ClickLock is Certified ‘Premium’ under the Metal Construction Association Certified Roofing Panels program Not Sure Standing Seam Is The Look You Want?

And, once they find out that the cost of beautiful products like Rustic Shingle or Oxford Shingle and Country Manor Shake is actually often less than that of a quality standing seam, their excitement only grows.

5. Larry, The snap-on metal roofs cost somewhere between a screw-down and a hand-crimped true standing seam roof. Some types are, in fact, a compromise between the two, requiring exposed screws at the top and bottom of each pan with the rest secured with hidden clips or build-in nailing flanges. Some systems have pans that simply snap onto each other, while others use separate “battens” that snap over the joint between pans. Because the snap-on systems rely on standardized factory-made edge and end trim that don’t require forming on site, they are faster to install and can save on labor costs but might be problematic on complex roofs with lots of penetrations, such as skylights, dormers and chimneys. The quality and longevity of these roofs will depend on both the quality and gauge of the metal and its finish as well as the skill of the installer. I’ve seen beautiful screw-down and clip-on roofs and awful standing seam jobs. As for PV installation, the standing seam clamps that make PV panels a “snap” to install cleanly and securely won’t likely work on most snap-on roofs, since the seams are not flat and tight and the “battens” will compress and distort. Before choosing a roofing system, I would suggest conferring with your PV installer on the relative benefits and compatibility issues with each system. True standing seam is certainly the “cadillac” of metal roofing systems – IF it’s done well. Answered by Riversong Posted Nov 10, 2010 6:26 PM ET

When most homeowners begin thinking about a metal roof, all they can envision are the roofs they have seen on barns and commercial buildings. Those types of metal roofs typically have panels that run vertically up the roof. These types of metal panel roofs are called “Standing Seam” because their prominent visual feature is the raised interlocking seam which joins one panel to the next. Often called “commercial roofing,” or “agricultural panel roofing,” or even “barn roofing,” these products do provide the great protection and durability for which metal is known. Classic’s ClickLock Standing Seam provides the look of the products that you see everywhere on restaurants and farm outbuildings.

1. Larry, I’m unfamiliar with the term “snap-on,” but a Google search seems to reveal that the “snap-on” systems are what I call standing-seam metal roofs. These roof panels are usually formed and cut on site. Here in Vermont, the less expensive alternative to a standing-seam metal roof is a traditional through-fastened metal roof. Twenty years ago, we all ordered metal roofing panels (30″ or 36″ wide) in 8 ft., 10. ft., or 12 ft lengths; now any lumber yard will deliver panels to your exact measurement, down to the quarter inch. You can order panels 17′ 3 3/4″ long if you want, in a wide variety of colors. They are usually 36″ wide. If your roof configuration is simple, without a lot of valleys, hips, dormers, and penetrations, such roofs go up fast. Answered by Martin Holladay Posted Nov 10, 2010 3:42 PM ET
