In 1883, American inventor Charles Fritz created the first working selenium solar cell.
In 1888, a scientist from Russia named Aleksandr Stoletov built and patented the first true solar cell. In 1891, Baltimore inventor Clarence Kemp patented the first commercial solar water heater. In 1905 solar power was brought into the world’s spotlight when famed physicist Albert Einstein published a paper on the photoelectric effect and how light packets carry energy.
Further innovation would come in the wake of Einstein’s momentous discoveries regarding the underlying mechanisms of the photoelectric effect. This new knowledge enabled Bell Labs to produce the first modern solar cell in 1954. While this project pioneered solar energy technology as we know it today, it was terribly inefficient. It cost $250 to generate a mere 1 watt of electricity, compared to $2 – $3 per watt from coal plants of the time.
Solar cells at that stage were still suitable for use in space, and in 1958, the Vanguard 1 spacecraft used solar as a backup energy source. A year later, a solar cell was developed with 10% efficiency, but still saw little usage outside of space flight.
Oil shortages fueled solar power’s growth
The early 1970s brought a surge of renewed interest in solar energy’s potential as a renewable source of electricity.
At the time, a worldwide oil crisis and growing environmental concerns led to new efforts to develop alternatives to fossil fuels. The advancements in solar efficiency decreased the price per watt from over $100 to about $20.
The 2000’s and 2010’s have brought even more advancement to the world of solar energy technology. The cost has dropped dramatically, with efficiency increasing. Today, nearly one million homes in the United States use solar power for all or part of their electricity.
The Future of Solar: New Improvements in Photovoltaic Cells
Today, PV cells have around 15% efficiency.
This means that 85% of the light they receive is not converted into usable electricity. Scientists are continuously experimenting with new technologies that can boost efficiency, making solar panels more effective. New developments like light-sensitive nanoparticles and gallium arsenide may potentially be able to capture sunlight more efficiently than existing PV cells, and advancements in solar energy storage technology are also being developed. Just recently, Ohio State University researchers created a solar battery that is both 20% more efficient and 25% less expensive than those on the market today.
As solar technology continues to improve, new solar cells made from novel materials will continue to become more efficient at converting light into electricity. Combined with increasingly lower cost, solar power is poised to be one of the most important renewable energy technologies of the coming decades.
Solar power was first discovered by a very old bacteria. The sun has been the driving force for all life on Earth since the first microbes developed the capability for photosynthesis, around 2.3 billion years ago.
Ironically, this led to a devastating environmental catastrophe known as the Great Oxygenation Event1, caused by the emission of oxygen gas as a byproduct of photosynthesis. While these first solar powered organisms caused a mass extinction, solar power today might hold the key to preventing a planetary crisis.
Where did modern solar power get started?
The roots of modern solar power can be traced back to 1839.
It was at this time that a 19 year old French physicist, A.E. Becquerel, whose focus up to that point had been related to phosphorescence and luminescence, discovered the photovoltaic effect. He found that when gold or platinum plates were submerged in a solution, then exposed to uneven solar radiation, an electrical current was generated. This discovery was seized upon by scientists across the globe.
In the early 1860’s, a French mathematician named August Mouchet began registering patents for solar powered engines. In 1878, Mouchet and his assistant Abel Pifre who would go on to develop the first solar powered printing press exhibited their solar powered engine at the Universal Exhibition in Paris, winning a gold medal for their efforts. Unfortunately, Mouchet’s work was ahead of its time. The French government determined that solar power was not economically viable, and they terminated his funding. Fortunately, solar technology trudged on.
Coronavirus is a global pandemic. It’s affecting our health, and the economy. It’s also affecting the roofing industry, so contractors must be ready.
Prevention is the key. As the virus spreads, employers need to take preventative measures. The number of cases is rising and you need to be prepared. Employers must have procedures in place for their workers to maintain health and well-being.
OSHA has taken initiative to remind employers of their existing standards, focusing on OSHA’s Personal Protective Equipment standards. There is an OSHA webpage that provides employers with all current information on the virus. This is to help them establish guidelines and procedures for their workplace.
Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s advisory is also a great
resource. This features a “Pandemic Preparedness” guide for employers.
One key feature is that employers have a broader scope for questioning their
employees on health issues. This is normally prohibited. They can request
information about travel or when employees are showing flu-like symptoms. They
can request for employees to have their temperature taken and can send them
home at their discretion.
