With steel roofing from such companies as Kassel & Irons, Edco, United States Seamless, and Metro, we offer our clients a wide range of attractive and durable as well as environmentally-sound alternatives to traditional roofing materials such as asphalt, wood, and clay. And one of the roofing profiles we're pleased to offer is standing seam steel.
While there are steel roofing profiles to provide the look of shingle, shake, and slate, standing seam steel roofing is unique. What makes it different from other roofing systems, and is it a good choice for your Twin Cities area home? The roofing system was developed to stand up in commercial applications in extreme climates, such as the Northeast coast and the Deep South. But more and more it is making its way into residential applications, not only in those areas but throughout the United States. Since the Twin Cities area is subject to severe storms and widely-fluctuating temperature and moisture conditions, Quarve Contracting, Inc., the leading roofing company in the Minneapolis metro area, recommends standing seam steel roofing for customers seeking something just a little out of the ordinary.
What makes standing seam steel roofing systems different?
- The panels have raised seams and are installed in an interlocking pattern. What this means is that the seams are raised about the roof. Water then runs off the roof because there is no leakage between the panels.
- The ridged panel profile provides architectural interest. If you're seeking a unique look for your home's exterior, standing seam steel roofing might just be your answer.
