Benefits of a Standing Seam Metal Roof

Standing seam metal roofing is strong. Crafted usually from steel or aluminum, the metal sheeting can provide a higher level of endurance than other roofing materials such as asphalt, wood, or clay tile. Most types of metal roofing, standing seam included, offer extraordinary impact resistance. This type of roofing stands up to falling branches and hail quite well.

Energy efficiency and being environmentally friendly are further benefits of installing a standing seam metal roof. Metal roofing is often manufactured from recycled and recyclable materials. Your homes carbon footprint can be reduced when choosing standing seam over other roofing types. The solar reflectance of the metal roofing keeps temperatures inside the building comfortable, therefore making heating and cooling costs more affordable.

The cost of a new standing seam roof can be more expensive than asphalt shingles, wood shakes, or tiles, but the investment is well worth considering. Also metal roofing lasts longer than other roofing types. The lightweight nature of standing seams also puts less pressure on your roof during inclement weather.

Part of the price difference is due to the complicated nature of installation. Standing seam metal roofing is often improperly installed on top of asphalt in colder areas of the country. Precipitation and contraction of the under-roof can cause unattractive rusting of the metal roof. Hire a reputable roofing contractor to either rip out the old roofing materials, or take the correct steps before installing a new standing seam roofing system.
