Metal Roofing Project Profiles

The following links are actual “case studies” on metal roofing installations. Each profile shows a unique metal roof project with a storyboard of its installation, including pictures and text.
(1) Farmington, Connecticut: The product is Classic’s Rustic “Shake”. The total area of metal roofing is 8,500 square feet, installed over one layer of asphalt shingles, with an additional 500 square feet of PVC membrane on 4 small flat roofs. The roof is being installed in conjunction with approximately 80 photovoltaic solar panels. It is one of the largest residential photovoltaic solar/metal roof installations in Connecticut.

(2) Billerica, Massachusetts: A 300 year old antique 2-story Center Chimney Colonial had a roof deck in poor condition. The roof needed to be stripped and the deck needed to be re-sheathed with plywood. The customer decided on an Energy Star rated Oxford “Slate” aluminum metal roof for their house.

(3) Sudbury, Massachusetts: The challenge here was to add insulation and ventilation to a roof that had neither. The pitch on this roof is 3/12 – low by New England standards. The existing roof was asphalt shingles, about 15 years old, and was giving the homeowners a lot of trouble: ice dams in the winter and multiple leaks during heavy wind-driven rain storms.

(4) West Acton, Massachusetts: The steeple that towers over the village of West Acton has been a bit of an eye sore for many years. Our involvement in this project is only part of the restoration of the entire building. The decision to clad the steeple in white kynar-coated aluminum came after many hours of debate. A copper covering was the first choice, but it was decided that the associated cost was too high. Settling for the less expensive aluminum was still a great choice. We think you will agree when you see the finished project. Click here to see complete project profile.
(5) Concord, Massachusetts: This is a new construction project. The cupola was built on-site in historic Concord. It was then transfered to the shop for the copper to be clad to the roof. A design change was made along the way: The original intention to add a weather vane to the top of the cupola was changed to fitting the top with a simple point.

(6) Greenwich, Connecticut: Re-roof with a premium aluminum standing seam metal roof. This is a contemporary style house with low sloped roofs of about 3/12 pitch. The house is about 10,000 square feet with a very complex roof line. The existing roof was asphalt. The roof was stripped off and properly disposed. Then the preparation begins with the high temp Ice and Water and synthetic underlayment. Click here to see complete project profile.
(7) South Hadley, Massachusetts: After the house’s garage roof and part of the main house’s roof was destroyed in an accident, the owner decided to re-roof the whole house. The old metal roof was removed, a replaced with a premium aluminum Oxford “Slate” metal shingle roof from Classic Metal Roofs. Click here to see complete project profile.
