Standing Seam Roofs...

Standing Seam metal roofing is becoming more popular and though metal roofing prices are often three times higher than the costs of conventional asphalt roofs, some consumers find them the preferred alternative.

At the lowest end, metal roofing panels will last between 20 and 30 years, close to three times longer than a traditional asphalt roof. Some steel roofing is coated with an aluminum-zinc alloy, providing the roof with a lifespan of up to 100 years.

The warranties on most standing seam metal roofing material range from 25 to 50 years. Resistance to hail, wind, flame sparks, and fire makes standing seam metal roofs a preferred alternative to asphalt for some people. When a standing seam metal roof is painted, it usually sheds snow once the ambient temperature increases a few degrees. This makes the material particularly attractive to homeowners in the mountainous or northern regions.

One of the reasons that standing seam metal roofing prices are higher is because the materials cost more to obtain. In addition, the installation process is very technically involved. Installers must possess special skills and have undergone training specific to the type of metal roofing system that is being used. Many more hours of tedious work are required to install a standing seam metal roof than are needed for an asphalt roof. It takes between two and three times longer to install a roof made from standing seam metal.

Of all roofing materials available, the lowest lifetime cost will be incurred by a standing seam metal roof, as long as it is properly installed. In some cases, the standing seam metal roof can outlast the building it is protecting. When homeowners go to sell their properties, they can often command a higher price because the buyer will never need to replace the roof.
