Standing Seam Metal Roofing: A Water-Resistant Solution for Your Roof
We understand how demanding it can be to care for your Dayton home. With warm, humid summers and cold, snowy winters, it’s challenging to find roofing materials you can trust to endure the region’s harsh weather conditions and stand the test of time.
When you invest in standing seam metal roofing, you don’t have to question how this durable material will withstand harsh weather. Thanks to the hidden seams and a strong makeup, your new roof will be able to endure hail, wind, rain, snowstorms, and more. Not to mention, it will last a lifetime!
What Is Standing Seam Metal Roofing?
Standing seam metal roofing is a concealed fastener roofing system featuring vertical seams that rise above the roof’s flat surface. The metal seams can be indirectly attached to the roof’s decking using clips or directly secured to the deck using a fastener. Typically, standing seam metal roofing is made with steel or copper.
American Way Exteriors installs high-quality metal roofing products made here in the United States. We cut the copper or steel for your installation on-site, so we can perfectly customize your roof to match your exterior and ensure the metal is thick enough to stand up to hail damage or heavy impacts common to the Dayton area.
Our standing seam metal roofing systems come with industry-leading warranties for paint and water damage to provide you peace of mind for decades to come.
Standing Seam Metal Roofing vs. Regular Metal Roofing: What’s the Difference?
Standing Seam Metal Roofing
Standing seam metal roofing uses a hidden fastener system, meaning all the seams are concealed, resulting in greater water resistance and a long lifespan—often lasting more than 50 years! Because of its durability, this type of roofing costs more than traditional metal roofing, and it’s nearly three times the cost of asphalt roofing shingles.
Regular Metal Roofing
Regular metal roofing systems include exposed seams, so they are more likely to suffer from water damage. While they’re more affordable than standing seam metal roofing, they’re more costly to maintain and usually need to be replaced after 30-40 years.
Advantages of Standing Seam Roofing
- Impressive longevity — Standing seam metal roofing lasts 30-50 years, longer than asphalt shingles.
- Sleek, modern curb appeal — Standing seam metal creates smooth, elegant lines that are unforgettable. It comes in several attractive colors, offering more variety than asphalt
- Strong weather resistance — With fewer seams than asphalt shingles, standing seam roofing is better at preventing moisture damage and keeps homes cooler in summer.
- Easy maintenance — While asphalt shingles can come loose easily, standing seam metal roofing stays in place. There’s less upkeep, saving you time and money.
