Are you looking for a long-lasting roofing system for your commercial property? Consider metal roofing materials. Metal roofing systems are the fastest-growing segment in commercial roofing. Besides the material’s longevity, metal roof systems come in a large selection of styles and colors.
These visually attractive roofing systems (also known as “architectural metal systems”) are prevalent at malls and other commercial facilities or corporate offices.
Consider metal roofing systems for your commercial roof.
Metal roofing is an attractive alternative to other types of commercial roofing materials. While it’s not the cheapest system, other materials have a shorter life expectancy and require frequent maintenance – especially in areas with severe weather conditions. A metal roof and wall can withstand wind gusts of up to 140 miles per hour and will not corrode or crack due to harsh weather. A metal roof also provides fire resistance and energy efficiency, reducing your heating and cooling costs.
Let’s discuss commercial metal roof systems and advise you on which western commercial roofing company can help you with your project.
What are the types of metal roofing systems?
Whether you are starting new commercial projects or replacing the existing roof on your commercial buildings, you might consider using a metal roofing system.
In the past, a commercial project that utilized metal roofing materials required a structural supporting deck underneath the metal along with a watertight underlayment.
However, new structural metal systems can be attached to a metal framework and are strong enough not to require any supporting deck. In addition, these systems utilize hidden fasteners, eliminating the need to screw through the metal panels to the structure. Of course, the absence of screw holes eliminates the previous problems of rust – which often led to irritating leaks.
What are standing seam metal roofing systems?
These “concealed fastener” systems are also referred to as standing seam commercial metal roofing systems.
Generally, a standing seam roof system consists of a series of roofing panels connected by raised seams above the flat surface. The panels snap together or interlock without exposed fasteners. In addition to being visually attractive, a standing seam system allows panels to expand and contract with changing temperatures. This, of course, prolongs the life of the entire roof.
What type of materials are used for commercial metal panels?
Metal roofing manufacturers offer diverse styles of materials for your roofing project. Roofing contractors offer standing seam configurations that come in a variety of finishes. Finishes include aluminum, zinc, copper, Galvalume, and various Kynar- type color finishes.
Why choose a standing seam metal roof?
In summary, standing seam metal roofs may be the right choice for your commercial building project because of the following benefits:
- A metal roof panel is long-lasting and comes with superior warranties.
- Standing seam metal roof systems have aesthetic appeal as they are sometimes even used to replace traditional shingles on residential homes.
- The commercial applications are limitless and can be used on a sloped roof.
- They are energy efficient.
- Metal roofing panels mounting mechanisms and methods vary. They can be mounted to a solid substrate or your building’s open frame.
