Metal Roofing Brands
I'm investigating metal roofing for the log home I'm building. Any opinions or recommendations on what brand? I have literature on Fabral but that's about it.

I do mostly copper, so I'm not familiar with all the metal brands. But check out MBCI.

I always liked Peterson Aluminum Corporation, Pac-Clad, and they sell other metals than just Aluminum.

Also, for budgetarry conscious buyers, Berridge makes a good panel, but get the ones with the better Kynar 500 coating applied.

there are probably companies that will run off panels right on site check your yellow pages atas international is a company iam familiar with .
kynar 500 finish is the top of the line coating

We buy most of our coils and flat stock from We have 4 panel machines and two soffit machines. Having these machines makes it easy to run panels to any length. If you do order panels from a company make sure the measurements are correct. I have seen nice roofs that have an ugly ridge because the panel was the wrong size.
Another company we deal with is Most of these panels we put on commecial buildings though.

Thanks for all the replies! I am limited to the standing seam style since we want to install solar laminate. I'm still debating whether to try the roof myself.

Series 300 by Imetco in Atlanta. Far and away the best engineered SS around

many years experience with all the systems above.

For lower-end systems I have a very good relationship with our local custombilt dealer and it is as acceptable a product for those applications as any of the others and more often than not, considerably cheaper. For quality and engineering though, nothing comes close to series 300.
