Roof System Considerations

Durability & Life Expectance

A typical metal roof can last 40-70 years, outperforming all other types of roofing. Metal roofing systems are engineered to sustain wind gusts up to 100 mph. Metal will resist insect damage, erosion, cracking and is coated with a Kynar 500 paint finish with a finish warranty of 30-40 years from fading, chalking or peeling.

Ultra Seam Metal System can be designed from 22, 24 or 26 gauge galvanized or Galvalume steel with clips, fasteners and flashings to meet the needs of any project

Initial Cost vs. Life Expectancy

The initial investment of a metal roof is more expensive than other roofing systems but the reduced maintenance costs and longevity of the roofing system more than offset the higher upfront expense in the long run.

Low Maintenance

Metal roof panels will not corrode or crack, spark or ignite fire and are impact resistant. While metal roofing requires very little maintenance, it will benefit from removal of debris/dirt and tightening of screws.

Adaptability & design Options

All of Ultra Seam’s roofing and wall panel systems are designed to meet the highest quality standards as well as the simplest installation requirements. Span over purlins or laid directly over rigid insulation and/or solid decking. They offer tools for design flexibility with high levels of aesthetic quality, including curving and continuous length panels.  Finishes are available in numerous Kynar 500 finishes as well as Galvalume, Zincalume, natural finish or copper.

Energy Efficiency & Cool Metal Roofs

Metal is one of the most energy efficient roofing materials available and can save up to 40% in energy costs and provide excellent insulation. Cool metal roofs are designed to optimize this capability with a reflectivity rating of 66% or higher. These systems can integrate with most photovoltaic solar collection systems.

Recycled Content and Recyclability

Metal roofing and wall panels contain recycled content and are 100% recyclable.
