Other Roofing Systems


Metal

Metal roofs are systems in which standing seams, R-panels, or corrugated metal panels are mechanically fastened to existing structure points. Metal roof provide architects, building designers, and owners with a variety of choices ranging from the type of metal to dozens of color options. Because of its excellent strength, durability, and fire resistance, metal roofs are the rising star of the energy-efficient and sustainable building movement.

Sustainable Roofing System

Sustainable roofing designs seek a minimal impact on the environment. Prismatic skylights, light tubes, and photovoltaic solar panels are an efficient way to reduce energy consumption. Cool roofs use a highly reflective surface to emit the radiant heat back instead of transferring the heat into the building below. Green roofs or “living roofs” absorb rainwater, provide insulation, and help lower urban air temperatures.
