roof is removed. Then the edging is added. Then the roof itself is installed. The last step is the flashing to seal everything up against any potential leaks. From start to finish this usually takes 3 or 5 days for most houses.
Metal and steel roofs last at least 50 years. Many metal roofs on castles in Europe are hundreds of years old! A metal roof lasts at least 3 to 7 times longer than a typical asphalt roof.
