Metal Roofing Trim–Artistry Perfected over Decades by EMF Craftsmen
Metal roofing trim serves several purposes. In addition to giving a metal panel system a clean and finished appearance,
metal roofing trim also helps a metal roof do its job of protecting the roofs joints and edges from the destructive forces of Mother Nature.
To give your clients the high-end look they expect, all our trims are available in a variety of profiles and finishes to match our metal roofing panels. Need a custom trim? EMF craftsmen have decades of experience creating beautiful design elements that make your project stand out,
including curved, arched and other unique requirements.
Cleats are used for fastening roof panels, usually along the roof edge and areas of trim, flashing and gutter installations. They are typically longer than fasteners and can be made on-site to suit the application. Once installed, cleats are concealed and not visible.
Inside and outside corner trims are an attractive detail trim to seal the corners on metal wall applications. We custom fabricate corner trims for our corrugated, PBR and RIB metal panels.
Eaves are the overhanging edges of a roof over the sidewall panels. They help direct water away from walls and windows. Eave trim, also referred to as an eave drip, is installed at the edge of metal roof panels, creating a clean, finished appearance while also redirecting rain run-off away from fascias and soffits.
Technically not a trim, flashings are critical to ensuring that water does not penetrate or seep under a roof. Its typically installed around roof hips and ridges, chimneys, vent pipes, skylights, and anywhere there are joints or two pieces of roofing that meet.
Also known as rake trim, gable trim is a finishing piece of metal flashing used along the edges of a metal roof line where the edge of the metal roof panel meets the endwall panels.
Gutters and downspouts are vital to weather-proofing and maintaining the integrity of any type of building. Working together, they protect windows doors and a buildings foundation from water damage by redirecting rain water away from the roof and onto the ground in a controlled manner.
Used on top of the ridge line or hip of a roof, a ridge cap sits on top of the rib of a metal roofing panel to allow adequate space for ventilation when used with a ventilated closure strip. A ridge cap covers the joint between two rising faces of a roof.
A valley is created by two intersecting slopes of a metal roof that create a valley. Valley trim, installed prior to panels in the valley area, is a raised section at the low point of the “valley” to prevent water from travelling up the opposite slope and penetrating the roof.
