Metal

Description

Modern metal roofing is high tech and high style and will virtually last forever. Metal roofing is usually 24 or 26 gauge in thickness, so it is very sturdy but, at the same time, very lightweight. Metal is also fireproof and, depending on your location, may help lower your home insurance.Metal can often be installed over an existing roof which would save you the additional cost of a tear-off. Many colors are available. Paint is siliconized polyester with weather resistant polymers baked in at the factory.

Metal Roof Example

 Standing Seam Roofing Example

Standing Seam

Standing Seam is the most popular style and refers to long panels of colored metal, 12 to 24 inches wide with raised seams running vertically up the face creating a sleek, modern appearance. There are NO exposed fasteners. Standing Seam is well suited for snow zones since snow and ice slide easily off the smooth surface. Maintenance is practically nonexistent if the pitch of the roof is fairly steep.

 Decorative Meal Dome Roofing Example

Decorative

Decorative refers to small panels, formed into the shape of tile roofing which are interlocked in much the same way as tile. The surface has bonded colored granule allowing for a variety of looks. Again, there are no exposed fasteners with this style metal. Decorative Metal is a great choice if a tile look is wanted and the structure is not designed for the heavier cement tile.Please contact us in regard to warranties from the various manufacturers.We are happy to discuss the various options for using metal on your building.
