Standing Seam Metal Overview

Standing seam metal roofs are some of the most durable, stunning, and versatile roofs on the market. Available in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and thicknesses, these roofs have become very popular choices for both residential and commercial properties. There are three types of standing seam metal roof panels:

  • Mechanical Lock – Weathertight panels with mechanically bent and seamed edges. Ideal for areas with more extreme weather conditions.

  • Snap-Lock – Low maintenance panels that are easy to install. These panels are best suited for drier climates and pitched roofs.

  • Batten Panel – These specialized panels offer high levels of wind resistance and are a great option for uncommon roof designs.

Featuring a striking modern appearance, standing seam metal roofs can be applied to any structure, no matter how complex the design. They also provide unparalleled protection from the elements, featuring concealed fasteners that are not exposed to the destructive force of the wind, rain, UV, and other elements. On top of that, standing seam roofs can be installed over existing roof systems!

There are many major benefits that come with having a metal roof:

  • Improved resistance to elements and leaks
  • Minimal maintenance requirements
  • High durability (lasts up to 50 years)
  • Easy mounting options for solar panels
  • Increased energy efficiency
  • Environmentally friendly
