What is Architectural Sheet Metal Roofing?

Architectural sheet metal roofing refers to the act of making parts – or an entire building – from metal or metal paneling. It is not only a science; there is a strong artistic element to it. In order to achieve specific aesthetics, the shape, texture and design elements of sheet metal are completely customized when it is fabricated.

Central Roofing also serves as a parent company to Central Sheet Metal Company, a provider of the largest suite of sheet metal and panel installation options in the Twin Cities and in the state of Minnesota. Central Sheet Metal Company works with a strong network of skilled and experienced technicians, project managers and fabricators utilizing the most modern equipment and technology.
