Domes and Dormers as Metal Roofing Applications

Why Custom Metal Dormers?

Custom Metal Dormers and Natural Light

The decorative dormers for commercial or residential building projects can help maximize the natural light available. The custom dome captures the natural light, and depending on the dimensions of the metal dome or dormer, it can be distributed throughout the space.

Eco-friendly Metal Dormers and Ventilation

Metal dormers also help improve ventilation. A custom metal dormer on a residential structure can improve the ventilation for the attic space. Improved ventilation for the structure improves the residence air quality and can also lower energy consumption by improving the flow of air through the structure.

Decorative Metal Dormers and Design

Customized roofing, such as dormers and domes, adds affordable curb appeal to the structure. The custom metal dormers are an easy way to transform the appearance a property. The aesthetics of an exterior accent, such as a metal dormer, can take a building from uninspired to contemporary. Custom metal dormers can effectively draw inspiration from a classical era. They give the traditional building a historically accurate makeover without affecting the overall design of a structure.

Customized Metal Dormers Add Space.

Custom dormers make it easy to add space to a building. As part of a retrofit or a conversion project, the custom dormer can optimize the space of a room. When the proper dimensions are selected for a dormer, adequate space is incorporated into the structure in a tasteful manner.

Why Custom Metal Domes?

Metal Domes and Acoustics

Decorative metal domes enhance the acoustics of a structure. This is why the metal dome is commonly used in concert halls, theatres and cathedrals. Variations in the custom designed dome determine how the sound is distributed. The sound waves gravitate to the focal point of the room and bounce along the way, preserving the original sound quality.

Custom Metal Domes and Space

Custom metal domes help a builder or architect enclose a space within a number of design constraints. Fewer building materials are required to create the customized metal dome. The customized roofing solution requires far less space than other expansion projects. Improved utilization of space benefits the consumer by creating a more cost-effective expansion alternative.

Decorative Metal Domes and Installation

Metal domes are characterized by easy installation. The curved paneling is easy to install, with little assembly time required. Incredibly light in weight, the decorative metal dome offers a streamlined installation process, reducing the amount of labor and time required to complete the project.

Eco-friendly Metal Domes and Energy Consumption

Metal custom domes are helpful in reducing energy consumption for a structure by as much as 50 percent in some cases. As it improves air circulation for a building, the heating and cooling costs for a building are better controlled. The reduction in time required to heat and cool the building coupled with the eco-friendly building products used in the dome design contribute to lower energy costs. Solar panels can line the exterior of the metal domes, which reduces the carbon footprint for the building.

Decorative Metal

Decorative metal panels are a great way to update the kitchen, living room or dining room of a home. Decorative metals panels can also liven up an office space or a commercial building. Interior applications are available in a variety of metal finishes and are fabricated with incredibly durable metals like zinc and copper.

Kitchen and metal applications

An entire kitchen can be transformed through interior design applications. MetalTech-USA offers a variety of design and customization options in interior paneling and metal finishing. Within the kitchen, it can be used with countertops, sinks and kitchen appliances.

To further promote durability for the decorative metal interior paneling, a protective coating can be applied to any of the interior applications. Metal finishes and intricate designs can be incorporated into any surface area within a kitchen.

Interior paneling and kitchen safety

Metal interior paneling and metal finishing are used in the kitchen for a number of reasons, including kitchen safety. Just as metal interior paneling is commonly used in the kitchen areas of restaurants and hospitals for their hygienic properties, they are also widely used in residential projects for the same reason. The non-porous metal interior applications are sanitary, which helps promote kitchen safety. The hygienic properties of metal interior applications make them easier to maintain and keep clean.

Metal interior applications throughout the home

Decorative metal interior applications can be used throughout the home as part of a larger remodeling effort or as a part of a smaller metal interior design project. Interior wall cladding can be fabricated with a variety of finishes such as perforation, corrugation or pixilation. Metal art, created from any realistic rendering, can also be incorporated into any interior facade application or accent.

Metal interior paneling adds dimension to the uninspired living room. It could be the cost-effective upgrade solution for a dining room where the family gathers. It could also be the finishing touch for the home office. The design possibilities with finishes and interior paneling are limitless. The versatile, decorative interior paneling and metal finishing are ideal for use throughout the home. From interior facade applications to abstract renderings, these interior design elements make sense in any portion of the home.

Decorative interior paneling in the commercial properties

The bland commercial building can be converted with the use of customized metal applications. Metal interior design applications for commercial properties are multi-functional.

Interior paneling effectively manipulates the natural lighting available within a building. Interior design applications also serve as a means to maximize airflow in an office space of a commercial building. It is possible to create branded memorabilia from any realistic image as metal art. A portrait commemorating the founder of a company or displaying the company logo fabricated into a metal interior piece for the office space is also an option. Metal interior applications are fabricated using advanced proprietary systems with zinc, Cor-Ten, stainless steel, copper and titanium. An array of metal finishes is available for the interior wall cladding and decorative metal art pieces.

Zinc in interior paneling

Zinc has a gray appearance in the earlier stages, but develops a darkened blue-gray patina as it oxidizes. Zinc projects are made from sheets of zinc material formed over a wood or other substrate backing. Zinc has excellent antimicrobial properties, which helps to kill germs. One of the softer metals, zinc lends itself to a distressed look with routine use. If preferred, a protective coating, applied periodically, will keep the counter or sink looking new.

Stainless Steel in metal interior applications

Stainless steel makes for great-looking appliances. It is used extensively in commercial applications like restaurant kitchens, hospitals and cafeterias due to its aesthetic and hygienic qualities. It is easily cleaned, almost impossible to stain and indifferent to water and spills. Stainless steel possesses phenomenal strength and solid scratch resistance as well as good aesthetic qualities. It looks versatile and works well in both modern industrial settings, cottage interiors and more.

Copper in interior design applications

Copper can be used for a warmer look. Copper has a relative softness making it slightly more vulnerable to denting and scratching than steel. However, despite this drawback, copper countertops, tables and hoods impart a warm ambiance to a home—a cross between old world and modern style. Many different finishing techniques are available from a hammered texture to embossing. If desired, a special coating can be used to prevent the natural patination process from turning the copper green.

Brass

Brass is a good choice to add the warmth of copper, but the strength of brass. Brass also makes a good accent metal for stainless steel and zinc.
