Are 5-V Metal Roofs cost effective?
Buying one metal roof for your home or business is like purchasing three shingle roofs! One metal roof will last you well over 30 years and metal roofs are not targeted by the insurance companies like shingle roofs in Florida. 5-V is the most affordable metal roof option with all the great benefits of other, higher priced metal roofs.
The recent dizzying spike in oil prices has made costs for petroleum-based products like shingles go sky-high. So, in years past a shingle roof was the most cost-effective roof. Now, these price increases have knocked shingles out of the inexpensive category. And while shingle roof costs are rising, metal roofing prices have remained steady, and are now competitive with shingle pricing. Even better, a metal roof will last more than 30 years, whereas insurance companies insist you replace any shingle roof that is more than 10 years old.
What is a 5-V Metal Roof?
A 5-V metal roof is the iconic roof type for the much-loved Florida beach cottage. These metal roofs look great and are ideally suited for coastal areas, like Sarasota and Bradenton. They can endure hard rains, changing wind directions in storms or hurricanes, and wind forces up to and beyond 180 mph. This type of roof is called 5-V because its metal surface is crimped with 5 V shaped creases, two along each edge and one in the middle. The roof panel profile is typically 24”.
Many prefer this classic Florida look for their roof. Luckily, a 5-V metal roof is generally more cost-effective than a standing seam metal roof. It has exposed fasteners, and the fasteners adhere through the roof panel into your purlins and sheathing. This combination of a classic Florida look and sturdy dependability make 5-V metal roofs a great bet for any Florida structure. Years ago it was necessary to replace the screws in a 5-V roof about every ten years. The washers under the screws would deteriorate from exposure to the sun. Luckily, the screws used in 5-V metal roofs have been upgraded. The screw head has been redesigned to cover the washer, so it is protected from the sun. Replacing the screws is no longer necessary.

Can a 5V metal roof protect my home from storms?
Metal roofs easily last for decades without any major changes or issues. They handle winds up to 150-mph with no problem. In contrast, as shingles age, they deteriorate, becoming brittle. These older, dried out shingles are easily blown off a roof, sometimes in gusts as mild as 40-mph. Metal roofing systems have wind resistance and uplift resistance that is above the new building code requirement.
What kind of upkeep does a 5V metal roof require?
All you need to do to keep up your metal roof is to make sure it is is free from debris and a once-yearly inspection for minor maintenance items like cleaning and paint touch ups. In contrast, shingle or tile roofs require regular maintenance to replace broken or deteriorating shingles or tiles, as well as the removal of moss and algae.
Is a 5V Metal Roof environmentally friendly?
A steel metal roof is made of about 28% recycled material and is completely recyclable at the end of its lifespan. This makes metal roofing a green building material. According to the National Association of Homebuilders Research Center, 20 billion pounds of asphalt shingles are dumped into U.S. landfills every year. If you loaded those shingles into tractor trailers, then lined them up end-to-end, they would make a line from New York City to Los Angeles, back to New York City again, then on to Chicago. That's a lot of wasted asphalt.
