Standing Seam Metal Roofing

Professional Standing Seam Metal Roofing Contractors

standing seam metal roofing roofStanding seam metal roofing is made of panels that fit together. This system of pieces that fit together makes it the strongest and most reliable roof on the market right now. It is completely waterproof and comes in different colors, so you can make it fit your needs.

Detroit Roofers know that standing seam metal roofing, like other types of metal roofing, helps keep your home at a comfortable temperature by reflecting the sun. This can save you money on your heating and cooling bills. Because your new roof is more stable, your insurance rates may go down as well.

What is Standing Seam Metal Roofing?

Standing seam metal roofing is just what it sounds like. Because the panels overlap, the seams are higher than the roof itself. It’s a cool design aspect that makes standing seam metal roofs more attractive than some other types of metal roofing.

Design-like customizations would make the seams less stable, but this type of roofing is still very flexible in terms of colors and patterns, length and width, thicknesses, and seam types.

Types of Standing Seam Metal Roofing

There are different kinds of seams on standing seam metal roofs. Each one fits together a little differently, and they all protect in different ways. Depending on the environment, you can choose a seam type that works best for you.


Snap-lock roofs have special edges with a male leg and a female leg that snap together. The standing seam metal roof contractor doesn’t have to fasten it by hand or with a tool because it just clicks into place. Costs are lower because this requires less work. Snap-lock roofing can be put up anywhere, as long as it is done according to the instructions from the manufacturer.

Mechanical Lock

Edges of mechanical lock roofing systems also fit together. Once they are in place, they need to be bent and held in place with a machine called a seamer. For better performance and insulation in colder weather, they come with either a single lock or a double lock.

Batten Panel

Roofs with batten panels have edges that line up and are held together by a metal cap. This makes a seam. Some caps are more secure than others, depending on the type. When bad weather comes, the roofing system will work better if the cap is more secure.

Pros of Standing Seam Metal Roofing

With a standing seam metal roof, the way the panels fit together makes sure that none of the fasteners are exposed to the weather, where they can break down over time. Metal roofs are all durable, but sometimes the fasteners need to be changed when they wear out. This doesn’t happen with a standing seam metal roof because there are no fasteners that stick out.

A standing seam metal roof is also unique from other metal roofing systems because the panels aren’t nailed down. This means they can move more freely and break less often as the weather changes.

As with all metal roofing systems, standing seam metal roofing is durable, can be changed, lasts a long time, is good for the environment, and saves energy. All of these are reasons why we love the fact that metal roofs are being used more and more.

Maintenance of Standing Seam Metal Roofs

Other metal roofing systems use fasteners, so even though they don’t need much maintenance, you still have to inspect for loose or broken fasteners and replace them if necessary. But a standing seam metal roof doesn’t have fasteners that go through the metal, so you don’t need to do this type of maintenance.

Always, maintenance is needed, but a standing seam metal roof needs much less of it. All you should have to do is look for low-hanging branches, other metal, or debris and clear it away.

Cost of Standing Seam Metal Roofs

But there is a price to pay for standing seam metal roofing. Because it is made in a factory, it is one of the most expensive types of metal roofing. To make the edges, you have to roll the metal in a certain way, and not many contractors know how to do the installation of a standing seam metal roof.

Installation takes a lot of work, which also drives up the cost. But if you hire a good standing seam metal roofing company, you’ll get a professional installation, a great warranty, and a roof that will last for a long time.

During the lockdown, we chose to get a new roof and gutters. We went with Detroit Roofers, even though their quote was a bit higher, because they were really clear about the materials and the high standard of work they promised. Totally worth it and we're really happy with the result. Just last week, during a huge rainstorm, we noticed a leak from one of the gutters. We got in touch with them, and David from their team came by today. He's awesome, really cares about his work and the reputation of Detroit Roofers. We've recommended them before and we'll do it again – top-notch quality all the way.

The owners are really approachable and know their stuff. Everything went super smoothly, and they were cool with fixing our roof while we were away, which was a huge help. Really enjoyed dealing with them. They're quick, do a great job, and it's awesome that they're a local family-run business. Definitely recommend them.

We reached out to several roofing companies for quotes, but Detroit Roofers was the only one that got back to us quickly. We really valued their clear communication and the quality of their work. I'd definitely suggest them for any roofing projects. Plus, they completed our job sooner than expected.

Detroit Roofers just came by to give us an estimate after a branch made a hole in our roof. David showed up a bit early, super professional, and said he'd give us a couple of options to consider. But what really impressed me was that he went the extra mile by finding some temporary materials in his truck to cover the hole better than our makeshift trash bag solution. This kind of effort has us leaning towards choosing them, no matter the cost. It's clear they value quality, and that's the kind of service that earns loyalty.

Our office got a new roof by Detroit Roofers and we're all impressed. It’s no longer leaking all over the place and it’s a safer work environment. Their commercial roofing service is solid and professional. Highly recommended!
I was dreading the whole roof repair process, but Detroit Roofers made it so easy. Really glad I chose them. After getting a few quotes, went with Detroit Roofers for our asphalt roofing repair. Best decision ever. The roof looks fantastic.
