Types of Standing Seam Metal Roofing
Standing seam metal roofing comes in a variety of configurations. Each one interlocks a little bit differently, and they all provide different types of protection.
Snap-lock roofing systems have special edges that snap together with a male leg and a female leg. It doesn’t require the standing seam metal roof contractor to hand or mechanically fasten because they are secured by a simple click in place. Since this requires less labor, it results in lower costs. Snap-lock roofing can be installed in any environment as long as it is installed according to manufacturer specifications.
Mechanical lock roofing systems have edges that line up together. Once lined up, they require the use of a mechanical seamer to bend and secure them in place. They come in single lock and double lock profiles for better performance and insulation in colder weather.
Batten panel roofing systems have edges that line up together and are secured by a metal cap to create the seam. Depending on the type of cap, some are more secure than others. The more secure the cap, the better the roofing system will perform in inclement weather environments.
