Elizabethtown Residence

Elizabethtown, KY United States

 

Project Description

Durable metal panels from Metal Sales™ elegantly reroof a private residence in Elizabethtown, KY.

Nestled at the end of a residential street in rural Elizabethtown – one hour south of Louisville – stands the Keith residence. The Neo-Mediterranean style home has the clean lines of Frank Lloyd Wright with Spanish influences. The exterior of the home is taupe-colored stone with dark bronze accents around the windows and glass entry. Clean lines and a bright red door stand out among the surrounding trees and vegetation.

The Keiths, frustrated with the short lifespan of asphalt shingles, were looking for a more sustainable and sensible roofing option. The original roof was constructed with traditional asphalt shingles, which had already been replaced once. Just six years after the first replacement, another was required. This led the owners to choose long-lasting standing seam metal roof panels.

Metal Sales Vertical Seam panels

The aesthetic and functional benefits of a standing seam metal roof make it an ideal choice for residential applications. The inherent strength of steel makes the roof strong but lightweight at the same time. Little to no maintenance is involved for owners. In most cases, a metal roof will last forty to fifty years. That is equivalent to three to four layers of a traditional shingle roof, depending on the location.

The residence utilizes 110 squares of Metal Sales’ 24 gauge, 16” wide Vertical Seam panels with a PVDF (Kynar 500®) finish in their Dark Bronze color. The color of the panels compliment the exterior of the home and match the existing accents around the windows and front door.

In addition to their 50-year life, Metal Sales panels come in a variety of colors that are listed with ENERGY STAR®. The metal panels improve a building’s energy-efficiency, reducing the amount of energy needed for cooling. Metal roofing’s ability to cover existing non-metal roofing, along with its longer life span, reduces the amount of chemical-based materials that end up in landfills.

In addition to being 100% recyclable, metal panels contain a high percentage of recycled material. While the EPA says that 11 million tons of asphalt shingles end up in landfills every year, steel is the number-one recycled material in North America according to the Steel Recycling Institute (SRI).
