What You Need to Know About Max-Rib Metal Roofs
L & L Contractors gets its max-rib metal roofing from Murfreesboro’s own Metal Max. The metal we use is available in both .29 and .26 gauge galvalume (which is 2x more resistant to corrosion than galvanized) panels, and is coated in Valspar paint (which is incredibly durable and stain-resistant).
Choosing the type of metal panel that is best for you will depend on the desired application. If you need a simple shade and shelter panel, the Max-Rib Utility will likely suit you just fine, whereas any residential application will require the Max-Rib Ultra panels, which are protected by a Galvalume substrate with a fade and chalk resistant Kynar 500 based Fluropon® paint system.
Advantages Of Max-Rib Roofs
- Max-Rib is a light-gauge roofing option with exposed fastener panels that can be used in commercial, residential, and agricultural applications.
- This is a workhorse brand known for fighting hard against the tendency of a metal roof to fade or “chalk,” which occurs when tree leaves rub chalk off the panels and cause them to fade over time.
- Its resistance to these common problems is due to the ThermoForming process that all Max-Rib panels undergo. Due to the painting coating and zinc in the metallic galvanized coating on each Max-Rib panel, they are protected from tension bend cracking and premature corrosion.
- Max-Rib panels are low profile (3/4″) and can be installed on as low as a 1:12 pitch if sealant is used on the sidelaps. The ideal pitch for a Max-Rib roof is 3:12, according to the manufacturer.
