Metal roofing is a solid choice when it comes to protecting your home, your family, and your cherished possessions. No roof is completely weatherproof, however, with new technology and innovations in metal roofing, this option is an excellent option to consider.

Through our years of experience, we stand behind one type of metal roofing more than any other. The standing seam roofing system has proven beneficial for a variety of reasons! Continue reading to learn all about standing seam roofing.
Standing seam metal roofing is a type of metal roofing where the fasteners are concealed. Many times this system is also referred to as “barn roofing”, “commercial roofing”, or “agricultural panel roofing.” The panels interlock using a clamp system instead of screws to hold it all in place. The interlocking system has tall 1 ¾” seams for added distinction. This gives the roof a polished, seamless look that many prefer over the other types of metal roofing systems. There are many other benefits to this type of roofing system.
This type of metal roofing does a better job of protecting the home against moisture. Considering no screws are holding the panels in place, there is little chance of failure or breaking down of the material. Therefore, leaking is minimal.
Standing seam metal panels offer protection against fire with non-combustible materials.
The expansion and contraction of the metal are important on a roof. This type of metal roofing is attached to the roof deck with special clips which allow for movement due to temperature changes.
Hail can do some terrible damage to a roof. Standing seam metal roofing is class 4, meaning they are the highest level of impact resistance for roofing materials. According to the explanation, a 2-inch piece of hail won’t damage the strength of standing seam metal roofing.
Standing seam metal roofing has a long life, of nearly 30 years when properly installed and the attic of the home is adequately ventilated. Additionally, with regular inspections, this roofing material can even last up to 50 years.
Minimal maintenance is a key component of this type of roof. Cleaning is not even necessary, but wise in order to catch any potential problems. Make sure to keep an eye out for any areas that have become scratched, as this can lead to rust from moisture and dew buildup.
When compared to asphalt shingles, standing seam metal roofing has a more visually appealing look. A buyer will glance at the roof and know they won’t have to worry about changing the material any time soon.
The options for fade-resistant colors range from white to tan, to red to black. Homeowners with a variety of preferences can find a color to suit their home and personality.
Ice and snow will just slide right off the surface as there is nothing to keep it sitting in place. This can aid in cleaning the surface while falling off.
This metal roofing is quality-made, up to 99% recycled aluminum, the majority of which is post-consumer. Likewise, if a metal roof has neared the end of its life, and must be removed, then that metal can be recycled into other useful items.
