The 4 Benefits Of Standing Seam Metal Roofs

By Stacy Mellete

When it comes to commercial buildings, it’s understandable if you think that you don’t have a lot of material options. After all, most of the roofing options that are available on the market are often made for residential roofing. For so long, most thought that there’s only one roofing material available for commercial purposes. Surprisingly enough, standing seam metal roofs are slowly gaining popularity as a roofing material, both for residential and commercial roofing services.

In this post, Affordable Roofing Systems, local metal roofing contractor Tampa FL, discusses the four advantages of standing seam metal roofs.

  1. Long Lifespan – No one wants to replace their roofing systems every few years, especially for commercial buildings. However, with standing seam metal roofs, you won’t ever have to worry about replacing your roof at the tiniest sign of damage. So long as you keep up with the roofing system’s proper maintenance, you can expect it to last anywhere between 30 to 50 years.

  1. Durable – Metal is a tough and durable material, so it can be expected that it’ll retain the same qualities when used on roofing systems, meaning it can withstand damage that the average material usually can’t. However, that doesn’t mean it’s invulnerable as it can still be penetrated or dented by heavy debris.

  1. Cool Roof – On the other hand, if you’re looking for an energy efficient roofing material for your residential or commercial roofing system, then standing seam metal roofs are a good option to consider. 

  1. Since you can paint it in any light color available, standing seam metal roofs can reflect the heat from the sun and prevent the solar heat gain that increases your monthly cooling costs. To install standing seam metal roof in your building, you can always turn to roofing company Affordable Roofing Systems.

  1. High Seams – With the material’s high seams, the weak point of your roofing system that can be used as a potential entry point for moisture are raised above the roofing panel, allowing you to further protect the system’s structural integrity.
