While all of our panels are designed to be used on residential projects, a few stand out from the rest for their clean lines, longevity, and ability to stand up to Mother Nature while remaining a beautiful compliment to most residential homes.
When deciding which metal products work best for a home, it can sometimes be difficult to visualize simply by looking at panel profiles. Bridger Steel offers a wide range of products suited for residential builds. Some profiles lend themselves better to metal on homes or residential projects. Metal on homes often comes down to visual appeal and environmental requirements.
When looking for a metal roof, you will first want to understand the environment the roof will need to work in. Is your home prone to hail, high volumes of snow, or high winds? If so, you may want to look at a more structural panel like Mechanical Lock. If you are going for a rustic metal look, many favor the 7/8" Structural Corrugated Panel. The 7/8" Corrugated will hold up to some of the harshest conditions Mother Nature can throw at you. Once you have a good understanding of the environmental demands, you can start narrowing down the profile that matches the look you are trying to achieve.

Choosing a good metal siding for your home can add wonderful sight lines to your home's appearance. Every profile we offer can be used as siding metal on homes. Panels like the 3/4" Corrugated, Ultra Batten, and 6025 Structural Panel seem to be the among the favorites. A corrugated panel is often also used as a wainscot. A corrugated wainscot often complements natural siding finishes.
A very popular design element, the use of corrugated metal as an interior accent panel is seen in everything from rustic to modern designs. We offer a special corrugated panel, 1/4" Corrugated Metal Panel, for kitchen islands, fireplace surrounds, and other accent panel designs. The 1/4" Corrugated offers a unique visual ability to break up sight lines in rooms. The panel also creates wonderful accents and surrounds.
