Metal Architecture Home

This 100-year-old home became something more exciting to see with the addition of a metal roof in 2010. According to Chuck Wheeler, safety officer and sales manager for JDM Roofing, the homeowner had metal roofing installed on other properties and liked the metal so much that he added one to this home, as well.

Wheeler adds, "A lot of homes in the area are going back to metal because of durability and because the metal roofs just look good."

The new roof is approximately 6,000 square feet of the 24-gauge steel Dutch Seam (MRD150) panels in Teal from ATAS International Inc.

The metal roof was installed directly over the previous asphalt shingles. Wheeler says the unique roof shape with its different areas and pitches required more planning and preparation, but the crew faced no challenges during installation.

"The metal roof changes the look of the home 100 percent," Wheeler says. "Of all the homes in town, if you rode down that street, this is the home you would select. The metal roof really makes it stand out."
