About Curved Metal Roofing
Curved metal roofing is a rather recent innovation that focuses primarily on the aesthetic appeal compared to durability and cost. Curved shape roofs, though, are not just for the lovers of high-end design; some buildings require arched roofs due to their unique design.
Most people are familiar with the rounded roofs of barns, which date back to World War II. These types can be found all across America in different regions like Midwestern states and cornfields; however there is more than one type that has this design element – some were built during periods when it was impossible for certain areas such as Europe or Japan to have large scale farmland development because they did not have enough space available due to their population numbers.
Others pursued curved metal roofing construction after 1945 following an improved architectural style where side walls don’t need supporting pillars. Their lighter weight makes them ideal candidates if you’re looking forward to building your next home.
The type of material used for curved tile roofs can be largely determined by what kind and how much curve there is in your desired design. For example, aluminum has been found to allow tighter curves while steel may work better with larger arcs because it’s more rigid than other options like zinc or copper which are also good choices if you plan on having smooth edges around all four sides.
If your construction has other particularities vis-a-vis the area you are building, stainless-steel panels would make an excellent choice since they offer great protection against corrosion from rainwater splashing onto them during bad weather conditions.

What is a curved roof called?
There are many different types of curved roofs, some of which are:
- Cranked Ridge roof in which there are two flat roofs that merge to form a peak at the top
- Barrel Vaulted Roof which is the most common roof type having a symmetrical curved shape and no angles.
- S-Shaped panels combine convex and concave curves yielding a striking visual apperance.
- Elliptical and Freeform Curved metal panels which can take on any shape and angle to fulfil the engineer’s vision.
- Bullnose Roof which looks like a typical roof with a rounded bottom edge.
- Gothic Arched roofs which form a gothic arch at the highest point while the sides are mechanically curved.
