Metal Roofing Solutions – What you need to know
Part of our mission here at Northface Construction is to be a sustainable company in multiple ways. To help continue to fulfill that promise, we offer metal roofing solutions for residential and commercial roofing applications. We pride ourselves in being consciously pursuing economic sustainability, social sustainability and environmental sustainability. The metal roofing solutions are an opportunity to fulfill those pursuits from another angle.
Metal roofing can come in many forms, shingle, corrugated sheet, standing seam etc. The benefits of metal are that it is highly resistant to weather in severe applications, is energy efficient, has longevity in its lifespan and has a wonderfully clean look to it. As an Elk River based roofing contractor, we strive to satisfy all the possible needs of our clients who need roofing solutions in the Minneapolis metro and surrounding areas.
When analyzing a possible metal roofing project there are a few key things to consider such as; what type of profile you are interested in having, what color selection, what gauge thickness of metal, and the budget you would like to maintain. In comparison to asphalt shingle roofs, usually metal roofs will cost more depending on the application or circumstance. What will determine the cost of your metal roofing project will depend on what type of profile you would like for your metal such as; corrugated, standing seam etc. The gauge thickness of the metal will have an effect on the price of the project, the thicker the metal the more costly the project will be. Some other factors that can effect the cost of a metal roof are how high, steep or complicated is the roof of the structure. The higher, steeper, and more complicated the roof is to install the new metal roofing the costlier the install will be.
Typically a corrugated or commonly referred to as an exposed fastener roof or pole barn roof is the most efficient type of metal roofing in regards to cost. This style metal roofing can be done with less complicated bends, and easier installation. This style is laid in sheets and screws with watertight grommets are used to fasten the material to the roof decking.

Another common option is standing seam metal roofing. This type of metal roofing is installed using hidden flanges that are fastened to the roof decking and hidden by the next piece giving a smooth clean look to the roof. These require a little more custom bending work and slower install than a corrugated roof install so they tend to be more costly than a corrugated style metal roof.