These measures can only be taken however when an employer feels the employee is a direct threat. Any information gained cannot be shared and adverse actions such as termination cannot be done.
The Affect on the Supply Chain
The virus in China is impacting the world in terms of production. Global markets and supply chains are feeling the strain. Mass quarantines, curfews, and travel restrictions are crippling Chinese shipping. This is affecting the roofing industry too. Specifically, the most drastic effects can be seen in the supply of solar roofing. Production has almost come to a stop as China is where 70% of these panels are produced.
Other materials are also seeing a decline in production. Aluminum, plastic, timber, and rubber have all declined. The lack of workforce has been the driving reason. Currently, manufacturing plants in China are believed to only be operating at 30%. This will continue to hit the roofing industry until the situation improves. U.S. roofing companies can expect to begin feeling higher costs and price fluctuations, material shortages, logistics breakdowns, order cancellations, and extended delays in product fulfillment and shipping.
Ultimately, project completion will slow which affects suppliers and project
managers. Roofers are advised to begin preparing for these effects now by
evaluating their own supply chains from end to end to pinpoint vulnerabilities.
You need to identify potential alternative supply sources, preparing for costs
to soar, and making sure you have adequate provisions to protect against
increased costs, supply chain delays and interruptions.
Incorporate Force Majeure Clauses
This needs to be in your contracts. This allocates the risk of
performance if performance is delayed indefinitely or stopped as a result of
circumstances outside of a party’s control. It also provides notice to
the parties of the types of events that would cause a project to be suspended
or that would excuse performance such as coronavirus and supply issues.
The party impacted by the force majeure is protected by temporarily
suspending or terminating the contract due to unexpected and unavoidable
events. The event must be beyond the control of the contracting parties, it
cannot be anticipated, foreseeable, or expected, and the event must be unavoidable.
At this time, the coronavirus pandemic and its global economic impact
are covered under this.
The following elements should be addressed in a force majeure
What events are considered force majeure?
Who is responsible for suspending performance?
Who is allowed to invoke the clause?
Which contractual obligations are covered by the clause?
How is the inability to perform determined?
What if the Event Continues for an Extended Period?
If your company already has this clause in place, it would still be wise to
review those provisions to make sure they are clear. Make sure terms such as
“widespread epidemic,” “pandemic,” and/or “public health emergency” are added.
Since courts will interpret the clause based on the wording, these key phrases
need to be included.
Price Increase Provisions
Contractors need to consider adding terms to their contracts to protect
themselves from labor and material price increase. A price acceleration
provision allows the roofing contractor to adjust the contract price to reflect
the revised actual cost of the labor and materials. The price
acceleration clause is usually limited to increases in materials over the
course of a single project.
The contractor also needs to provide the prime contractor or owner with
evidence supporting the claim for additional compensation. Price acceleration
clauses also sometimes contain a termination for convenience provision. This
will enable the contractor to escape a contract if the cost of materials has
increased too much.
A roofing contractor may find it difficult to include a
price acceleration clause in its contract with a prime contractor because both
the owner and the prime contractor are looking for fixed prices initially. In
this situation, the roofing contractor should consider buying and storing
materials prior to construction to avoid any potential increases later on.
Requesting a deposit to purchase the requested materials is also a
good idea. The subcontractor should consider requesting that the prime
contractor also add a similar provision in its contract. This way the prime
contractor can seek additional funds from the owner for any labor or price
acceleration that occurs throughout the project.
Roofing contractors should also be cautious when providing firm bids for projects. Especially, if they will not begin construction for a few months. In these cases, the contractor faces additional exposure for any increases in the costs of labor and materials caused by the coronavirus pandemic. Estimating these jobs thoughtfully, and conservatively can potentially make or break a roofing contractor. Especially since the extent of the repercussions of the coronavirus on the market is not yet known. Since there is no current vaccine for the coronavirus and the number of infected individuals continues to rise, there is no way to know when the economy will normalize. Roofing contractors need to take steps to mitigate their risks and protect themselves. As the virus remains at large, there will be impacts to the U.S. construction industry, after the shock wave from China’s supply lines spreads.
The success of a roofer depends on the satisfaction of their customers.
To satisfy customers, a roofer needs to know exactly what their clients
want and need. This involves getting detailed accounts from the
customers as well as having a broader sense of the industry trends.
