Metal Roof System

A metal roofing system is another great option for your roof! If you are looking for durability and longevity, metal roofing is the pick for you. There are a couple options available when it comes to metal roofing systems. The two options are exposed fastener and hidden fastener metal roofing. For exposed fasteners, the fasteners used to hold everything down are installed externally into the ribs of the roof and can be seen from the outside of the roofing system. Hidden fastener, also called standing seam, is where the fasteners are installed underneath the surface of the roof. The fasteners are hidden and this allows for metal expansion and movement.

Good Shepherd Roofing offers different options that fall under the exposed fastener category. Georgia Rib and R Panel both have ribs but the flat portions of the panel are wider on the R Panel options. As for the hidden fastener, standing seam is the main option. As mentioned earlier, the hidden fastener roofs are flatter and have less of a corrugated look while also hiding the fasteners underneath the surface.
