Workers apply metal panels to the roof of Firstar Bank on Thursday. The bank decided to replace its older shingle roof with the metal roof, which has a higher Energy Star efficiency rating, a 20-year warranty and low maintenance requirements, said Firstar spokeswoman Ginger Batson. All panels are expected to be in place by Saturday with finishing touches due for completion early next week, she said. The general contractor is Mike Ross Construction, and the subcontractor is Dave Stanley of ABBCO Roofing.
