Traditional Metal Roofing

We believe a building is only as good as the roof that’s on it.  For that reason, FHTC owns its own roll forming equipment for standing seam sheet metal roofing.  This allows us to purchase rolls of material and form it to fit the client’s buildings on the job site, whether the project is new construction or a restoration, and the pans we make are full-length, allowing us to produce work with no horizontal seams.  We work with Galvanized steel, Terne II, Copper, or pre-painted Galvalume metals.  We can form the necessary trim on site with our portable brake, and we can hand seam difficult jobs.  

Our roofs are finished with matching, historically correct half-round gutter and downspouts sytems which protect the building from storm water splash and ground saturation which can cause foundation failure.   

Any notable structural investment should be protected by a lightning suppression system.  We design such systems and install them using quality copper, brass, and stainless steel conductors.
