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.
