The vertical roof style metal carport is the strongest roof style available. The roofing panels are laid in a vertical orientation starting from the peak and ending at the eaves/sides. To do this the structure requires an underlayment of 18 gauge hat-channel which gives the metal building it’s added rigidity and strength.
Vertical Roof Style: This design is the most durable as well as the most traditional style of metal roof. Its vertically aligned panels allow for better water and debris shed. It’s construction with hat-channel and paneling on top make this the strongest roof style we offer.
Our Vertical Roof Style allows the water, snow, leaves, etc. to run off to the side of the building. Water and snow will stand on a horizontally installed roof until it evaporates or melts. The longer the water stays on the metal, the greater the chance for rust forming on the panels. The paint and panel will last longer with a vertical roof. 99% of roof installations on homes use a vertically installed roof. Concrete or rebar anchors included. 90 day workmanship warranty on all buildings, effective day of installation. Beckers 20 year limited warranty on roofing materials.
