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.

The best roofers in the Detroit area. They provide excellent customer service and were very helpful in making my decision. I would recommend them to my friends and family without hesitation. My experience with Detroit Roofers has been a pleasure from start to finish. After having several estimates done for my roof, I decided to use the services of this roofing company in Detroit because they were the most competitively priced but also had a great reputation for their customer service. The crew was quick, professional, and did an amazing job of installing a new metal roof on my house in just one day! It's great knowing that they have such high standards that make me feel confident about their workmanship when it comes to protecting my home.

I had no idea having a roof replacement in Detroit could be so simple. They agreed to come out the next day to give me a price, immediately scheduled me in, and rebuilt the roof in less than a day and a half. The crew was incredibly accessible via phone and text. I appreciate that they acknowledged I was under a tight timeline and did all they could to cooperate with me and assist me accomplishing that target. Thank you so much for taking care of my needs! I definitely recommend Detroit Roofers!

Our house now has a new roof thanks to Detroit Roofers. Their crew was excellent. Hardworking, professional, respectful, and great at safeguarding furniture and shrubbery about the house, as well as cleaning up after the project was complete. The work was completed in a single day, and the roof looks amazing. Derrick did an excellent job of overseeing the project from start to end. I would refer them to anyone in the Detroit area who is in need of roofing services.

My partner and I were anxious about our roof project due to it being the first big item we had to worry about the safety of with the house as younger, first-time property owners. Detroit Roofers was fantastic to work with and helped make the process a breeze!! They were always on time for all of it, always responded quickly, and took the time to inform and educate me in detail what I didn't understand. Dave and his crew did a tear off (including some cedar shake areas), relocated our kitchen vent, replaced some sub-decking, and finished the new shingling just in time for some rain. The team was extremely professional, quick, and efficient in all aspects of the project! My partner and I will always suggest them as the go-to roofing contractors in Detroit to anyone we know who is looking for one. Thank you once more, gentlemen!

David and Detroit Roofers were an absolute pleasure to work with. Communication was straightforward and professional. They were patient when it came to negotiating the final bill for wind damage repairs with my insurance provider and credit union. His crew did an excellent job and picked up after themselves. I highly recommend these Detroit roofing contractors!!

David responded quickly to our request for a quote. We had a large roof that needed to be replaced, as well as gutter replacement. It was an older house in the Detroit suburbs with some rotting wood, but David had foreseen this and had new wood on hand. The issue was worse than expected, but he and his crew had extra wood there right away. New vents were installed, but first he explained that having more than one vent would be ideal for proper airflow. He also addressed all of our concerns and questions. The crew was fantastic, and clean-up was done every night. We are very satisfied with the work that was completed and would highly suggest him to anyone who needs to replace or repair their roof. Thank you so much, Detroit Roofers!!
