A Comprehensive Guide to Metal Roofing Options

by Dymon Brady

Are you looking to learn more about our metal roofing options? Metal roofing can be very popular, and depending on how it is installed, it is an incredibly dependable system.

Our roofing panels are great for both residential and commercial roofing.

See the chart below for a quick reference point of what options are available to you. Not sure what your roof slope is? Learn how to calculate your roofing slope here.


SS675 NewTech Panel Profile

For roofs with a pitch of 3/12 or higher, we install a SS 675 panel profile designed by NewTech. It features a 1 X ¾” tall metal panel with a seam that snaps and locks into place. This seam conceals the fasteners and provides a clean, smooth look.

One big benefit of this panel is that we can provide it in a range of anywhere from 24 – 18 gauge thickness in stainless steel. The color options in painted galvanized are limited to 24 gauge thickness. See the table below for a reference point on metal thickness.


Many other options will include a thinner panel (as thin as 29 gauge). We feel that it is important to offer you the longest lasting systems and with the most durability possible.

In high wind areas, it is not only a good idea to go with a 24 gauge thickness, but you may want to consider going to a narrower panel with more clips to prevent blow-offs over time.

SS150 NewTech Panel Profile

If your roof has a pitch of 3/12 or less, you will want to install the SS150 NewTech panel profile. This panel actually features a mechanical seam with a concealed fastener, ensuring that no water will penetrate the fasteners.

If your roof is between 1/12 and 2/12 pitch, it will need to have an inseam sealant to ensure that it is watertight, even in problematic areas. The panel will be seamed and crimped with a seamer right on site. If the roof slope is less than 1/12, a flat roof system can be designed to look like a metal roof in the event that is the visual appeal you’re after.

General Custom Options

Width between panel ribs can vary from 12” to 17”, depending on your preferences.

About Our Process

Our panels have higher upfront installation costs than our asphalt shingle systems will, though they will last longer. The metal panels are truly of the highest quality, as is our installation process. We have a beautiful system that delivers long-lasting, aesthetically pleasing results.

We only do the highest quality snap lock and mechanical seam panels.
You will find one panel (length wise) will stretch from the ridge to the roof’s edge.
