Standing seam metal is growing in popularity across the country as a viable replacement and new construction roofing solution not just for homes but also for commercial properties. It may be on the moderately costly side, but it is a worthwhile investment that pays for itself. Read on to learn more about this roofing material and why it is a great choice for your business.
Metal continues to be a popular material for construction because of its durability and toughness. It has inherent mechanical properties that enable it to withstand the harsh elements. While metal roofs aren’t too quick to show extensive damage throughout their life spans, they require regular inspection and maintenance to ensure their longevity.
Reliable Water Resistance
Unlike other roofing systems, standing seam metal roofs are designed to be taller than cascading rainwater. They have far fewer seams to allow the panels to run unhindered from the top to the bottom of the roof. More importantly, these seams are raised above the level of the roof panel to protect against water infiltration.
Standing seam metal roofs come in a wide range of colors that can match the other exterior components of any commercial property. Also, the panels can be customized to fit the building’s requirements for a roof covering. A reliable metal and single ply roof repair company can form the panels based on the roof pitch and dimensions of the property.
Improved Energy Efficiency
Any type of metal roof, including the standing seam type, is considered a “cool roof” by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). It has outstanding thermal properties to minimize solar heat gain that causes uncomfortable indoors. This becomes even more pronounced if the surface is painted a lighter color.
