Metal Roofing fulfills the building owner’s need for durable, puncture-resistant protection against the weather while working in concert with the forces of nature.
Metal roofing has an established track record in new construction, where it has been used in some 50% of all low-rise commercial and industrial buildings erected in the last several years.
Yes. Fiberglass blankets are the most common insulation material in standing seam metal re-roofing projects.
On some projects, un-faced fiberglass insulation is simply laid directly on the existing roof surface before insulation blankets of the new standing seam roof. For other projects, insulation blankets are installed directly under the metal panels and stretched over supporting members. Foam insulation blocks are often used to separate the panels from the purlins to prevent thermal short-circuiting and condensation from forming. The roof expands and contracts independent of the insulation, giving the roof surface a floating action.
