Standing seam metal roofing is more often used for commercial applications than for residential use. However, you if you would like to consider it for use on your home, consider the following advantages this type of roofing offers.
For a home that has limited or questionable roof support strength, metal roofing is lighter in weight than other types of materials.
In places that need insulation from heat during warmer seasons, metal roofing such as standing seam reflects heat from the sun's radiation more than non-metallic systems.
Standing seam metal roofs are usually considered more attractive than some other systems. On front porches, they have a special appeal, particularly because they are available in a wide variety of colors.
If you like the idea of a metal roof but would prefer the look of tiles, shingles or other such roofing designs or materials, you can select a system of standing seam roof that resembles any style.
Labor cost for installing the standing seam roof is typically less than for other roofing systems because this system can be installed on top of an existing roofing system. Consequently, labor costs for removing older existing systems are reduced or eliminated.