Knowing what to offer your customers, will help keep you ahead of the
competition. When it comes to knowing what customers want from
their roofers, homeowners have identified three top responses;
education, budget help, and value pricing.
Quotes and Research: the majority of homeowners do not conduct any research before getting a roofing project done. 33 percent have admitted not doing any research at all though. This means that educating your customers is an important task for any roofer that wants to be successful. Do not assume that they are aware of all the facts involved with roofing projects, and be prepared to educate them so they can make informed decisions regarding their investment. This ensures you earn their trust and their business.
Budgeting: Considering that minimal research is done, it is also safe to assume that little budgeting has been done either. 75 percent of homeowners do not budget for roofing projects and end up requesting and accepting quotes that are too high. In some cases, a person needs an immediate solution so a budget may not be an issue, but when there is time for a restoration project, customers need to be educated about potential costs so as not to waste time or money. To gain a competitive advantage start offering rebates and discounts as well as consider offering financing.
Value pricing: One of the top reasons a roofer is ultimately selected is the pricing. Along with having personal references, customers prefer contractors with value pricing. Praise from previous customers as well as a solid online presence with reviews and ratings boost your reputation. Being able to provide these top-rated services at an affordable price only solidifies your position. Many homeowners only get one quote before starting a project, so you need your quote to make an impression every time. Be clear and precise with your pricing, breaking down all elements involved with the roofing process.
Roofing techniques and materials
have remained largely the same over the past decade. Obviously, the advent of
solar power cells had caused a small rift, but this technology was integrated
into the roofing industry relatively smoothly thanks in part to hardworking
contractors who sought out the right talent to perform solar installations.
Contractors are always on a quest to cut costs and increase the structural
integrity of every project, but when it comes to roofing, it can be difficult
to decide which material is best for your project, especially when weighing the
pros and cons of metal roofs and asphalt shingles.
In this article, we will compare and
contract metal roofs and asphalt shingles to help you determine which is best
for your next project.
Cost and Lifespan
Asphalt is one of the least
expensive roofing materials. The average lifespan of asphalt shingles is 15 to
20 years. Asphalt has remained an important roofing material despite changes in
the construction industry. The Metal Roofing Alliance (MRA) and the Asphalt
Roofing Manufacturers Association (ARMA) suggest replacing asphalt shingles
after 20 years.
Metal roofing is significantly more
expensive than asphalt. However, the cost is justified when you consider the
extended lifespan of metal roofs, which average over 50 years. Alternatives to
asphalt and metal roofs include tile, slate, and shake.
Asphalt shingles are typically
considered an inexpensive option that focuses on functionality overs style;
however, the market has abandoned traditional three-tab shingles in favor of
laminated designer shingles, sometimes dubbed “architectural shingles.”
Laminated designer shingles can resemble more expensive roofing materials like
shake and slate. This is one of the most popular roofing materials. The
residential roofing market continues to shift toward laminates. Laminated
asphalt shingles have added dimensionality because of extra layers of
fiberglass mat, which create a wood shake-like appearance. Laminated shingle
styles are also typically offered with longer warranties and better wind
Metal roofs have also improved their
aesthetic with stamped-panel metal shingles that look like shake, slate, and
tile. A metal roof doesn’t have to be silver or gray. They can come in a
variety of colors and styles.
Resiliency is defined as “the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties;
toughness.” A resilient roof can handle being walloped by a severe storm and
doesn’t crumble under the pressure of melting ice or a minor earthquake. What
causes asphalt to be so resilient? SBS-modified or “rubberized” shingles
improve impact resistance and ensure that shingles stay put when conditions get
worse. New advances have resulted in asphalt shingles that can protect homes
from nearly everything, even algae.
Metal roofs can withstand winds exceeding 140 miles per hour, which is the
equivalent of an F2 tornado. However, the most impressive aspect of metal roofs
is their ability to resist fires. With wildfires scorching various parts of the
country each year, builders are turning to metal roofs to give new and existing
homes a fighting chance against the torrid dry season. Metal roofing is
typically designated with a Class A fire rating, which means it is “nearly
impenetrable” to moisture while resisting impacts from hail and debris. With
improved coatings that help resist corrosion, metal roofing is safer than ever
One major advancement in asphalt shingles is improvements to the Solar
Reflectance Index (SRI) which includes metrics for reflectance and thermal
emittance. Adding asphalt granules with light-reflecting pigments can increase
the solar reflective value of a roof ten times over. This type of roof, deemed
“Cool Roofing” is designed specifically to reflect solar energy, not absorb it.
