This project highlights the installation of a Nu-Ray NRM-1000 architectural metal roofing system on a home with a turret. Our skilled and dedicated metal roofing crews worked precisely using exacting cuts and specialized tools. The expertise of our skilled roofing team underscores Three Tree Roofing's commitment to roofing excellence.
The Nu-Ray metal panels chosen for this installation are custom to the roof, with each panel cut to fit the specific dimensions of the house. Bumped-up pencil ridges in the panels enhance the architectural appeal and contribute to breaking up the roof design, providing a defined look. Nu-Ray NRM-1000 roof panels feature a snap-lock concealed fastener, allowing for the innovative approach of using clips for the solar racking that pinch onto the pencil ribs without nails, a unique feature, preventing the need for poking holes into the metal during the racking system installation.
Besides the roofing system, the project involved the installation of new 6K-style gutters and downspouts because of their effectiveness in handling water flow off the roof. When water is pouring down, it shoots off the roof like it's going down a slide, so a robust gutter system to help funnel the water to the downspouts and control the water is crucial.
Collaboration with the solar installers was essential in coordinating the efforts between the roofing team and the installer. Collaborative efforts to complete this metal roofing project created a phenomenal Nu-Ray metal roof with solar panels for the homeowner.

Okay. I don't know where to start on this one. A lot is going on. I am excited to have this project completed. It turned out fantastic. This house has a turret. How cool is that? We always talk about the expertise of our crews. Our crews are so incredible - dedicated metal crews. It is something they do every day, using the same cuts and the same tools with precision. That way, they can be the best at what they do. Their skills and craftsmanship are highly valued.
This roof is a Nu-Ray NRM-1000, an architectural metal roofing system from Nu-Ray Metal Products. The color is matte black. This roof panel has a pencil rib profile. You can see the bumped-up pencil ridges in the panel. It breaks up the roof design and gives it some definition. It also hides some imperfections that could be on the roof deck. This roof is a great option, and it will look great for the 50 years it will last.
We also added new 6 K style gutters and downspouts. 6K is a big gutter and downspout and works well with metal roofing. When water is pouring down the roof, it shoots off the roof like it's going down a slide, so we want to use a large gutter system to help funnel the water to the downspouts and control the water.
After we completed the metal roof, solar was installed. We work with various solar installers, but this homeowner selected their installer. The solar installer added the solar panels. We worked with the installer to coordinate our schedules and to ensure we were all on the same page. The clips for the solar racking pinch onto the pencil ribs without nails, preventing poking holes into the metal to install the racking system. It is cool.
