Why Metal is Such a Popular Roofing Material in Indiana
Metal is an incredibly versatile, attractive, and environmentally friendly material with which to work on roofing projects. With proven success in both commercial and residential settings, metal leads the roofing material pack in popularity, aesthetics, affordability, and longevity. Jackson Contracting, Inc. is able and willing to work with our customers no matter what materials they choose for their rooftops. In fact, we are licensed, insured, bonded, and highly skilled in the installation and repairs of a wide variety of roofing materials. Let us take a look, however, at why metal rooftops seem to be so sought after.
Metal has earned its reputation in the midwest as a material that holds up against wind, rain, hail, and some of the other potent weather systems in the region. Its malleability allows it to be shaped over multiple types of rooftops, and is easily seamed together to protect chimneys, soffits, gutters, and other roofing features.
Because metal rooftops are so popular among our customers, Jackson Contracting offers several types of metal roofing to meet the needs of our large client base. The types of metal roofs we offer include aluminum, copper, corrugated metal, metal shingle, standing-seam metal, steel, and stone-coated steel, with each being weather resistant.
Metal rooftops are incredibly durable and long lasting and by extension, save our customers a good deal of money over the life of their metal roof. In fact metal rooftops are, on average, expected to last anywhere between 40 to 50 years, barring extreme or incredibly unforeseen circumstances. And while metal roof repairs and regular evaluations are important, they often also go a long way in keeping your roof in optimal shape.
Heat travels upwards, no matter where you live or what your roof is made of. The skilled contractors at Jackson Contracting know how to put this basic scientific fact to good use, by installing metal roofs that can keep both cool air or hot air in, depending on the season. Metal roofs, particularly those made out of aluminum, are incredibly resistant to corrosion, which means that they last a lot longer than other materials. Our aluminum and alternative metal rooftops are made of recyclable materials, are lightweight, and can extend the life of your roof and the materials it is made of.
In many ways, rooftops are the first line of defense against any and all types of damage that tend to befall rooftops, residential and commercial alike. Not only is having a sturdy roof installed by skilled contractors important, but making sure that it is resistant to damage caused by natural and unnatural disasters is important, as well. Because metal is, by its very nature, fire resistant it is a wise choice that has proven safe, effective, and lifesaving.

Metal Roofing, Historically Speaking and Beyond in IN
Metal roofing in Indianapolis and other locales, has been used to secure rooftops for well over a century. The earliest record of metal shingles dates back to the late 1700’s, early 1800’s. After several years of experimenting with various types of metals, and some rather unfortunate trials and errors, it was determined that mass produced metal was the best way to protect rooftops. The rest is, as they say, roofing history.
Because it’s impervious to harsh elements, metal has become an established part of the roofing industry in midwestern cities, like Indianapolis. Due to their durability, sustainability, and practicality, aluminum, copper, iron, steel, and their alloys have proven their ability to stand the test of time.