This eases the burden on the home’s cooling systems and reduces wear and tear
on the roof. Comparatively, the highly reflective surface of metal roofing
typically provides a 30 percent cost saving on cooling when compared to other
Quite often buildings have equipment on the roof. The roof is a great place to keep bulky equipment as it is out of the way and for the most part, out of sight. Depending on where you stand though, the equipment can look very unsightly. Big, bulky units can detract from the appeal and appearance of your building, especially if any investors happen to be in the area. As important as it is to find space for your equipment, it is equally important to remember that the appearance of your building matters to partners, business prospects, and customers. Your brand and reputation could be at stake. Ventilation, heating, and electrical equipment are necessary components of a building, but this doesn’t mean they have to be out n the open for all to see. Investing in roof screens allows you to protect your brand and mage, by effectively hiding the bulky and unsightly equipment that your building needs.
What Screens Can Help You Hide?
roof screens can hide equipment from sight, thus protecting the appeal
of your building and brand. There is a lot of equipment that can be
hidden with the installation of a quality roof screen.
– These are typically bulky and lined up in rows, but are necessary for
climate and temperature management for the building interior.
Roof Exhaust Ventilation Fans –
These are needed to pull dirty air from the building and allow fresh
air inside. Bigger buildings have more of these and the more you have
the uglier the roof looks.
– These extract unwanted heat from various places to reduce the
temperature of the water. These are prone to rust which makes them very
Ducts and Pipework – Always associated with HVAC units and other roofing equipment, you can often see ducts and pipes from ground level.
– Often used on flat roofing and are necessary for accessing roof
equipment. While functional, these are not great to look at especially
when located near the edges of the building.
– Many forms of equipment come with platforms to raise them from the
roof surface. The framework and equipment are more visible because of
this and when they also have guardrails, they are even more distracting.
– As green energy becomes more popular, many buildings invest in solar
panels. While the panels are not ugly and offer a unique look, the
supports, frames, and electrical connections are not pleasant to look
– Antennas, cellular communication units, and satellite dishes are
necessary for communication but do nothing for the building look. You
may not be able to hide a tall antenna, but a screen will definitely
cover the bulky equipment at the base.
equipment discussed above is required for the efficient functioning of
any commercial or industrial building, but it can take away from the
appearance and potentially your brand. Investing in roof
screens will help to protect your image as it keeps the bulky units from
sight. They can also serve as additional protection from adverse
weather. Screen designs and materials vary so you can choose what suits
your building and brand best. You can even add your company logo to the
screens too. Call us today to discuss your screen options and we will make sure your roof looks its best without costing your reputation.
We work with local reputable roof screen manufacturers and we’re able to build custom screens as well. Contact us and let us know how we can help!
After all the battles that have been fought and won in the solar war, renewable energy advocates are finally bringing solar energy to the forefront of mainstream discussion. And with the recent advancements of solar photovoltaic technology, going solar is cheaper to the homeowner than ever before—even outpricing coal! This is allowing homeowners to find all of the long-term financial benefits to going solar more immediately achievable.
Having said this, there is still a
qualification process that is necessary to approve residential and
commercial solar projects. Below I will break down all of the basic
qualifications that must be met in order to move forward with a
transition to solar energy.
REQUIREMENTS FOR GOING SOLAR
Be the Legal Home or Business Owner: Before anything else, in order to go solar you will have to be the home or business owner. The reason is simple, if your name is not the name of on the title, then you cannot legally sign for the installation. However, there is still a chance for renters to go solar. Read our blog about that one!
Solid Roof or Extra Land for Ground Mount: After we have established homeownership, we need to make sure your property is adequate to install solar. Is your roof safe to hold solar panels? If not, we do provide roofing services as well. There is also the option of a ground mount installation if you have extra property beside your home.
Property in Solar-Friendly Location: If you’re some place that rains or snows 5 days a week, solar might not be the best choice for you. Also, if there is shade from a tree or building next to your property that is blocking the area where we would install solar panels, that could sabotage your solar energy production. So your property needs to be evaluated to make sure you are receiving the highest value for your money.
