There are two difference measurements discussed when referring to metal roofing: square feet and linear feet. Square feet refer to the area while linear feet refer to the length of the metal sheets. For example, a metal sheet 3 feet wide and 10 feet long has 30 square feet and 10 linear feet.

If you give us a picture with dimensions, we can investigate getting the trim made to your specifications.
Do you do eave trough and/or waterspouts?
No. Our supplier cannot make these for you. We can help you find someone else to call.
How noisy is the metal roof?
If you are remembering the noisy metal roof sounds of the past, the metal roof on a modern house is a different experience. With insulation, sound barriers, and attic space, most metal roof sounds are not echoing into the house. You may hear a slight pitter patter on the roof but it is a soothing sound.
