The Durability of Standing Seam Metal Roofing

standing seam

The roof is the one part of the house that takes the most damage when protecting us from the elements. It has to cope with extreme conditions ranging from wintry ice to the summer sun. Many substances simply can not withstand this diverse range of abuse. Meaning it is important to select strong roofing made from a durable and resistant material that will withstand anything. Advances in technology have seen various new forms of roofing as well as advances in old techniques. So the options available when selecting good roofing are wide, and standing seam metal roofing is one of them.

Maintenance of your roof.

For all of the work that a roof does, you would expect that it would be a part of the housing and home maintenance that people took very seriously. Many people do not maintain their roof or even have it checked on a regular basis but prevention is a much better option than cure. By having regular checks on your roof you can prevent costly repairs when things go wrong.

Traditional roofing material compared to standing seam metal roofing.

Asphalt and modified bitumen are the most common choices when it comes to selecting a material for your roof. However, in more recent years standing seam has increased in popularity as it has decreased in cost, and its durability, protection, and flexibility have increased. Standing seam metal roofing has much to offer; it is fire-resistant, weather-resistant, can easily fit your roof, and has become even easier to install. In fact, standing seam metal roofing meets the very highest of standards when it comes to fire resistance and wind and hail resistance.

The life of your standing seam.

Standing seam metal roofing is very unlikely to rot, mold, split or crack. For this reason, a standing seam metal roofing system means you can enjoy long life from your roof with comparably low maintenance costs. It is also usually fully recyclable itself so it is a sustainable choice. The options are virtually limitless if you decide on the standing seam. Copper, aluminum, galvanized or stainless steel, and a range of other metals are commonly applied. Each has its own look, feel, and uses.

Standing seam metal roofing offers a life of 50 years or more making it much longer-lasting than other traditional methods employed in many houses. It usually has 50% recycled material and 100% of your standing seam metal roofing will be recycled in the event that it does eventually need replacing. Conversely, asphalt requires a huge amount of oil every year to create shingles that last an average of 15 years. Standing seam metal roofing also means you will use less energy. Conserving yet more resources and lowering your summer energy bills. Standing seam metal roofing reflects approximately 70% of the sun’s rays. Meaning you will spend a lot less keeping your air conditioning unit running.
