STANDING SEAM METAL ROOFING
Houses with metal looking roofs most likely have a "standing seam" type of roof. With standing seam roofs, continuous vertical panels run from the ridge of the roof all the way down to the eaves. Between the panels are seams connected by fasteners which are raised above the level of the metal roofing. This is where we get the term "standing seam", because the seam is raised or standing, as opposed to flush-mounted. The standing seam look is often associated with certain types of Contemporary, Country/Cabin, or Key West style houses. The metal is generally available in an array of gray, blue, brown, green, red and other earthy colors. Metal roofs have an excellent lifespan, are very energy efficient, and have excellent wind, fire, ice dam, and earthquake resistance. Metal is very tough, but it's not impervious to all hazards. The sheet metal in this type of roofing can sometimes be penetrated by heavy falling limbs or dented by a severe hailstorm. Thus, a thicker (22 ga) metal panel is usually used on quality roofs.
