When you get a quote on the Perma-Roof, would you mine sharing that information with the forum? I am very interested in the price from a professional standpoint. Looking at the information on the web site. it does look like a good concept. I found the information here.
I would have a couple of questions about their roof system.
They say that the roof is attached to the home with a perimeter bracket that attaches to the roof line of the mobile home. From the drawings, I would have to assume that the steel panels are screwed to this perimeter bracket. How do they insure these screws won't leak? Also, are there fasteners only at the top and bottom of the steel panels? What holds the panels down in the middle if there is serious wind? Is there some type of locking cleat? I am thinking they have a good answer, but would be curious as to what that is. They talk about the 800-1000 pounds of steel not lifting, but that weight alone would not stop a serious wind from trying to lift the panels. Also, that is not a lot of weight for a second roof. It must be less and a pound per foot, judging by their information.
I would also ask them about the 12" overhang on the eaves. It looks like it is just the 26 or 29 gauge steel making the overhang. Would it be safe to stand on top of that 12" ?
Any information you could relay back to us would be greatly appreciated.
