For over 20 years, Select Renovations has worked with commercial spaces all over the Metro Detroit area. We have extensive experience working with all types of metal roofing systems. When it comes to businesses, we focus on longevity and durability. Any commercial space must be installed with a metal roof that will last a lifetime and protect it from the elements. Because commercial roofing systems must meet more demanding standards, we have four types of metal roofing that we recommend our clients install in favor of others. 

In this blog post, we will discuss the four preferred types of metal roofing for businesses that Todd — our owner and leading operator — and our team at Select Renovations prefer when installing roofs all over Fraser and surrounding areas. We will examine their advantages and uses and what makes them excellent alternatives to other commercial roofing systems.

Types of Metal Roofing We Work With

Select Renovations prefers the following metal roofing systems for commercial applications:


5-V Crimp Metal Roofing

When it comes to durability for both commercial and residential properties, the 5-V Crimp Metal Roofing is preferred by many roofing contractors because of its low maintenance, use of use, and simplicity. This roofing panel is made of galvanized steel. They can be cut with shears and are lightweight, making them easy to transport. 

The advantages of using 5V Crimp Panels are that they won’t rot, accumulate mold or mildew, and are effective against pests. Business owners won’t worry about termites or roofs being toppled by heavy storms or snow. Other advantages of this type of metal roof are: 

  • It’s non-combustible. It has incredible fire-resistant qualities. This translates directly to less insurance costs, saving you money. 
  • They are impact-resistant, so you won’t have to worry about hail storms or accidental debris damage as much as you would with other roofing materials. 
  • They have a long lifespan, so they’re considered eco-friendly roofing systems. The corrugated panels are 100% recyclable. 
  • They are designed to conceal fasteners.

Image II Standing Seam Metal Roofing

Image II Standing Seams are more complicated to install in commercial buildings. This type of metal roofing system is a modern, steel-based panel that is not only an all-purpose solution but blends well with any architectural design. It’s very popular among businesses and homeowners looking for a long-lasting, aesthetically pleasing solution that will last a long time on their property. 

This type of metal roof has a 40-year paint warranty. Though it’s significantly more expensive than other metal roofing types, the money you will save by cutting down on maintenance costs, repairs, and replacements is worth it. They’re great for light commercial roofs and are one of our preferred roofing types. Other advantages of Image II Standing Seams include: 

  • Its snap-lock design hides fasteners and nails. They don’t require any mechanical seams during the installation process. It takes longer, but it makes your business look significantly better. 
  • Its fading resistance and Energy Star® reflectivity will save you money on utility bulls. The energy efficiency alone is a unique selling point. 
  • Image II Standing Seams are fire, hail, and wind resistant. 
  • They come in different colors so that they can match your business exterior. 

Metal Shingle Roofing

Metal shingle roofing is a common roofing system. They’re popular because of their durability and ability to mimic the look of traditional roofing materials like wood and slate. With proper maintenance, a metal shingle roof can last up to 50 years, so it’s a popular choice among business owners. Their low-maintenance properties make it ideal for any commercial space looking to save money in the long run. 

This type of metal roofing comes in many different styles, textures, and colors. They can be adapted to your building and even be modified to fit your brand. Shingle roofs made out of metal are popular choices for roofers, and they have other advantages, including: 

  • Its durability is unmatched. Metal shingle roofing can withstand heavy rain, snow, hail, and high winds.
  • Despite their higher cost, they have a longer lifespan than asphalt shingles, so you get the value for your money on longevity alone. 
  • Metal shingles require minimal maintenance, so businesses won’t need to replace or repair their roofing as often.
  • Their fire resistance makes them a popular choice for commercial buildings. 

Copper Roofing

Copper is one of the most durable roofing materials on the market. It can withstand extreme weather conditions like snowstorms and hail. Their durability alone makes it one of the superior types of metal roofing. They have a lifetime warranty and a longevity between 60 and 100 years. Securing commercial buildings with a copper roof is a great way to protect your business and bring architectural character to your property. 

Business owners who choose copper roofing for their commercial buildings invest in eco-friendliness. Copper is highly recyclable and sustainable. However, it is one of the most expensive roofing materials available. Its cost is significantly higher than that of metal shingles and Image II Standing Seams. Other advantages of copper roofing include: 

  • They require little to no maintenance. It’s highly resistant to corrosion, rust, and discoloration.
  • Because they’re so corrosion-resistant, copper is the ideal roofing material for commercial properties in coastal areas or regions with high humidity.
  • They have a unique and distinctive appearance, which evolves over time as the metal develops a natural patina.
  • Copper roofing can be formed and shaped into intricate designs and architectural elements.
