Commercial Sheet Metal Roofing
At Command Roofing, we offer sheet metal roofing solutions for both new roof installations and re-roofing
projects. Sheet metal roofing, often referred to as architectural metal roofing, involves the use of metal
panels or sheets as the primary roofing material for commercial and industrial buildings. This type of roofing
system is valued for its durability, versatility, and aesthetic appeal. It's commonly used in a wide range of
architectural designs due to its ability to blend functionality with aesthetics.
Types of Metal Used:
Sheet metal roofing can be made from various types of metal, each with its own characteristics and
- Steel: Galvanized or Galvalume-coated steel is a common choice due to its strength,
corrosion resistance, and relatively affordable cost.
- Aluminum: Aluminum is lightweight, highly corrosion-resistant, and suitable for coastal
environments or areas with high humidity.
- Copper: Copper roofing offers a distinctive appearance that develops a natural patina over
time. It's known for its longevity and upscale aesthetic.
- Zinc: Zinc roofing is known for its durability, resistance to corrosion, and unique
blue-gray patina that develops over time.

charming, weathered appearance.

lifespans, often exceeding 50 years or more with proper maintenance. They can withstand harsh weather
conditions, including wind, rain, snow, and UV radiation.

environmental elements. It's often classified as a Class A fire-resistant material.
