What is Standing Seam Metal Roofing?
- Standing seam metal roofing panels are a product family of metal roofing. In the purest form, they are panels with male and female legs that are engaged and installed with clips to the roofing substructure. As panel options have grown however, it is common to see clip-less panels included in this product family as well.Regardless of the attachment method, it can consistently be maintained that standing seam panels do not use exposed fasteners in the plane of the panel during panel installation. Depending on project specifics, exposed fasteners may or may not be utilized for trim applications.Standing seam systems are used for a wide range of applications and projects. These systems feature interlocking seams that connect panels, giving the roof a distinct, and attractive, appearance. Furthermore, standing seam systems are manufactured from high-end steel or aluminum offering years of low-maintenance service life.McElroy Metal standing seam systems are durable and weathertight, making them ideal for most any application.
Advantages of Standing Seam Metal Roofing
- Concealed Fasteners. Concealed fasteners are one of the biggest advantages of standing seam roofing systems. In exposed fastener systems, the washer around the screw is made of neoprene material. Over time, sun can degrade the washer material and cause shrinking or cracking. When this phenomenon occurs, water can penetrate the building around the fastener/washer. The only correction for this is to back out all the screws and insert new oversized screws. Since there are no exposed screws with standing seam panel systems, they are considered a much more weather tight system.
- Expansion/Contraction through Clip or Slotted Flange System. Standing seam systems allow for expansion/contraction through either a clip or slotted flange system. Steel expands in heat and contracts in cool temperatures and will literally move on the roof. Exposed fastener systems, while less expensive to install, do not allow for expansion and contraction. In longer panel runs, the screws can wallow out on exposed fastener systems and allow water to penetrate the building around the fastener. The clip in standing seam systems allows the panel to float from eave to ridge to accommodate the phenomena of expansion and contraction.
- On-Site Panel Production For Long Lengths. While not available with every manufacturer, some of the major manufacturers (McElroy Metal included) have the ability to produce some standing seam panels on-site in lengths up to 250’. Single piece panels are quicker to install because the lap details required to join multiple shorter length panels are generally very time consuming for installation crews. In addition lapped systems often require additional parts and pieces which can further drive up the cost over continuous job site produced panels. Lastly, the weakest link in any roofing system is a lap so when one can be avoided it’s generally preferred.
- Aesthetics. Standing seam panels typically offer a taller and distinct vertical leg and fewer (if any) minor ribs in the center of the panel. This tall vertical leg can offer a nice shadow effect and the illusion of a flat pan in between the major ribs which many architects and building owners prefer.
