Providing Durable and Attractive Roof Options for Commercial Roofing Systems
Metal Roofing provides one of the industry’s most durable and attractive roof options for commercial roof systems of all styles and pitches. Metal roof systems have stood the test of time as enduring and reliable for commercial structures with an exceptionally wide variety of material and customizable aesthetic options. Designs will vary in terms of how seams connect, how the panel is mounted, and the desired finished look.
Types of Metal Roofing
Standing seam metal roofing (also known as hidden fastener panels) and exposed fastener panels are two options when choosing the look and budget you prefer for your roofing system.
Standing seam metal roofing offers long lasting attractive metal layered with horizontal or trapezoidal “seams” which conceal fasteners, providing one of the most long lasting roofing materials available with lifespans that can well exceed 50 years.
Exposed fastener metal roofing is exactly as they sound: the fasteners securing the metal sheets are exposed. These offer little difference in durability against a standing seam system but they require less labor to install and can have less impact on a budget.
Metal Roof Maintenance
Maintaining metal roofing systems includes simply tightening exposed loose fasteners as needed, painting or coating to resist rust utilizing many product options for stylish colors or a traditional visual appeal.
Materials for metal roofing systems encompass galvanized or galvalume steel (coated for color or protection), copper, aluminum, and zinc options.
Eco Friendly Roofing
From a waste reducing standpoint, metal roofing is high on the scale of eco-friendly materials. Many new metal roofs contain up to 40% recycled materials while all metal roof materials are 100% recyclable, even after spending several generations providing reliable roof protection.
