There are emerging alternatives to conventional types of roofing systems, with standing seam metal roofs being one of them. WaterpROOFessional Roofing Company, your go-to company for roofing repair services, elaborates on what makes standing seam metal roofing systems a viable alternative to the more popular types.
Moisture is the bane of any roofing system. Whether it’s concrete or metal, rainwater can slowly corrode the roof surface until it can create an opening. Once it seeps through, rotting the underlying structure of your roof.
Luckily, a standing seam metal roof is less susceptible to moisture damage than the more conventional types of commercial and residential roofing systems. As its name suggests, the seam, a potential entry point for rainwater, is lifted above the roofing panel. This makes it highly unlikely that rainwater can seep through your roof and cause leaks.
A standing seam metal roof would be a great option for environmentally conscious homeowners. A portion of most metal roofs are made of recycled material, and, even if they don’t contain any recycled material, they can be easily reused at the end of their lifespan.
Modern Aesthetic Appeal
With seam metal roof systems, homeowners will get to enjoy a lot more design flexibility. Metal roofing systems come in a wide variety of shades and colors. Homeowners can use lighter colors to prevent their roof from absorbing too much solar heat. Vivid colors, combined with the elevated seams and smooth straight lines, give your house a modern industrial feel that’s popular among contemporary and country-style houses.
