Roof Styles Available for Metal Buildings
Metal buildings from Premier Metal Structures are known for their custom nature and tremendous strength. A major factor in both of these characteristics is the availability of different roof styles. To be specific, Premier Metal Structures offers three different roof styles, each with its own distinct traits and advantages. Selecting the right roof design for your needs is key!
Metal Building Roof Styles from Premier Metal Structures
Vertical Roof Style
Often considered the crème de la crème of metal building roof designs, vertical roofs are a stark departure from the shared characteristics of regular and A-frame horizontal roof styles. The radically different approach featured in vertical roof design creates an entirely new set of features and benefits that many Americans appreciate.
Features:The most notable feature of vertical roof design is—you guessed it—the vertical roof panels. The use of vertical panels is a noticeable departure from the horizontal panels used in regular and A-frame horizontal roofs, and it’s for a reason—vertical roof panels provide far more strength and weight-bearing capacity.
A-Frame Horizontal Roof Style
There’s nothing quite like building on a classic, and that’s exactly what A-frame horizontal roofs do. By starting with the regular roof design and tweaking it in keyways, A-frame horizontal roofs create a whole new set of features and benefits.
Features: Like regular roofs, A-frame horizontal roofs sport horizontal roof panels. To increase the weather resistance of these budget-friendly panels, A-frame horizontal roofs add extra bracing and framing to the design, further increasing strength. Also known as boxed-eave roofs, this style of metal building roof features eaves that aid in directing rain and snow off the roof and away from the building.
Regular Roof Style
The first roof style may be called “regular,” but it has plenty of benefits that make it anything but average. For many, this style is the most cost-effective option available.
Features: Regular roofs are easy to identify thanks to their basic design. They feature horizontal roof panels that typically curve to meet the walls of the building. This design is specifically engineered to increase the ease of production and decrease the cost and waste associated with manufacturing and installation. This style of roof generally adorns metal buildings located in mild climates that do not experience much inclement weather.
