The Different Kinds of Metal Roofing Systems

Metal roofing is one of the best residential roofing materials you can find. It’s extremely versatile, exceptionally durable and promises excellent longevity, ideal for homes in the Bay Area. There are several kinds of metal roofing systems, each with unique features that do not compromise on performance, longevity or beauty.

Metal Roofing Systems

Take a closer look at these roofing systems below.

Vertical Seam Panels

Vertical seam panel roofing, also known as standing seam roofing, is the most common metal roofing system available. Metal roofing lengths run from ridge to eave, with overlapping crimped areas forming the seams. The crimped edges typically form an inverted U-shape, which protects against water intrusion. A 5V-crimp metal roof is similar to vertical seam panels, except that the ends are double-crimped like an inverted letter W, alternating with single inverted V shape, forming five V’s in a single sheet.

We offer different fastener options; you can choose either concealed or exposed fasteners. Concealed fasteners create a seamless aesthetic, while exposed fasteners are more industrial looking, and also more cost-effective and faster to install. Both options work equally well, delivering exceptional performance.

Painted Profile Shape

If your home’s design calls for traditional materials like asphalt shingles, tiles or wood shakes, painted profile shape metal roofing can give you this aesthetic without sacrificing performance. Painted profile shape roofs are installed just like the materials they are supposed to mimic but are much lighter. You can choose an elegant tile look without needing to modify the roof deck to support the added weight. We offer options from CLASSIC® and KasselWood.

Stone-Coated Metal Roofing

For homeowners who want a textured look reminiscent of premium architectural shingles or quality hand-cut shakes, we offer stone-coated metal roofing. This type of metal roofing is reinforced using special coatings derived from stone or concrete. It makes the roof extra durable and gives the finished roof an organic-looking texture that stands up to close scrutiny. And the best part: like other metal roofing options, it requires minimal maintenance and will deliver excellent results for decades.
