A standing seam metal roof is a premium roofing system. The standing seam metal roof will initially cost more than as asphalt shingle roofing system. However, an asphalt shingle roof will normally require two to three replacements throughout its lifetime. Metal roofs do not need replacement.
There are several types of standing seam roofs. There are double-lock, snap-loc and exposed fasteners. In our opinion the double lock standing seam metal roof is the best compared to the other types. A double lock standing seam metal roof has concealed fasteners, and individual panels are mechanically seamed together. The concealed fasteners provide maintenance free roofs while the mechanical seams insurance that the roof is water tight.
The metal that is used to manufacture these types of roofs comes in three different gauges. There are 24, 26, and 29. 24 is the thickest gauge. We only use 24 gauge materials unless otherwise specified.
