If you’re interested in our standing seam roofing products, they are appropriate for a wide variety of applications. These panels can be a great choice for residential buildings and are commonly used for roofing or siding. Standing seam panels can be retrofitted on existing homes by tearing off the existing roof or installed during new construction. Components of a standing seam metal roof:
- Roof Decking: Wood boards that frame the roof.
- Metal Panels: PVC paint-coated steel panels that provide protection from the element and aesthetic appeal for the home or structure.
- Lock Strips: Tacking that securely attaches the metal panels to your roof.
- Clips: Concealed fasteners used to attach panels.
- Underlayment: Felt material layered over decking for extra protection from high heat, ice, and water.
- Z Bar: Metal flashing that covers the gap space at the end of the metal panels.
- Ridge Capping: Trim for the peak of sloped roofs.
The installation process begins by adding lock strips at the rakes and eaves. These strips are what your panels fasten to using the concealed fastener system. They are designed to be the same color and gauge as your panels for a seamless appearance.
Next, we will install the underlayment, which includes a high heat, ice, and water shield. Then each panel will be installed individually and fastened to the lock strip using the concealed fastener system. Once all the panels are in place, a piece of metal flashing called a Z bar can be installed to fill the gap between the metal panels and the top of the roof.
