Standing Seam Metal Roofing Types
When it comes to standing seam metal roofing configurations, you have several options. These roofing options have unique interlocking mechanisms and protective features you can’t find with other materials.
A snap-lock roofing system has panels with hidden fasteners and clips. During the installation of a snap-lock system, the installer will secure the clips to the roof deck, which holds the panels in place. This type of roofing works best for roof pitches ranging from 3:12 to 2:12, and installing it requires minimal labor.
Mechanical lock panels feature clips and concealed fasteners. Installing them involves mechanically seaming one panel to the next after positioning them on a roof.
These panels are suited to low sloping roofs with pitches of 0.25:12 or higher. This type of roofing system offers excellent insulation, especially in colder climates.
A batten panel roofing system consists of lined up panels with metal caps over the seams to secure the panels together. During the installation of a batten system, the installer has to fix spacer clips to the substrate and lock the curved or tapered panels into place.
You also need a solid substrate to ensure a secure installation. This type of roof cannot function as a raised or standalone system.
Standing Seam Metal Roofing Advantages
Metal roofs act as mirrors that reflect most of the sun’s heat, keeping your house cool on warm days. Because your roof doesn’t absorb the sun’s heat, it can result in energy savings of up to 50%. With our professional insulation installation services, your metal roof will also keep your house warm during the cold winter months.
When it comes to standing seam metal roofing, you have several options available in terms of color, seam type, and panel widths, lengths, and thicknesses. The versatility of these roofing systems allows you to match your new roof to its surroundings without interfering with your roof seams’ stability.
Standing seam metal roofing is highly durable and able to withstand the harsh elements. Because these roofing systems feature concealed fastener systems, they are also less susceptible to deterioration. These roof types also offer optimal longevity with a functional lifespan that can last up to 100 years.
