What Are The Different Types Of Metal Roof That I Can Buy?

When we first started using metal roofs, we really only used them for certain kinds of buildings. From agricultural buildings to industrial warehouses and factories, metal roofs were mainly used for working building.

Metal roofs were chosen because they were practical, and not much, if any, concern was given to how they looked or if they suited the buildings they sat on top of.

But today things are a little bit different. In addition to being extremely strong, durable and long lasting, metal roofs are also incredibly versatile, coming in a wide range of styles, colors and finishes, making them perfect for any type of property.

We here at NEPA Roofing Pros are firm believers that, no matter the type of property in question, there’s a style of metal roof that will fit it like a glove.

Here’s a quick look at some of the different types of metal roof that we offer:

Lok Seam

The incredibly versatile Lok Seam is a snap-together, concealed fastener, standing seam roof that can be installed over open framing or a solid substructure.

These panels offer the perfect blend of the aesthetics of an architectural panel and the strength of a structural one. Lok seam comes in a wide variety of colors, from harbour blue to copper metallic, making it a perfect fit for a wide variety of buildings.


Sleek, stylish and modern, these panels are perfectly suited to residential and commercial properties alike. SL-16 also protected with Galvalume coating and a wide range of colors from subdued to bold, these panels are a real crowd pleaser.

Imperial Rib Panel

Formed from 29-gauge steel and protected with a Galvalume coating, Imperial Rib Panel roofing is extremely tough. These panels can be cut to size right down to the inch.

While these panels are manufactured, an internationally patented condensation control membrane known as Drip Stop is applied, which means the panel can trap and release moisture, making them even more durable.

PBR Panel

Our PBR panels are also treated with Drip Stop and come with a 40 year paint warranty, giving you peace of mind that your roof will last you a long time, and still look fantastic.

Speaking of paint, you can choose from a wide range of Energy Star certified colors, including polar white, patriot red, and petunia green.

5-V Crimp

These were some of the original metal roofing panels to become widely available, and they remain a very popular choice to this day. This is thanks to their low profile look and classic V rib appearance, meaning that they blend in well and don’t stand out too much on any property.

Classic Rib

These Classic Rib panels are some of the most popular ones that we offer. This is because they are the most economical panel we carry, but they do not sacrifice strength or style for this affordability.
