Achieving uniqueness in building construction should start at the top. When choosing a roofing style, many architects choose custom fabricated metal roofs. SMACNA's Custom Fabricated Sheet Metal Roof Test Report describes the performance of the double lock standing seam and batten seam metal roof conforming to the SMACNA Architectural Sheet Metal Manual.
The report describes the testing setup for each roof, the tests that were performed and the conclusions of each test. Members are encouraged to provide copies of this paper to building owners and architects, so that all parties gain a better understanding as to the performance of custom metal roofing.
