Did you know that many manufacturers offer up to a 50 year warranty on their metal roofs? You might wonder how they can do this, and even market "lifetime warranties". Well their confidence to offer such long terms stems from the fact that metal roofing is such a superior product compared to the typical roof that will only last 17 to 20 years. Metal alloys (Galvalume) combined with modern coatings allow for roofing systems that hardly show any age even after 30 years! Homeowners have options which will affect the length of your particular metal roof warranty, such as which coating you choose, your area and installer. Opting for the more expensive but superior Kynar 500 coating over the lesser silicon/polyester will add years to your warranty but also keep your metal roof looking like new. Depending on the options you choose, you could end up with a 50 year warranty on the roofing system itself, but a 30 year warranty on the coating or paint system.
It is extremely rare that consumers need to claim their metal roof warranty but it is great to know they are there. These extremely long warranties show that metal roofing is the best long term roofing solution available.
