Frequently Asked Questions

Why is a metal roof worth the investment?

Life-Cycle: When compared to replacement costs of asphalt shingles, a metal roof is by far the most economical and ecological solution. Not only will it transform the aesthetic appeal, it also protects your family or business for generations to come.

Insurance savings: Many insurance companies recognize the added security of a metal roof and reflect that value in reducing premiums. This is due to its resistance to fire, hail, wind uplift, and more.

Energy Savings: A metal roof takes in less heat from the sun in the summer, keeping it cool, while helping keep your home warm in the winter because of its protection. This translates to an approximate 15% savings on your energy bills.

How long can I expect my metal roof to last?

A Merlin’s Magic Lock metal roof can easily last over 100 years. Traditional copper double lock standing seam roofs can last up to 600 years without replacement.

Is a metal roof noisy?

A metal roof installed on top of a solid plywood deck is normally quite quiet and does not make noise inside the house as some people expect. If it’s installed on top of a hollow chamber there is a greater chance of it sounding like a drum would.

Where are the metal panels manufactured?

Merlin’s Roofing Co. manufactures our own panels! This can be done at any worksite or in our warehouse. This allows us to be 100% accurate and provide custom materials without delays. Panels can also be made and shipped anywhere in the world.

Do we supply and install snow guards?

Yes, we install snow guards on all types of metal and shingle roofs. Installing solid snow guard systems engineered to withstand even the harshest of winters will stop dangerous snow/ice from falling unexpectedly

Is metal roofing environmentally friendly?

Yes, it’s the most environmentally friendly roofing choice on the market. Not only is it 97% recyclable, its long-life cycle drastically reduces waste from disposal of the old roof into landfills and the environmental cost of reinstalling a new roof.

Can we do metal roof coating/painting?

Yes!! In partnership with Inland Coatings, we can provide a top of the line roof coating which can extend the life-span of a roof for 10-20 years. We can offer a full manufacturer warranty for 10-20 years on many of the products offered.
