If you are looking for a strong, durable and long-lasting roof, a standing seam metal roof is a great choice. Fortenberry Roofing Co., your local experts in residential and commercial roofing, takes a closer look at its features and benefits.
About Standing Seam Metal Roofs
This type of metal roofing system features metal panels that span vertically from the roof ridge to the eaves. The term “standing seam” refers to the seams between the panels that are raised above the level of the roof. Seams are the weak point of any building material, which is why they are constructed as such to prevent water intrusion.
Each seam is connected by fasteners, which are concealed to give the roof a smooth, continuous appearance. As for the panels, they can be created in an off-site factory or formed by feeding rolls of metal into mobile forming machines that a residential and commercial roof contractor brings on site. The panels are usually made either of Galvalume-coated steel or aluminum.
Advantages of Standing Seam Metal Roofs
A standing seam metal roof has several unique advantages that make them an attractive option for your roof replacement project.
Durability – This type of metal roofing is inherently impact-resistant. It does not shatter or crack. With the right coatings and regular maintenance, it won’t show signs of corrosion. It has an expected life span of 50 years, which is twice as long as the typical asphalt shingles.
Energy-Efficient – If you are looking to increase your home’s energy efficiency, you can consider light-colored standing seam metal roofs. This helps prevent solar heat gain and ensure your home remains comfortable without relying too much on your cooling system.
Sleek Appearance – The metal roof’s smooth, straight lines can give any home an industrial vibe with a modern touch.
