An integrated anti-siphon groove on panel laps allows Tuff-Rib to be installed on roofs as low as 2.5:12. Strong 3/4″ trapezoidal ribs enable installation over solid deck and open frame applications.

Tuff-Rib is at home on residential applications, but functions well as a light commercial panel as well.

A high tensile steel core allows Tuff-Rib to easily handle the high winds in Florida and even Miami-Dade Hurricane Zones.

Tuff-Rib in Clay

Phillip T. Zephyrhills, Florida

Here are a couple pics of roof my son, grandson and I installed this past winter (2018) I prepped it myself using a reflective foil over the shingled roof, 1 x 4 furring strips on 24″ centers and your metal roofing over strips. It took the three of us 3 days of 4- 6 hours to complete the install from start to finish. Days we worked were very hot. Very happy with the metal roof.

Doug S. Valley View, Texas

I just want to say that the quality of the material and the customer service is second to none. The fast manufacturing and delivery time was fantastic. It’s not a very big garage roof, only 20 sheets of 16′ metal but I am extremely happy with the metal and service.
