Not all metal roofing is created equal. At CMG, we try to steer project owners away from using “budget metal roofing”. These “budget” systems utilize thinner gauged metal and sub-par paint systems. While initially, these roofs look great and offer the same benefits as a CMG steel roof, over time these budget roofs weather much quicker. Further, these sub-par paint systems quickly show signs of color-fading and paint chalking. At the end of the day, you get what you pay for with a “budget” metal roof.
Case and point, the cabin shown in this project profile had an existing budge metal roof. Over time, the roof showed signs of losing the battle to Mother Nature. Rather than replace it with another budget system, this homeowner elected to go with a superior standing seam roof that is sure to stand the test of time.
Above All Roofing used CMG’s 24ga Hartford Green steel to roll-form snap-lock roofing panels on site. These snap-lock panels are fastened to the roof using concealed clips. By using a concealed-fastener system, the roof is allowed to move slightly through thermal expansion. Further, these concealed fasteners offer virtually no chance for water damage and offer a very clean look. Above All Roofing did a terrific job of recommending the right system for the project, and installing it correctly.
