Metal roofing is a popular choice for Montanans for its aesthetic appeal and ability to shed snow easily. Benefits of a metal roof include:
As a local roofing contractor, C’s Exterior Design has successfully completed thousands of roof projects over the last 25 years. Metal roofing requires specific skill sets for dealing with valleys, edges, chimneys and roof pitch. You need the most skilled roofing contractor to estimate your project accurately and expert installers to ensure you don’t have any leaks, open seams, uneven lines, peak or edging problems or excessive and costly waste.
One important aspect to cost when replacing your roof is the pitch. How steep the roof is will determine if the installers need to be roped off in harnesses and other safety features. A steeper roof requires installer to go a little slower to ensure everyone’s safety and take more care in handling materials.
The Tuff Rib metal roofing design features 36″ of coverage with five 3/4″ high ribs, spaced 9″ on center. It can be cut to any length depending on the expanse of roof you are covering from bottom edge to peak.
These metal panels are secured with fasteners, or screws, that are visible in rows across the roof surface.
Standing seam has self-sealing, raised ribs along the edges that interlock to provide a tight seal and for preventing water penetration and encourage runo-off.
The ribs are typically 3/4″ to 1 1/2″ high and 1/2″ to 3/4″ wide while the sheets are typically 9″ to 20″ wide. The length will vary depending on the expanse of roof you are covering from bottom edge to peak.
One of the benefits of this type of metal roofing is the that fasteners are hidden providing a distinctly different finished look.
