What’s A Standing Seam Roof?
Standing seam is a roofing system composed of metal panels and concealed fasteners. A high-strength, weather-tight design results in outstanding durability, especially in extreme weather. Roofing panels are secured to the roof deck using clamps rather than nails or screws, meaning there are no holes that could permit moisture to seep through. Covering the fasteners safeguards against premature failure.
Benefits of standing seam metal roofs include:
- Long Lifespan
- High Durability
- Stands Up To Rain, Wind, and Snow
- Many Colors Are Available
- Increases Property Value
- Resists Fire
- Prevents Moisture Intrusion
- Better Curb Appeal
- Repels Bacteria
- Environmentally Friendly
No matter your location, extreme weather is bound to strike at some point. Standing seam metal roofs are engineered to meet stringent wind, rain, and impact requirements, and some manufacturers offer limited warranties on the highest wind speeds. The Federal Emergency Management Agency, or FEMA, recommends metal roofs for areas prone to high winds.
Standing seam metal roofs can protect against the penetration and spread of external fires. Not being manufactured from wood, this roofing type is not an optimal environment for mold and mildew. This goes a long way toward protecting the health and well-being of building occupants.
Many commercial property owners must balance form and function when selecting roof materials. Standing seam metal roofs are available in many colors and architectural styles, boosting the curb appeal of an otherwise nondescript structure.
Standing seam metal roofing might be perfect for those looking to highlight environmental sustainability. An energy-efficient design enables them to keep electricity usage low, saving you on heating and cooling costs. A fully recyclable product, they don’t have to end up in landfills at the end of their service life.
