That means so much! Kevin YoungKevin Young ★★★★★ My contractor had me pulling my freaking hair out. They kept telling me it would be next week before they could get the shingles in. So I called Estes Roofing and boy did they save the day. Fast, friendly service. No hassle. They actually called me back when they said they would. Great company. I will definitely be using them again for all of my future roofing needs.Hannah HearnHannah Hearn ★★★★★ Estes roofing is amazing! I purchased a new home and they were able to meet with the inspector (at no charge) to check the roof. They found that the roof had been damaged and needed a full replacement. We were able to determine that the owner had filed a claim and spent the money rather than repair the roof. Estes had my new roof on in one day and everything turned out perfectly. the office staff (Amy) was extremely helpful and professional as well. I couldn't have asked for a faster easier transaction. I now use them for all of my rental properties and they go above and beyond to take all of the work on and take care of the entire process from A-Z with minimal to no effort on the part of the homeowner. They have done may things for us at no charge and we truly appreciate their caring and positive attitudes and their knowledge of roofing and insurance claims. Hands down best roofing company in East Texas. I have heard others say they are expensive but if you want the best, you pay for the best.Amy ThibodeauxAmy Thibodeaux ★★★★★ Estes Roofing does a great job and provides great customer servicejs_loader

Metal Roof Installation

Screw Down Metal Roof

Screw-down metal roofs involve the panels being fastened to the roof directly through the metal and into the framing or deck. The fastener is exposed with this choice and that can cause problems.

Screw-down metal roofs tend to be more affordable than standing seam. This is due to their ability to work with lower-quality paint systems, thinner gauge panels, fewer accessories, and wider panels. They do not require time-intensive fabrication and perform fairly well. Finally, screw-down metal roofs have a traditional appearance that some homeowners prefer.

The disadvantages of screw-down metal roofs are multiple penetration points, one at every fastener. There can be issues related to the fasteners however. There are problems such as UV degradation and roof screws coming out. This happens when weather changes and causes the metal roof to expand and contract.

Standing-Seam Metal Roofing In Tyler, TX

The other main type of metal roofing uses a standing seam, which conceals the fastener. This type of roof has vertical risers with broad and flat areas between them.

The lack of exposed fasteners is a benefit of standing-seam metal roofs. This is the preferred method as there are no visible holes so that water can find its way in. Standing-seam roofs also tend to allow for more thermal movement. They require less maintenance than screw-down and last longer. Many people also prefer the sleek and modern appearance of these roofs.

On the other hand, there are fewer qualified contractors who can install a standing-seam metal roof. The installation process is more labor-intensive, and it costs more. You also cannot use standing seams on a lower-sloped roof. Installation of a metal roof below a 2/12 pitch roof is not recommended.

Different Gauges

In addition to standing-seam and screw-down metal roofs, there are different metal gauges. Gauge refers to the thickness of the panel you use on the roof. A higher gauge number indicates a thinner material. For residential, the minimum is 29 gauge, with 26 gauge being suitable but we use 24 gauge on our roofs. The reason why it stands up to the hail and weather like we have here in Tyler, Texas. Different roofing companies in Tyler will use different gauges of metal. So be sure to find out what gauge the roofing company is using to compare apples to apples. You should also look at the decimal thickness or rely on your roofing contractor.

Metal Roofing Is Superior

Metal roofing is easy to clean and does not require a lot of maintenance. It is not prone to cracking, chipping or warping. This makes for fewer repairs or replacements.

Our metal options have a variety of styles, colors and finishes. We can match any architectural or personal style.

Our metal roofing is recyclable at the end of its life. This is an important feature for people looking to reduce their carbon footprint.

Metal Roofing FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions
While the upfront costs of installing a metal roof are often higher than shingles, a metal roof lasts longer and will be replaced or repaired far less frequently. A typical shingle roof lasts anywhere from 12 to 20 years, depending upon how well it’s maintained and weather elements it may encounter. Metal roofs, on the other hand, can last between 40 and 60 years while also requiring less maintenance, making them a more cost-effective choice over the lifespan of the roof.

While it may be true that metal roofs on buildings like garages and pole barns intensify the sound of falling rain, this is primarily caused by the lack of a roof deck, insulation, and underlayment. On a residential home, layers of building materials between the metal roof and the living area reduce the noise significantly, making metal roofs as quiet as any other roofing material when it rains.

Metal roofing actually reflects much of the sun’s heat and energy. While conventional shingles absorb much of the sun’s heat, metal roofing can actually reduce cooling energy costs by as much as 20%. That’s because the coating used on modern metal roof panels incorporates special pigments that reflect the sun’s energy and release heat that is absorbed throughout the day.
