Eau Claire Roofing Contractors
Your roof's primary function is to protect your home from water, snow, and the damaging rays of the sun — why would you trust it to anything less than an expert. The team at Liberty Exteriors has the expertise you can trust for a steel shingle or standing seam steel roofing solution.
Roofing is one of the most integral parts of a home. As a premier Eau Claire Roofing Contractor we know that it not only needs to be properly designed and installed to prevent leaks, but it plays a crucial role in heating and cooling efficiency. Your roof absorbs massive amounts of energy from the sun, and is bombarded with snow and ice in the winter. Improperly installed roofing won't last long under that kind of stress.
Proper care and preparation of the roof prior to and during the roofing project is vitally important. We promise to take the time to do the project correctly including hammering in “nail pops”, sealing the felt and leak barriers OVER the drip edge, replacing small areas of deteriorated sheeting, installing leak barrier AND valley tin in all valleys, building a “cricket” above chimneys to help divert water, removing siding on bases of dormers and side walls to install step flashing and leak barrier, and running two rows of leak barrier on your eave edges.
Many contractors won't go to the bother of putting tarps over your landscaping, doing daily magnet runs to pick up nails, bringing in a wheeler dump trailer (which is friendlier to asphalt and easier on your lawn) for disposal, or cleaning out your gutters – but Liberty Exteriors takes Pride in Quality workmanship, and strives to do it right every time. Ask one of our satisfied customers, there's probably one on your block, or Call Us and let one of our professional consultants show you what we can do for you.
Steel roofing offers you an unsurpassed combination of aesthetics and performance. More homeowners than ever are turning to metal as the material of choice when replacing their roof. Residential metal roofs are available in a wide variety of designs - from a traditional vertical seam profile to metal shingles that resemble wood shake, slate, shingles or clay tiles - to complement any style home. Metal roofing adds value to your home, is environmentally friendly, and can save you money.
There is no material more capable of protecting a structure from wind, rain, hail, fire, or rot than a durable and energy-efficient metal roof. The initial cost to install may seem high, but a standing-seam metal roof is the least costly roof option over the life of the roof because it is virtually maintenance-free with paint finishes lasting 50 years and more.
Metal roofing's attributes are impressive. A metal roof is durable and it’s not unusual to find metal roofing that has been in use successfully for 100 years. Copper, galvanized steel, and aluminum (Galvalume is the galvanized version of aluminum) are the three metals most commonly used to build standing-seam or other types of metal roofs. All offer virtually the same durability, aesthetics, and finishes.
It's also lighter than asphalt shingles so there is an option to add a new metal roof over an existing asphalt surface. If there is only a single layer of asphalt shingles on an existing roof, a standing-seam metal roof can often be applied over it without the need for a tear-off. This savings can help to offset some of the cost difference between a metal roof and asphalt shingles.
Metal roofs now sport a host of colors, matte finishes, and profiles. They are beautiful, durable, and almost maintenance-free. As a matter of fact, metal roofs are so durable and desirable that they add approximately $1.45 per square foot to a home’s overall value. Insurance companies give discounts of up to 35 percent to homes with metal roofs because when properly installed they are virtually impervious to wind, hail, and fire.
Metal roofing is also energy efficient. A metal roof can reflect the sun’s energy and block heat transmission from the roof to building members and living space. Properly ventilating the roof is vitally important to its efficiency and lifespan. Installation of standing-seam metal roofs is best left to the pros. A good roof system is designed to accommodate the expansion and contraction of the various components.
Choosing a new roof is an important decision. Since up to 40% of your home's exterior may be the roof, your choice will greatly affect your home's visual appeal; now, and in the future. Let our consultants walk you through the advantages and dis-advantages of different steel products to determine if steel is right for you and your home. There are many things to consider when purchasing a steel roof - from design, home style, efficiency, goals, and whether the investment is right for your future.
