Standing Seam Metal Roofing

What is Standing Seam?

In the nutshell, standing seam is a side by side formation of vertically standing / laying metal panels that are secured in place by concealed fasteners. The panels are joined together at the sides, with the connecting / overlapping panel lock forming a seam as a connecting point between the panels.

Common uses

Standing seam is a frequently used commercial / industrial roofing product that can be seen everywhere. For instance, you are probably familiar with Governmental buildings that are commonly covered by in copper standing seam, which usually looks green, as the copper ages. If you take a walk through downtown Providence, RI you will know what I am talking about. Aside from the wealthy government buildings, standing seam metal roofs can be seen on a multitude of commercial buildings such as banks, restaurants such as IHOP that frequently have blue colored standing seam metal roofs, various shopping malls, and Industrial buildings such as power plants. Truly we see standing seam metal roofs all around us. Even the gas stations such as Hess are starting to adapt standing seam metal roofs as part of their corporate visual appeal, and recognition symbol.

Standing Seam in residential roofing

Homeowners striving to attain the modern look for their homes demand standing seam metal roofs. Many northern regions of New Hampshire are filled with thousands of homes protected by standing seam metal roofs. These new modern day styled roofs not only help to bring that modern fresh look to peoples’ residencies, but also offer some very important benefits such as long lasting protection, and peace of mind. One of the key benefits of standing seam metal roofs is the ease with each they shed the snow and ice, keeping your roof light, preventing ice-dams, and helping with ventilation of the roof.

Different types of standing seam

There are a few different types of standing seam metal roofing systems. The most common is the field locked standing seam that uses special locking tool to adjoin the panels in the field. Another type is a snap lock standing seam that locks the panels together when one side is adjoined with the one next to it. And finally there is also standing seam shingle based panels, that have the look of standing seam, but in reality they are the vertical shingle panels. Standing seam can be rolled out in the field, it can be prefabricated and shipped to the plant, or it can be custom bent at a sheet metal fabrication site.

What metal is used for the construction of standing seam panels

Standing seam panels can be made out of painted galvanized steel / G 90 Steel, Painted Aluminum, or Copper.

What is the minimum slope for the standing seam metal roof?

Unlike conventional roofing systems, standing seam can be installed on a very low slope roof, in fact, our most popular Dutch Seam – standing seam metal roofing system by Atas manufacturing can be installed on roofing slope as low as 2:12. DUTCH SEAM is a structural panel and can be fastened directly to purlins or solid substrate such as wooden or plywood roof deck

What type of standing seam metal roof can you install for my home?
