Standing seam is a descriptive industry term for vertical sheet metal panels. It’s one of the most popular metal roofing styles for homes, thanks to its beauty, durability, longevity, simplicity, versatility, energy efficiency, and its remarkably clean, bold looks.
Standing seam is a high-end upgrade and an undisputed step up in quality and longevity from the classic corrugated and ribbed style metal roofs. Unlike its predecessor, corrugated steel roofing, standing seam has an improved design featuring concealed fasteners. Its ingenious design featuring the raised seams, with no exposed screws in the roof, helps minimize the chance of a roof leak down the road, along with providing an enhanced aesthetic.
