What is Standing Seam Metal Roofing?
Standing seam metal roofing is a concealed fastener roofing system which features vertical or trapezoidal legs with a flat space in between. This metal roofing system from MBCI is one of the most durable and weather-tight roof systems available in the industry. Its concealed fastener design ensures that the fasteners aren’t exposed to the elements which could cause them to fail over time. Since these panels are attached to the roof deck with clamps, they’re free of any holes from nails or other fasteners which could allow moisture to seep through.
Standing Seam Metal Roof Panels
MBCI offers both snap-lock and mechanically field-seamed panels. Snap-lock panels are secured to the roof deck with clips which allow for thermal movement of roofing panels. Mechanically seamed panels are similar to snap-lock panels, however the clips securing them in place must be crimped together with a machine or by hand. There are four basic standing seam metal roof panel styles: double lock seam, symmetrical seam, one-piece snap-lock interlock and two-piece snap-lock interlock.
MBCI manufactures quality standing seam metal roofing panels that are lightweight and last up to 60 years. Standing seam panels offer sleek lines that create a modern look. They’re a great choice for residential, commercial and recreational building applications. So, when your design requires a metal roofing system that is both aesthetically pleasing and structurally sound, choose one of MBCI’s six standing seam metal roof systems.
