Residential standing seam metal roofs are an affordable metal roofing option with an attractive appearance and many colors and styles to choose from.

What are Standing Seam Roofing Systems?

The raised seam where panels connect gives standing seam systems their distinctive appearance.

Typically installed vertically, standing seam systems most often run from eave to ridge. Standing seam systems are installed with hidden clips and/or fasteners.

Advantages of Residential Standing Seam Metal Roofing

Standing seam systems have all of the benefits of metal roofing. A 50+ year lifespan and decreased utility costs from increased energy efficiency are two of the most critical advantages of metal roofing.

Residential standing seam systems are also available in a wide range of colors and finishes, which gives homeowners a great degree of flexibility to match the aesthetics of the home.

Installation with hidden clips and fasteners also helps make standing seam roofing less prone to leaking. Concealed fasteners contribute directly to a longer lifespan because when exposed fasteners are used, they penetrate the surface of the roof, which may decrease the lifespan of the panel and increase the risk of leaking. The lack of visible fasteners is also more visually appealing.

Standing seam systems also tend to be one of the more affordable metal roofing systems.
