Graber Roofing & Construction specializes in post-frame construction. We use a Richland column for our post-frame buildings, 3-ply, 2×6. These are 30% stronger than a 6×6 and less likely to crack, split, or rot. Whether it’s barns, sheds, commercial buildings, or garages, Graber Roofing & Construction can provide you with a solid structure at a very affordable price.
Post-frame constructions are engineered wood-frame building systems that can be more quickly erected than other buildings. Because of their larger posts and interlocking frames, these buildings can handle greater loads than stud-wall construction. Also, fewer structural materials are needed, saving material and installation costs.
Since the posts are spaced farther apart than the studs, there are fewer interruptions in the insulating materials. Post-frame buildings feature an exceptionally large wall cavity with room to add ample insulation, raising efficiency and lowering heating and cooling costs throughout the year.
The National Roofing Contractors Association states that the popularity of residential steel roofing has dramatically increased over the past ten years. It is a definite sign that homeowners and builders have become more aware of steel roofing benefits.
Today, metal roofing vastly differs from the old corrugated “tin” roofs you used to see on barns. Steel roofing is a high-tech solution to the need for durable, fire-resistant, lightweight roofing that looks incredible on a house.
Metal roofing is favored for its fire-resistant qualities, longevity, and speed of installation. It is also surprisingly lightweight and great at reflecting heat from the sun. This characteristic helps homeowners save energy. It may even qualify your home for tax credits.
Longevity, speed of installation, and fire-resistant qualities are some of the benefits of having residential steel roofing. Surprisingly lightweight, steel roofing assists homeowners with energy bills as metal roofs reflect heat from the sun and keep homes cooler in the summer months. Your home may qualify for a tax credit by having steel roofing.
Exposed Fastener vs. Concealed Fastener
Steel Master Roofing offers exposed and concealed fastener metal roofing systems for residential, commercial, and post-frame applications.
Why Steel Roofing?
Commercial steel roofing looks fantastic and is available in various colors and designs.
Steel roofing is long-lasting and resists decay, discoloration, and mildew for a maintenance-free commercial roofing solution.
Green and Efficient
Existing roofs can often be re-roofed with steel roofing without contributing waste to our country’s landfills.
Steel roofing is non-combustible, providing fire, wind, and impact resistance and high Underwriters Laboratory (UL) ratings.
Metal roofing offers ultra-performance in water, ice shedding, and snow conditions and is hail-resistant.
Steel roofing is quickly becoming the choice for increasing building and property value.
As the name implies, exposed fastener metal roofing systems use screw fasteners visible on the exterior of the metal roof surface after installation. These exposed fastener steel roofing systems are economical, have been in service for decades, and are extremely popular in various metal roofing applications.
Concealed fastener steel roofing systems, such as our standing seam panels, hide and shield the screws completely beneath the steel roof surface. This steel roofing system gives standing seam panels very clean, aesthetically pleasing lines, making it a favorite among residential roofers. The metal roofing system also exhibits the best weather resistance and durability since the steel roof fasteners are not exposed to the outside elements.
