Metal roof provides longevity

North Atlanta Church of Christ in Dunwoody, Ga., had an asphalt shingle roof that leaked. Occasionally, shingles blew off. The owner and Williamson and Associates Inc., a consulting firm, determined a metal roof was the best choice for a replacement due to its longevity.

Ideal Building Solutions installed 20,000 square feet of McElroy Metal Inc.’s Maxima standing seam roof system in Slate Gray for the project. The project required some extra long panels; the longest was 109 feet. Technicians from McElroy Metal roll formed the long panels at eave height, and Ideal Building Solutions staged them on the roof.

The main roof is made up of nine hips intersecting to one ridge, and forming the hip and ridge trim at the intersection was critical. The lower roofs were constructed with a mix of factory-formed straight and tapered panels. The re-roofing project was completed during a short time period, from March to April 2017.
