Roofing Rockwall Texas | We’re the Top Dawgs
Hey there. It’s Zach with roofing and siding Smiths roofing Rockwall Texas. Today I want to talk to you guys a little bit about roofing, specifically metal roofing. Have you ever wondered how much metal roofing costs, what the benefits over asphalt shingles would be if you had metal roofing installed on your home? We want to bring you information today to keep you informed up to date and in the know all about metal roofing. Today specifically we’re going to be talking about a three foot wide sheet metal. Now our metal is 26 gauge steel. We have a galvanized panel as well as painted. We know that many people like the look of both the differences. If you go with a galvalume finish, you have a 10 year finish warranty on this product. This product was originally intended to be used for commercial applications with low slope roofs where you don’t typically see the material unless you’re really far away.
Your galvalume has the kind of old barn metal finish look on it. It’s silver that starts to darken and change colors a little bit the older it gets. But as we’ve noticed here at roofing and siding Smiths, roofing Rockwall Texas, a lot of people love this look. We’ve installed this color panel on many homes, both in the country and in town.

Okay, Now let’s talk about panel selection. There’s a couple of different styles that are typically used for these three foot wide exposed fastener systems. We have the PBR panel also known as our panel. It’s a three foot watch sheet. It has a one foot spacing between the tall ridges as well as a couple of ripples in between each of the high ribs that help keep the product from oil caning. When you have wide flat sheets of metal, it has a tendency to want to warp an oil can, so to speak. This helps prevent that. It also helps with rigidity and strength. A 26 gauge steel sheet is a very sturdy panel. We’ve installed sheets up to 30 feet long and we’ve not had any of them banned or crinkle from handling as we carry them up onto the roof. The our panel or PBR panel, uh, has a one and a quarter inch height projection on the high ribs at roofing and siding Smiths your roofing Rockwall Texas contractor.
We know that this look fascinates many people. When is it a top choice among many who get the metal roof systems? We also have our panel lock plus. This sheet is also three foot wide. It has a nine inch space in between the high ribs and the high ribs are three quarters of an inch in height. This changes the look up a little bit. The profile slightly shorter has a few more ribs, but many people will feel like this is better for residential use because it’s not quite as bulky in commercial looking as roofing Rockwall Texas contractors, we know that this panel will bring you a longevity, great looks aesthetic appeal to your home.
