Out of all the metal roofing options available in the market today, standing seam is the type that is fast becoming a favorite—both among home and commercial building owners. The main characteristic of standing seam metal roofing is that it has its seams higher than the roofing itself. Seams are always a weak point in any kind of roofing, so raising the seams above water level is a key advantage.
Roofmasters Roofing and Sheet Metal Company, Inc., one of the area’s premier roofing contractors, presents their features here.
One great advantage of standing seam metal roofs is in the name itself: seams. They are a potential entry point for moisture. But with a standing seam system, they stand above the level of the roofing panel and water level. This advantage is not shared by any other type of roofing system.
The metal panels run continuously from the ridge to the eaves of the roof. Thus, the roof doesn’t have horizontal seams and in total has far fewer seams. When you have this, you are less likely to be victimized by attic leaks and the issues brought about by excessive moisture.
Durable and Long-Lasting
Metal is tough and durable, but it’s not impervious to all hazards. The sheet metal, for instance, can get punctured by heavy falling limbs or by a severe hailstorm. But with proper maintenance, you can expect your metal roof to last between 30 and 50 years. Roofmasters Roofing and Sheet Metal Company, Inc. provides gutters and metal roof maintenance.
The US Environmental Protection Agency considers all metal roofing a “cool roof”. It’s because you can paint metal roofing any color, even light colors that prevent solar heat gain. You cannot say the same for other types such as composition shingles, for instance. This makes standing seam metals the superior choice.
