Metal has unique properties that separate it from other roof choices. For over three millennia, metal roofing has been a durable, aesthetically appealing design element utilized for significant buildings.
The introduction of corrugated metal roofing in the late 19th century became a welcome economical, fire-resistant roofing option. Metal roofing continues to evolve with technological advances in alloys, coatings, and the use of “floating” standing-seam roof panels.
This course’s content is intended to provide attendees with a comprehensive understanding of metal roofing.
• How metal roofing has evolved and continues to grow market share
• The various metal roofing systems and how they differ in performance
