Why Standing Seam Panels for Your Roof?

In our years of roofing and construction, we've encountered all varieties of metal roofs. We can talk about aluminum, tin, copper, corrugated, tile-inspired, shake-inspired, and so on. The possibilities are plenty, but at the end of each day, we find standing seam metal panels as king for several reasons, which we'll discuss below.

A Specialized Installation. The most crucial part of any new roof is the installation process, and even more true for a standing seam metal roof. Two types of fastening systems are used in metal roofing: concealed and exposed fastener. Standing seam panels are a concealed fastening system where each seam fits perfectly within the other and is screwed to a substrate; rather than thousands of screws on the metal roof surface as with exposed fasteners. This highly technical process, where no fasteners are visible, adds air-tight insulation and the most uncompromising Michigan weather protection to your building. Concealed fasteners, rather than exposed, are minimal and hidden from the elements, which protects from rusting, and not having all the screw holes eliminates the potential for any leaking.

A Lifetime Roof.
 Together with our installation process, steel is the most durable material that can withstand many situations. This durability gives a Timeless Metal Roof a lifespan of 70+ years, eliminating the need to replace your roof again. Steel can also withstand possible heavy weight from damaging trees and flying objects caused by high Michigan winds(imagine never having to worry about losing a shingle again!) and receive a Class A fire rating in safety, the highest out there.


Added value and integrity to your home. Between the installation process, lifespan and durability, a standing seam metal roof increases the value of your home while decreasing the cost of month-to-month energy bills. When it comes to reselling your home down the road, expect a higher resale value than a traditional asphalt roof.

Standing seam metal roofs have many benefits that make them a popular choice among homeowners and builders. Some of the benefits of standing seam metal roofs include:

Durability: Metal roofs are known for their durability and can last for decades with proper maintenance. Standing seam metal roofs in particular are known for their longevity, as they are less prone to damage from wind, hail, and other weather events.

Energy efficiency: Metal roofs are good at reflecting sunlight, which can help to keep your home cooler in the summer. This can lead to energy savings on your air conditioning costs.

Low maintenance: Standing seam metal roofs require very little maintenance, as they do not rot or deteriorate over time. They are also resistant to pests, such as termites, which can be a problem with other types of roofs.

Weather resistance: As mentioned earlier, standing seam metal roofs are highly resistant to wind, hail, and other weather events. This can provide peace of mind for homeowners, knowing that their roof is well-protected.

Environmental benefits: Metal roofing is often made from recycled materials, making it an environmentally-friendly choice. It is also 100% recyclable at the end of its lifespan, making it a sustainable option for homeowners.
