What is a Standing Seam Roof?

For some homes, asphalt shingles aren’t satisfactory. Especially in large, commercial or industrial settings, a different, more durable type of roofing material is needed. For projects like these, standing seam metal roofs are ideal. Unlike asphalt shingles, metal roofs don’t slough and degrade over time, and while they can be a bit more costly upfront, their prices remain market steady – the cost of asphalt shingles can vary because of their petroleum composition.

What is a standing seam roof? From ridge to eaves, metal panels extend, and between each one is a seam. Elevated fasteners are used to connect the seam and panels, giving the roof the appearance of having standing ridges… or standing seams.

The panels used in standing seam roofs can vary in width and size, and depending on the scope of your project, they can be pre-fabricated or cut to your specifications onsite.
