When it comes to commercial roofing, precision, quality, and customization are paramount. Roofing is not just about sheltering a building. It’s about protecting what’s inside and ensuring that your investment stands the test of time. Maxwell Roofing & Sheet Metal’s in-house sheet metal fabrication division allows us to meet the exact needs of our customers and enables them to maximize the value of their roofing budget.

In this blog post, we’ll explore the advantages of having an in-house sheet metal fabrication facility and how it elevates the precision, quality, and value we can offer your next commercial roofing project.

1. We specialize in a variety of sheet metal fabrication options— from architectural and industrial to custom design.

No two commercial buildings are exactly the same. That’s why we offer a wide range of customization options for our sheet metal roofing components. We can fabricate gutter systems, metal building trim, flashings, and ornamental metal work in a variety of shapes, sizes, and materials. This allows us to create a commercial roof that is perfectly tailored to the unique needs of your building.

We also have the ability to manufacture custom metal roofing accessories, such as copings, ridge caps, vents, and roof curbs. This allows us to create a complete roofing system that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing.

Whether we’re fabricating skylight curb covers for a grocery chain or fabricating and installing copper gutters for a trendy restaurant in downtown Nashville, we recognize what every project needs and can offer custom solutions.

 2. We have an experienced team of professionals who understand the industry and know what every project needs.

No commercial roofing project is the same. Whether you have specific architectural requirements, complex design elements, or unusual building dimensions, our in-house sheet metal fabrication can be tailored to meet your needs.

Our fabrication shop manager Shawn Killgore grew up in commercial roofing and has spent over 15 years fabricating and installing architectural sheet metal. His vast knowledge of the industry makes it easy for him to work with superintendents and understand the special requirements of each project. If there’s a better option for the customer, Shawn and his team can discuss that recommendation before fabrication begins. This significantly minimizes the chance of any confusion during the process and provides opportunities for our customers to invest in the best possible solution.

For example, we recently cut and installed a large cone cap for the top of the silo at the iconic Nashville Farmers’ Market. Our fabrication team worked closely with installers to ensure the dimensions and approach were precise for such a unique project.

3. We can ensure the quality of our materials and craftsmanship is top-notch.

Commercial roofing must withstand various challenges, including extreme weather, environmental factors, and regular wear and tear. To meet these challenges head-on, the quality of materials is non-negotiable. With our in-house sheet metal fabrication, we maintain complete oversight of the quality of materials used in your roofing project.

Our in-house fabrication enhances the level of craftsmanship we provide for every project. Components that are made off-site may not fit perfectly, causing delays, rework, and increased costs. With Maxwell Roofing and Sheet Metal, there are no weak links or compatibility issues. We work to ensure everything fits together perfectly, creating a unified and robust roofing system that you can rely on.

4. We’ve invested in state-of-the-art machinery capable of cutting virtually any material with precision.

Precision is the cornerstone of every successful commercial roofing project. From intricate flashings to custom components, accuracy is non-negotiable. With our in-house sheet metal fabrication, we have complete control over the precision of every piece that goes into your roofing system. Our experienced fabricators work with cutting-edge machinery and technology to ensure that every piece is perfectly tailored to your project’s needs.

We also have the capability to cut virtually any type of material with incredible accuracy. Over the years, our in-house sheet metal division has created everything from custom rain collector boxes for the Metro Nashville Airport Authority to restaurant bar counters and outdoor signage.
