Metal Roof Options
Most homeowners are familiar with metal panel systems, however there are options for metal roofing with a more traditional feel. We also offer a variety of coating options to customize even further.
A Sustainable Metal Roofing Solution
Metal roofing is sustainable, can be made from recycled material and can be recycled repeatedly unlike shingles. Far more durable and longer lasting, metal roofs cool faster than asphalt shingles in the summer and snow slides off metal roofs instead of ice damming in the winter. In the long-term, a metal roof is worth the commitment and could be the last roof your home will need. At Bryant Roofing Systems, we are devoted to providing the best options for your metal roof installation available, but the choice will always be yours.
Bryant Roofing Systems utilizes 3 major metal manufacturers based in Indiana:
Indiana Metal in Bainbridge Indiana
McElroy Metal out of Lawrence Indiana
Custom Metal Industries located in Greenfield Indiana
Which Metal Roof Material Should You Choose?
Whether you’re considering metal panels or metal shingles for your home, we help you factor in cost, quality, and coating choices to ensure you choose the right system. All three factors intersect to determine the cost of material. Metal shingles are more costly than metal panels. The cost of metal panels depends on the gauge (thickness), and the coating. Manufacturers offer both panels and shingles in premium colors. These colors can increase cost by up to 30%. Metal shingles are typically offered in one gauge, determined by the manufacturer. Panels are usually formed from 20 gauge to 29 gauge coil. We typically install 24 or 26 gauge panels on homes. The lower the gauge, the thicker and more durable the panel.
Metal Roof Labor Cost
Labor cost is also a factor that might affect your decision. Standing seam systems require more labor than exposed fastener systems. Metal shingles typically require more labor than panels. If your roof deck is sound, then consider installing panels over existing asphalt shingles. Labor cost will be notably reduced (no need to tear off existing roofing system). Bryant Roofing Systems offers a wide variety of panel profiles to match your home’s look, from metal shingles to metal panels. Our crews will professionally install your new metal roofing system. Your new roof will last 50 years, making it easy to choose this cost-effective roofing option for your home.
Install Gutters on Metal Roof
You may wonder, since metal roofs are different, can you install gutters on a metal roof? Well, the short answer is yes. In spite of the increased level of protection provided by metal roofing, you have to remember that the purpose of a gutter is to protect more than the roof fascia. Gutters play a role in controlling the flow of water on the property. Gutters prevent standing water puddles from gathering around the foundation, which ultimately would cause the damage to the foundation.

FAQ About Metal Roof Installations
Q: Is a metal roof more expensive than a regular home roof?
A. Metal roofing is a premium home product. A metal roof will cost more than what an asphalt shingle roof costs. A metal roof is similar in price to tile roofing or cedar shake roofing. However, if you currently have a slate roof, you can expect your metal roof to cost less.
Q: Does a metal roof add to the resale value of your home?
A: A brand new metal roof will add to the resale value of your home. A metal roof installation will allow you to save money on your energy bills, and with the durability of a metal roof, will give you solace that you will likely never need a roof replacement again.
Q: Does a metal roof attract lightning?
A. The fact of the matter is, lightning is attracted to the highest point, not necessarily metal. Contrary to popular belief, a metal roof has no greater chance of being hit by lightning than any traditionally constructed roof. However, a significant advantage is that a metal roof is fireproof, so if your metal roof is struck by lightning, your metal roof can help prevent your home from catching on fire because it can dissipate the electrical charge.
Q: Will metal roofing make my house hotter?
A: A metal roof installation can lower energy expenditures because a metal roof does an excellent job reflecting a fair amount of sun and radiant heat away from your house instead of absorbing heat like a traditional asphalt roof.
Q: How much more time will a metal roof last than a traditional roofing installation?
A. The average asphalt roof lasts from 12 to 20 years. You can expect a metal roof 2 to 3 times longer than a regular roof. The traditional roof life of 12 years means that a metal roof should last anywhere between 40 and 60.
Q: Can insulation be added under the metal roofing installation?
A. There are several various types of insulation that can be used under metal roofing. Because there is a wide variety of insulation options, you can save even more additional utility costs by making your roof more energy-efficient by using this inexpensive insulation product.
Q: Is a metal roof worth the additional cost?
A: If you’re looking for a significant investment when it comes to your roofing, a metal roof installation is the best decision you can make. The initial cost of a metal roof is higher. Because traditional metal roofing lasts at least twice as long than any other roofing material means that the costs associated with a metal roof is worth the expense.