Cash or 650+ Credit Score: Most homeowners that go solar take a loan of 10, 15, or 20 years. The better your credit score, the better your chance of getting approved for a solar loan and also the lower your interest rate will be. 650 is generally the lowest credit score accepted for full approval, but we recommend getting your score over 700 just to get a better term. If you want to pay in cash, then your credit score wouldn’t play a role as approval for financing will not be needed.
Net Metering/Net Billing or Purchase Battery Storage: When you go solar, your solar electric system will overproduce some days and underproduce other days. You don’t want to lose that extra electricity. It is rightfully yours and some months you may need it to offset your power bill. This is why you your utility company must provide net metering or net billing. Read the previous blog to learn more about how each of those two utility programs can be an integral part of your experience. If you want to go completely off-grid, a battery storage system and possibly even a backup power generator might be the option you are looking for, but it will naturally cost more for the extra equipment.
Have Power Bill with 6–12 Month kWh Graph ready: Once all the other criteria are met, we’ll need to customize your solar estimate. A blog was written as well about why every solar quote is unique. We’ll need to look at your power bill to determine your monthly kWh usage. This will help us determine the system size which is most accurate for you.
So to summarize, most homeowners with good credit and little to no shade can be perfect candidates for solar PV technology, but there is no guarantee. Unlike other companies who will sell you anything to help their bottom line, we go through this careful vetting process to make sure you are best positioned for long-term value, vanishingly low utility bills, and decades of energy independence. If the items on the preceding list apply to you, we look forward to helping you take advantage of this great opportunity to go solar!
Installing fascia board can be a plus to your roof. If you see your fascia board rotting away then it’s probably time to replace it.
There are several advantages of having fascia board on your roof. One of the main reasons is aesthetics. It gives your home that detailed look everyone is looking for.
What is Fascia Board?
The main reason you would install fascia board on your home is to secure your gutter that runs along the bottom of your roof. We have also found that properly installed fascia board can increase your home’s value because of the attractiveness it brings to the home.
Always choose quality wood for your fascia board
Avoid going cheap. You will want to install quality wood for several reasons:
You don’t want your wood to decay quickly having to replace it more often than necessary.
Choose quality wood with grains. This will keep the fascia board from splitting.
Depending on your local area these are the types of wood we recommend:
Cedar or Cypress
Natural decay resistant.
Construction wood from pine, or fir.
Aluminum can also be used with your wood to give it a nice trim and allow it to last longer.
Use high caliber nails
Whether you are installing the fascia board or you hire a contractor we recommend you invest in the highest quality galvanized building nails. We believe this is a huge factor in how long your fascia will last you.
Common nails may cost less but remember you are also supporting your gutter with the fascia board. For this reason, a lot of us get gutters filled up with debris over time from weather conditions making the gutters heavier than usual.
As a result, your fascia board will be under more stress and have to
support that extra weight until we get around to cleaning out the
Put on some paint
Lastly, we recommend that you paint your fascia board with quality water resistant pain. This will give your new fascia board that appealing look you’re looking for.
Of course, you will want to match your fascia board to whatever type of material your home is covered in. You can do this with the help of your local painting store.
Grab a couple of colors and see which one you like the most. Paint
one side, and get a better look from the street to get a feel for what
your fascia will look like. Once you have made your decision primer and
paint your new fascia board.
Get in touch with us
If you’re looking into new or want to replace your old fascia board, Adco Roofing & Waterproofing has the knowledge to get it done.
E-mail or call us so we can come out to your property and give you a free estimate on your new fascia boards or repairs.
You might think since your commercial roof isn’t new, there isn’t much point implementing a maintenance plan. However, getting started with regular maintenance now can offer benefits like minimizing future repair expenses, preserving your building’s energy efficiency to keep heating and cooling costs in check, and preventing leaks that damage the building’s structure, interior and contents like equipment, furnishings or inventory. Putting a roof maintenance plan into action in 2020 can also extend the useful life of your roof and delay the need for a costly replacement by:
Slowing or Halting Developing Issues
Effective roof maintenance plans are built on a foundation of frequent, comprehensive inspections that can reveal deterioration and flaws that need fixing, as well as emerging problems that are likely to require future repairs – like membrane wear from foot traffic. By catching such issues early on and taking steps to mitigate the harm – like putting out walk pads and monitoring rooftop traffic – you can stop the damage and prolong the membrane’s lifespan.
