Materials and Gauges

Englert’s metal roof­ing mate­ri­als are envi­ron­men­tally friendly and are 100% recy­clable. Each of our mate­ri­als can earn up to six LEED credit for recy­cla­bil­ity, regional mate­r­ial sourc­ing, and build­ing re-use.

 

Gal­val­ume & Gal­val­ume Plus

Gal­val­ume® and Gal­val­ume Plus®, which Englert offers exclu­sively, are pro­duced by coat­ing steel with a spe­cial Aluminum-Zinc alloy that pro­vides more than twice the cor­ro­sion resis­tance of gal­va­nized steel by deliv­er­ing the opti­mum com­bi­na­tion of the fea­tures of alu­minum and zinc.

Our Gal­val­ume steel, avail­able in 22, 24 and 26-gauge coil or sheet, is an ideal roof­ing mate­r­ial because of its strength, extra­or­di­nary out­door cor­ro­sion resis­tance and longevity.

Gal­val­ume is offered in both bare and pre-painted ver­sions. Gal­val­ume Plus is the same bare Gal­val­ume prod­uct with a thin, clear acrylic coat­ing. Gal­val­ume Plus can be roll-formed dry with­out van­ish­ing oil, mak­ing it much eas­ier to form and install safely.

 

Alu­minum

Englert aluminum’s nat­ural prop­er­ties of light weight, strength and longevity make it a very desir­able roof­ing mate­r­ial. Alu­minum is more mal­leable than steel and can gen­er­ally be formed into more intri­cate and detailed prod­uct designs.

Because Alu­minum won’t rust it per­forms par­tic­u­larly well in coastal envi­ron­ments where salt air can cause cor­ro­sion, and it is also ideal for re-roof appli­ca­tions because it does not require struc­tural reinforcement.

 

Cop­per

Our cop­per, avail­able in 16 ounce and 20 ounce, is the metal of choice for build­ings with a long design life. Although more expen­sive than alu­minum and steel, cop­per is rooted in cen­turies of use because it will not rust and has no fin­ish to scratch or peel.
