The best part about standing seam metal roofing is the variety of choices and options available to home and business owners. These choices go far beyond just the color of the panel to include the length, width, shape, thickness and profile you desire to complement your structure. Here are some of the more popular types:
Snap lock: Comprised of panels that have been roll-formed with specifically shaped edges that snap together, with no need for hand or mechanical seaming during installation.
Mechanical seam: These are also roll-formed with edges that line up with one other. Once the two panels have been engaged, a hand or mechanical seamer bends the edges and locks the panels together.
Batten panel: Involves two legs of the panels being roll-formed and then butted up next to one another covered by a metal cap to create a seam. This type snaps on or mechanically seams into place.
Nail/fastener flange: Similar to a snap-lock panel system, but is directly fastened to the deck through the male leg of the metal panel rather than through the use of a clip.
Metal is a good choice for roofs because this durable material can withstand the most extreme weather conditions, from hail and wind to snow and ice. It is also good at retaining its original look for many years to come. Surprisingly, metal roofs are lightweight compared with asphalt shingles and other materials. Did you know metal shingles can last at least 50 years and usually much longer?
