Metal Roof Installation
Residential Metal Roofing
Metal roofing is installed on more residential homes than ever before. Not that long ago, people believed that steel, aluminum, and other metal roofing materials were meant for commercial applications only.
While that was once true, now people are beginning to see the benefits of having a metal roof installed on their homes. South Peak specializes in metal roofing installation in Medicine Hat.
The common metal roof profiles we commonly install are:
Corrugated Exposed Fastener Roofing
Corrugated metal roofing has a distinct look that’s instantly recognizable. Corrugated sheet metal, more commonly referred to as ribbed profile, is a lightweight, easy to install product.
It will not attract termites or other pests, nor will it rust or fade over time. Corrugated metal roofing is also durable and resistant to extreme weather conditions. It comes in several steel gauges and colour options, making it a popular choice among homeowners in Southern Alberta
Gauge refers to the thickness of the metal used. Typically, we install 29 gauge but can also do 26 or 24 depending on the colour.
Standing Seam Profile
The standing seam profile is one of the most popular metal roofing styles for commercial or high-end residential homes. Some of the reasons for its popularity are its beauty, longevity, durability, and energy efficiency. It also has a fresh, bold look that complements your home while giving it a contemporary feel.
Part of the sleekness of the look is because the fasteners are hidden. Standing seam is a little more expensive than the corrugated option. However, it comes in a variety of colours, from ivory to browns or blues to rich, dark greens. Standing seam is generally available as a 26 and 24 gauge.

Nail Strip (24 gauge) and Forma Loc (26 gauge) are the typical standing seam hidden fastener panels we use.
Benefits Of A Metal Roof
Metal roofs have several benefits. They are energy-efficient, recyclable, durable, and long-lasting. When properly installed and well maintained, a metal roof in Medicine Hat could last up to 50 years.
The main thing you have to watch for with metal roof maintenance is that the rubber stopper around the fastener can dry out and crack. Every 10 to 12 years that fasteners should be replaced to prevent any damage as of this. If they are not checked and replaced as required, it could cause a roof leak where the screw penetrates the metal.
