Standing seam roofing is one of the best choices if you are in the market for metal roofing, and if you’re looking for standing seam roofing in Philadelphia or the surrounding area, you can count on Level Edge Construction to provide the best standing seam roofing installation service in the area.
Standing seam roofing is characterized by long, continuous panels that run from the ridge of a roof all the way down to the eaves. They get their name from the fact that they have raised seam fasteners that stand above the level of the roof.
Standing seam roofing has a lot of advantages over other roofs, both other metal roofs and other types of materials. Some of those advantages are:
• High seams: The raised seams of standing seam roofing are a huge advantage – seams are the weak point of any roof, and the fact that standing seam roofing has the seams raised above the level of the roof means that there is much less opportunity for the seams to fail and allow moisture to get into the roof.
• Fewer seams: In addition to having seams that are less vulnerable, standing seam roofs also have fewer seams in total than other types of roofs. Since the seams run straight down from the ridge to the eaves, there are no horizontal seams - making your roof much stronger.
• Metal is durable: Speaking of strength, standing seam roofs (like all metal roofing) are much stronger than other roofing materials. Your standing seam roof will be able to stand up to damage that would wreck many other types of roofs, and can last decades longer.
In most parts of the country, the biggest disadvantage of standing seam roofing is that it’s difficult to find an installer who knows how to handle them. However, if you live in Philadelphia or the surrounding area, you can count on Level Edge Construction to install your standing seam room correctly, the first time.
