What is Standing Seam?

Standing seam roofing is a distinctive type of metal roofing known by its raised interlocking seams that connect adjacent panels. This design not only gives it a sleek, modern look but also provides exceptional durability and weather resistance.

The panels, typically made from materials like aluminum, steel, or copper, run vertically from the roof’s ridge down to the eaves, minimizing water penetration and directing rainwater efficiently off the roof.

The raised seams are secured by concealed fasteners, which enhances the roof’s aesthetic appeal and protects against leaks, making standing seam roofing the best low- maintenance choice for both residential and commercial buildings.

Durable Material

In Texas, One of the best advantages of metal over shingle roofs is its superior durability and resistance to hail. Made from 24 gauge metal panels, it can withstand the impact of hailstones much better than traditional asphalt shingles, which often require repairs or replacement after severe hailstorms. This enhanced durability can translate into savings on insurance premiums, as many insurers offer reduced rates for homes with roofing materials that are less susceptible to damage.

Energy Savings

Standing seam roofs are known for their excellent energy efficiency. The metal panels reflect solar radiant heat, rather than absorbing it, which helps keep buildings cooler during the Texas summers. This reflective property can significantly reduce cooling costs, making standing seam roofing an economically attractive option over the long term, not just for its potential to lower immediate repair and insurance costs, but also for its ongoing energy savings.

Replacement Process

Re-roofing a home with a standing seam metal roof involves a systematic process to ensure longevity and performance. The first step is removing the old roofing material and inspecting the underlying deck for any damage, such as rot or structural weakness that need immediate attention. Next, a layer of insulation or a high- quality underlayment is installed to provide a moisture barrier and enhance thermal performance. The metal panels are then carefully measured and cut to fit the roof’s dimensions. These panels are usually long, running from the roof’s ridge down to the eaves, which minimizes seams and potential leak points. The panels are attached using a concealed fastener system, which not only secures them to the roof deck but also allows for thermal movement without damaging the panel.

Finally, all edges, seams, and transitions are sealed with specialized trim pieces, ensuring the roof’s integrity against the elements. This methodical installation process ensures the roof’s durability and effectiveness in protecting the home. Standing seam roofing requires installation by a qualified contractor, such as Comanche Roofing, because the precision and expertise involved in handling and securing the panels are crucial for ensuring the roof’s integrity and performance. Proper installation affects everything from the roof’s durability to its ability to prevent leaks. Additionally, opting for lower-priced, poor-quality roofing services often leads to subpar materials and workmanship, which can result in costly repairs and shorter roof lifespan. Investing in a reputable contractor like Comanche Roofing ensures that the roofing is done right the first time, providing value through long-lasting durability and reduced maintenance costs.
