A v-crimp roof is a style of tin roof. Roofs made from tin are great for sheds and small structures like garages needing secure and in-expensive roofing that is relatively easy to install. It may not be the prettiest, but for the labor and cost, it is extremely effective. Check the building codes for your community before buying the roofing or ask your roofer if it is okay to use tin for your roof.
Tin roofing materials come in sheets that have a pattern pressed into them. The R-panel type requires special roofing screws that have washers so that they automatically seal the whole you screw into the metal sheet and the plywood underneath. The V-crimp style does not need the specialized roofing nails, which can be expensive, making the install simpler.
The V in the crimp is a rib. The panels are usually two feet wide with half-inch high ribs. They come in different gauges or weights of tin and steel. Most often they come already coated and painted in attractive colors and to protect the steel against rust. The finishing coats can be galvanized or painted. The heavy gauge steel metal roofing is used on homes and with a forty year guarantee, homeowners have found it to be an attractive and practical roofing material.
This style of metal roofing panel is the most commonly used throughout the United States and most roofing companies have experience in installing it. Whether for a shed or a lovely ranch style house, consult with your local roofer about installing a v-crimp roof.
