Corrugated Metal Roofing
As a general rule, corrugated metal roofs have been associated with old warehouses and agricultural buildings since the 1800s. However, technology has improved, and corrugated metal roofing has too. Today you can get a residential corrugated metal roof installation in Rockwall, TX that looks just as good, if not better than a traditional residential roof! While these roof systems have now been designed to serve residential structures, there are still varieties that are better suited for commercial properties. There are various types of corrugated metal roofs to choose from, but here we will discuss two of the most common types, U panel roofing and R panel roofing.

U Panel Roofing
Traditionally, metal roofs are made with 29 gauge panels, but U panels are often made with 26 gauge panels. These panels are considered more aesthetically pleasing because of the curved U-shaped designs, making them the preferred choice for residential homes. Additionally, U panels can typically be applied directly over the existing shingles, making installation fast and simple. You can also choose from a wide variety of colors with these panels, which lets your corrugated metal roof installation flow seamlessly with the existing colors of your home.
R Panel Roofing
R panels, on the other hand, are primarily known for being low maintenance, and particularly durable. An R panel roofing installation is expected to last for close to 50 years, and it can also be applied directly over shingles. Due to the more rugged design, R panels are more often chosen for commercial structures, but some modern homes look particularly stylish with an R panel roof on top.
