Benefits Standing Seam Roofing

A metal standing seam roof, or seamed metal roof, has a definable seam that extends vertically from the panel's flat surface. This seam helps provide additional rigidity and support, making a standing seam metal roof a favorite of both residential and commercial applications.

One of the biggest benefits of standing seam roofing is the hidden fastener system it uses. Since a hidden fastener system is used the majority of the time, a standing seam roof rarely sees issues related to fasteners. Another big benefit of a standing seam roof is its ability to be engineered with solar and snow retention options. Due to standing seam roof panel’s high-performing characteristics, they’re often chosen for those wanting to install solar or snow retention accessories on their metal roofs.

Hidden vs Exposed Fasteners

Most standing seam metal roofing options come with hidden or concealed fasteners, referring to the clips, screws or nails being hidden from view on the installed standing seam roof. A key benefit of hidden fasteners versus exposed fasteners is the hidden fastener is not puncturing the standing seam metal panel itself, nor is it exposed to weather. This usually means your standing seam metal roof has a higher level of protection from the elements, it will require less maintenance and it will provide a more attractive and appealing look for your standing seam roof.

The Mechanically Locking Series of standing seam roofs is among one of our most structural and toughest panels. While the 2" Mechanical Lock Roofing Panel is a wonderful choice for bold standing seam metal roofing designs, the 1" Mechanical Lock Panel provides an equally appealing option for residential metal standing seam roofs.

The Tru Snap Series offers an alternative to the mechanically seamed panel, and is often chosen for both residential and commercial standing seam roofing applications alike.
