Metal Roofs

Tuff Rib

It is the most economical panel we carry. Tuff-Rib is also known under other names including MasterRib, Panel-Loc Plus, GrandRib 3, and other names. Tuff-Rib is a long lasting economical metal roofing or siding product. Many of our colors are Energy Star approved for great energy efficiency. This is our base-package metal roofing system, and typically runs anywhere from 25% to 35% more expensive than a shingle roof on a solidly-sheathed structure.

5V- Crimp

As one of the first metal roofing panels to gain nationwide popularity, 5V-Crimp has been used for decades. 5V-Crimp is versatile and performs well in residential as well as agricultural applications. The traditional double “v” shaped ribs and low-profile make 5V-Crimp a great choice for nearly any style roof. Most of our projects that involve his style of metal are barns and other accessory structures as seen below on this beautiful barn out in Fairview.

Standing Seam

Standing Seam metal roofing is what we at Balken Roofing consider the “nuclear option” when it comes to sloped roofing systems. Made out of heavy duty steel, and installed by way of non-exposed fasteners and crimping into place at transitions, standing seam has incredible wind resistance. When installed properly, it has no real penetrations to leak from. This type of roofing system is used more for commercial properties, but lends an amazing aesthetic to the right type of residential project as well.  Standing seam is very low maintenance, and lasts much longer due to its built-in lack of exposed fasteners. This type of roofing is very expensive to install, but if you’re in it for the long-haul you will save on maintenance costs and replacement costs for decades. Seen below is a lovely litte West Asheville bungalow with a brand new standing seam roof!
