Metal Roofing

Metal roofing is an amazing roofing product.  Metal is durable and practically maintenance free.  The standing seam application is the one used by Radiant Roofing.  The roofing material comes in coils and is formed to  exact dimensions on the jobsite.   The pans or panels are screwed at the top and screwed with clips on the sides.  The drip edge is screwed and then the bottoms of the panels are crimped around the drip edge.  The seams between the panels are then rolled together, like a cinnamon roll, with a seaming machine.  The roof, when complete, performs very well in all types of extreme weather and is virtually leak proof.

Galvalume or Painted Metal Roof?

Galvalume is the trade name for a sheet steel product having a highly corrosion resistant coating of aluminum and zinc.  Galvalume has the natural, vintage look of steel that will fade somewhat over time.  Galvalume carries a 20-year manufacturer’s warranty.

Our metal for painted roofs is supplied by Berridge Manufacturing.  Prefinished Berridge products are fabricated from either pretreated G-90 galvanized steel or pretreated Galvalume steel coils.  All colors applied by Berridge are premium fluoropolymer coatings produced with full strength Kynar 500 or Hylar 500TM resin.  Our painted roofs carry a twenty year manufacturer’s guarantee against cracking, peeling and fading.  Most painted metal roofs will generally cost about $35/sq more than Galvalume.

The choice between Galvalume or painted metal usually comes down to desired look or color of roof or price.  Both carry a 20-yr manufacturer’s warranty, however, painted metal is easier to recoat or touch up at the end of its 20 year life, in essence making it a lifetime roof.  Radiant Roofing provides a 7 year workmanship warranty on all complete metal re-roofsFull warranty details provided by request.
