Metal roofing for commercial property is becoming more and more prevalent. There’s a lot of information to wade through before you, as the building owner or manager, makes your choice on the type thats right for your building. Installed properly, its a very dependable roofing system.
You can achieve a lot of different architectural looks with the many options available. For a smooth, clean look and to conceal the fasteners, you would install panels with seams that snap and lock into place. These types of panels can have a thickness range of 24 to 18 gauge steel. There are also lot of color options to pick from with these galvanized, painted panels.
Thin panels are available too, with gauges as thin as 29 gauge. You should be looking for the most durable and long lasting system that your budget can handle. Your commercial roofing contractor should be helping you make this choice. High wind conditions are something we need to deal with here in Texas, so you should think about installing a system that utilizes extra clips, at least 24 gauge thickness and a narrower panel to keep them from blowing off.
You can better keep moisture from destroying your fasteners by using panels that have concealed fasteners with mechanical seams. You’ll need a roof with a pitch of 3 1/2 or less for this.
If your roof is pitched between 1 1/2 and 2 1/2, to keep it watertight, you’ll need to include an inseam sealant. We can use equipment to right on site that will seam and crimp your panels. If you’re looking for the curb appeal of a metal roof, but your roof is pretty much flat with a slope of under 1/12, there are many options to choose from.
