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.

Durability and Longevity: Standing seam roofs are known for their exceptional durability and longevity. This roof will not crack, shrink, erode, or perforate. It offers superior protection against fire and strong wind. Standing seam is one of the most stable and durable roofs for hurricane grade winds and hail. Most manufacturers offer systems rated for up to 110mph wind uplift or higher. You can have a real peace of mind with a standing seam metal roof, as it will last well over 50 years, requiring virtually no maintenance, but if and only if it was installed properly.

Standing seam panels can either be pre-formed at a manufacturing facility or a sheet metal shop, or site-formed. Site-formed panels are formed from a roll of metal coil, which is fed through special roll-forming machine which crimps the metal into rigid panels. Forming standing seam panels right on the job site offers the advantage of speed, convenience, and makes it possible to form panels of considerable length that would otherwise be difficult to transport. In regards to panel length, it is important to be aware that longer standing seam metal panels require consideration during the design process to account for greater contraction and expansion.

Installation: Standing seam requires both specialized knowledge, and tools for a proper installation. This means that only select few contractors will actually be able to install a standing seam correctly. Thus, you will have to seek a company that specializes in the installation of standing seam roofs.

Impervious to Moisture: seams are a the weakest point in any roof, often becoming the potential entry point for leaks. In a standing seam roof, seams are raised above the level of the roofing panel, making it impervious to moisture. Also, standing seam roofs have fewer seams in total than most other types of roofs.

Another common type is a snap-lock standing seam, which locks the panels together when one side is adjoined or snapped-together with the one next to it. Lastly, there are standing seam shingle-based panels. These have the look of standing seam, but they are actually vertical metal shingle panels.

Sleek Looks:  Standing seam roofs are perfect for certain types of contemporary or country-style houses. Due to the smooth, straight lines, these roofs give your house an “industrial” feeling, yet with a modern flair. These are not the rippled tin roofs that you might remember from warehouses of the past.

Standing seam is a metal roofing system featuring vertical metal panels running from the ridge of the roof all the way down to the eaves. The upturned edge of a metal panel connecting it to the adjacent panel creates a distinctive vertical line known as a standing seam, which gives this system its characteristic, trendy, modern look.
