Metal RoofingMetal roofing provides you with a beautiful option that is also extremely energy efficient and durable.
Looks Great Without The Maintenance
If you’re someone who leaves home updates to the experts, a metal roof might be the right choice for you! This type of roof can can last 30 to 50+ years with little to no maintenance! Metal roofing will also maintain it’s great look for many, many years!
Residential metal roofing is made to look just like common roofing materials, like asphalt or tile. Rock & Tait will work with you to choose a style that are sure to match the characteristics and finishes of your home and neighborhood.
Another benefit of metal roofing is it can save you largely on your annual energy costs! It can help you keep heat in during the cold months, and keep excessive heat out during the warm. Tough in any condition, metal roofing can handle just about anything that our crazy Wisconsin weather can subject it to! This type of roofing is also great for the environment because metal roofing is often made from recycled materials. It can also be laid over your existing roof in some cases, so the project waste is substantially lower.
