Now these panels are used a lot here too. They have hidden fasteners and look good this is a new house.

Re: Metal Barn Siding On Roofs?


I didn't even know metal shingles were a thing. I only usually do little repairs on roofs and pass big jobs onto the guys who do that kind of stuff for a living. Maybe it's because there aren't many of them in my area, or maybe it's because they don't need fixing, but I've never been on any kind of metal roof. Seems like they would be pretty slippy to walk on?

Re: Metal Barn Siding On Roofs?


I had Crimp 5-V put on my house. Lost my shingles to Frances and Jean.

Metal is the way to go here. After we got blasted by those hurricanes a few yrs ago people started realizing it was a better system. I've seen a huge conversion to it.

Also the reflective value/energy savings are higher than shingles. My electric bill went down slightly after roof was put in.

Most building departments will make you strip existing roof And re-nail sheeting to bring it up to code.

And correct me if I'm wrong, but Crimp 5-V is stronger than Standing Seam.

And thanks to DWB for those pics. That is a great example of metal shingles. Driving down the street you would never know.

All kinds of metal on house in central Florida. Standing seam on higher end houses, 5v and ribbed is the most common. I do see a handful of tin shingles, the majority of which are 60 plus years old. And as far as 29 or 26 GA, 26 is the only one permitted on a resi roof.

I do a fair bit of re-paint on metal shingle roofs and they can be a bit tricky..

I will certainly pass on a roof if they don't want to strip. We have stripped every roof for nearly forty years, no reason to get lazy now.
Well that is the beauty of it that is why you own your business and I own mine. I agree stripping needs to be done if the house is not level and will show the ups as downs but beside that stripping a roof is not common among roofs done here, not to say its right or wrong just the way it's done. So you keep stripping them and I'll keep not and we will be just fine.
As far as 5 v crimp being stronger, I really don't understand what you are saying, it is a lighter gauge metal than a 24 gauge standing seam roof, it may be stiffer cause of the profile.

Re: Metal Barn Siding On Roofs?


Is he talking of stripping as in screwing strips to the roof or as in stripping the old shingles off?

So even if it is wrong it is ok because that's the way it is done?

but mom everyone is doing it!!!

Re: Metal Barn Siding On Roofs?


And who said it was wrong my manufacturer says there is nothing wrong with it. In fact that's exactly as they say to do iof there is only one roof on it. So I'll take what they tell me do and do it like that.

You and your hackism arnt going to last to long around these parts. And just because a manufacture says its ok to do doesn't mean it is the correct way to do it. You should check into industry standards.then try to improve them.

Give me a reason it's wrong then? And the benefits of putting slats down?
