  3. 3. Presented by: Metal Roofing Systems, Inc. AIA Provider #40107303 Course #GG101
  4. 4. Learning Objectives: at the end of this program, participants will be able to understand the following: 1. The history and applications of metal roofing systems 2. The attributes and performance of metal roofing 3. Sustainability and life cycle cost of metal roofing 4. How to design with and specify metal roofing systems 5. Types of warranties and how to maintain metal roofs
  5. 5.  970 B.C., the temple in Jerusalem had a copper roof  Europeans were masters in the use of metal roofs to protect buildings ◦ famous structures include the Pantheon in Rome (2nd Century A.D.) and Notre Dame Cathedral (12th Century A.D.)  Metal roofs were valued for several reasons: ◦ Strong enough to resist earthquakes & the strong winds of tropical hurricanes ◦ Visually appealing ◦ When coupled with Dutch-style peaked roof and drainage system, the metal would purify water to be stored for household use ◦ Fire-resistant
  6. 6.  Became popular in the Virgin Islands in the 1900’s  Robert Merwin & Co., a St. Croix Island based business, was founded in 1892 to import corrugated metal for buildings  Product became more widely available and less expensive which increased the use and established metal roofing as a practical and versatile alternative to clay times
  7. 7.  Today’s metal roofing industry continues to grow with new technologies and automated manufacturing  Latest techniques include automated roll-forming, double folders, coatings, sealants and fastening systems have dramatically lowered cost and increased versatility
  8. 8. Architects specify and use metal roofs on every type of structure, providing owners with an aesthetic pleasing design and unique long term benefits.
  9. 9. Types of Construction  Single Family Residential  Multi Family Residential  Office Buildings  Industrial  Institutional  Agricultural
  10. 10.  Primary Roof Body  Accents (valleys, gutter downspouts…copper)  Patio Structures, covered porches, etc.
  11. 11.  Primary Roof Structure  Accents (valleys, soffits, gutters, downspouts, etc.)  Architectural Interest (cupolas, dormers, finials)
  12. 12.  Primary roof structure  Provides structural stability  Economical, metal allows for larger roof structure & fewer seams.
  13. 13. 1. Lighting 2. Noise 3. Rust 4. Dents 5. Durability
  14. 14.  Easy to install  Aesthetically Pleasing  Lightweight  No rotting  No cracking  No splitting  Fire resistant  Low maintenance  Cost savings
  15. 15. 1. Weather Resistance 2. Energy Efficiency 3. Fire Resistance 4. Structural Integrity
  16. 16. 1. Durability 2. Water resistant 3. Superior Coatings 4. Provide structural resistance
  17. 17. 1. R-value 2. High heat/solar reflectance 3. Can meet energy star requirements
  18. 18. One of the inherent benefits of metal roofing systems is that they are resistant to fire
  19. 19.  Fire rated test through Factory Mutual (FM) & Underwriters Laboratories Inc. (UL)  Review the fire ratings in three critical areas: ◦ Roof deck ◦ Roof insulation ◦ Roof covering
  20. 20. Classifications  Class A (best) ◦ Highest rating, offering the highest resistance to fire ◦ Typically concrete or clay roof tiles, fiberglass asphalt composition shingles and metal roofs  Class B  Class C  Unrated (worst) ◦ Worst ratings, generally untreated wood shake roof
  21. 21. Evaluates the following: 1. Flame penetration through the roof covering into the attic space, 2. Flames spread over the surface of the roof covering 3. The propensity for the roof covering to become dislodged and generate embers.
  22. 22. 1. ASTM 1592 2. UL 580 3. UL 1897 4. TAS 125 ASTM 1592
  23. 23. ANSI/SPRI ES-1 1. Developed by SPRI 2. Approved by ANSI 3. Approved by ICC 4. Added to the IBC ES 1 Test
  24. 24.  Recyclable  Energy Efficient  Helps to Reduce Urban Heat Island Effect  Installs over Existing Roof Systems  Low Maintenance / Long Life
  25. 25.  On average about three times the cost of conventional asphalts roofs  The difference in cost is primarily attributed to material cost and installation process  Installation typically takes two to three times long than a conventional roof Image
  26. 26.  Will outlast cedar shakes and tile roofs  Provide measurable energy savings  Increase the value of the property  Lower maintenance  Higher performance  Overall lower life cycle cost
  27. 27.  Higher initial cost, lower life cycle cost  Metal roofs have a significantly longer expected service life than either asphalt or single-ply roofs  Metal roofs can expect to last 15 to 20 years longer than asphalt and single-ply roofs
  28. 28. ASTM E917, standard practice for measuring lifecycle cost of buildings and building systems, is a uniform procedure for estimating lifecycle cost for all types of roofing systems, including metal roofing
  29. 29. 1. How important are aesthetics 2. How unusual is the buildings geometry 3. How long does the owner plan to keep the building 4. How important is “SUSTAINABILITY” to the building’s owner Main considerations in determining to design with a metal roofing system:
  30. 30. 1. Buildings require a lot of penetrations 2. Applications with highly corrosive effluents 3. Owner looking for the least expensive roofing system with minimum performance Main considerations in determining not to design with a metal roofing system:
  31. 31.  Specifiers today have a wide array of roofing options to consider  Roofing criteria and options include: ◦ Aesthetics ◦ Performance ◦ Longevity ◦ Cost ◦ Maintenance ◦ Sustainability ◦ Structural
  32. 32. Areas of differentiation include:  Quality of design  Type of substrate  Type of coating  The manufacturing process
  33. 33.  Looking to reduce up-front cost for short-term savings will ultimately lead to an overall higher cost and potential liability  Learning to evaluate and analyze the bottom-line benefits of roofing longevity is critical to specifying the appropriate metal roofing solution  The performance-to-cost ratio will vary with every roof specified and can only be identified through a comprehensive review of critical design factors
  34. 34.  Samples of the product  Test reports  Company brochure  Case histories  Project references  Warranty documents  Master Format specifications
  35. 35.  International Code Council (ICC) ◦ International Building Code (IBC – commercial) ◦ International Residential Code (IRC – residential)  Local codes always takes precedence (must be stricter)  More than 40,000 building codes across the U.S.
  36. 36. IBC Code chapters relevant to metal roofing:  Chapter 15, “Roof Assemblies and Rooftop Structures,” which provides minimum requirements for metal roofs  Chapter 16, “Structural Design,” which provides structural requirements for different aspects of construction, including but limited to roofing
  37. 37. ASCE7 – minimum design loads for buildings and other structures provides guidelines for each of three roofing zones:  Zone 1 represents the central portion of the roof  Zone 2 represents the perimeter or outside edges of a roof, where forces are more severe  Zone 3 represents the roof corners where wind forces are at the most severe
  38. 38. First and Foremost The best way to avoid quality issues in a metal roofing product is to invest in a high-performance product that appropriately fits your project needs. Put another way…don’t shop warranty, shop products.
  39. 39.  No Dollar Limit  Non-Pro Rated  Total System  Single Source
  40. 40.  Regular Inspections are needed to ensure any issues that may have arisen can be corrected in a timely fashion  Inspect immediately following incidents of severe weather.  Pay careful attention to gaskets around penetrations.
  41. 41. 1. Metal Roofs have a Proven History 2. Metal Roofs provide excellent Performance even in Extreme Conditions 3. Metal Roofs are both a SUSTAINABLE as well as a RESPONSIBLE design choice for both Owners and the Environment 4. Metal Roofs provide a great degree of Design Versatility 5. Metal Roofs carry Warranties that provide owners with “Peace of Mind”
