Standing seam metal is one of the most sought-after materials used in both residential and commercial roofing, thanks to its minimal maintenance requirements and long-term durability. Read on as D&M Roofing, one of the leading roofers in the local area, shines a spotlight on this type of metal roofing.
What’s in a Name?The name “standing seam” refers to the raised seams of the metal panels. The seams are a weak point of any roof and are where moisture can find its way within the roofing layers. By raising these parts above the level of the metal panel, the metal roof can effectively shed rainwater without you worrying about water intrusion that leads to leaks.
A Look at the Roof’s FeaturesA standing seam metal roof comprises panels that run between 12 to 19 inches wide. Every panel can either come pre-formed from an off-site factory or as a roll of metal and then formed on-site using mobile machines that shape the material into rigid panels. It can be made from a variety of metal materials like aluminum, Galvalume-coated steel, copper and zinc.
A Look at the AdvantagesStanding seam metal roofs stand out among the best choices for both residential and commercial roofing because of their exceptional advantages. For one, they provide a continuous, uninterrupted appearance from one end to the other because the fasteners used to secure the seams of each metal panel are hidden from view.
Also, you can find standing seam metal in a wide variety of colors that will complement the exterior of your property. It can even be customized to fit the requirements of either the home or business, crafting the panels based on the property’s dimension and roof pitch.
Standing seam metal roofs are also one of the most eco-friendly materials used in the roofing industry. Regardless if it is made of steel, aluminum, copper or zinc, the roof is made of recycled content, varying from 35%-95%. This means that it won’t end up in a landfill after the end of its life span.
