Tin roofing was, at one time, on almost every row house in Washington, DC.  Standing seam tin and flat seam tin can be maintained for over a century.  We have repaired and serviced tin roofs that were installed in the 1800's.  The look of the panels is the same as that of copper roofing but the color variations are greater and can be changed at any point in the service life.

Whether you are just beginning to build your home or renovating a current one, there will be decisions to be made as to what sort of roofing materials to use.  Tin roofing may not always be on the top of the list - especially with commercial builders. But tin does have several advantages. The material was used a lot in the 1800's due to its ease of production and installation. If you drive through the country, you can still see that much of the tin roofing remains standing.  It has a rustic look and longevity on its side.  A standing seam tin roof boasts many qualities that account for its popularity. Firstly, a standing seam tin roof requires next to no maintenance, and will not crack, shrink, erode, or perforate. Secondly, standing seam tin roofing provides extreme weather protection, including durability against hail and rain, and resistance to high winds - it is the most stable form of roofing during hurricanes. Standing seam tin roofing is 100% recyclable, and is fire resistant, meaning it won’t burn or support combustion, yet is still able to reflect the sun and reduce cooling costs. The lightweight material does not require additional framing, which means extra roof space for you. And finally, a standing seam tin roof is fairly quiet - the same noise level as asphalt, clay, or wood.  Please feel free to use our Contact Us page to request more information or an estimate.
