2. steel and aluminum roofs have always had a presence in the warehouse and industrial building sector, but low maintenance and long wear life advantages are combining with an increasingly broad color selection to give the material greater appeal in applications for restaurants, shopping centers, schools and churches.
Berridge Manufacturing uses galvanized steel coils (and to a lesser extent, galvanized aluminum) to make roofing panels and shapes. The company offers more than 30 colors and several textures and designs custom colors for multiple-location customers such as Burger King and Loews.
According to Gordon, just 10 years ago metal roofing's overall market share across all building segments was 10 percent. But a survey conducted last year showed that architects are now specifying metal roofing for some 40 percent of the buildings they design in the commercial and industrial sectors.
While metal roofing can cost a little more upfront compared to asphalt shingles and some other types of roofing, building owners and contractors see a payoff in the form of lower maintenance costs (no flashing; no sumps to move standing water as with flat roofs) and longer life.
Berridge also sells cutting systems used by contractors such as Tom Geist of The Geist Co., Cleveland.
Geist says the procedure typically generates very little work-site scrap, as it is designed to use coils in the exact width needed.
He indicated that some customers are inquiring into recyclability, especially when working within a "green building" framework.
