The Benefits of R-Panel Roofing in El Paso

If you want to be on the cutting edge of roofing materials and technology in El Paso, you should consider R-panels. R-panel roofing is a new take on traditional metal roofing that adds a unique look and design. It’s a multi-use style and materials used for walls, siding, and roofing.

What is R-Panel Roofing? 

R-panel sheets or slats are made of metal and are typically 36 inches wide and 26 gauge thick. The R refers to the fact that these panels have “raised ribs,” which provide more protection and coverage than traditional metal panels. 

R-panels consist of three parts: the raised ribs, a flat section, and a slightly raised section in the middle of the flat areas. While these features give R-panel a unique, modern design, they’re also implemented for practical reasons. R-panels have less metal on metal connections and require fewer screw joints than other panels. The thickness of the metal and the fact that the panels overlap more with one another make the possibility of a leak almost nonexistent.  

What are the Benefits of R-Panel Roofing? 

Increased Efficiency 

R-panels are more efficient than traditional metal and shingle roofs for several reasons. First, you can choose a color for the roof that reflects the sun and directs heat and radiation away rather than soaking it in. R-panels are also very thick and overlap at places, so the heat has less chance of seeping through. All in all, you could see up to a 25% cut in energy costs when you install R-panel roofing. 

Easier to Install 

R-panels are also very quick and easy to install, reducing installation costs. Contact us at Chaparral Steel for a quote on some of the best R-panels in El Paso. 

Perfect for Redoing a Roof 

If you’re replacing your roof with a new one, R-panels are a great option because you can install them on top of your shingles. This makes installation quicker, easier, and cheaper. 

Extremely Durable 

Because of the thick R-panel roofing and the high quality of metal it’s made from, it’s extremely durable. In most cases, R-panels can last for 30 to 40 years or even longer with proper maintenance and inspection. 

Very Little Maintenance 

While all roofs require occasional cleaning, maintenance, and inspection, R-panels need them much less frequently. Because of how durable and resistant R-panels are to damage, they require almost no maintenance. 

Color Options 

If you want a new roof, not only to increase the safety of your home but also to increase its aesthetics, R-panels are the way to go. You can choose from a variety of color options depending on your preferences. Choosing the right color will also increase the resale value of your home.

Leak and Weather Resistant

Another reason that R-panels are becoming increasingly popular is because of how tough and durable they are. R-panels are installed with more overlap between different panels which means leaks are almost impossible. Additionally, R-panels are heat, fire, wind, and hail resistant, making them nearly indestructible.
