What are the benefits of standing seamed roofs?
Today we are going to be looking at one such decision that can be made during the design process for our prefab metal buildings. And that is using a standing seam roof for your steel building or metal building.
Most people have probably never heard the term standing seam roof, but they have definitely seen these roofs in use before. They are aesthetically pleasing to look at, and offer a number of benefits for those in the market for prefab metal buildings.
Advantages of using a Standing Seam Roof…
Standing seam roofs are roofs that have panels that run vertically up the roof. The reason that they are called standing seam is because the metal panels of the roof are connected with interlocking seams. The seams are raised creating a visual aesthetic that is the most prominent feature of the roof.
Some of the main reasons that individuals are choosing to use standing seam roofs of their buildings are:
A standing seam roof is resilient
A metal standing seam roof is for the most part more resilient to the elements then wood, or other more traditional roofing options. This is especially true if you live in an area that experiences extreme weather conditions or extreme changes in weather.
A standing seam roof lasts for a long time
Considering the fact that metal is one of the most durable building materials in use today you can expect that your standing seam roof will last for a long time. On average we have found that these types of roof can last for up to 50 years.
A standing seam roof is great looking
Few things in life are both utilitarian and aesthetically pleasing, but standing seam roofs fit this bill. If you have ever seen them standing atop a warehouse or home, then you know exactly what we are talking about. The interlocking seams running down the roof are pleasing to the eye and the fact that you can easily paint them whatever color you’d like is also a plus.
A standing seam roof can conserve energy
Beyond that fact that a metal roof is inherently more energy efficient then shingled roofing or wood roofing options, they can also be painted which can further energy savings. On average a metal roof can save you 40% on air conditioning or heating throughout the year.
A standing seam roof does not have many seams
If you live in an area where there is a lot of precipitation then having less seams in your roof is what you are really looking for. Since a standing seam roof only has one seam running across the top of the roof, this means that your roof will be less prone to leaking.
