MCA’s Metal Mastery Demo Area

Metal’s growing popularity and market share requires that contractors and installers understand the nuances and proper techniques for forming panels and installing metal roofing and wall systems. Understanding such factors leads to improved contractor efficiency and heightened building owner satisfaction. In this series of clinics, presenters from the Metal Construction Association and Metal Roofing Alliance will share industry best practices for the installation of metal shingles, standing-seam roofing panels, retrofit systems, and metal wall systems and will demonstrate proper techniques for on-site roll forming and machine maintenance.


METALCON Training Zone

This hands-on training area will feature demonstrations and education using a variety of mock-ups and materials including painted steel, aluminum, zinc, copper and other exotic materials. Training will focus on proper detailing and utilization of the right tools to enhance the skills of contractors, remodelers and others, enabling them to deliver their best, most efficient and cleanest work when installing various metal roof offerings and systems.

Led by John Sheridan of Sheridan Metal Resources and his team of experts, demonstrations will be offered in English and Spanish and tools will be available for audience testing and purchase.

Located in the Exhibit Hall, open during expo hours.
