Steel Roof Installation

  1. 1. Classic Metal Roofs LLC “The Best Roofs Under the Sun” Classic Metal Roofs, LLC 264 Gleasondale Road Stow, MA 01775 (978) 562-7770 http://classicmetalroofs.com/
  2. 2. Metal Roofing Benefits  Metal roofing can be an attractive, energy-efficient alternative to traditional roofing.  The peace of mind metal roofs bring stems from:     Lasting Durability Fire Safety High Wind Resistance Energy Efficiency  Metal roofs typically increase the value of a home in several ways:  Long life  Simple maintenance  Distinctive beauty Classic Metal Roofs, LLC 264 Gleasondale Road Stow, MA 01775 (978) 562-7770 http://classicmetalroofs.com/
  3. 3. Metal Roofing Materials  Galvanized Steel, which is probably what comes to mind most readily when most homeowners think about roofs, is quite popular.  Galvalume Steel is base carbon/iron steel coated with an alloy of aluminum and zinc.  Aluminum is also in widespread use.  Copper and Zinc are expensive, but highly attractive alternatives.  Special metals include Terne and TCS (combinations of multiple metals)  In rare cases, even Titanium can even be used to construct a metal roof.  The primary differences between all of these metals is appearance, susceptibility to corrosion and staining, malleability, and cost.

  4. 4. Metal Roof Appearance  Metal roofing can be chosen in a variety of "profiles", or form factors.  Sheet Roofing (available in a wide variety of forms)  Standing Seam (with long parallel vertical channels running from peak to eave) are the more traditional, highly recognizable ones.  Newer form factors mimicking the look of more traditional wood and asphalt shake and shingle roofs have become quite popular.  Metal roofing materials can even replicate the look of traditional tile or slate materials.

  5. 5. Types of Metal Roofing Products  Architectural products are generally thinner, and are installed on roof decking, which they pass their weight loads to. They serve two functions:  Accentuating Architectural Elements of the Building  Shedding Water Efficiently.  Structural roofing products actually support weight loads directly, passing them through to the building's structural elements.  Structural metal roofing is typically used for commercial buildings, warehouses, and the like, and is only rarely used in residential applications.

  6. 6. Energy Efficiency of Metal Roofs  Metal roofs can be superior to other roof types from an energy efficiency standpoint and are often considered a more “green” option.  Reflecting more sunlight reduces the surface temperature of the roof and decreases the amount of heat that is transferred into the building  Reduces requirements for cooling, particularly in summer months.  Reflective pigments can also enhance reflectivity.  Technology was first developed by the military to improve camouflage in the infrared ranges.  Can reflect a much larger percentage of sunlight, even when it is formulated as darker colors.  Commercial availability is a relatively recent development.

  7. 7. Installation over Existing Roofing Materials  Metal roofs can be installed over existing roofing materials, because of their relatively low weight.  This can usually be done for older composition shingles, or even wood shingles or shakes.  Issues to consider include:  Weight  Building Codes  Structural Integrity of the Building.  One advantage of installing a metal roof over existing roofing is that the existing roofing acts a sort of additional insulative layer for the building, making it more energy efficient.
