Commercial Metal Roofing Options For Buildings
Experienced Commercial Metal Roofing Services
Commercial metal roofing offers durability and an aesthetic that is very appealing. It has been the preferred material for roofs and siding for commercial building owners and architects for a long time. The combination of versatility, affordability, and performance makes metal an excellent option for all different types of commercial building projects.
Why Opt For Metal Roofing?
Compared to other types of used materials, metal commercial roofing provides a good alternative. Other options might have lower upfront costs, but they often require more maintenance and shorter life spans.
Metal roofs can last for sixty years or even longer and only need a minimal amount of maintenance. They can withstand winds of up to 140 miles an hour. They will also not erode or crack from severe weather. In addition, metal roofing is energy-efficient and fire-resistant.
Curved Roofing Systems
This type of roofing system is an excellent option for commercial roofing projects, whether it is used as a design accent or for a while roof. Often they are made at the job site and include a standing seam system for walkway covers, curved roofs, or arched canopies.
Retrofit and Recover Systems
If you have an aging or deteriorating roof, then having a complete replacement done might no be a viable solution over the long term. This is especially true if your roof has a 1/4:12 or greater slope with a conventional membrane and requires ongoing maintenance due to UV degradation or moisture damage. If your commercial roof is on a pre-engineered building and is thirty to forty years old, it will also be beneficial to have a new roof directly placed on top of pre-existing metal panels. Retrofit and Recover systems can offer the same benefits that standing seam metal roofs do without having to completely replace the roof.
Exposed Fastener Panels
The type of metal roof is the most affordable solution for various commercial building projects. The system is equipped with overlapping panels that you directly secure to the roof deck via the metal facing. They are referred to as “exposed” due to the fastener head still being visible after they have been installed. Usually, these panels are wide so the installation requires fewer panels.

Canopy, Fascia, and Soffit System Options
Before a metal roof is installed on a commercial building, it is highly recommended that the same material be used for the commercial project’s canopy, fascia, and soffit. These can be used for vertical and horizontal installations and in various conditions. Whether you are using them for roof eaves, canopy installations, or porch ceilings, they can provide your commercial building with an attractive finishing touch.

Simulated Tile and Metal Shingles
These options combine the aesthetic appearance and curb appeal offered by traditional shingles or cedar, ceramic, and slate tiles while also providing the same performance that metal does. They have become a very popular option for commercial buildings. They are a very affordable, reliable, fast, and easy solution. Metal shingles are available in a wide range of styles and colors and are energy-efficient, durable, and realistic-looking.

Insulated Metal Panels
When it comes to metal building products, insulated metal panels represent the cutting edge. They are a composite type of panel that is comprised of a metal skin exterior along with a polyisocyanurate insulated foam core. They come with about a three-hour fire rating and offer superior weather-tightness. That means they are the ideal solution for commercial buildings with specific climate-control requirements. They are produced using a continuous poured-in-place manufacturing process. They can be used either horizontally or vertically, and also have a very aesthetically pleasing look.
Concealed Fastener and Standing Seam Wall Systems
This type of roofing system comes with a series of panels. Raised seams over the flat surface support and connect the panels. Instead of the panels sitting flush against the roofing deck, these seams make it possible for the panels to snap together with one another and also with a mechanical interlock without them being visible or exposed. In addition to providing a sleek and modern appearance, standing seam systems make it possible for panels to expand and contract with changing temperatures to help them and up better over time.
