What is Sheet Metal?

Sheet metal is the material that serves as the foundation to the trade of metalworking. An industrial process transforms a more raw version of metal into thin and flat pieces. But why should you care? The main reason has to do with the fact that sheet metal has a wide variety of applications in terms of the objects you regularly see throughout the average day–like roofs!

Sheet metal is categorized in terms of it’s thickness. You can purchase it as a flat piece or in a coil. Depending on what you want to use it for, sheet metal can be bent into a multitude of shapes.


One of our sheet metal specialties is architectural siding and roofing, which you might know as architectural sheet metal. We specialize in creating an entire envelope system for your building, with a whole department dedicated to the process.
