R-rib is the answer when you need maximum strength. Its ribs are 1 ¼” tall, a full half inch higher than those of G-rib, giving extra rigidity in both roofing and siding applications.

Benefits of Metal Roofing

Greater Durability

With our lifetime transferrable warranty, building with our metal means long term savings.

Lightweight

Metal is light in relation to its surface area. This means that buildings require fewer materials—roof trusses can be spaced further apart and purlins can be used instead of sheathing. For re-roofing, metal can often be put on top of the existing roof, saving removal costs.

Resistant to fire and wind

Metal roofing resists fire extremely well and is designed to hold up in strong winds.

Energy efficiency

Metal roofing reflects heat, reducing cooling costs in the summer.

Easy installation

Metal’s large panels allow relatively quick installs by accomplished contractors or handy homeowners.

Many styles and colors

Metal comes in a wide variety of styles, patterns, and colors, making it easy to match with your home or building’s design.

Metal Roofing FAQs

Metal roofs and siding can last from 40-70 years, depending on the quality of materials and installation. They are known for their durability, resistance to environmental factors, and low-maintenance requirements compared to asphalt shingles.

Standing seam is different from panels like G-rib and R-rib because its panels have concealed fasteners, providing a sleek, modern appearance and improved weather resistance. The other kinds of panels have exposed fasteners and more traditional, wavy patterns. Standing seam costs more to install, but those costs result in higher performance and greater aesthetics.

It is possible to install metal panels over existing roofing and siding. However, you must consider factors like the current materials’ condition, proper ventilation, and local building codes. It’s a good idea to check with a contractor to evaluate the situation before proceeding.

Metal roofs and siding can be more energy-efficient than other materials because they are highly reflective. This reduces solar heat gain, leading to lower energy bills.

While some homeowners have the skills to install metal roofing and siding, it is usually better to hire a professional contractor since installation requires proper measuring, cutting, and fastening to ensure durability, weather resistance, and a quality appearance.
