Steel Roofing Contractors Serving Central Texas

Steel roofing offers many of the same benefits as other metal roofing systems. It’s durable, eco-friendly, and cost-effective. However, steel roofing also has a zinc coating that increases its resilience and corrosion resistance.

Rhino Roofers provides a variety of metal roofs from copper, corrugated, and aluminum to standing seam metal roofing.

What is Steel Roofing?

Steel roofing is made in huge rolls. To protect against oxidation, it is coated with zinc or a zinc/aluminum combination. You can choose from a range of thicknesses to best suit your needs.

Steel is lightweight, energy-efficient, and recyclable (or maybe already recycled).  Steel is easy to install which contributes to its affordability. You can make it look just like other types of roofing.

Types of Steel Roof Coatings

Two types of roofs can be coated with steel roofing. Galvanized steel roofs are coated with zinc to protect them from corrosion. It can be coated in a variety of thicknesses, depending on its intended use.

Galvalume, a trademarked product, contains an aluminum-zinc mixture. It is slightly stronger than galvanized steel. It is more durable and is popular for preventing rust or corrosion.

Steel Roof Advantages

Steel roofing offers many benefits. Steel roofing is similar to other metal roofing systems because it’s eco-friendly and cost-effective as well as low-maintenance. It does however have other advantages:

Steel roofing is more fire-resistant than other metal roofing types. It can prevent a fire from spreading and insulates your home from sparks. It has a Class A noncombustible rating, which is the highest rating possible, so you can rest assured your home is at its safest with a steel roof.

Like other metal roofing systems, steel roofing is 100% recyclable. It won’t end up in a landfill, and its lightweight properties mean that transportation and installation are much cheaper than other roofing types. You may also enjoy knowing that it can be installed over your existing roof, so you won’t pay to haul it away.

Steel roofing is extremely cost-effective. By deflecting the sun and insulating heat, steel roofing can save money on your HVAC bills year-round. It regulates the temperature inside your home efficiently so your systems aren’t working harder.

Steel naturally resists the build-up of algae and other bacteria. A generous rain storm can clean your steel roof for you, and in the winter, snow will slide off instead of adding extra weight and pressure to the frame of your home.

The average lifespan of a steel roof is 50 years or more, so you’ll enjoy the long-lasting effects of these benefits for as long as you own your home. What’s more, it will increase your curb appeal and resale value.

Steel Roof Maintenance

As with other types of metal roofing, steel needs very little maintenance. It’s important to keep it clean and make sure it doesn’t come in contact with low-hanging branches or other kinds of metal. Even without much care or attention, your steel roof should last a long time.

Steel Roof Cost

A few things contribute to the relatively low cost of steel roofing. Steel is one of the least expensive types of metal roofing. It’s lightweight and easy for a roofing company to transport. It requires less labor during steel roof installation, and it can be installed over your existing roof to save money on tear-away.

Myths About Steel Roofing

Steel roofing can be perceived as noisy. Steel roofing, regardless of its type, is quieter than other types of roofing when it is properly installed and insulated by skilled steel roofing contractors.

Many are worried about the possibility of their steel roof being struck by lightning. A steel roof is less likely to be struck by lightning than any other home because lightning strikes at the highest point of the area. Steel roofs are more effective at dissipating electricity than any other roofing material.

The advantages and the cost of a steel roof repair or replacement are unbeatable. Rhino Roofers are your local steel roofing company. We offer a free estimate and professional guidance to help you choose the best roofing solution.

I just had my roof replaced by Rhino Roofers and I am beyond happy with the job they did! I had a leak in my roof that caused my ceiling to collapse, and their professionalism and hard work helped me through this massive home repair. Matt Lawson came and inspected my roof and gave me great recommendations, and he remained in touch with me throughout the entire replacement process, answering my text messages at all hours for all my questions and concerns. His availability and professionalism made this big project much less stressful, and I cannot say enough about how much I appreciate him and the whole team. I would recommend Rhino Roofers to anyone!

We have been remodeling our entire house, and if you are doing the same, you know how difficult it is to work with contractors. You don't know what you're getting, some technicians don't have the best social skills, and you're always worried that they're telling you some gobbledygook to get you to spend more money. Of all the different renovations we've done--plumbing, electric, etc.--we have never felt in safer hands than with Rhino Roofers.The turnaround time was quick. Once we settled on a roof color and style (there are many) we had a 1.5 week lead time before they were going to come and install the roof. On roofing day, the crew was at the house at a prompt 7AM. The men worked like a NASCAR pit crew and had tarps out to catch all the asphalt crumbling off of our old roof. I have never seen roofers do this before but it was much appreciated to keep asphalt out of our grass and sidewalk. The old roof was off by noon and the new roof was on by 3PM. They didn't even take a full day to do this job!The roof looks perfect. Not a shingle looks out of place. There is an attention to detail that makes our roof satisfying to look at every time I pull into the driveway.We are in love with our new roof and the ease of this process. I highly recommend Rhino Roofers to anyone!

Came out same day and throughly inspected my roof. Mr. Holland was a true pro and made the process of understanding insurance claims easy for me to understand. Most importantly he understood the business and made me confident in his product. They are highly rated for a reason and I can back that. And although this has no effect on my rating, they do have some sharp looking work trucks! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Brandon came out a few times, even being way out in Hondo and quite the drive for him. He inspected my roof, came out with the first insurance adjuster (the adjuster was super unprofessional but Brandon remained cool and calm and professional the whole time). Brandon fought my insurance company for me and got a new adjuster to come out for another inspection and got the full roof replacement he knew I needed. He is super knowledgeable and professional. He’s kept me in the loop with the whole process and has made sure I’m happy with the results. They always upgrade your shingles to a better product. I never felt deceived and they’re very upfront about what all you’re getting. I highly recommend Rhino Roofers!

Jonah and Gus from Rhino Roofers are the best!! They worked with our insurance company and we were able to apply for financing through them for 0% the first year to make up the difference of our deductible. This massive roof was started and completed in just 9 hours. They added a much better shingle and also a mold resistant backing paper. They also added an upgraded ridge vent for ventilation and drip edge that we didn’t have. Crew was extremely professional and very clean! All the nails and old shingles were cleaned up and double checked in grass and driveway.I highly recommend you call and ask for Jonah or Gus!
