Metal standing seam roof

By far the most common style of metal roofing system is the standing seam metal roof. They are made up of continuous metal panels that extend from the ridge of the roof all the way down to the eaves. Each panel is joined at a seam that is elevated above the level of the roof, hence the term “standing seam.” What makes a standing seam so appealing? The seams on most roofs are the lowest and most fragile elements on any roof. Since seams are prone to leakage, this is where most water damage happens. They are less susceptible to settling rain since they are elevated higher than the roofing plates. Furthermore, since the seams extend vertically only (rather than both vertically and horizontally), the metal roof has less seams overall.

Metal roofs FAQs

Metal roofing might not be the first solution that many land owners consider when reroofing or building a new structure, however it should be. Metal roofing has distinct features as opposed to other roofing products, and these distinctions are often combined with significant benefits in terms of durability and sustainability.

How long would a metal roofs last compared to other traditional roofing products, such as asphalt shingles?

When subjected to extreme weather, such as direct sunshine or heavy snowfall, an asphalt shingle roof will wear out in 15-20 years, causing ice jams to develop along the roof eaves. Metal roofing, on the other hand, is very resistant to environmental extremes. A freshly built metal roof is likely to last 40 to 60 years.

Is a metal roof more expensive than other forms of roofing?

The installed cost of a metal roof is determined by the same factors that influence the cost of every roofing installation: roof height, roof pitch (steep roofs cost more), and roof complexity (the number of valleys, ridges, skylights, and dormers). However, a metal roof can cost two to three times as much as an asphalt shingle roof. A metal roof usually costs the same as a tile or cedar shingle roof, but less than a slate roof.

How would a metal roof do in inclement weather?

Today’s metal roofs are highly sturdy and immune to weather-related degradation due to the super-durable factory-applied finishes used on metal roofing. A metal roof, unlike asphalt and wood shingle roofing, sheds snow, preventing crippling ice jams from building.
