About the Standing Seam Roof

The standing seam metal roof is made up of many interlocking metal panels that are placed vertically from the ridge of the roof downwards. The most commonly used metal for standing seam systems is galvanized steel, and also popular are Galvalume and Galvalume Plus. The standing seam system can constitute roll form metal, metal sheeting, or metal panels. Standing seam systems provide the ultimate in durable roofing, as they are puncture resistant and can withstand even the most extreme forces of nature.

The Benefits of the Standing Seam Metal Roof

The standing seam metal roof will remain weather tight in all conditions, including hurricanes and hail storms. This is achieved by raising a weather tight seam above the roof’s drainage area, and organic sealants are applied to all roll roofing standing seam systems. Standing seam roofing is applied to your house or building by using specially concealed clips, which retain the position of the panels and allow them to expand and contract during temperature change, and resist strong winds. Standing seam also offers excellent drainage solutions for snow and rain, and eliminates the problems of ponding water. Standing seam is also energy efficient, in that it can reflect the suns rays, and has special insulation installed between the metal panels and purlins to create an independent insulation system. Furthermore, standing seam requires next to no maintenance, as it is resistant to cracking, shrinking, eroding, perforating, puncturing, rusting, and corroding. Overall, standing seam is an excellent and lasting investment.
