Whether it’s for residential or commercial properties, metal roofs are a great choice to serve as the first line of defense against the threat imposed by severe weather conditions.
These materials were made using metal pieces and panels as well as tiles, which give the materials the durability and resilience they need to last for several decades.
Metal Roofs are a great investment. Investing in metal roofing will help in lengthening your home’s lifespan and enhance its structural integrity. This has been proven to have one of the most time and cost-efficient installation processes. Keeping your home’s roofing system at its finest state is easy with metal roofs.
Types of Metal Roofs
A standing seam roof system, also classified as concealed fastener panels, utilizes a series of adjoining panels that are connected by raised seams (or vertical legs). Seam heights vary, but are typically 1 to 2 ½ inches tall and allow the panels to snap together without any exposed fasteners. In addition to providing a sleek, modern look, standing seam roofs allow panels to expand and contract with changing temperatures, helping them to last longer and cause less wear and tear on the roof deck. For residential applications, most standing seam panels snap together while others require mechanical seaming. Mechanical seamed panels provide greater strength and wind uplift capabilities.
The most economical form of metal roofing, exposed fastener roofing, consists of overlapping panels that are fastened directly to the roof deck or framing through the face of the metal. They are called “exposed” because the fastener head remains visible once installed. However, fastener heads are painted the same color as the roofing panels to help make them less apparent.
