Standing Seam Metal Roofing
Standing-seam is the most popular iteration of metal roofing. Essentially, this type of roofing raises the seams beyond the level of the actual roof, thereby creating panels that run from the ridge to the eaves of the roof. Its interlocking system ensures that a watertight seal is created, and also makes it one of the strongest, most reliable roof systems on the market today.
Advantages of Metal Roofs
Metal is one of the most reliable roofing materials on the market for both residential and commercial roofs. These are some of the characteristics that make it a great roofing option:
Metal roofing holds up well against all types of harsh weather conditions. It is even able to withstand debris and animal activity. The impact of severe weather in the Nashville area makes metal roofing an excellent choice for durability.
Maintenance on a metal roof is so easy that you could almost install it and forget about it. As with any roofing material, regular maintenance is a must, but the upkeep on a metal roof is so limited, that compared to other solutions like shingles, concrete, or tile, you’ll have a worry-free roof and save on costs in the long run.
Its durability and ease of maintenance contribute to metal roofs lasting a very long time – up to 50-70 years. That means that you may very well never have to replace your home’s roof again in your lifetime.
In most cases, a quality metal roof will be made of anything from 35% – 95% recyclable and/or recycled material. While the lifespan of a metal roof will be very long, when it does come time to remove it for whatever reason, the entire thing will be 100% recyclable, as opposed to being dumped in a landfill. In addition, its heat-reflecting capabilities mean the homeowner will save on home energy costs too, by reducing the need for cooling in the home.
While your metal roof will cost more upfront to install, it will cost less over its lifetime. The long-term investment is well worth it considering the reduction of maintenance and repair costs over the roof’s lifetime – a far cry from alternatives like asphalt shingles. On top of that, metal roof warranties also tend to be exceptional.
