Do you need some information about commercial metal roof replacement options? Metal roofing is becoming very popular for commercial buildings. When it is correctly installed, it is a very reliable roofing system.
Commercial roofs that have a 3/12 or steeper pitch, it would be appropriate to install panels featuring a 1 X 3/4” tall metal panel that has a seam that snaps and then locks in place. The seam conceals the fasteners which provide a smooth and clean appearance. One major benefit of this kind of panel is it provides a wide range of 18 to 24 gauge thick steel. There are various color options of painted galvanized panels that are available.
Thinner panels are another option, that can be as thin as 29 gauge. The longest lasting systems should be offered by your commercial roofing contractor that are as durable as possible. In areas with high wind, it is best to go with a 24 gauge thickness or thicker, but you can consider going with a narrower panel that has extra clips so that panels over time are prevented from blowing off.
If the pitch on your commercial roof is 3/12 or less, the type of panels that you should install are ones featuring mechanical seams that have concealed fasteners. That will help to ensure that the fasteners are not penetrated by moisture.
If your commercial building has a 1/12 to 2/12 pitch, it needs an inseam sealant in order to ensure that it is watertight, even in potentially problematic areas. The panel is seamed and crimped using equipment right from your site. If the slope on your roof is less than 1/12, then you create a flat roofing system that looks similar to a metal roofing system if you like the appearance of a metal roof.
