Roof Styles

VERTICAL ROOF STYLE – BEST

A-Frame Design Roof with the panels installed vertically The corrugated ridges in the panel run from the ridge cap down to the eave side of the building.

★ Vertical Roof design is the same as most traditional home or business roof tops are installed when using steel panels.

★ Snow, water, leaves and other trash will run off better on this design since the ridges are installed vertically allowing free flow off of the building.

★ The unit has a vertical roof trim on the sides and ends for a completed appearance.

★ Hat channel is used on roof bow/truss to allow attachment of vertical panels adding to the stability of the structure.

★ The roof/truss has a welded transition via a steel pin onto the legs.Some Manufacturers require Vertical Roof for buildings over 31’ and 36’.

BOXED EAVE STYLE – BETTER

A-Frame Design Roof with panels installed horizontally. The corrugated ridges in the panel run from front end of building to back end of building.

★ It is the middle range in our carport roof types, and is an A Frame design roof, with the metal running horizontally from end to end.

★ It is more affordable since it does not have hat channel or ridge cap like the Vertical Roof since the panels are horizontal.

★ It uses facia trim on the eave side to give it a pleasing finished look, and L Trim on the ends to finish out the ends of the panels and cover the sharp edges.

★ We recommend that all buildings over 36’ in length use Vertical Roof since the trailers can only haul 36’ panels. Some manufacturers require a Vertical Roof over 31’.

REGULAR STYLE – GOOD

Radius Bend Design Roof with panels installed horizontally. The corrugated ridges in the panel run from front end of building to back end of building.

★ Regular Style is the most economical of the type of roof lines, since it does not have hat channel, the ridge cap, eave side trim, and is a one piece bent bow/truss with no welded transition.

★ We recommend that all buildings over 36’ in length use Vertical Roof since the trailers can only haul 36’ panels.

★ The roof/truss has a welded transition via a steel pin onto the legs.

★ Some Manufacturers will require Vertical Roof for buildings over 31’
