Benefits: Standing Seam Metal Roof

Standing seam metal roofing is increasingly popular these days. Many roofing contractors recommend installing standing seam metal for both residential and commercial buildings.

If you prioritize durability and longevity, standing seam roofing is your best choice. Let's find out why Tampa residents and business owners are now leaning towards standing seam metal roofing.

What is a Standing Seam Metal Roof?

In the past, standing seam metal roofs were designed specifically for commercial and agricultural buildings. Today, Drexel Metals along with other metal roofing manufacturers have made huge upgrades, making standing seam metal roofs more versatile and ideal for residential homes, as well.

A standing seam roof is one of the most well-designed metal roofs. It is made up of metal panels and usually has distinctive vertical patterns with vertical or straight lines and hidden fasteners. This roofing option is usually made of steel or aluminum and can be applied as a roof covering or as  an architectural accent for porches, dormers, verandas, bay windows, and sometimes for roof decks.

What Are the Types of Standing Seam Metal Roofs?

There are different types of standing seams to choose from. Most of them used steel and zinc aluminum alloy material, making the roof panel more resistant to corrosion and more durable. Here are the common types of standing seams:

  • Snap-lock profile
  • Mechanical lock profile
  • Batten panel profile

Why Choose Standing Seam Metal Roofing?

Standing seam metal roofs can give you several advantages. That's why it is growing in popularity among homeowners and business owners. Like asphalt shingles, standing seam roofs can also boost your home's curb appeal and property value.

Other benefits of a standing seam metal roof include the following:

Many Color Choices

Gone are the days when these were available only in sheet metal. Like asphalt roofs, there are now several design options available on the market, which makes it easier for homeowners to mix and match with the overall look of their property.

At Affordable Roofing Systems, we offer a wide variety of color choices for our standing seam metal roofing systems. Some of our metal roofing products also use a PVDF paint system.

Less Maintenance

Standing seam metal roofing is low maintenance. It is easier to maintain compared to an asphalt roof and other roofing materials. Some homeowners even say standing seam roofs are practically maintenance-free! The only routine required for raised seams is the occasional basic clean up like removing debris or checking the condition of the roofing panel.

Increased Home Value

Many home designers and experts say that renovating with a standing seam metal roof can recoup 85% to 95% of the costs. A successful home upgrade with standing seam roofing can also boost your property's resale value up to 6%.

Superior Curb Appeal

Enhance your home's curb appeal by installing a standing seam metal roof! Like asphalt shingles, standing seam metal roofing can provide your home with a striking appeal. With new colors and design patterns, you can easily match your preferences to give your property superior curb appeal!

Compatible With Solar Panels

Another benefit you can get from installing a standing seam metal roof is its compatibility with solar panels.  Whether you currently have solar panels or you are planning to install them in the future, the process will be a lot easier compared to other roofing materials.


You may find this surprising but a standing seam metal roof is very lightweight and flexible. This metal panel roofing system is easy to handle, carry and install. That's why it is one of the most recommended roofing options in the Tampa Bay area.

Long-Lasting & Durable

Standing seam metal roofing is popular for its durability and longevity.  A properly installed standing seam metal roof can last up to 50 years or even more! It can also withstand Tampa's humid and extreme weather.

Thermal Movement

Raised seams provide substantial support to metal panels and accommodate thermal movement. Standing seam metal roofing is usually attached with fasteners that enable panels to expand and run vertically. These panels are also designed to absorb movement across the roof surface, making it one of the most energy efficient roofing options. It can help reduce heating and cooling costs!

No Exposed Fasteners

Unlike some types of metal roofing, a standing seam metal roof has no exposed fasteners. This makes the entire roofing system more durable since fasteners are not exposed to UV, moisture, wind and other harsh elements.

Customized For Roof Size and Layout

This is one of the best advantages of standing seam metal roofs. They are fully customizable and versatile, making the entire roofing process a lot easier.

Engineered Systems Tested to Perform to High Standards

At Affordable Roofing, we prioritize the safety of our customers. That's why we only work with the best roofing manufacturers. Our metal roofing products have undergone a thorough system check-up to  ensure they perform to the highest standards. From product quality to installation, our team ensures you get a quality and durable roof.

Leak Prevention

This roofing system is usually installed with anti-leak protection and prevention. As long the roof panels are properly sealed and installed, leaks won't be a problem. In some cases, your roofer may recommend a double pinned standing seam roof for more stability and a better leak prevention system.

Fire Resistant

Most metal roofs are fire-resistant, particularly standing seam roofs. In addition, Affordable Roofing ensures our products and installation process comply with safety protocols and building codes.


In case you're not aware, standing seam metal roof types are recyclable. So, if you are looking for an environmentally-friendly roofing option, standing seam metal is a good choice.
