Different Types of Metal Roofing Panels for Your Home
There are many different types of metal roofing panels for you to choose from for your home. Depending on your taste, budget and style of home, these things will help you decide which type of metal panel to purchase. Most homeowners choose the residential panel for a few good reasons. The residential panel is less expensive than other types of metal panels. In Baton Rouge, Lafayette and through Hammond and the north shore we have very standard types of homes. The residential panel is easy to work with and fits many styles of Louisiana homes.
If you would like a more expensive roof with better warranties, you can jump up to a perma-lok panel, secure-seam, mech-seam or a 5-V metal roofing panel. A few benefits of a standing seam metal panel are, no exposed fasteners and it is on a floating deck. One problem in the past with metal roofs has always been having to replace the screws after a few years. The screws would back out due to a few reasons, expansion of the metal roof over time. When a metal roof is cold in the morning and then heats up across the day, the metal would contract and then expand placing stress on the fasteners or screws. With the standing seam roof expansion of the metal roofing panels is not a problem and makes a great choice for a new metal roof.
