A metal roof can last up to 70 years. Traditional asphalt roofing materials have an estimate life expectancy of 12-20 years.
Some metal roofs can sustain wind gusts up to 140 miles per hour. They will also not corrode or crack, and may be impact resistant. Metal roofs do not need periodic maintenance that other roofing materials often require. However, they should be inspected periodically to make sure no repairs are required.
Metal roofs will not spark and ignite into flames in the event of a wildfire or lightning strike.
Metal roofs reflect solar radiant heat, which can reduce cooling costs by 10-25%.
Metal roofs have 25-95% recycled content, but are also 100% recyclable at the end of their life as a roof. In contrast, most shingle tear-off waste ends up as part of the building-related waste stream – up to 20 billion pounds a year.

Tile: 750 pounds per square
Concrete Tile: 900 pounds per square
Metal Roofing: 50-150 pounds per square

WAYNE MCDANIEL SHARES THE JOURNEY OF THE SEVEN HILLS HEALTH AND REHABILITATION FLAT ROOF REPLACEMENT PROJECT.
Apachee Roofing estimated that it would take about three weeks to finish the job from start to finish. The crew started out by removing the two layers of roof that were currently on the building, a modified roof over the original gravel roof.
They then replaced it with a 1 inch ISO recovery board and TPO 60mil system to finish the roof off. The original tar and gravel roof was like a magnet for the sun and would absorb all of the heat, affecting energy costs. Their new roof, white and rubberized, is considered a cool roof in Florida. Not only is it more energy efficient, but it will also improve the durability and longevity of the roof.
Despite all of the rainfall in Tallahassee in December, Wayne and his team at Apachee Roofing were right on schedule with the TPO roofing installation estimate of 17-20 days.
Serving homeowners and commercial properties with quality service is something that the workers at Apachee Roofing live by. Residential services, especially repair, is majority of the company’s work.

The Apachee team started on a Friday and worked diligently through the weekend to keep the project moving efficiently, finishing on Monday.
Two weeks later, Hurricane Hermine decided to pay a visit while Justin and Courtnie were out of town.
While gone, the Wheeles received a call letting them know the rest of the tree had fallen on the house.
Justin came back to work with the insurance adjuster for the second time and determine the plan of action. Because the roof is too steep to be tarped, Chad Swearigen, with SRT, has been helping dry out the home and coordinate the rebuild, based on recommendations from a structural engineer.
The Wheeles had planned to sell the home after the initial reroof, but now they’re going to rebuild and stay. Their second reroof will begin in a few months after they resolve the structural issues. Justin and Courtnie are looking forward to working with Wayne and the Apachee team again!
