Asphalt is the most popular and one of the cheapest roofing materials. However, metal roofs are growing more popular among homeowners and business owners due to their benefits.
Find out why you should choose a standing seam metal roof for your business from your local home exterior contractor, Goodrich Roofing.
Standing Seam Metal Roofs
A standing seam metal roof raises the seams above the level of the roof itself. Most houses with metal roofs have a standing seam variety.
This metal roofing type features continuous panels that run from the roof’s ridge down to the eaves. Seams between the panels are secured with fasteners, which are raised above the level of the metal roofing. It’s called ‘standing seam’ because the seam appears to be raised or standing. Since seams are a weak point of a roof, it will help to raise them above water level.
A standing seam metal roof has fewer seams due to interrupted metal panels that run from top to bottom of the roof. Your metal roof can last between 30 to 50 years or more if it’s properly maintained.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recognizes all metal roofs as a cool roof. This is because this material can be painted lighter to prevent solar heat gain while composition shingles are hard to paint.
Metal roofs are suitable for both residential and commercial establishments. Their smooth, straight lines give a building an industrial, modern feel. They are available in various colors to complement your home or business.
