A Standing Seam roof is one of the most sought-after metal roof types around. Not only is it durable and maintenance-free, but its absence of exposed fasteners makes it visually appealing to the eye. Standing Seam metal roofs create a sense of vertical minimalist perfection. By the use of long metal panels that run seamlessly, metal roofs come with some great benefits. Here’s why a Standing Seam roof is a good choice for your home and why you should find the right metal roof installers.
What Makes A Standing Seam Roof Unique?
A Standing Seam roof follows a different approach when it comes to the installation technique. Traditional metal roofs are installed by the use of large ridges that are locked in place by the use of nails. Caulk is then used to seal the nailed seams. Standing Seam roofs, on the other hand, make use of vertical roof panels in the place of ridges that have interlocking sections which fasten together. There are three main styles to choose from:
In this style, each panel contains clips and fasteners which give it a consistent appearance. Mechanically seamed metal roofs are efficient for low-sloping roofs and work for both steel and aluminum applications by the use of hand crimpers.
Nail-hemmed panels have a raised seam which interlock on the edges. The edges have a hidden channel along the length on each side which keep in with their neat appearance.
These are the easiest to install. Snap-lock systems are used to secure the roof deck and hold the panels in place effectively. Snap-lock systems allow for thermal panel movement and work well in South Florida for our hot summers.
At Aabco Roofing, our metal roof installers will be able to offer you the style that will best suit your home and your budget.
The Pros Of Standing Seam Roofing
Not only do they look amazing, but they are also incredibly durable with a life span of over double that of shingle roofs. A Standing Seam roofing requires no maintenance and can withstand winds of up to 140 miles per hour! This is good news for the notorious South Florida hurricane season.
Fire-resistant and heat resistant, Standing Seam roofs reflect much of the sun’s rays and can help you reduce cooling costs by up to 30%. When installing a metal roof, you have the choice of multiple finishes and color options. From gloss or matte finishes to grays, greens or blues, and everything in between, this is where metal roofs get exciting and individual.
A Solid Investment
It’s important to keep in mind that quality metal roofing comes at a premium price. Other roofing options such as shingles might end up costing you less but keep the long term in mind. You should see a metal roof as a long-term investment. Not only does it require no maintenance for years to come, but it also adds an upmarket look at feel to your property.
