When it comes to commercial roofing, you have plenty of options to chose from, from traditional flat roof solutions, to long-lasting metal variations. If you choose to explore the metal route, you can expect to choose from a handful of excellent roof choices. Today we will discuss the many benefits of a standing seam metal roof installation!
Standing seam metal roofs can last upwards of 50 years in good conditions, which is almost twice as long as some traditional roofing materials.
Due to the metal material, as well as the specialty design, standing seam metal roofs are very strong and capable of withstanding damages from hail, rain, and heavy winds too. Also, metal roofing in general provides some of the best fire protection in the industry!
The way the panels are designed, they are able to easily withstand leaks after heavy periods of rain. The vertical seams create an interlocking system that is impervious to penetration by water.
Another benefit you can expect from a standing seam metal roof is increased energy efficiency for your building. The metal reflects sun rays and keeps your building cool, allowing your A/C to have an easier time maintaining temperatures.
While this next one applies to most metal roof systems, it is certainly worth mentioning. Some cities offer tax breaks to companies with metal roofs, and many insurance companies will gladly offer lower insurance rates for a metal-roofed property!
