What Is Steel Roofing?

If you’re looking for a long-lasting, highly durable roof, then steel roofing might be the perfect option! We install three different types of steel roofs. These include ribbed roofs, standing seam roofs, and stone-coated roofs. The style of steel chosen generally depends on what type of building you have and the location of the property. For example, ribbed steel is great for rural areas on structures, such as homes and pole barns. Standing seam steel roofs are well suited for rural area homes and inner-city homes. Stone-coated steel is great for both inner-city homes and rural homes.


Ribbed roofs use exposed fastener metal roof panels. Exposed fastener metal roof panels are a cost-effective option for commercial, residential, and agricultural buildings. These roof panels are more affordable than concealed panels because the material is thinner and can be installed over an existing shingled roof. We make sure to color-coordinate the roof and the fasteners so that they are less visible once installed.


Standing seam roofs use concealed fastener metal roof panels. These roof panels are commonly used in residential buildings because they are more aesthetically appealing than exposed fastener roofs. Since this option provides a sleek and concealed design, they lead to less maintenance over the lifetime of the roof.


Increase your curb appeal with a highly durable stone-coated roof. This style of roof is press-formed from Galvalume®* steel and coated with adhesive, which allows the natural granite stone granules to be embedded into the base coat. This helps to create a UV-resistant stone coating, which results in world-class protection. Choose from five different stone-coated designs based on the architecture of your building.
