The most important function of metal overhang for roofs is to help keep water off your siding, windows, and doors. It also pushes water further away from your building which helps protect your foundation. While it’s impossible to stop all wind-driven rain from reaching your walls, overhangs can make a big difference, especially if there is just one story under the overhang.
How Much Overhang Should a Roof Have?
Simpson Steel Building Company gives you the option of adding 18” overhangs on the sides or ends of your metal building’s roof. This can create a beautiful looking building aesthetic and provides some great durability benefits. Overhangs will include a soffit (reverse panels) underneath and will be trimmed out for a pleasing aesthetic appeal.
