Outer Banks Metal Roofing
A metal roof is an excellent option that is often overlooked by many people. In fact, many historical homes were originally built with a metal roof. They can offer much more than expected. When it comes to durability, metal roofing leads the way because of their ability to withstand damage caused by UV rays, temperature changes, severe storms, and high winds. Typically, a metal roof will last two to three times longer than an asphalt roof. A metal roof will also significantly increase the resale value if you ever choose to put your property on the market.
Metal roofing is more than the shiny, silver roofs you might be imagining. In fact, most people are surprised to learn that metal roofing is now available in numerous styles, colors, and finishes, providing you with many options. Below you will find links to the manufacturers of the panels we install. For people who find the standard metal roof appealing, we offer both standing seam and hidden fastener profiles in either steel or aluminum. If the standard metal roof is not the look you are aiming for, take a look at McElroy Metal’s product line. They offer the durability of metal roofing with the appearance of shingles, tiles, or shakes.

Types of Metal Roofing
Vertical Seam Thru-Fastened Panels are long-length panels that have ribs running from the eave to the ridge of the roof. These panels are fastened with gasketed screws that penetrate the panel into the roof decking substrate. Typical of this type of roofing is 5-V, which is used extensively in the Southeastern U.S. Many mountain homes and cabins also use thru-fastened panels very successfully. Residential standing seam panels with an attachment flange hidden by the next panel are growing in popularity throughout the country. The fact that the attachment point is covered by the adjacent panel makes for a very clean looking installation and protects against weather. These panels are steel, aluminum, copper, zinc or terne metal. On longer length standing seam panels (over 20 feet) hidden moveable clips are attached to the roof deck and the seam of the roof panel. This arrangement allows for movement of the panel due to thermal expansion and contraction of the roof panel during the day and night.
Modular Press-formed panels-prepainted Modular Press-formed prepainted panels are painted interlocking panels with standard dimensions and shapes and are growing in popularity for residential applications. They may be steel, aluminum, copper, zinc, or terne metal. These panels may resemble wood shake, tile, slate or shingles. The roof panels are attached with hidden fasteners directly to the roof deck in most applications. They are usually 4-way interlocking to provide exceptional wind up-lift resistance.
Modular Press-formed Granular Coated Modular Press-formed granular coated are standard dimension panels that are either thru-fastened or attached with hidden fasteners and coated with an acrylic coating with embedded stone granules on the surface. Shake, tile, and shingle shapes are all made out of 26 gauge steel. The panels may be installed over a batten/counter batten wood grid system or directly to the roof deck.
