What is Metal Roofing?

Standing seam is the most popular type of metal commercial & industrial roofing. Standing Seam refers to a type of metal roof that has concealed fasteners with a broad flat area and two vertical legs. Standing seam is typically made from prefabricated aluminum or steel panels. It’s an aesthetically pleasing option that can last a lifetime. Standing seam is offered in a variety types, colors, and designs.

Main Types of Standing Seam:

  • Batten Panels – Feature a batten style seam clip and are a popular choice for walls. These panels should only be installed on a roof pitch that is greater than or equal to 3:12.
  • Nail/Fastener Flange Panels – This type of panel has less accessories (no clips) so they are the most economical type of panel. These panels should only be installed on a roof pitch that is greater than or equal to 3:12.
  • Snap Lock Panels – These panels have the same accessories as a mechanical lock panel, but they snap into place and do not have to be mechanically seamed. These panels should only be installed on a roof pitch that is greater than or equal to 3:12.
  • Mechanically Seamed Panels – this is the best option for low slope roofing. These panels feature seams that are mechanically crimped together. The panels can be bonded with a hand seamer or an electric robot that mechanically seams. The end result is a small water tight seam that can be used on pitches as low as 1/2:12.

Why Metal Roofing?

Metal roofing is cost-efficient, tremendously durable, resists damage from fire, and is very resilient to severe weather such as hail. Metal roofing may even reduce insurance premiums after being installed, simply because metal roofing is less susceptible to harm. Metal roofs are also ideal for commercial businesses because they are green. Metal is energy efficient, made from recyclable materials, is recyclable at the end of its service life, and can often be installed over an existing roof which keeps roofing material out of landfills. Another reason why metal roofing is a great option for your commercial roof is because they require minimal lifetime maintenance, saving money down the road. A quality metal roof can last 50-70 years.
