Standing seam metal roofing has traditionally been used for commercial and agriculture buildings. Lately, it’s become more common as an option for homes. Standing seam metal roofing is a concealed fastener metal panel system that features vertical legs and a broad, flat area between the two legs. It also has raised seams or vertical legs that rise above the level of the panel’s flat area. Here are some of the benefits of having a standing seam metal roof for your home.
Cold Weather Resistant
Although Oklahoma doesn’t get a lot of cold weather during the year, when the ice does come around, it won’t build up. It slides off because of the smooth surface of the roof. Standing metal roofs are also pretty resistant to the wind, suitable for tornado season or those winter storms that come around like the most recent one.
Customers who are looking for more eco-friendly adjustments for their homes should strongly consider standing seam roofs. Not only are they made up of anywhere from 25 – 95% recycled material, but they are usually 100% recyclable at the end of their lifetime.
Convenience and Durability
Standing seam panels are a lot lighter than asphalt shingles. Their lightweight is good for the workers and your home. They also won’t crack, warp, or rot, which makes them highly durable—one of the most durable roofs that exist. Standing seam roofing lasts anywhere from 40 – 70 years.
Most people are extremely busy and don’t have a lot of time for roof upkeep. A standing seam roof is perfect for people who do not have time for roofing upkeep. They are one of the most low-maintenance forms of roofing because they have a coating of zinc-aluminum alloy, which allows them to resist corrosion for a very long time.
Standing seam roofs are not usually double-pinned, allowing the panels to expand and contract easier than other roof types. The roof can adjust to the weather, whether it’s hot or cold. This is especially true if your roof uses sliders or expansion clips.
As you can probably tell, standing seam metal roofs have a ton of benefits. They are energy-efficient, have long lifetimes, and are easy to manage. It’s safe to say you should add a standing seam metal roof to your list of options if you’re looking to build a home or replace your current roof.
