Chicken Coop DIY Project

Metal roofing isn’t just for the professionals

Pictured here is a chicken coop in the rolling hills of Southern Wisconsin. Put together by a couple of DIY’ers, this chicken coop features CMG’s Ultra-Flange panels fabricated from 24ga Silver Metallic. While we’d recommend leaving larger projects to licensed contractors, this project was completed in a weekend by a couple with zero sheet metal experience. With CMG’s standard 35-year finish warranty, these chickens are guaranteed to have a roof over their heads for life!

Next time you’ve got a small project, call your sales representative to talk about all your steel options!


CMG’s steel in Silver Metallic was used to complete this roof.

Burnished Slate has an Ultra-Cool Rating of 55.6% for reflectivity and .84 for emissivity. It has an SRI rating of 63.

"CMG provided this novice carpenter the experience and expertise needed to turn an average chicken coop into something spectacular that will last longer than any alternative"
