What is Metal Roofing?

Metal roofing refers to a roof using any type of metal element instead of the typical asphalt shingles you see on most houses.

Types of metal roofs include aluminum, copper, corrugated, metal tile, metal slate, stone coated steel, standing seam, steel, tin, and zinc.

What Kinds of Metal Roofs Do You Install?

All of the types mentioned above.

We also have access to every color of steel you can imagine, so if you’re looking for something uncommon, let us know.

If you have a type of metal roof in mind that you don’t see in the above list, reach out to us and we’ll see what we can do.

What Are the Advantage and Disadvantages of a Metal Roof?

There are several primary advantages to metal roofs:

1) Longer lasting. In the DFW area, you’re lucky to get 8 years out of a asphalt shingle roof. 

A metal roof can be double and even triple that lifespan.


2) Strength. Metal roofs can withstand the type of severe wind, hail, and climate impact that would terrorize a normal roof.


3) Low maintenance. Unlike asphalt shingles, which should be regularly inspected for defects, metal roofs can be checked annually.


4) Cooling of your home. A common myth is that metal roofs trap heat. Wrong. They reflect the sun’s rays, which keep your home cooler during the intense summer months.


Additionally, we can take a drone video of your roof. This gives you information on specific problem areas that might be resolved by switching to a metal roof.


As with everything in this world, there are disadvantages as well:


1) Unsafe to climb on when wet


While it is possible to climb onto a normal roof when absolutely necessary, under no circumstances should you attempt to climb onto your metal roof when it is wet.


2) This depends on the type of metal roof that you have, but it can be significantly louder during rainstorms or hailstorms. However, this can mitigated with appropriate installation process that insulate against noise.


3) Like normal roofs, metal roofs can fade over time and become stained.


4)  Metal roofs are substantially more expensive than most other types, so if you’re running on a tight budget, this might not be the best choice for your home.


Our summary is this: if you can reasonably afford one, then it’s definitely worth the investment.

Do I Need A Metal Roof?

Our rule of thumb is this: if you can reasonably afford one, then it’s worth the investment.

Top-Tier Building Materials

We understand the necessity of high-caliber building materials, and use only the finest of supplies when restoring your home.

How Much Does a Metal Roof Cost?

It varies greatly. Current estimates are anywhere from $8.50-$16.00 per square foot (including installation). Simply multiply the minimum or maximum number by your roof’s square footage to get an estimate of how much it would cost.

How Long Does a Metal Roof Last?

Normally, you can expect an asphalt roof to last 12-20 years. A metal roof will easily go 40-60 years, if not longer.

Now keep in mind, these are estimates for the average roof, not a DFW Metroplex roof.

Since this area frequently experiences damaging storms, we would lower these estimates to 5-8 years for a normal roof, and 25-40 years for a metal roof.

What is a Standing Seam Metal Roof?

This is one of the most popular metal roof types, and it’s recognized by it’s distinct vertical legs with flat space in between. 

It’s one of the most durable and weather-resistant roof types around. 

This design ensures that the fasteners for the roof aren’t exposed to the elements, which prevent them from failing.

Will My Metal Roof Be Noisy During Storms?

We get this question a lot, and the short answer is no.

If you’re in the middle of a hail storm, there won’t be a noticeable difference in volume between a shingle and metal roof.

Frequently asked questions and answers about our company

Ricky and Shelby started Red Ladder Roofing in early 2016 after simultaneously seeing an opportunity in construction and a need for contractors with good business skills and communication abilities.  

For those of you in North Texas, we are a local roofing company. Our office is located in South Denton but we service all of North Texas. 

We are BBB A+ accredited, GAF certified installers, CertainTeed Shingle Masters, and members of both the RCAT and NTCRA.

Both the company and our subs are appropriately insured. 

There is currently no license for roofers in the state of Texas, although we support the need for that and will be ready to join in if Texas develops one. Our business is a registered LLC however, as well as registered contractors with all applicable cities. 

On most jobs we are able to offer a 5 year labor warranty as laid out in our contract. Our products also carry warranties from the manufacturer; most product warranties are transferable. 

A project manager is on every job to oversee the project, check supplies, answer your questions, and manage the crew. We don’t just send the crew, we’re there making sure everything is done correctly and you are informed. 

During all jobs we make an effort to tarp flower beds and sensitive areas, protect pools in close proximity, and cover AC units. Our priority is getting your house dried in, after that we make several sweeps to pick up trash and use a magnetic roller to collect nails. 

A typical residential reroof takes us 1-2 days.
