EXPOSED FASTENER PANELS
Exposed fastener panels are screwed down metal panels that reveal a bolt or a screw on an externally exposed surface. Generally metal roofing or siding using these panels are more common for uninhabited and unheated projects such as barns, sheds & carports. Because this type of panel does not use hand-sewing or mechanical seaming to fasten, it is more widely available and can be purchased in most home stores.
How does it work? Most exposed fastener panel systems are made using lap seams that overlap one another and are secured together with the edges of the panels by a screw. Exposed fastener panels are great for DIYers as they are easy to install, and they can save you the expense of labor costs. The exposed fastener panel is also the more economical option versus the competing standing seam panel. Because the fasteners are exposed, this panel type can be accessorized with color matching screws as well.
