You need to have tapered panels -- panels which are wider at one end than the other. This can be done by most standing seam manufacturers, including those featured on this website. It cannot be done with corrugated "sheet" types of metal roofs. Also, several of the shingle style products can be applied to rounded roofs. Thanks for choosing metal!

First of all I don't know the proper way to redo my roof. It's about 35 feet long and 7 feet wide, has a slight pitch, has a rain gutter, and both ends slope, one end is not against anything, one end is sloped into the building whee a room comes out. I have the material off and want to do metal roof. Should I use the ice and vapor barrier underlay first before doing a metal roof - and I don't know how to do the corners that slope at a 45 degree angle forming the sides. Thanks anyone. Joan

Joan, I am not entirely sure what your roof configuration is -- perhaps it is hipped on both ends? Also, I am concerned that it might be too shallow of a pitch for some metal roof products. Can you email pictures to me? [email protected]

I have seen a metal roof which I want to replicate. The portico was square with columns onto a slate platform/the roof of the portico was made of metal and divided into three sloping pieces which curved up to the brick of the house. They almost replicated an olympic ski jump. I am having extreme difficulty trying to find someone who would or could make this for me. I want it in plain ol' grey metal-----rather looks like a zinc color, but I would be open to suggestions. Any thoughts or ideas???? Thank you.

Your best bet is probably to contact an experienced sheet metal company in your area. They should be able to create this look easily for you.
