Metal Roofing

February 8 – 9, 2018

16 CEHs

Metal has unique properties that separate it from other roof choices. For over three millennia, metal roofing has been a durable, aesthetically appealing design element utilized for significant
buildings. The introduction of corrugated metal roofing in the late 19th century became a welcome economical, fire-resistant roofing option. Metal roofing continues to evolve with technological advances in alloys, coatings and the use of floating standing-seam roof panels.

This two-day course’s content is intended to provide attendees with a comprehensive
understanding of metal roofing.
