Metal Roof on Historic Home in Annapolis MarylandMetal roofs are popular in Maryland, dotting the landscape on barns, historic homes and commercial buildings. Not only is this style roof attractive, it offers a number of practical benefits. Metal roofs can offer energy savings, especially during summer months. A metal roof is also extremely long lasting and with proper maintenance can last a life time.

The draw back is that metal roofs can be expensive to repair or replace. Without proper maintenance, a metal roof can rust, break down and fall apart.
