As you start building your next project, the first thing that probably comes to your mind is what kind of roof you want. If you’ve chosen a metal roof, sifting through different metal roofing options can be challenging and overwhelming. However there are two most preferred metal roof types: screw down metal roofs and standing seam, or “exposed fastener” metal roofs. The exact choice will depend on several factors such as budget, build-speed requirement, impact load, lifespan, aesthetics, environment, application etc. This article will focus on screw-down profiles and their benefits as an economical and effective solution; which will also help you take an informed decision.
What is screw-down profile?
Screw-down metal roofing is essentially a corrugated metal roof held together with many exposed screws that clasp the roof in place. It is one of the most basic forms of metal roofing you’ll find in the market, and is particularly common over warehouses, railways and metro stations, manufacturing plants, infra and industrial establishments.
Advantages of Screw-Down Metal Roofs:
- Firstly, Screw-down roofing is one of the simplest forms of roofing available.
