Standing Seam Metal Roofs

A popular choice for its durability and longevity, a standing seam metal roof takes a different installation approach than a traditional metal roofing method. Roofing contractors in South Jersey and elsewhere install traditional metal roofing by huge ridges, locking the seams of each roofing panel ridge in place with nails and sealing these seams with caulk.  

Standing seam metal roofs are installed in a different manner. Instead of ridges, standing seam metal roofs use vertical metal roofing panels. These panels have similar measurements and interlocking spots that allow them to fasten together to create an airtight seal.

Standing Seam metal roofing panels are designed to be the best at handling snow and ice loads. The standing seam technology locks the fasteners beneath a seamless standing rib, protecting them from the harsh weather. This non-exposed fastener system helps this roof become virtually maintenance free with no need to tighten screws back down in the future.

Easily one of the most significant benefits of standing seam metal roofing is that no fasteners are visible on the surface, which means they aren’t exposed to sunlight, moisture, wind, and other elements that can cause a fastener to wear or fail over time.

Standing seam systems also do not put holes in the panels that are protecting your structure, adding to their weather-tightness. Many people also do not like the look of fastener heads, which is why using a standing seam system to hide them is common. Many choose standing seam roofing because they want a sleek, clean, consistent, and more modern look.
