Words With Letters Shingle
Words With Letters Shingle – There are billions of square feet of commercial and industrial roofing applications in the United States, many of which are in need of repair. Installing metal roofing over existing shingles is a great way to help contractors maximize the longevity of their new roof and save them money (not to mention headaches!) on roof tearing. Why Install Metal Roofing Over Existing Shingles? Shingles can be an inexpensive roofing material, but they require maintenance and frequent replacement. As a result, many owners are tired of the constant expense, chaos and disruption to their business operations. Metal roofing offers building owners a way out of the shingle replacement cycle. Metal roofing typically costs significantly more than new shingles, but metal roofing can last 50+ years with minimal maintenance. (That’s easily 2-3 times the life expectancy of a shingle roof!) A metal roof also adds curb appeal to a building, as they come in a variety of styles and colors. Durability and aesthetics aside, metal roofing is made from recycled materials and is 100% recyclable at the end of its life. So for building owners looking to be eco-friendly, it’s hard to find a more eco-friendly roofing option than metal panels. Shingles are rarely recycled, and waste disposal companies and landfills often charge a lot to accept them because they get so many. In contrast, installing a metal roof over existing shingles means that any roofing costs, including disposal fees, are completely avoided. In addition, you get all the benefits of a metal roof. Want to learn more about the differences between metal roofing and shingles? Check out this article from our partner S-5! Metal Roofing Over Existing Shingle Options Once you’ve decided to stop the constant fiddling of shingle replacement and go with metal panels instead, it’s time to decide on the exact installation method you plan to use. There are several basic approaches when using metal roofing over existing shingles. Let’s explore the most common. Attaching Metal Panels Wool or Plank Straps In this case, wooden purlins or sub-girts are used as the old roof wool strips and attached to the structure below. This framing system can be installed directly over existing shingles or applied over an existing floor or sub-floor. The new metal roof panels are then attached to the framing system. The image above shows a typical wool strip approach, but as you can probably guess, there are many variations to this method. This method usually involves less mess than a complete tear. However, with the added cost of wool materials and installation, the final price can be the same as the tear. However, it is certainly more environmentally friendly because the shingles are in place. This approach adds some weight to the roofing system, so it is essential to determine if the structure can support the additional weight. For more information on this technology, check out this white paper by the Metal Construction Association. When using this approach, it is important to remember that the copper elements of the pressure treated wood can aggressively attack the metal panels. Consequently, if pressure-treated lumber is used for furring applications, #30 felt or synthetic underlay should be used between the wood framing and the metal panels. Attaching Metal Panels Directly to Shingles A more cost-effective installation method is to attach metal panels directly through the shingles and to the wood deck below. While this method saves the cost and labor of wool strips, it is important to remember that steel often acts as a mirror and can telegraph a layer and inconsistencies through metal panels. This condition is purely aesthetic and doesn’t affect panel performance, and homeowners with a high focus on aesthetics may be better off with a remove-and-replace approach or a system like our 138T, which we’ll address a little later. There are some additional considerations with the direct attachment approach. First, achieving Above Sheathing Ventilation (ASV) with this installation method is challenging. ASV is very important for reducing energy consumption. You can learn more about ASV here. As a result, this approach often represents the most economical installation, and it also offers low energy savings. Second, it is important to note that direct attachment projects require a barrier between the original shingles and the new metal roof. This layer of protection is critical to prevent the shingles from wearing through the metal panels as they expand and contract over the life of the roof. Common barrier products include #30 felt, synthetic underlayment, or thin foil face insulation. Shingle Recovery Systems A third recovery approach is to use our patented 138T Shingle Recovery System. This method avoids the cost and labor required of the wool strip approach mentioned earlier. Furthermore, the clip design maximizes the appearance of the system. But perhaps most importantly, it provides ASV or Above Sheathing Ventilation airspace, which helps owners maximize energy savings. In addition, the panels of this system are symmetrical. On the other hand, many other types of standing seam panels are asymmetrical. Only one letter is different in these two words, and ownership is more important in the installation of the roof and throughout the life of the roof than one letter might imply. Symmetrical systems (like our 138T) can be installed and replaced in any order. In contrast, asymmetric systems require installation in a predetermined manner (usually from left to right). If repairs or replacements are required during the life of the roof on an asymmetrical system, the same difficult left-to-right process is required. In fact, when working with asymmetrical style roof panels it is not uncommon to be forced to remove perfectly good panels to access those that need to be repaired or replaced. When this happens, both the repair costs and the scratches generated can be significantly higher than expected with symmetrical panel systems. In contrast, repair or replacement is difficult with symmetrical systems, as contractors can simply begin repair or replacement work at a specific location.
