A durable alternative to conventional roofing is the R-Panel roofing system (also known as PBR-Panel roofing systems). It’s an ideal product for retrofitting an existing composite roof. R-Panel roofing installs over existing composite shingles eliminating the time and expense of removing and disposing of them. This means a lower project cost overall. It gives a better look compared to a standard 1/2″ corrugated panel, and is stronger. We’ve included a color chart below of some of the most popular colors available.
There are numerous advantages to R-Panel Roofing Systems including the following:
- Hail Resistant – UL Class-4 Rating
- Wind Resistant up to 140 mph
- Fire Resistant
- Virtually Maintenance Free
- Substantial Warranty
- Commercial Grade Steel
- Energy Efficient
- Outstanding Durability
- Extended Life Expectancy
- Insurance Discounts After Installation are Typical
Another unique feature of the R-Panel product is that it can span the distance. It installs on open framing up to 5′ apart, which is perfect for steel buildings. It’s a very competitively-priced product, and will likely be the last roof you ever buy!
There are many misconceptions about metal roofs, and one of those is that they are ‘hot’ by their very nature. While it is true that metal absorbs heat, the panels that we install are treated and painted. These ‘cool’ colors serve to reflect solar heat, and metal actually releases any heat it accumulates faster than asphalt shingles. These factors serve to reduce the heat load on the home, and have been known to reduce the need for cooling up to 40% during the summer months. This is a significant advantage, especially here in North Texas where we see our share of 100+ degrees days!