Boosting Your Roof’s Resistance to the Elements
With thorough inspections and the input of a knowledgeable roofer, you’ll stay aware of needed repairs and have them completed in a timely manner. Your roofer can also advise you about beneficial measures that can strengthen the roof membrane and help it resist wear and aging, like having it cleaned periodically, or applying a reflective or waterproof coating. By making sound repairs and taking appropriate steps to preserve the membrane, your roof will be better able to withstand the daily onslaught of the elements, like the sun’s powerful rays, wind, rain, sleet, and snow.
Keeping Key Roof System Components Intact
Your roof is composed of many different components that all work together to protect your building, and keeping them intact is crucial to allow the roof system to last as long as possible. When you implement a maintenance plan that covers inspections, repairs, preservation and periodic care, you can rest easy knowing that components like the edge flashing stays in place to keep the membrane from shredding or billowing, the drainage system functions properly to prevent ponding, and membrane tears and punctures are repaired promptly and properly to keep rainwater out so it doesn’t degrade the insulation and decking.

Metal roofing has long been used for its durability, fire-resistant qualities, and long life spans. In addition to this, metal roofing now has more versatility than ever before, making it the material that inspires architects and roofing designers. Contractors cannot wait to work on projects with metal roofing. Metal roofing is now the go-to resource for new construction as well as renovation projects thanks to the multitude of benefits it has to offer.
Endless aesthetic appeal
Metal roofing is available in a variety of colors, textures, and finishes to appeal to every designer and roofer. Panels can be curved or shaped to fit conical roofing or standard sheet-shapes. Metal roofing is waterproof and the continuous interlocking systems allowing for expansion and contraction help the roof appear straight. Designers like to use metal because it can be made to fit over decking or open framing.
The most commonly used metals are copper, steel, aluminum, and zinc. Because metal is lighter than other materials you can be more creative with style without compromising durability. Metal roofing is better able to withstand winds, extreme weather, and fire. Steel needs to be galvanized to maintain strength and aluminum is usually anodized before use. Copper is used when aesthetics are most important and zinc is the choice for optimal corrosion resistance.
Metal roofing installation is very important and requires an experienced and qualified roofer. The longevity of a metal roof depends heavily on how well it is installed. When properly installed, metal roofing can last up to three times longer than other roofing materials. You need to plan carefully for trim, fasteners, fans, skylights, and other accessories because it is essential to have professional installation of these to prevent leaking.
Make sure all components you use are compatible with the roof panel and any exposed metal panels should match the panels or trim. Molded closure strips need to be neoprene, solid-cell synthetic rubber, or polyvinyl chloride pre-molded to match the covering for waterproofing purposes. It is most important to make sure the metal panels do not come in contact with dissimilar materials like lead, graphite, or lumber, as this can cause early degradation and shorten the life of your metal roof.
Savings are BIG
Metal roofing is a friend of the environment as it is 100% recyclable. This makes it a popular choice for roofing in today’s eco-friendly world. When compared to shingle roofing which ends up in the waste, metal roofing systems are more appealing in terms of keeping the country green. At the end of a metal roofing system’s life, the materials can be recycled or coated and used again.
When there is no need to remove the previous material, you save time and money when it comes to new system installation. Retrofitting in this way also reduces the amount of labor required for a project. This is especially useful for older buildings that are no longer up to code. With the installation of a metal roofing system over the outdated one, the building is up to code in no time.
Metal roofing panels outlast typical solar panels and are much more affordable than replacing the roofing with solar-power grids. Metal roofing can be designed to enhance energy efficiency. For example, aluminum panels in undulating patterns can regulate temperature and provide overhangs to shade windows below. This reduces glare, maximizes natural daylight exposure to the inside, and saves on energy costs.
Cool coatings are added to metal roofing to improve reflectivity so that most of the solar energy absorbed is returned to the air This keeps the building cooler. These coatings are typically darker in color to maximize heat reflection and promote optimal cooling or the inside. Many metal roofing systems now come with enhanced ultraviolet protection and finish to protect from damp coastal weather. These coatings ensure that metal roofing can adequately expand and contract as the weather changes, so as not to become worn too quickly.
Metal roofing offers flexibility, versatility, and durability. There are benefits to building owners, roofers, and designers. Metal looks good and lasts the distance. It saves money, promotes energy efficiency, and continues to inspire and innovate architects and designers with the vast selection of colors and styles metal can provide.
