Selecting the ideal metal roof panel for your project is an important decision. Metal roofs have become an increasingly popular option due to their durability, longevity, and energy efficiency; however, with so many types of metal roofing available it may be difficult to select which type is ideal.

Sunshine Metal Supply offers an extensive selection of metal roof panels to fit every need and budget, such as these popular choices:

  • SUNLOC metal roof panels are a versatile and durable roofing option suitable for both residential and commercial standing seam applications. Their standing seam design ensures a modern and clean appearance. SUNLOC panels use a hidden fastener system which enhances the aesthetics of the roof and improves water resistance.
  • The 5V CRIMP metal panel is a popular roofing solution specifically designed for residential applications. The classic 5V CRIMP profile offers a timeless look and excellent strength. Unlike standing seam panels, 5V CRIMP utilizes an exposed fastener system, making for a more cost-effective option while still providing a secure and weather-resistant roof.
  • Sun-PBR metal roofing panels are designed for commercial and agricultural buildings. Sun-PBR panels are touted as one of the most economical types of metal roofing panel, making them a cost-effective option for industrial applications. Additionally, they are engineered to offer exceptional strength and durability.
  • Armored Coast is an innovative metal roofing solution specifically crafted to withstand coastal environments. Constructed with ZAM (Zinc-Aluminum-Magnesium), these panels provide superior corrosion protection from saltwater spray, harsh winds, and other coastal stressors. Installed within 300 feet of coastline without costly stainless steel clips required by traditional galvanized steel panels, Armored Coast can provide cost-effective yet reliable protection for coastal properties.

Metal roofing presents several distinct advantages over conventional asphalt shingle systems.  Finding the appropriate type of metal roof panel depends on many different variables, including your budget, climate, architectural style, and personal preferences. Here are a few key points when making this important decision:

  • Cost: Metal roofs may initially cost more than asphalt shingle roofs; however, their long lifespan and reduced maintenance requirements make them the more cost-effective choice in the long run.
  • Climate: Metal is a great choice for roofs in all climates; however, if you live in a coastal area with strong winds and salty air, specific features are essential for long-term performance. Sunshine Metal Supply recommends the Armored Coast metal roofing panels for these conditions.
  • Style: Metal roofs come in many styles and colors to complement any architectural style, so when selecting panels you should think about what would best enhance the overall appearance of your property.
