Metal roofs : styles & choices

What do you think of when you think of metal roofing?

Metal roofing comes in many shapes and sizes.  What do you think of when you think of metal roofing?  Straight rows of ribbed vertical panels as we often see on commercial buildings?  That’s what most people that we talk to think of when we use the term metal roofing.  Most of the people with whom we speak are intrigued to know that metal roofing is also available in several traditional shapes such as:


and other Architectural shapes like triangles and specialty panels (for Historic Restoration or contemporary design) are fun, no-maintenance alternatives to status quo roofing.
These various designs in metal are made possible by the up-graded fabricating techniques available today.  It’s important to note, that, the materials available for these specialty architectural pieces are the very same materials from which commercial grade roofing is made.  You are not sacrificing the longevity or benefits of traditional metal roofing to acquire the interest and beauty of these specialty options. 

Surely specialty roofing is more costly than commercial standing seam roofing?
Surprisingly not.  In many cases the specialty shingle style roofing options are actually less costly due to the fact they can be manufactured as a production item as opposed to the need to meticulously craft long metal panels. 

Give us a call today to have a representative bring a virtual showroom to your home and discuss a tailor made option for your roofing needs.
