For a long-lasting, strong, stylish roof for your residential or commercial property, invest in a standing seam metal roof. These roofs feature raised seams that run from the ridge of the roof down to the eaves. The seams are where the roofing panels meet and connect, and they’re what give the roof its signature look.
Standing seam metal roofs make a strong visual statement with their bold, clean lines. They’re also durable, available in a huge array of colors, and can even be designed with optional snow- and solar-retention features to enhance the energy-efficiency. And while they tend to be pricier than other roofing types, they last a very long time.
Standing Seam Metal Roofs’ Hidden Fasteners
The key to the longevity and waterproofing of the standing seam metal roof is its hidden fasteners. Where the panels come together, the material from one panel lips up and over the raised edge of the adjacent panel. This creates a strong seam that conceals any hardware. Because the fasteners are underneath the roofing material, they are not exposed to the elements. This means there are no punctures or holes in the material for screws, so there are no holes for water to seep through and no exposed screws to rust.
A Step Up From Ribbed and Corrugated Metal Roofs
Standing seam metal roofs can be thought of as an upgrade from ribbed and corrugated metal roofs. Though the corrugated style is certainly classic in appearance, the standing seam variety is of higher quality and lasts much longer. Standing seam roofs significantly improve the design of corrugated steel roofs, partially through the previously mentioned concealed fasteners.
The Types of Standing Seam Metal Roofs
There are two primary types of standing seam metal roofs. The snap-lock variety is designed to allow the seams to be locked in place by snapping the panels to one another. The field-locked variety, also referred to as the mechanically-locked type, is made with unique crimping tools that lock the seams into place during the installation process.
Opt for a Standing Seam Metal Roof, and You Won’t Be Disappointed
Choose a standing seam metal roof for your home or business, and you will love the look and protection provided by these vertical metal sheet panels. This roof variety is quickly becoming one of the most popular thanks to its durability, longevity, energy-efficiency, and beauty. On your home or business, this roof will provide a contemporary aesthetic that will boost your property’s value and ultimately make you that much more proud of your space.
