In-Person and Webinar Preview - Metal Roofing with the Appearance of Traditional Materials

Metal Roofing with the Appearance of Traditional Materials (RFG18-1)

Course Description:

With its long-term durability, enduring appearance, and strong return on investment over the longer term, metal roofing has become a huge segment of the U.S. roofing industry—more than $4 billion sold annually, and forecasted to be more than $7 billion by 2024. Many architects envision standing seam or corrugated profiles as their only metal roofing options, yet designs exist that effectively mimic the appearance of traditional roofing materials such as clay tile, slate, or wood shake. This course will look at some of the current aesthetic options, performance characteristics, and green building properties of metal roofing designs, particular those that replicate the appearance of traditional roofing materials.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify and recognize the high performance characteristics of metal roofing (wind and weather resistance, fire classification and durability) as determined by national standards.
  • Investigate the design potential and innovative opportunities to use metal roofing in a variety of profiles and colors to create sustainable buildings.
  • Assess the functional contributions of metal roofing as part of the green and sustainable design of a building.
  • Specify metal roofing in a variety of green and conventional buildings selecting from a variety of choices and options.
