Metal roofing has gained incredible popularity in the last few years. Because of green construction and the need for sustainability in increasing hostile climates, new and used metal roofing has become the top trending 21st century roofing choice. More durable and versatile than traditional asphalt roofing, metal roofs save energy and offer superior protection. When choosing metal roofing, one aspect to consider is size. What size do you need for your project?
Metal Roofing Panel Sizes
What are the standard sizes for metal roofs? Measurements differ depending on the materials, style, and manufacturer. The lightweight galvanized steel and aluminum is just one reason why so many contractors used metal roofing for commercial, industrial, and residential buildings.
What size do you need for your project? Corrugation ranges from 31 to 100 millimeters. Metal panels have stock sizes of 24, 22, 20, and 18 gauge. Length varies greatly from a couple of meters to several. Finding the right size to fit your roof can be a daunting task. If you choose the wrong size, you may end up with a hole in your roof or wasted materials.
Another important point to consider are the codes requirements for your area. Speak with one of our metal roofing professionals about which size you need for your project. We will be happy to answer your important questions.
Custom Metal Roofs
Precut metal roofs come in many sizes. However, many times choosing custom metal roofs makes the most sense. Avoid waste and lost in labor costs by choosing the exact size. Order only what you need for the project. Standing seam panels can easily be custom cut to fit your specifications. Avoid overages and waste.
Many homeowners and business owners opt for shingles instead of standard metal roofpanels. Why? Shingles imitate more traditional roofing options. They have a beautiful elegant aesthetic and have many style and color options. A metal shingle imitates the look of wood or asphalt without the worry of rot, fire, or termites. A typical metal shingle measures around 31 centimeters long and one hundred centimeters long.
