Residential Metal Roofing Systems in St. Louis

Metal roofing has been increasing in popularity throughout St. Louis recently. And, with its energy efficiency, durability, and ease of maintenance, it’s not hard to guess why. Add in the reasonable metal roof cost, and metal roofing is an attractive option for any homeowner. Here are just a few reasons St. Louis homeowners are turning to metal roofing over other roofing options.

Benefits of Metal Roofing

Metal roofing systems are more unique than most other types of roof systems. Here are a few features that make metal roofing products stand out from the crowd.

Aesthetic appeal

Our roofing contractors can deliver metal roofing panels that look like almost any other popular roofing material, including slate, shake, asphalt shingles, and tile. And, with the wide variety of types of metal roofing, including zinc, steel, copper, galvalume, or aluminum roofing, you can create any type of design or look you’d like. You can also select from a huge breadth of paint coatings to fit your home’s unique style.

Energy efficiency

One of the main reasons St. Louis homeowners are turning to metal roofing en masse is because it can drastically reduce energy bills. More than some other roofing options, metal roofing such as copper roofs can, with the right coatings, treatment, fasteners, and insulation, reflect the sun. As such, metal roofs can lower heating prices in the winter and cooling prices in the summer.

The energy savings a metal roof provides oftentimes make it more cost-effective in the long run.


The national average metal roof cost is about $16,000. However, every roof is different. Your metal roof cost can vary based on the pitch or square foot area of your roof.

Although they’re on the more expensive end of the roofing costs spectrum, metal and steel roofing can be worth the initial investment because they have a lifetime of about 50-70 years. They’ll live even longer if they receive the proper maintenance throughout their lifetime. By comparison, other roofing materials have a lifespan of about 20-30 years.

Additionally, metal tiles are fire-resistant, adding an extra layer of security to your new roof.

The initial metal roof cost can seem steep, but this will likely be the first and last roof installation you will have to pay for. Imagine the peace of mind you’ll receive knowing you’ll never need to worry about your new roof ever again.

Ease of maintenance

Recent advances in paint coating and sealant technology have drastically improved the lifetime of metal roofing in St. Louis.

When you hear about a metal roof completely rusting through, it likely has old metal panels that the installer improperly implemented. You can avoid this mishap by partnering with the right contractor in the first place.

Reputable roofing companies install, seal, and insulate your St. Louis metal roofing properly. If the contractors are especially skilled, they pay special care to flash, ridges, and valleys to prevent leaks and maximize the lifetime of your roof. Moreover, metal shingles and sheets are typically treated and coated in order to prevent rust, minimize UV damage, and insulate your home.

While a new metal roof can save St. Louis homeowners money in energy bills and maintenance, your roof needs to be installed correctly by a trustworthy St. Louis roofing contractor. Wildwood Roofing & Construction has been installing, maintaining, and repairing metal roofing in St. Louis for years. We hold ourselves to a higher standard—that’s why our clients have so many good things to say about us.

Why Metal Roofing May Be A Perfect Fit

The roof panels featured in a metal roofing system are versatile, lightweight materials that are built to last and designed to protect your home. It is 100% recyclable and promotes energy efficiency, reduces household energy consumption, and provides a high-end look in the style of your choice without spending a fortune.

Metal roofing can last up to four times longer than traditional asphalt shingle roofing. This deterioration is due to the fact that organic materials like asphalt shingles and wooden shakes start to decline as soon as they are exposed to the weather. But our metal roofing’s superior resistance stands up to the harshest weather conditions—like hail, heavy snow, strong winds, and 130 mph winds. Its incredible resistance paired with a full manufacturer warranty means your home will be sound and secure for years to come. And because our metal roofing protects your home so well, it can even lower the cost of your homeowner’s insurance.

The stylish options in metal roofing come in a variety of textures and colors—including some in Energy Star® rated paints which reflect up to 65 percent of the sun’s solar radiation. This keeps your home cool in the summer and reduces wasted energy and your utility bills. Some homes cannot stand up to heavy materials like slate and tile, but metal roofing flawlessly mimics these heavier materials with a lifelike appearance. Your options include:

  • Shake: captures the look of wood shake roofs by replicating the natural coloring and irregularities of real wood.
  • Slate: replicates the look of slate with irregularities like chiseling and cracks found in the stone.
  • Tile: comes in eight traditional and contemporary colors to give you the interest and character of tile.
  • Standing seam: a standing seam roof showcases the look of a traditional metal roof that is both practical and updated and comes in 10 different colors.

Metal Roofing Features

Our metal roofing is not only beautiful as a residential roof, but it also leads the roofing industry for hail and fire-resistance ratings.

In climates with extreme weather conditions such as wildfires, snow load, ice dams and wind storms, a solid, weather-resistant roof is a top priority. The strength and practical aspects of sheet metal make it a responsible roofing material choice for any homeowner. A 130-mile-per-hour wind rating means a metal roof is always ready for a strong wind storm.

As a fire-resistant roofing surface, the installation of a metal roof also offers the potential of reduced homeowners’ insurance costs for the home.

The strength and durability of modern metal roofing mean it can last up to four times longer than a traditional asphalt shingle roof. Because they are organic materials, asphalt shingles and wooden shakes begin to deteriorate as soon as they are exposed to the weather. Tile, shake and concrete roofs can crack or warp, especially when exposed to freeze-thaw cycles in four-season climates. Metal roofing eliminates these risks and lasts for many years without signs of wear or failure.

Four Distinct Metal Roof Styles For Your Home


Our shake roofing shingle styles capture the look of a wooden shake roof. You’ll be amazed how close this looks to the real thing!

We offer many metal roofing styles that replicate both the natural colors and irregularities of real wood without the maintenance needs and risk of fire. Shadow lines, elevation changes, and other natural features of wood are replicated in our long-lasting metal roofing with a high wind rating and chiseled troughs to allow consistent water flow away from the roof.


As with our shake roofing style, metal roofing can also capture the look of natural slate. The irregularities of stone, chiseling, and cracks are all incorporated into the metal roofing design to provide a beautiful roof without the heavyweight of slate. A high wind rating, elevation changes, and chiseled troughs add to the functionality and practical applications for this metal roofing material. A variety of five different natural colors are offered.

We carry three different panel sizes, with PVDF Tri-Pigment Reflective Technology® paint to offer fade protection and energy conservation. All ten of the color choices are Energy Star® rated, with both sides of these strong 26-gauge panels painted for exceptional weather protection.
