There’s No Place Like Home for a Standing Seam Metal Roof

If you think of metal roofing as being a utilitarian cover for buildings like barns, rustic hideaways and tool sheds, think again. Or, if you’ve presumed the opposite–that metal roofs are only for luxurious new homes hidden in the mountains or on spring-fed ponds–you’ll want to rethink that belief as well.

Whether it’s sufficiently scientific or not, I was curious and did a quick study of 512 residential projects where installation contractors filed for paint finish warrantees with Englert between January and December of this year. Most of the projects were new roofs but a large percentage were reroofs as well. Projects were located all over the United States. I was curious to find out how many square feet of metal roofing had been installed on these homes —and by whom.

The results tell the story of the kinds of homes and the owners who are choosing a standing seam metal roof for their home.
Yes, most of the projects being filed—24 percent—involved large homes with roofs of 3,000 to 5,000 square feet of standing seam metal.  And another 23 percent were for homes with roofs of 2,000 to 2,999 square feet. These are good sized homes, particularly when you consider that the average square footage of an American home is somewhere around 2,300 square feet and that many of them were the roofs on two-story houses with sizeable square footage.

This leaves over 50 percent of the homes in our database with less than 2,000 square feet of standing seam metal roof on them.  What does this mean?
It means that homeowners with average sized homes are choosing metal roofs for their home.

One other interesting piece of data I discovered while doing this informal research is that homeowners who had suffered through hurricanes and tropical storms were increasingly choosing standing seam metal roofs for new homes.
