Standing Seam Roof in Palmetto Bay

Close up of metal roof

When the time came to replace their roof, the owners of this Palmetto Bay home decided to upgrade to a galvalume standing seam roof (aka metal roof). The new galvalume roof has a life expectancy of 45 Years, 150% longer than a tile roof. Of course, the cost is about 150% more as well. This project consisted of replacing the pitched and flat roof on the main structure as well as the pitched roof on the detached garage.

Once the old tile was removed and the decking re-nailed to Florida Building Code, a VersaShield® Fire Protection Barrier was installed. Then came the installation of the 24 GA galvalume metal roof giving the main residence & detached garage matching modern roofs.

Below is a gallery showing the installation process of the standing seam roof & flat roof.

The gallery below shows the process of removing a shingle roof and replacing it with Galvalume Standing Seam Metal Roof. This roof is located in West Miami, the color chosen by the homeowner was bronze.

After the old shingle roof was removed, all rotted decking/sheathing was replaced. Unique to the metal roof installation process is the use of VersaShield, which acts as a fire barrier and insulation. Once the VersaShield is installed, the standard 30 Felt Roofing Paper with Tin-Cap is next, followed by the installation of the Englert 24 GA Galvalume Standing Seam Metal Roof.
