Benefits of Different Sheet Metal Roofing Options


Sheet metal is a durable material used in many applications on home exteriors. It is often an ideal material for your home because of its strength and protection. Some metals are durable and resistant to dents while others are light and flexible and resistant to corrosion.

Custom Installations, your expert siding contractor, does all metal works in-house. Thus, we offer flexibility and customization for a proper fit on your home. Here’s a look at the types of sheet metal roofing we offer as well as their benefits.

Flat Seam

This roofing system works well on low-pitch and flat roofs. They are also chosen for domes, barrel vaults, and other curved roofs. Flat seam roofs are sheets of metal with seams folded over one another. They are then sealed with a special machine called a seamer. This crimps the panels together making them watertight. This unique installation allows them to resist high winds.

Copper Work

With its inherently attractive color, copper provides curb appeal to your home. It is often used in gutters, roofing, weathervanes and other accents. It is very durable lasting up to 50 years or more with regular maintenance. It is also resistant to fire, mildew and hail.

Being light weight, it won’t stress your home structures like other, heavier metals. Copper reflects sunlight and its heat, resulting in lower heating and cooling costs. Custom Installations has often worked with copper in many roofing services. By nature, copper colors turn into a stunning rustic green patina over time. There are ways to arrest colorization, if you prefer its original clean color.
