Whether you are a residential or commercial property owner, your roofing system includes a number of metal features. This is true whether you have asphalt shingles or a complete metal roofing system. Because every roof is different, it is often necessary to fabricate the metal features individually to match each specific job.
Metal fabrication is typically used to create attic vents, flashing, gutters and many other roof-related features due to its performance, durability and economical cost.
A roofing company with its own metal fabrication facilities and skilled personnel can create custom roof panels for a full roof as well as the accessories. Even if the structure has architectural features (such as turrets or complex lines) that might be problematic when using pre-fabricated panels, the metal shop can produce panels to facilitate the installation of a metal roof. It is also possible to incorporate special features to add “roof appeal.”
Many items produced in a metal fabrication shop are made from sheet metal, as it is easy to work with and economically priced. However, other metals, such as copper, can be used to provide additional options for customization.
Metal fabrication is an art that requires extensive experience and the proper tools. Experience, training and proper equipment is also needed to install metal roofing systems and metal accessories correctly. When fabricated and installed correctly, metal has an extremely long life, during which it will require little or no maintenance.
