Standing Seam Metal Roof Types

For new metal roofing, you can choose from various types of standing seam metal for your residential and commercial roofing project. Metal is a flexible material used in construction and its features make it a perfect choice for roofing work. Standing seam metal roofs come in various types that depend on how they attach, how they engage with each other, and the panel shape.

Attachment Methods

Standing seam metal roofs for homes can be attached in different ways to the roofing deck, rafters, or purlins.  The two main types of attachment are:

  • Fastening Flange: The panels are directly attached to the roof deck by inserting a fastener through a slotted flange.
  • Clipped: The panels are attached with clipped systems to the substructure with a heavy gauge steel clip specifically designed for a secure attachment.

Engagement Methods

The two main methods that standing seam metal panels are engaged are:

  • Snapped: Male or female legs are snapped in place to the panel systems. The vertical legs are placed over each other and then pressure is applied to push the upper panel down onto the lower panel until the legs are engaged.
  • Mechanically seamed: The panels are engaged using a motorized seaming machine which folds two or more of the panel legs together.

Concealed Fasteners

When we install fasteners for standing seam metal roof, they are hidden from view. This is one of the main benefits of this type of metal roof which makes them more durable. When fasteners are hidden, they are not exposed to UV, moisture, wind, and other elements that can cause them to wear over time. Hidden fasteners make your roof look cleaner.

In a similar light, the use of fasteners makes this metal roof more protected because the absence of holes makes the roof protected from water leaks, hot air leaks, and cold air leaks. This can impact the energy efficiency of your home.

Expansion/Contraction Ability

No matter the location of your home in New Orleans, a standing seam metal roof allows for the expansion and contraction needed for thermal movement. Most standing seam metal roofs are not double pinned making them contract and expand better.  We also use slier and expansion clips when we install this type of metal roofing which can make the metal roof move freely.

Onsite Panel Production

We install customize standing seam metal roofs with panels that can be bent onsite. We curve panels onsite according to your requirements and to match the overall design of your home. This will reduce transportation costs and ensure that the panels will perfectly fit in your roofing system.

Aesthetics

The painting system used to make standing seam metal roofs last longer is the PVDF paint system, which is widely available for use on metal roofing systems. The PVDF paint system makes color fade at a less rapid rate.

Quality and Dependability

The superior quality of standing seam metal roofs includes features that make them fire-resistant, pest-resistant, and water-resistant. This means you don’t have to worry about replacing your roof in a few years. They are the highest quality metal roofing panel that we install for homes and commercial buildings in New Orleans.

Metal standing seam roofs deflect sunlight, which helps to keep your home cooler in the summer. The reflective properties of metal roofs can save up to 25 percent of air-conditioning costs in the summer months. During cold weather, these roofs act as insulators and help to contain the heat inside your home for greater energy efficiency. And thus, can lead to lower energy bills.
