METAL ROOFING FAST FACTS
According to the Metal Roofing Alliance, the leading professional trade association for metal roofing, hail causes about $1.6 billion dollars of damage to residential roofing in the U.S. per year!
By contrast, metal roofing, particularly those made from strong steel, are Class 4 rated (the highest rating from the insurance industry) against hail damage. The steel roofing products from Modern Metal Roofing can withstand hail up to 2.5″ in diameter!
STANDING SEAM VS. EXPOSED FASTENER SYSTEMS
Two of the most common types of metal roofing systems are standing seam roofing and “AG panel” roofing, which are corrugated metal, attached with exposed fasteners. A standing seam roof is comprised of continuous metal panels, rolled from raw metal coils, that feature interlocking “ribs” on each side of the panel. The standing seam panels are run to the entire length of the roofing side, usually onsite, meaning there are no seams to fail or exposed fasteners anywhere in the roofing system. Additionally, standing seam is usually produced from thicker metal than exposed fastener systems.
By contrast, exposed fasteners systems, sometimes referred to as “AG panel” roofing, are offered in pre-made lengths and are fastened together with screws to complete the length of the roof side. At the ridge and perimeter, these panels are secured with numerous screws as well. The end result is a metal roof with potentially hundreds of leak points, one where every screw and seam is located. Over time, due to expansion and contraction, the screws enlarge their holes in the metal, which allows leaks into the interior. The remedy for this condition is either roof replacement or unsightly caulking repairs that temporary, at best.
Standing seam roofing costs a little more upfront, since it typically utilizes thicker metal and takes a little longer to install. However, MMR’s premium standing seam roofs offer decades of service life with virtually no maintenance, while providing a clean, crisp profile that can enhance any home or business.
