What is the difference between PBR and PBR (Reversed) wall panels?
The main difference is which side of the panel is painted. The choice is primarily based on personal preference and aesthetics.
What is the difference between PBR and Ultra-Dek roof panels?
PBR roof panels are fastened to the supporting purlins using screws that penetrate the panel. Detailing methods, trims, and sealants all assist to reduce the risk of roof leaks.
The PBR roof panel system is a very common roof system and is recommended for roof slopes of 1:12 or greater. Our Ultra-Dek roof system is a "standing seam" roof system that hides all roof penetrations under the seamed panel ribs. This reduces the risk of roof leaks and is a superior roof. Lower roof slopes can also be achieved.
Do I need gutters and downspouts?
Gutters and downspouts are not required with respect to the performance of the building. While they allow water to be collected from the roof, they also need to be kept clean. The gutters and downspouts must be kept free from ice that may keep water from properly draining from the roof. In some cases, water on the roof may be blocked sufficiently that it pools and penetrates the roof, causing a leak.
