Why Textured Paint is changing the Metal Roofing Industry

Why Textured Paint is changing the Metal Roofing Industry

Textured paint or Crinkle paint as it is sometimes called, is making a real impact on the metal roofing industry. There are several reasons for this and we want to outline a few of them for you. Textured painted metal will not replace the smooth coated products that have been used for years, however is is a very good option to look at, and in many ways it is a better option.

What is Textured Painted metal?

Textured painted metal was actually discovered by accident in a lab several years ago. The lab technician added a special catalyst to the standard paint formula and discovered that as the paint dried, the additional catalyst caused the paint surface to texture / wrinkle. This technique was refined and tested in order to achieve the highest quality and performance.

What are the improvements of Textured Paint?MetalStandingSeamRoof.com-Standing-Seam-Metal-Roof-r2

• Less Glare, The textured paint really minimizes the glare that a metal roof can inherently have. This lends to a overall better appearance.

• Better scratch resistance, Because the surface of the metal textured, it will resist small scuffs and scratches.

• Better traction, If you have ever needed to walk on a metal roof, you are aware that depending on the conditions, it can be difficult to maintain traction. The textured surface greatly improves that traction. This is a benefit for both the installers and the homeowners.

• Hides under decking imperfections, Because of the reduced glare of the textured metal, any substrate imperfections will be less noticeable.

 Several months ago Jesse & Dorothy Steiner realized that the time had come when the roof on their home was needing a replacement. After looking at many of the different Metal Roofing options that  are available, they chose to go with the 16” wide Textured 3D Standing Seam. The Textured 3D Standing Seam was the roofing of choice for them for many reasons, including the reduced glare of the metal, and the hidden fastener system.Textured 3D Standing Seam

When the time came to choose the installers for the roof replacement Jesse chose to hire ‘Yoder Family Roofing and Seamless Spouting’ to do the project. “They did a Super Job” said Jesse, “Everything was cleaned up and the project looked great when they left. They installed the Roofing with care and professionalism, and this roof will last for a lifetime.

 

3D Textured Standing Seam  When I asked Jesse regarding what he does in his spare time, I discovered that he has a  lot to keep himself busy. His main occupation is his business, Tranquil Acres Cabins, which is located on the premises.

These three beautiful cabins are surrounded by forest, and fields in the middle of Amish Country; they feature Gas-Fireplaces and Knotty Wood Paneling. These TV free Cabins also come with a cozy Living room, Bedroom and Kitchenette; perfect for someone who is looking to get away from the busy rat-race of life, and spend a weekend soaking up the beauty of the forest, and surrounding Amish County. “We even have locals come and spend a night or two” said Jesse. There is a pond for catch and  release fishing and also hiking trails, and a small mini farm. Jesse is well versed in the local Holmes county area, and will be able to give recommendations for local activities and events. You can find out all the details at http://www.tranquilacrescabins.com and book your own getaway.
