When most homeowners begin thinking about a metal roof, all they can envision are the roofs they have seen on barns and commercial buildings. Those types of metal roofs typically have panels that run vertically up the roof.
The best looking and the most expensive metal roofs are often called Standing Seam Metal Roofs. These types of metal panel roofs are called "Standing Seam" because their prominent visual feature is the raised interlocking seam which joins one panel to the next. This refers to a seam that is mechanically hemmed every 12 to 24 inches depending on the look you want to achieve. The big advantage of a Standing Seam is there is no exposed fasteners on the roof. The panels are attached to the roof deck with metal clips and screws. These clips are hidden with the next panel. Standing seam roof is amongst the most durable and maintenance-free type of any metal roof and can last over 30 years.
Standing seam roofing provides additional energy reduction benefits and can be installed easily, in many instances over the existing roofing material. The Standing Seam roofing panels can be designed with various radius roof profiles making it ideal for structures with several roof levels.

Along with the lightweight strength standing seam, these metal roofs offer a modern twist on a classic look.
