St. George's Serbian Orthodox Church

McElroy Metal

Met-Tile roofing from McElroy Metal was selected to re-roof the St. George’s Serbian Orthodox Church in Duluth, MN, because it looks like clay tile and provided the “Old World” look required by the church, which dates back to the early 1900s. According to the installer, K.F. Loosen Construction Co., panels were applied over the existing asphalt shingle roofing after the structural engineer verified that the roof framing could bear the additional load of the Met-Tile panels, which weigh 125 lb. per square.

The project utilized about 4000 sq. ft. of Met-Tile’s tile facsimile roofing system in a Morocco Red, “Super Series® 4800 Super Cool™ SMP paint finish. Met-Tile panels are made of 26 GA AZ50 zinc-aluminum alloy coated steel and are 3-ft wide.

Loosen overlapped Met-Tile panels of 16-ft and 12-ft lengths to cover the 26-ft. run from ridge to eave. Because of the stepped design of the panels and a 1-ft overlap utilized by the contractor, the resulting installation is both watertight and seamless in appearance. Loosen also had to cut the flashings into the masonry parapet walls and cover the parapets with metal so that the entire roof area no longer required maintenance.

Roof designer, general contractor and installer: K.F. Loosen Construction Co., Inc., Cloquet, MN, served as roof designer and installer. The structural engineer was John R. Woodworth, P.E., Northland Consulting Engineers, LLP, Duluth, MN.

Met-Tile roofing is a product of McElroy Metal.
