Philadelphia's #1 Metal Roofing Company
Standing Seam Metal Roofing
A Standing Seam Metal Roof is great for Pennsylvania homeowners looking to add to the curb appeal and weather resistance of their home’s roof. Standing Seam Roofs are not the tin corrugated roofs that were installed on barns decades ago. Standing Seam Roofing systems are aesthetically pleasing and engineered to last a lifetime.
Standing Seam Material
Standing Seam is Galvalume, cold-rolled steel with 55% aluminum and 45% zinc alloy. Here at Metal Roofing PA, we offer this combination of metals because it ensures a lack of rust or corrosion for the life of the product.
Standing Seam Panel Locking
In addition to the combination of aluminum and zinc alloy, we also provide two basic panel locking systems for your metal roof:
- Architectural panels – Acts as Water-Shedding systems
- Structural panels – Acts as Water-Tight systems
Both panel systems are installed by our expert roofing installers. Additionally, the S-2000 is the only water-tight snap-lock system on the market and the A-1300 is the only water-tight architectural panel on the market and is ideal for low sloping roof applications with installation on as little a slope as ½ inch per foot. We also offer an A-1000 snap lock panel for a more affordable install.
Types of Standing Seam Roofs
One of the benefits of selecting a Standing Seam Metal Roofing system is that you’re offered many different choices to complement your home. We all want to be able to pick and choose! In fact, there are three different types of standing seam metal roofing systems.
The most common of one being
- Field Lock Standing Seam – Most common; uses special locking tool to connect the panels in the field
- Snap lock standing seam – Locks the panels together when one side is connected to the other
- Standing seam shingle based panels – Vertical shingle panels
Metal Shake XD Colors
For all the benefits of a metal roof with a more traditional or rustic look try a stone-coated Shingle, Shake or Terra Cotta styled look. Comprised of 26 gauge steel this product is covered with zinc-aluminum alloy, acrylic primer, basecoat, natural stone granules, and an overglaze to ensure your metal roof looks as good on day one as it does in year fifty!
Standing Seam Expansion and Contraction
Metal roofing standing seam, such as metal shingles and seam metal roof, are known to expand and contract slightly with a change in temperature which is why our roofing experts at Metal Roofing PA only custom fabricate our metal roofs and never use pre-fab kits. Your metal roof is designed with a custom Z flashing to allow for expansion and contraction (up to 1/8 inch for every 20 feet). Because we only install using concealed bracket systems, you never have to worry about leaks due to expansion!
