A metal roofing company in Washington State is ideally located to pair a great roofing material – metal – with a climate known for sustained rains and variable temperatures, for the benefit of area homeowners.

Metal roofing is the go-to choice for homeowners throughout the Puget Sound area. Its beauty, durability, and energy efficiency are matched only by its strength against the elements. 


Chinook Roofing’s expert installers can put down a metal roof on your Seattle or Tacoma home quickly and flawlessly. From natural copper to standing seam panels, metal roofing has an unparalleled radiance and eye-catching quality.

Metal roofing may have been relegated to farm buildings and industrial sites in the past, but today’s modern designs can crown your home’s style perfectly:

  • Metal shingles
  • Vertical seam panels
  • Natural metals
  • Pre-painted press-form to mimic slate, shakes, or tiles
  • Granular-coated metal


Metal roofing is nearly unmatched in the roofing industry for its ability to endure many decades after materials such as shake and asphalt shingles wear out. The metal roof you put on your home is usually the last roof you will pay for, since metal roofing typically lasts 50 years.

Energy Efficient

Metal roofing is energy efficient, since it reflects back much of the infrared radiation from sunlight (thermal reflectance). This keeps your attic space cooler and lowers cooling costs. With proper insulation beneath the metal roof, your heating costs are lower, too. Metal roofing is a “cool roofing” option as described by the U.S. Department of Energy

Weather Tough

Perhaps most important in the rainy Northwest, a metal roof can withstand wind, rain, and snow for decades. Strong metal roofing is impervious to heavy snow loads, sleet, and hail. The steady rains of the Puget Sound area simply roll off the metal roof into your home’s gutters. The sleek, smooth surface of a metal roof prevents water from infiltrating, and the natural strength of metal prevents uplift from winds.

Other Benefits

Metal roofs require very little maintenance and, unlike asphalt shingles, metal roofing is naturally fireproof, which could help to lower your homeowner’s insurance costs. 

Metal roofing is made from recycled materials and is naturally 100 percent recyclable. The benefits of a metal roof are locked in for as many as five decades, producing a great return on your investment.
