Panel Metal roofing is growing in popularity due to its aesthetic appeal, low maintenance and lifespan. Our professional roofing crews are experienced and accredited in the installation of a large range of metal roofing types, and installation methods.


Houses in most neighborhood with metal looking roofs most likely are of the standing seam variety. Continuous panels run from the ridge of the roof all the way down to the eaves. Between the panels are seams connected by fasteners which are raised above the level of the metal roofing.  This is where we get the term standing seam, because the seam is raised or standing, as opposed to flush-mounted. Standing seam roofs are perfect for certain types of Contemporary, Country, or Key West style houses. The material is available in an array of gray, brown, forest green, and earthy red colors - more color options than you'll find with most other roof systems. 

The cost of Metal Panels is about $4.50-9.00/sq/ft.  It has an excellent lifespan, is very energy efficient, and has excellent wind, fire, ice dam, and earthquake resistance.  Metal is very tough--but it's not impervious to all hazards.  The sheet metal in this type of roofing can sometimes be penetrated by heavy falling limbs or dented by a severe hailstorm.
