Galvanized Metal Buildings Roof Panels

with one comment

More and more metal building companies are offering galvanized roof panels for it’s many benefits which include it’s ease of construction, low maintenance and relatively low cost. The galvanized coating will not rust or corrode for many, many years. Each panel is overlapped so that there will be no chance for leakage. A more reliable metal buildings company will also include overlapping panels for the walls, this costs a bit more but helps keep the weather out which gives your building a much longer life span.

Galvanized roof panels also help keep the building cooler saving energy and money on you electric bills, how do galvanized roof panels save energy and money? Galvanized roof panels are reflective and redirect the suns beams away from the building, not absorbing the suns hot temperature like most colored roofs do. So if you are planing a steel buildings project remember galvanized roof panels can save you money ad a good company will have overlapping panels both on their roof and walls as a default standard.

How To Maintain Your Steel Buildings Temperature

with one comment

With the current climate changes hotter summers and colder winters it is becoming more difficult to maintain your steel buildings temperature.

So what can one do to save money on maintaining the buildings temperature?

For heat: A galvanized roof to reflect the sun rays off the building and a standard 3″ insulation.

For Cold A steep roof pitch to get the snow off and 6″ insulation in the entire building to keep the heat in.

In both cases solar panels are available to power the building and not only save you money on your electric bills but also help save the environment.
