138T & 238T

While standing seam roofing systems have been used for generations, 138T and 238T panels feature technological advances in roofing that set a new standard for standing seam performance. 138T and 238T systems are classified as symmetrical standing seam systems and offer many advantages including patented recover solutions featuring the industry's best method to recover existing metal or shingle roofs.  138T and 238T panels are mechanically seamed along with the seam caps. Mechanical seamers and hand crimpers are available for rent through Developmental Industries (DI) at mcelroyseamers.com, a website created just for McElroy customers. The rental fees for each type of equipment can be found on this site as well as additional information you may need to be aware of within the terms and conditions. DI is the only approved supplier for this type of equipment.  

 138T and 238T advantages include:
