Standing Seam Metal Roofs
Not every roofing company in the industry knows the art of installing a standing seam metal roof, but it’s one of our specialties at EverGuard. So if you’re looking for a roof that will set yourself apart from others on the block — while also providing great energy-efficiency and durability — consider going with a standing-seam metal system.
The name comes from the way the seam fasteners are mounted. Rather than sitting flush with the panels of the roof, these fasteners are raised above the level of the metal, creating vertical texture. These roofs do not rust, are available in several different colors (all of which are fade-resistant), and they never need cleaning.

Standing Seam Metal: The Advantages
This type of roofing system, which offers a clean and tailored look for your home or business, is very resistant to staining. And unlike asphalt shingles, which can greatly wear down over time due to weather, standing seam metal roofs prove to be much more resistant over time.
The seams themselves, which range in height from a half-inch to 1.5 inches, help protect against water because of the very fact that they’re raised. There are also fewer seams total to contend with, in part because of this type of system, there are no horizontal seams at all.
This type of roof is considered a “cool” type by the Environmental Protection Agency. This is because metal can be painted any color and can, therefore, help deflect UV rays.
As for the appearance of a standing seam metal roof, they can give your home a sleek, smooth top —which actually works well on both contemporary and country-style houses.
Although metal roofing is generally more costly than asphalt shingles, the cost can often be made up over time, due to metal’s longer lifespan.
