This course will explore benefits, applications, and installation considerations for pre-finished steel siding and roofing products engineered for maximum strength and durability on multi-family/senior living structures. We will show that these products are innovative and offer many sustainable and high-performance attributes. We will also explore two senior living case studies where steel siding and roofing were specified.
- Examine the history of modern metal siding and roofing materials.
- Compare steel to other roofing and siding materials, including appearance, durability, fire resistance, sustainability, and ease of installation.
- Demonstrate the performance benefits of steel roofing and siding products, review specification considerations, and explore case studies where they were used.
- Describe installation considerations for steel siding and roofing.
Pre-requisite: Basic knowledge of roofing construction.
