Standing Seam Metal Roofs

Standing Seam Metal Roof Specialists Serving Northern Colorado

Standing seam metal roofing is made from interlocking panels. This interlocking system makes it the strongest, most reliable roofing system on the market today. It is completely waterproof and comes in a variety of colors so you can customize it however you want.

Like other metal roofing services Advanced Roofing Technologies offers, standing seam helps regulate the temperature in your home because it reflects the sun and can save you money on your heating and cooling bills. You may also enjoy better insurance rates because of the reliability of your new roof.

What is Standing Seam Metal Roofing?

Standing seam metal roofing is exactly what it sounds like. Because of the interlocking panels, the seams stand up higher than the roof itself. It’s an interesting aesthetic feature that makes standing seam metal roofs more visually appealing than some other types of metal roofs.

Design-like customizations would interfere with the stability of the seams, but this type of roofing is still highly customizable allowing you to choose from a wide range of colors, lengths, widths, thicknesses, and seam types.

Types of Standing Seam Metal Roofing

Standing seam metal roofing comes in a variety of seam types. Each one interlocks a little bit differently, and they all provide different types of protection. Depending on the environment, you can choose specific seam types to suit your needs.

Snap-Lock

Snap-lock roofing systems have special edges that snap together with a male leg and a female leg. It doesn’t require the standing seam metal roof contractor to hand or mechanically fasten because they are secured by a simple click in place. Since this requires less labor, it results in lower costs. Snap-lock roofing can be installed in any environment as long as it is installed according to manufacturer specifications.

Mechanical Lock

Mechanical lock roofing systems also have edges that line up together. Once lined up, they require the use of a mechanical seamer to bend and secure them in place. They come in single lock and double lock profiles for better performance and insulation in colder weather.

Batten Panel

Batten panel roofing systems have edges that line up together and are secured by a metal cap to create the seam. Depending on the type of cap, some are more secure than others. The more secure the cap, the better the roofing system will perform in inclement weather environments.

Advantages of Standing Seam Metal Roofing

The interlocking panels of a standing seam metal roof ensure that no fasteners are exposed to the elements where they can deteriorate over time. All metal roofing systems are durable, but the fasteners sometimes must be replaced when they wear out. With a standing seam metal roof, this doesn’t happen because there are no exposed fasteners.

A standing seam metal roof is also unique and different from other metal roofing systems in that the panels aren’t pinned down, so they can expand and contract with the weather, allowing for more freedom of movement and less breakage.

As with all metal roofing systems, standing seam metal roofing is also durable, customizable, long- lasting, eco-friendly, and energy efficient. These are all the things we’ve come to love about the increased installation of metal roofing systems.

Standing Seam Metal Roof Maintenance

Other metal roofing systems require the use of fasteners, which means that while they require little maintenance, you still have to check for loose or damaged fasteners and replace them. However, a standing seam metal roof doesn’t have fasteners that go through the metal, so you don’t need to perform this type of maintenance.

Upkeep is always essential, but a standing seam metal roof requires much less of it. Inspecting for low hanging branches, other metal, or debris and clearing it off is all you should have to do.

Standing Seam Metal Roof Cost

Unfortunately, standing seam metal roofing comes at a cost. It’s one of the most expensive types of metal roofing because of the prefabrication process. It requires specific rolling techniques to create the edges, and few contractors have expertise in standing seam metal roof installation.

The installation process is labor intensive, which also adds to the cost. However, when contracting with a reliable standing seam metal roofing company, you’ll reap the benefits of professional installation with a great warranty and a long-lasting, durable roof.

    Logan and the crew did a fantastic job on our roof project this fall. They replaced our entire roof and installed all new gutters and downspouts. They also pulled out about a thousand nails on our patio cover which were used by the last … More roofers that were too long. (Poking through the ceiling...)
    The entire process was efficient, the team was very professional and they cleaned up their work areas nicely when done. They repaired a few rotted boards prior to installing the new gutters as well as a bad spot on the patio. All in all they did a very professional job and I feel they went the extra mile to make sure everything was done correctly.
    I also want to note that the office staff was very pleasant and helpful. They sent us all documents on time and Logan offered to fill out the new upgraded shingle form for our insurance company. (This roof replacement was due to wear, not hail damage.)
    I would recommend Advanced Roofing Technologies to anyone and would use them again in the future!
