Standing Seam Metal Roofs
Are you considering a standing seam metal roof for your building? It’s a great choice for both residential and commercial applications! A metal roof will last longer than asphalt shingles.
As a homeowner, you can expect a metal roof to last at least twice as long as alternatives. Not to mention, it may net you a reduction in your homeowner’s insurance rate!
Standing seam requires little or no maintenance. Unlike some roofing materials, mold or algae doesn’t grow on metal.
One advantage with standing seam when compared to a corrugated steel roof is that with standing seam, the fasteners are concealed under the roof, leaving a clean, crisp look. While this takes longer to install, it also lasts much longer.
Metal roofs can be easily integrated with solar panels, and can bring you energy savings. Metal roofing can save homeowners as much as twenty-five percent on heating and cooling costs.
There is definitely a right and a wrong way to install standing seam, and you can be sure MR Roofing does it right. We won’t get into all the details and technical terms, but unlike some roofing contractors, we do not compromise on the hemming of the trims and edges. We also install standing seam only on solid decking, not on spaced purlins, and we install rope under all the panels.
You’ll get a paint warranty with your standing seam roof, so you can be worry free for many years.
Corrugated roofing panels
A corrugated metal roof has many of the same advantages as a standing seam roof, but it’s less expensive.
Corrugated metal is used in many applications, including residential, agricultural, and commercial roofing projects.
We use durable 29-gauge metal panels that are available in a whole range of colors, allowing you to complement the color of your existing siding or shutters.
Metal roofing can save homeowners as much as twenty-five percent on heating and cooling costs. Another advantage is that solar panels can be integrated with metal roofs.
While putting a corrugated metal roof on top of shingles can save money upfront, heat can build up between the old shingles and the new metal roof, which can crack the paint at pressure points. This is why we always remove shingles first before installing a new metal roof.
Not to bore you with technical details, but one more note about the details: for agricultural projects we do not require solid decks. We do require solid decking on residential projects so we can install a vapor barrier.
