If you’re planning to replace the existing roof on your home, and you’re looking for a premium-quality material that provides exceptional durability and distinctive good looks, standing seam roofing is the ideal choice. This metal roofing style has become an increasingly popular choice with Athens and Huntsville homeowners because it offers a number of impressive benefits including:
Enhanced Safety and Durability
The greater safety that a fire- and wind-resistant metal roof brings to your home not only helps protect your family from harm, it can reduce your homeowner’s insurance premiums, too. Standing seam metal roofs require little maintenance, and they’re incredibly durable with lifespans of 40 to 50 years and backed by outstanding manufacturer warranties. Even the painted finish is warrantied to last for decades without chipping, peeling, fading, or chalking so it retains its beauty year after year.
Today’s standing seam roofing materials have highly-reflective coatings that reduce heat transfer into your home and lower your energy bills. In the summer, the coating reflects the sun’s powerful rays to keep the attic cooler and limit heat gain in the living space below, so your air conditioner doesn’t have to work as hard or use as much energy. During the heating season, the roof system’s design with fewer seams helps control energy losses and makes heating your home more efficient and less costly.
Eco-Friendly, Sustainable Roofing
Metal roofing is one of the few truly eco-friendly material choices on the market today. As mentioned, it can help improve your home’s energy efficiency and reduce your carbon footprint. There are two other key aspects of metal roofing that make it the ideal choice if you’re concerned about sustainability and keeping waste out of the local landfill: most metal roofing products contain a significant amount of recycled content, and your roof will be completely recyclable at the end of its service life, too.
Superb Style and Flair
The design and installation techniques used with a standing seam metal roof give it a sleek, modern appearance that perfectly complements both contemporary and country-style homes. It’s made of vertical panels that run from the roof ridge to the eaves. The fasteners are hidden from view, and each panel has an upturned edge that’s connected to the adjacent panel to create the distinctive bold lines of “standing seams.”
