Gray Metal Roofing Pros and Cons

Gray metal roofing, like any roofing material, comes with advantages and disadvantages. Here, we’ll explore the pros and cons.

Gray Roof Pros

  • Lots of variety to choose from—A gray metal roof can be as unique as its owner, thanks to the variety of shades available. Choose from a charcoal grey metal roof, a burnished slate metal roof, an old town gray metal roof, a galvalume metal roof, and many more options (see below).
  • It’s classic and neutral—Gray is a great color choice for a variety of designs and aesthetics because it is neutral and timeless.
  • It’s durable—Gray metal roofing, as with all high-quality metal roofs, will endure even the harshest weather and can last decades with proper maintenance.
  • It complements modern trends—Gray metal roofs, while classic, are also having a moment. They complement the black and white, bold, industrial look that is popular right now in residential and commercial design.

Gray Roof Cons

  • It might get hot—The darker shade of gray you choose (a burnished slate or charcoal metal roof, for example), the more heat it will absorb. To avoid this effect, you can choose a lighter shade. No matter what, it’s important to consider insulation and choose a company that offers Energy Star-approved Cool Chemistry® paint systems for the highest energy efficiency.
  • It can fade faster—Again, darker shades of gray roof panels may fade slightly faster than lighter colors. The right manufacturer, however, can eliminate this issue: Green Tree Metals, for example, offers a 30-year fading/chalking warranty.

Shades of Gray Metal Roof Panels

Gray metal roofs come in a wide variety of shades for any style or motif.

Is a Gray Metal Roof House Energy Efficient?

The answer to this question depends on several factors. In general, lighter colors reflect more of the sun’s light and therefore retain less heat than darker colors. So a darker gray shade will be more energy efficient in a cold climate (by absorbing and retaining more heat) but less so in hotter months; a lighter gray metal roof, on the other hand, may be more energy efficient in the summer, but won’t offer the natural heat retention in the winter months. However, the answer isn’t always that simple. With the right metal roof coating, installation, and insulation, gray metal roofs of any shade can be as energy-efficient (or more so) than other roofing alternatives. Green Tree Metals offers the highest quality metal roofing, installation, and warranties—with the latest Energy Star-approved Cool Chemistry® paint systems that will keep your roof cooler in our sunny southern climate.

How do I choose the right gray metal roof panels?

If you’ve decided on a gray metal roof, the next decision to make is which kind of metal roof system/panel. Here are some key considerations:

  • Budget. Metal roofing systems in general are a very good value based on their initial cost and overall lifespan. But some varieties, like Tuff Rib are known to be more economical than others; typically, concealed fastener metal roofing systems are more expensive.
  • Style. The aforementioned concealed fastener systems provide a sleek, uninterrupted profile since the fasteners (bolts) are hidden. These might be the best option for residential and commercial applications where the aesthetics are of concern. Board & Batten is another common choice for a higher-end aesthetic. Others, however, prefer the rustic, classic look of an exposed fastener system, so ultimately, it comes down to your personal preference!
  • Use/Environment. Always consider your application and environment when choosing a metal roof panel system. Some provide greater energy efficiency, durability, and cost efficiency than others. For this, it pays to work with an expert who can help guide you toward the right system for your needs. Contact Green Tree Metals today for a free quote!
