A standing seam roof system was selected for its life span and aesthetics to replace Lakeview Baptist Church’s deteriorating asphalt shingle roof in Dundee, Ohio.

Classic Metals Ltd. used Coated Metals Group’s Ultra-Clad steel to fabricate 15,380 square feet of its 26-gauge, 18-inch-wide Eterna Guard standing seam roof system in Sierra Tan. The panels have 1 3/4-inch snap-lock ribs. Kline Home Exteriors installed the panels.

Flying gables on the large, 12,368-square-foot roof made installation challenging. Classic Metals fabricated the panels on-site with New Tech Machinery’s roll former to create unbroken, seamless panels eave to ridge, and ensure proper fit and quality. The $27,000 project was completed in October 2016.
