Metal Roofs: Leading the Way Toward Energy-Efficiency

Commercial metal roofs are becoming increasingly popular due to their energy efficiency and durability. Metal roofs are highly reflective, meaning they reflect sunlight and heat away from the building, reducing the energy needed to cool the interior. Additionally, metal roofs are made of recyclable materials and have a lifespan of up to 50 years, making them a sustainable and cost-effective option for commercial building owners.  Metal roofing is also ideal for matching with a solar array and ideal pairing!

Metal roofs come in various styles, colors, and finishes, allowing building owners to customize their roofs to fit their aesthetic preferences. Metal roofs can also be installed over existing roofs, reducing the need for costly and time-consuming tear-offs.

In addition to their energy efficiency and durability, commercial metal roofs are low-maintenance. They do not require frequent repairs or replacements like some traditional roofing materials.

Overall, commercial metal roofs are leading the way toward energy efficiency in the construction industry. They offer a sustainable, customizable, and low-maintenance option for building owners looking to reduce their energy costs and carbon footprint.

Spice Up Our Concrete World

Structurally speaking, not many options are given when constructing a commercial building. Concrete, brick/block, steel, or wood are essential to the structural integrity of your building. However, the exterior finish doesn’t have to be concrete gray or brick red. Wall panels, rainscreen, curtain walls, and accent systems can be installed over the exterior walls (new or existing) and are available in a wide range of standard, premium, and metallic colors. Also, the systems are available in a variety of profiles, shapes, and textures, which will “Spice Up Our Concrete World”. I know….cheesy, but true. On a serious note, the installation of those systems will protect the structural components and require far less maintenance than just paints and coatings.

The Lyric gets a roof upgrade with Cole Roofing Company

The Lyric Theatre in Baltimore was built in 1894. The building is on the national register of Historic Places. It is one of the gems of our city.

So, when it was time to modify the roof, it made sense to choose a roofing company with the capacity, competence, and over 100 years of experience. Cole Roofing Company recently completed the roof renovation project. The work performed included restoration and coating of the existing metal roof, thereby extending the life of the roof for over 20 years with a manufacturer’s warranty.

The extreme pitch of the roof challenged our team to ensure that the coating was properly applied and safely implemented. The job required a lot of pre-planning and frequent review.

The Lyric is located on Mt. Royal Street near the University of Baltimore. It is another of the many historical projects Cole has performed that ensure Baltimore’s treasured buildings are handled with care.
