Metal roofs are known for their durability and fire resistance. With proper maintenance a metal roof installation can last for decades.
Also known as standing seam metal, the most common type of metal roofing is steel, but aluminum and copper are also used.
Installation of a metal roof is a complex process that requires special training and experience.
- First, the roof deck must be prepared by attaching furring strips or battens to provide a flat surface for the metal panels.
- Next, the panels are cut to size and installed on the roof, starting at the eave and working up to the ridge.
- Finally, the panels are secured with fasteners and sealed with flashings and sealants to prevent leaks.
Metal roof installation can result in a beautiful and long-lasting roof.
