A standing seam roof is a metal roofing system, where continuous interlocking panels run from the ridge of the roof all the way down to the eaves. The upturned edge of one metal panel that connects it to adjacent panels creates distinctive vertical lines and a trendy, modern look. Most of residential standing seam metal roofing systems are designed as watershed systems, requiring a minimum roof slope of 3:12 (14 degrees) or greater.
Residential standing seam panels are generally 12 to 19 inches wide. They are typically made out of painted galvanized steel/G-90 Steel, galvalume steel (offers greater protection from corrosion than galvanized steel), or painted aluminum. It is also possible to order panels made out of copper, or zinc, but these premium metals are more expensive, and are not a typical material choice for most homeowners.
Standing seam metal roofs boast a number of advantages that make them the fastest growing metal roofing choice among homeowners.

Sleek lines of the roof, give the house a very cool contemporary feel and multiple combinations of panel widths, seam profiles, and rib heights offer design flexibility. The many sizes and styles of standing seam metal roofs allow for an array of beautiful visual effects.
Durability and Longevity: Standing seam metal roofs are famous for their exceptional durability and longevity. This roof will not crack, shrink, erode, or perforate. It offers superior protection against fire and strong wind. A standing seam metal roof is the most stable form of roofing during hurricanes. Most metal roofing manufacturers provide systems rated for up to 110 mph wind uplift. You will have real peace of mind with a standing seam metal roof, as it will last over 50 years, requiring virtually no maintenance.
Impervious to Moisture: seams are a the weakest point in any roof, often becoming the potential entry point for leaks. In a standing seam metal roof, seams are raised above the level of the roofing panel, making their impervious to moisture. Also, standing seam metal roofs have less seams in total than other types of roofs.
Sheds Snow and Ice: A standing seam metal roof is specifically designed to easily shed snow and ice. This keeps the roof light, improves ventilation and prevents ice-dams from forming. This makes a standing seam roof perfect in regions with prolonged winters and heavy snow snow storms.
