If corrugated metal panels are what you are seeking, then Home Depot is not the place to shop. There is an asphalt corrugated offering, but that is outside the scope of our article. Home Depot carries mainly ribbed style paneling and some standing seam options. In other words, metal roofing for the home, as well as other possible exterior applications.

When it comes to exposed fastener metal roof systems, Lowe’s has a small amount of corrugated and ribbed style panels. They primarily carry two manufacturers, the popular Fabral brand and the steadfast Union Corrugating Company (established in the 1950’s). The product offerings from Lowe’s by these 2 metal roofing companies are nearly identical, and the quality is essentially the same. The gauge for their corrugated metal panels is around 31, and for the ribbed panels, it is 29, possibly as low as 26.

Whereas our research shows Lowe’s having limited options (under 10) for metal roofing panels, Home Depot offers at least 25 options, and more when taking color into account. Home Depot carries 2 brands when it comes to metal roof paneling: again the popular Fabral brand as well as Metal Sales, which is the predominant offering from Home Depot. Metal Sales is a manufacturer that’s been in business roughly as long as Fabral, though not as well known.

The important thing though is the web pages for these manufacturers shows that the retail stores are carrying a very limited selection of what each offers. Looking at the Metal Sales page, you’ll notice they have a number of concealed fastener metal roofing systems, though Home Depot (not to mention Lowe’s) carries none. Sticking with the Metal Sales product page (for residential), each panel is nicely presented, with pictorial measurements, available steel gauges, and a number of related resources (specification type sheets) to name a few things. Below their Product Finder is a link for “Colors and Finishes.” Again, Metal Sales was the only product line at both stores that has more than one color offering, and their main website shows at least 3 times the color options Home Depot carries for Metal Sales products.

Also with corrugated metal panels, Lowe’s makes it a point to say these panels are ideal for: garages, patio covers and utility buildings. Thus, not so ideal for residential roofing, but that is obviously up to the home owner. All Lowe’s corrugate panels are noted as not impact resistant. This means impact from heavy weather (i.e hail) or from person walking on it. Either could damage or dent the material. Not that this is probable, but is indication of what limitations the buyer may wish to place upon it, before making a buying decision. With corrugated panels, there is no warranty for the material, and the rationale there (our guess) is because the material is not premium, thus not intended to last say more than 20 years. It could last longer with proper installation and routine maintenance, but is essentially understood to be decent material at low cost, for secondary remodeling projects.

b) The corrugated metal style is more of a constant rippled pattern, similar to how ceramic tiles appear on a rooftop. Corrugated metal panels are a popular or traditional design choice for sheds. Because exposed fasteners are easy enough for anyone to work with, they are not limited to roofs only. Many home exterior remodeling projects will make use of them in a variety of ways, such as a siding material. Do enough research on your own, and you’ll see home owners who’ve discovered interior uses for metal panels in ways that may be bold, but certainly can add character to any living space seeking a industrial appearance.

Like all things roofing, a professional contractor is your best bet for installation of metal roof. This article, however, is taking a different approach as we focus on products you can obtain through Home Depot and/or Lowe’s. A local carpenter or professional roofer may still be how the product gets installed, but depending on the home remodeling project and your needs, the DIY approach is within reach for many metal roofing applications.

In our research, Lowe’s offers less options for metal roofing than Home Depot. It doesn’t appear to provide any standing seam panels, and the color availability is significantly less than what you’d find at Home Depot. With Lowe’s online, the information tends to vary by region, thus challenging, for us, to convey information that may not be accurate for all readers.

I was building a sweet chicken coop for the family and was planning on going with some architectural composition roofing materials. After a little looking around (and thanks to a few of the other reviews here) decided to go to my local store and take a look at this product. I was a little surprised at how thin the material was. Since it was for a chicken coop – I decided that wouldn't be a big deal. It was easy to install, easy to move around (since it was pretty light) and made quick work of the project. Since the Chicken Coop I'm building is very unique (looks like a cartoon house – not a square angle anywhere – on purpose) – it was necessary that i cut this material to fit. I used a metal cutoff disc on a grinder. It was super easy to cut. I've not used any metal roofing before – but am happy with the choice.
