  • Advantages of Metal Panels

    ABC’s sustainable metal roofing and wall panels are durable, economical, energy efficient and offer a long life expectancy.

  • Advantages & Benefits of Metal Roof & Wall Panels

    There are many factors to weigh when choosing the right roof and wall panels for your building project. A key benefit of metal roofing and wall panels is that they positively impact the building’s performance by being a durable and sustainable solution. Many of the metal roofing and wall panels advantages outperform traditional shingles. Metal panels can help you achieve all the functional and aesthetic needs of your building’s design.

    Longevity

    A significant advantage of metal roofing and wall panels over traditional roofing materials is longevity. Due to the long-lasting nature of steel, your roofing and wall panels will have a longer lifespan and won’t need to be replaced as frequently compared to traditional building materials.

    Based on a study by the Metal Construction Association (MCA), the life-expectancy of low-slope, unpainted Galvalume® — 55% aluminum-zinc alloy coated steel — steel standing seam metal roofing (SSR) system is 60 years. With the average service life of a commercial building also being 60 years — according to LEED v4 — it’s unlikely a Galvalume metal roof will need replacing.

    Durability

    Another one of the metal roofing and wall panels benefits is durability. Metal is widely known as a resilient material and a strong match for extreme weather conditions

    Supported by third party testing, ABC’s metal roofing and wall panels offer the following:

    • Fire resistance
    • Wind resistance
    • Air leakage prevention
    • Water leakage prevention


    Capable of withstanding up to 140 mph winds, ABC’s metal roof & wall panels are strong contributors to durable, weathertight building envelopes.

    Sustainability & Energy Efficiency

    One of the metal roof and wall panels advantages is that they are sustainable and energy-efficient:

    • Roofing made out of 25-35% recyclable materials
    • Virtually 100% recyclable by the end of the roof's life-span
    • ABC's metal roofing systems are coated with infrared reflective Cool Roof finishes
    • Strong host for other energy0efficient or even energy-producing building materials
    • May be used with insulation
    • Ideal for solar photovoltaic (PV) systems

     

    Using Cool Roof finishes, much of the sun’s infrared radiation is reflected and keeps the roof surface temperature lower than uncoated or traditional roofing materials, offering energy savings, including significant reductions in HVAC costs.

    All of these metal roofing and wall panels benefits make them the best choice for agricultural, commercial, residential and post-frame building applications.
