Project scope/size: Standing seam metal roofing system installation on three-story sloped buildings totaling 45,800 sq. ft.

Project description/Challenges:

  • Three-story roof with a 7/12 pitch
  • Working with a contractor unfamiliar with this type of roofing yielded sheathing that required work to fill voids and buckles to ensure smooth application of the metal roofing
  • Lower roofs that needed waterproofing to inhibit leaks before the metal panels were installed
  • Loading the metal panels (some over 35 feet long) without bending them and strapping them onto the roofs to inhibit their slipping before installation

Product(s) used: 30-lb. Dry-In, VersaShield underlayment, Englert Series 1300 metal panels.
