What is Standing Seam Roofing?
Standing seam is a special type of sheet metal roofing. Standard sheet metal roofing uses external fasteners to affix one sheet of roofing to another. These fasteners are less durable than the surrounding sheet metal, and can contribute to leaking without proper maintenance. Standing seam, on the other hand, uses a different technique and is therefore not subject to the same kind of leaking and requires less maintenance. “Seam” refers to the raised vertical seam where the sheet metal is fastened together. The fasteners are inside the raised seam, protecting them from the elements. This makes it a more durable option than standard sheet metal roofing.
Durable, Visually Pleasing, Energy Efficient
Standing seam is becoming a much more common choice for commercial and industrial building since its development in the mid-1900s. In addition to its highly durable nature, standing seam has a contemporary aesthetic that is a common choice for architects and designers. Because it reflects sunlight away from the building, it is also highly energy efficient and helps keep the building cooler. Contact us for an estimate on your standing seam roofing installation today.
