What Is a Standing Seam Metal Roof?
Standing seam is a term used by the industry to describe what is essentially vertical, sheet-style metal locked together to form a roof. This lock is secured one of two ways, either with hidden anchors under the interlocking panel, or with visible fasteners. The term “standing seam” is essentially a literal descriptive, as the seams stand raised above the panel.
Standing seam bears some similarity to their cousin, corrugated metal roofing, which you commonly see on industrial and commercial buildings (you occasionally see corrugated metal on residential structures as well, but it’s fairly uncommon). The differences lie mainly in aesthetics, but standing seam roofing also utilizes a thicker sheet of metal and overall provides a greater durability.
