Asphalt shingles used to be the most popular roofing material back in the day. As roofing technology improved, there were more durable and long-lasting options available. Standing seam metal roofs are one of these. This type of metal roofing has been gaining popularity because of its many advantages.
What Is A Standing Seam Metal Roof?
This type of metal roofing raises seams above the roof level. The panels run from the roof’s ridge to the eaves. Between the panels are seams that are joined by mechanical fasteners. The roof’s raised seams are particularly beneficial as they deflect water from the roof.
Elements For Standing Seam Metal Roofs
Standing seam roofs use seam fasteners that range from 0.5 to 1.5 inches in height. The seam fasteners are concealed from the roof surface so that the ridge can run smoothly from top to bottom.
Metal roofing is primarily made up of sheet-like panels. They can be either prefabricated–panels assembled under factory conditions–or directly formed on the construction site.
Metal roofs are a flat roof system that is widely used. They are made primarily from aluminum and steel. The panels are typically 12 to 19 inches in width.
The Advantages Of Standing Seam Metal Roofs
High seams Because seams can be a potential entry point for moisture, it is smart to raise them above the roof panel’s level.
Less seams: There are no horizontal seams along the metal panels in the standing seam system.
The sun’s radiant heat can be reflected by metal roofs. Most roofing systems also include insulation. A roof that is more energy efficient means a home with controlled temperatures.
Metal surfaces tend to shed rain faster and more easily than other surfaces.
