An Overview of Galvalume® Roof Systems

Design-wise, a metal roof installation pairs extremely well with the rough backdrop of the Rocky Mountains. Something about the combination of rock and metal inspires a rugged industrial appeal that’s been a distinct leitmotif of homes and buildings in Colorado. Moreover, metal roofs lend much of its durability to the conditions of this demanding environment.

Our professionals at The Roofing Company specialize in metal roofing systems that can survive Colorado’s tough conditions. So, if you’re looking for a reliable metal roof for your home, we have one recommendation you’d be hard-pressed to ignore.

What Is Galvalume®?

Metals, particularly steel and iron, have always been galvanized with a layer of zinc. This protects the metal from corrosion and ensures its longevity. Metal roofs, in particular, have enjoyed the protection of galvanized zinc coating for decades.

In 1972, a roofing contractor replaced zinc with an aluminum-silicon alloy during the galvanization process and invented Galvalume®. The name itself is actually a trademarked brand, but, over the years, it has become a generic term to describe aluminized steel.

The Benefits of Galvalume

The process of galvanization gives the final product characteristics that neither steel or aluminum possesses individually. Compared to galvanized steel or iron, Galvalume has been proven to have stronger resistance to corrosion as well as other common problems that many roof systems face, such as increased temperatures, impact-related damages and high winds.

In addition to its intrinsic strength, Galvalume also comes in a wide variety of design choices that can fit the theme of any home style.
