The Different Types of Metal Roofs

Categories:

Metal Roof TypesMetal roofs are quickly becoming the go-to choice for roofing. Metal roofing is affordable, durable, and now can come in just about any color or texture that you can think of. There are three main types of metal roofing: shingles, panels, or standing seam systems. If you are wondering which type of metal roof would be a perfect fit, we hope this blog is useful to you. If you still have any questions, Peak Roofing & Construction can assist you in choosing the best metal roof system for your home or business.

Metal Shingles

Metal shingles are a relatively new product that can mimic tile, slate, or even wooden shingles. They come in a variety of colors, textures, and styles. They are an excellent choice if you desire the look of tile roofing without the weight or additional cost.

Metal Panels

Panels are a popular choice for commercial uses such as warehouses or industrial buildings. They attach directly to the building’s framing and can come in a variety of thicknesses. The biggest concern with metal panels is that you install them correctly with the right type of fasteners. It is crucial that you hire a reputable roofer to install your metal panel roof to prevent premature replacement.

Standing Seam Systems

Standing seam systems are long, narrow panels that snap into place, making installation a breeze. The seam system also minimizes the use of fasteners, which can have a tendency to leak or need replacement long before the lifespan of the roof is up. They are a great choice for low-slope roofs because of their super waterproof design. Standing seam systems are notoriously versatile and can be for both residential and commercial use.
