Ribbed Metal Roofing

Ribbed Metal Roofing

Union offers both exposed fastener metal roofing system and concealed fastener standing seam metal roofing systems for residential, commercial, and post-frame metal roofing applications. As the name implies, exposed fastener metal roofing systems use screw fastener system that are visible on the exterior of the metal roof surface after installation. These exposed fastener metal roofing systems are economical, and this type for metal roofing system has been in service for decades, and are extremely popular in a wide variety of residential and commercial metal roofing applications. In concealed fastener metal roofing systems such as our standing seam metal roofing system, the screws are completely concealed and protected by the steel roof surface. This metal roofing system gives standing seam panels very clean, aesthetically pleasing lines. The standing seam metal roofing system also exhibits the very best in weather resistance and durability since the metal roof fastener systems are not exposed to the outside elements. We offer the three primary types of standing seam metal roofing systems; screw flange, snap lock, and mechanically seamed system. Each of these standing seam metal roofing system designs uses a slightly different method to secure the panel to the metal roof.

Ribbed Metal Roofing

Over the years corrugated roofing systems have benefited from many aesthetic and “roof integrity” system specific improvements, which now makes it a considerable alternative to conventional asphalt shingle roofs that go into landfills after 15 years of service. Although metal roofing is more expensive than asphalt shingle, corrugated roofing is quite affordable compared to standing seam. There are now, many corrugated roofing systems that can be used for home re-roofing projects. However, keep in mind, that metal roofing systems with exposed fasteners may require re-tightening some every 10 years or so. Also, should you decide to invest in a corrugated roofing system, I recommend that you go with aluminum, or galvalume steel corrugated roof system coated with Kynar 500 coating, not the cheap acrylic paint finish, which will fade quickly.

Modern, corrugated metal roofing panels are primarily made out of galvanized steel (G-60 low-end, or G-90 better quality) in the form of U, V, Ribbed, 5 V crimp and similar metal panels. — Typically, corrugated metal and R panels are employed as metal roof or wall system comprised of 32 to 36 inches wide corrugated panels held in place by exposed screws / fasteners color-matched to the paint color of the metal panels. Caulking is used at connecting points of overlap in between the panels for water tightness.

Corrugated steel panel presented above is LEED certified, inexpensive roofing solution for commercial and industrial uses. It is light weight, provides solar reflectivity, and good thermal emmitance, which will help keep the building cool. The downside of using corrugated and ribbed metal roofing systems such as 5-v crimp panels, R panels, U panels, and V panels, is that most of these systems come with exposed fasteners. For comparison, standing seam metal panels have concealed fasteners, which offers higher degree of weather and water tightness, but standing seam is a significantly pricier option.

Modern corrugated metal panels offer superior corrosion-resistance, energy efficiency, and can provide an economical roofing and cladding solution for commercial, agricultural, industrial, and even residential uses. Corrugated metal panels are usually made from thin-gauge steel, usually a 29 or 26 gauge steel, which makes it economical and practical, when it comes to covering large areas of roofing surfaces. Corrugated metal roofs are more practical and longer lasting than asphalt shingle roofs, and they cost much less than standing seam or metal shingles.

Corrugated roofing panels can be made from aluminum, galvanized steel (G-60, or G-90 steel), galvalume coated steel, and stainless steel. When going for a long lasting economical solution, galvalume steel provides an optimal combination of cost effectiveness and material longevity and reliability. When finished with a Kynar 500 paint finsh, corrugated metal roofing can provide significant energy savings and qualify for LEED building credits issued by the US green building council.

Yes it can be. Since corrugated metal is one of the easiest metal roofing systems to install, this can therefore be a DIY job for a handy person, provided the installation would take place on a simple, gable-style roof.

Corrugated metal panels can also be made from galvanized, galvalume, stainless steel, and aluminum. Normally, a corrugated metal panel does not have a lot of thickness in terms of metal grade, which makes it quite economical and hence affordable, but it may well require some maintenance every once in a while, including the exposed fasteners re-tightening and potential re-coating applications.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Savannah from Perfect cover for our pergola. We wanted to match the cover over our spa to the one on our deck. We weren’t happy with the wood lattice we had for the roof, do we researched alternatives. The steel roofing panels worked so well on the Spa cover, we used them on the existing deck pergola. The online ordering was easy and the shipment arrived ahead of schedule. Thanks Home Depot. We purchased all of the lumber, anchors, screws and weatherproofing stain from a store less than two miles from our home. Talk about convenience, it’s always our first stop.

As you can see in a diagram above, 36 inch R panels are installed using a 4 inch overlap at a 32 inch mark. The exposed fasteners (usually galvanized steel screws color-matched to the panel, and combined with special rubber washers for water-tightness are required) are installed 12 inches on center, and then with 16 inches on center, creating a 12 and 16 inches overlap. The use of caulk at the panel connecting points is required as well, which sort of complicates the installation process, and reliance on caulk shows a major design flow of corrugated steel roofing system.
