Roof Type


Standing seam metal roofing is becoming an increasingly popular option for homeowners as they look for a roof that has a modern look and lasts a long time.  Standing seam metal roofs are different than other metal roofs as they have a concealed fastener system with vertical legs and a flat area between the two legs.

Why should I choose standing seam metal for my roof?

Standing seam metal roofs provide a sleek look to any home.  Metal roofs are energy-efficient and eco-friendly, with many materials being recyclable.  A standing seam metal roof should last over 50 years if it is properly maintained.  Metal roofs come in a variety of profile types including snap-lock, mechanical seam, and batten panel.  They also come in a wide variety of colors to match your current aesthetic or to provide a unique color to your home’s palette.


What else should I know about standing seam metal roofs?

Standing seam metal roofs will most likely be more expensive than an asphalt shingle roof.  They are also a heavy product that might require some supporting structural attention before installation.  After installation, standing seam metal roofs will use fasteners that have their own lifespan, outside of the metal itself.  These fasteners will require maintenance throughout the lifespan of the roof.  A poor quality installation, repair, or materials can cause expensive damage to a standing seam metal roof, so ensure that a licensed professional like Burns & Scalo installs and maintenances your metal roof.
