There’s always a right way and a wrong way to do just about anything. Sadly, there are metal roofing companies that take WAY too many shortcuts. From using 30# felt as under-layment, installing closed valleys instead of open valleys, to not kerfing chimney flashing, we’ve seen it all. Don’t be one of the people who have to call us because there were problems after your metal roof was installed improperly. Let us do it right the first time.
In the case of closed vs. open valleys, it’s MUCH easier and faster (making it cheaper) to install a closed valley vs. an open valley. Closed valleys tend to clog and become gathering places for debris and leafs. Below, you’ll see an open valley that we’ve installed, followed by two photos of closed valleys that we didn’t (and wouldn’t) install. The photo with the valley cap off shows you how the installer effortlessly cut the panels and installed a decorative piece over them, plus the debris that’s collected. These types of shortcuts may save you some money initially, but will cause you long term pain and frustration over time. Let the experts at Distinctive Metal Roofing install your metal roof the right way the first time and never worry about your roof again!
