A metal roof can extend the life of your building, if you pay attention to the design details at the beginning. It’s essential to understand the complexities and unique advantages of a metal roof before installation starts.
Let’s breakdown the elements of an effective metal roof design. We’ll assume you have a large residential roof or commercial building, and that you want your new roof to last 50+ years.

5 Things to Remember

  1. Plan your roofing project with your location’s weather conditions in mind (snow build up, hail, wind, etc.)
  2. Ask the team at Nielsen Roofing what options you have for materials depending on location, climate, budget l
  3. Discuss whether you need open-framing or a solid substrate for the “deck” underneath your metal roofing material
  4. Plan for key areas of safety and longevity (wind, water, sealing, impact resistance, fire, etc.)
  5. Chat with us about any unique requirements (roof foot traffic, gutter design, points of penetration for piping, intersecting planes)

Designing the Roof You Need

There are many options available when designing a roofing installation. Here are some of the key terms we can help to explain:
  • Standing seam metal roofing
  • Shake & tile metal roofing panels
  • Corrugated galvanized steel
  • Aluminum roofing
  • Galvanized steel roof
  • Classic copper

Metal Roofs Last Longer

Investing in the longevity of your building is always a wise decision. Whether you are ensuring continued use and comfort for decades, or improving your commercial property’s appearance and resale value, metal roofing can’t be beat. Prevent the water penetration, rot, mold, pest, and fire problems of wood and asphalt shingles with a new metal roof.
