Metal Roof and Wall Systems
Standing seam metal roofing has a long history of successful use in the United States. Copper roofing with standing seams covered some noteworthy early American roofs, including Christ Church in Philadelphia, which was built in the mid-1700s. Flat-seamed copper was also used on many domes and cupolas. At the time, the copper sheets were imported from England. But at the end of the 18th century, facilities for rolling sheet metal began operating in the U.S. This course will take you through the history and the basics, including panel types, gauge and grade, oil canning and cures, and coating and finishes, as well as energy efficiency and testing and certification.
