Different Types Of Metal Roofing Systems
Metal roofing is one the most durable residential roofing materials. It is extremely versatile, durable, and long-lasting, making it a great choice for homes in the Bay Area. There are many metal roofing options, with different features that don’t compromise on beauty, performance, or longevity. These roofing systems are worth a closer inspection.
Vertical Seam Panels
Standing seam roofing is also known as vertical seam panel roofing. It is the most popular type of metal roofing. The length of metal roofing runs from ridge to edge, with overlapped crimped areas creating the seams. Inverted U-shapes are formed by the crimped edges, which protect against water intrusion. The 5V-crimp metal roof looks similar to vertical seam panels but the ends are double-crimped as an inverted letter W and alternate with a single inverted V shape. This creates five V’s on one sheet.
There are two types of fasteners available: concealed and exposed. While concealed fasteners look seamless, exposed fasteners have a more industrial appearance and are cheaper and quicker to install. Both are equally effective and deliver exceptional performance.
Painted Profile Form
Paintable profile shape metal roofing is a great option if your home design requires traditional materials such as asphalt shingles, tiles, or wood shakes. Paintable profile roofs look just like the material they are meant to imitate, but are lighter. It is possible to choose a beautiful tile look without having to alter the roof deck in order to accommodate the additional weight. You have two options: CLASSIC(r), and KasselWood.
Stone-Coated Metal Roof
Stone-coated metal roofing is for homeowners who desire a texture that resembles premium architectural shingles and hand-cut shakes. Special coatings made from concrete or stone are used to reinforce this type of metal roofing. This makes the roof more durable and gives it an organic appearance that can withstand close inspection. It is also very easy to maintain and can last for many decades.
