7 Reasons to Invest in Standing Seam Roofing

7 Reasons to Invest in Standing Seam Roofing

Looking at options for new roof paneling can be very stressful, there are so many roof types and styles to choose from! Even if you have chosen getting a metal roof, you still must decide between a standing seam metal roof and a corrugated metal roof, and both of which have many sub-options to choose from. 

One of the most popular metal roofing panels is a standing seam metal roofing system, and for good reason. It is one of the most effective and efficient roofing systems there is. We wanted to provide a list of benefits and explain the reasoning behind them. 

  1. Durability and Weather-tight: Standing seam panels are a concealed fastener roofing panel. This is the most effective weather-tight roofing system. Standing seam roofs are known to last 40-70 years, so you’ll never have to buy another roof!
  2. Curb Appeal: Obviously, everybody has their own opinion on looks. Standing seam has a modern look with straight lines, and due to the efficient fastener system, no screw heads are visible. Do with that information as you will!
  3. Energy-Efficient: All metal roofs have energy efficiency and will save you money. Generally, you will save 10-15% on cooling costs (AC). 
  4. Increase Home Value: If placing your house on the market, you repossess about 90% of the total roofing cost through home value. Also, the whole house can be worth up to 6% more when covered by standing seam metal roofing versus asphalt shingles. 
  5. Variety of Aesthetic Color Choices: Standing seam metal roofing has access to the PVDF paint system. When buying a roof that can last a lifetime, you need a paint that can do the same. This paint fades at a slow rate and has endless options to choose from. 
  6. Low Maintenance: Because the fasteners are concealed and aren’t exposed to the weather, standing seam panels require much less maintenance than any other roof. 
  7. Suitable for Every Slope:  This system can be installed on a roof with a minimum pitch of 0.5” in 12”.
