Metal Patio Roof – Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky

Deer Park Roofing replaced the asphalt shingles on this patio roof with a beautiful new standing seam metal roof.

 

This customer wanted to remove the asphalt shingles from their patio roof and install a standing seam metal roof. Since the roof deck was already in poor condition, our estimator recommended installing a bead board roof deck that would create an attractive patio ceiling.
