Metal Roofing for Churches, Religious Facilities and Steeples
Churches are a principle feature to any community whether in a city or in a rural Minnesota area. They are architectural landmarks that withstand the test of time throughout many generations. Protect your communities landmark with a product that also withstands the test of time – a metal roof. It will protect your church structure, steeple, contents and congregation from the elements. It is a good use of resources.
At A. M. Burney Exteriors, Inc. we understand the value of a budget. It is why we offer quality metal roofing products that last. With cost of labor and the cost of petroleum based (asphalt) products continually rising, it is time to put all that hard work and money-raising efforts to good use. Once a metal roof is installed, the cycle of re-roofing your church with asphalt roofing shingles every 20-24 years ends. We invite you to explore the benefits of stone coated steel, standing seam, or enhanced steel roofs below.
There are a couple of building issues that we can investigate during a new roof installation. If you are having trouble keeping your building cool in the summer, warm in the winter; if you are experiencing ice dams, we can address these issues by inspecting the current insulation and ventilation. There are products available that may fix these issues. You will see (energy savings) and feel (comfort)the difference. The best time to do this is when you are replacing your roof.
Our specialty steel roof installations are second to none. Our crews are trained to understand the nuances of any architectural feature and install them correctly. They clean throughout the day. They are mindful of your parishioners’ safety. With our established steel roofing installation techniques, and your choice of quality steel roof materials, it will be the last roof you congregation will have to consider replacing for a long, long time.
What types of metal roofs are there to put on a Church?
There are three types of metal roof systems that you can choose from. Each has their own unique look and appeal, but all beautiful and tough. They are:
Stone Coated Steel Metal Roofing Panels for Churches
Stone coated metal roofing combines the longevity of steel with the textured appeal of a traditional asphalt roofing shingle and comes with a 50 year warranty. Developed after World War II and made in the U.S.A., these steel panels are made of 26 gauge steel. The steel panel is then coated with A-50 galvalume-which makes it rust proof. It is then covered with small stone chips in an acrylic, heat activated, bonding agent. The result is a steel roofing panel that looks like asphalt with the strength of steel. A stone coated steel panel fits many church architectural styles.
These profiles are available in five color blends
- Cottage Shingle – two color blend creates a classic shingle look.
- Shake – replicates hand-split wood shake.
- Shingle – low profile.
- Barrel Vault – traditional look of high-barrel Spanish tile.
- Tile – medium profile, resembles traditional style of southern Europe.
What are the benefits of a stone coated steel roof?
- High Wind Ratings. Excellent for steeples
- In some cases, can be installed over an asphalt roof. This saves tear-off costs.
- Above-Sheathing Ventilation.
What is Above-Sheathing Ventilation?
A unique feature that several profiles have is Above-Sheathing Ventilation. It allows for an air space between the steel panel and the roof decking which allows for ventilation. As hot air a rises from inside the building and attic, it creates a natural convection effect. This hot air can get trapped in the roof. This ventilated system allows this heated air to flow across the roof deck reducing heat gains in the summer. The result is a cooler interior space in the summer that saves on your energy consumption, saving money.
A stone coated steel roof that looks like traditional asphalt may fit the architecture of your church and church parsonage perfectly. Call A.M. Burney Exteriors, Inc. today and schedule a free estimate for a new metal roof.
