Swenson Shear creates innovative tools that simplify and reduce the time and effort contractors spend up on the roof on metal roofing jobsites. Since 1959, they have created quality metal roofing tools for contractors that are proudly designed and manufactured in America. A contractor-favorite product from their line is the Base and Ridge Bender.
The Base and Ridge Bender is a product designed for working with stone-coated shingles and shake style steel panels. Contractors use the equipment to bend stone-coated steel in order to keep water from getting into the metal roof system. The base bender portion of the tool can be used on pieces of stone-coated steel that are installed at the side walls, rakes, hips and valley of the roof in order to keep water from moving into the roof and causing damage. The ridge bender function is useful for working with panels when there is a short course in the field, head wall and ridge.
With a maximum ridge bend of 55 inches and high-quality design, the Base and Ridge Bender is a great product for any metal roofing contractor to add to their collection. The Base and Ridge Bender can also be used alongside other Swenson Shear products, such as the Stone Coat Cutter, to create a more dynamic and efficient experience working on a metal roof project from start to finish.
The Base and Ridge Bender is a great tool choice for contractors looking for easy to transport and operate tool that can reduce the labor time spent on metal roofing installation projects and elevate the overall installation process.
