As the HGTV website says, the Green Home 2012 has an “energy star rated, 5-V crimp sheet steel roof, chosen for its durability, longevity and ability to reflect sunlight.” Durability and longevity are two major advantages of metal roofs over other materials such as composite shingle. When you install a metal roof on your home the goal is for the roof to outlive you, it should not have to be replaced.
The 5-V crimp panel is an exposed fastener system, one of three basic categories. Two other options for metal roofing systems are standing seam and concealed fastener (batten capped). There are several different panel profiles in each category which are similar in look and function to the 5-V crimp on the HGTV Green Home 2012.
Exposed Fastener System:
Concealed Fastener System:
Standing Seam System:
There are many options for panel profiles in standing seam and they are very durable and widely used in residential roofing. To see a recently installed standing seam roof by Lone-Star Roof Systems, click here.
One option is the Meridian Panel by McElroy which features ribs for added stability and mimics the look of the 5-V crimp.
No matter which system you choose, a metal roof is a great investment in your home and can be a big help to your energy costs. In some cases, you may even qualify for discounts on your home insurance.
