Are you wondering what commercial metal roof replacement has to offer? There are a lot of things you metal roofs offer on the commercial property front. For starters, it is a very dependable ruffing system, which is it is a very popular choice.
Choosing Your Metal Roof Panels
You should consider installing the 1X3/4” tall panels with seams that click and lock in place if the roof has a 2/12 pitch or higher. The seams, in this case, provide a means of concealing the fasteners, producing a clean smooth look. With regards to the thickness, it ranges from as low as 24 gauges to 18 gauge stainless steel, depending on your needs.
If your commercial building has a roof with a 3/12 pitch or less, you should install panels that have mechanical seams with concealed fasteners. This ensures that no moisture penetrates through the fasteners. If the roof has a pitch ranging from 1/12 and 2/12, the roofing system should have inseam sealant to ensure that it is watertight, negating problems from arising. Typically, the panels are crimped and seamed right at the site with special equipment.
If the commercial roof has a pitch less than 1/12 and you need the visual aesthetics that come with a metal roof, you can have the flat roof look like a metal roofing system.
Generally, you roofing contractor should advise you on the longest lasting systems available and offer you this option. This is especially important if you live in an area with harsh weather conditions such as high winds. Such areas require one to install at least 24 gauge panels. Additionally, you should consider installing narrower panels with extra clips to increase the panels’ resistance to being blown off.
As for finishing, there are multiple color options over the galvanized for you to choose from.
