Standing Seam

A standing seam metal roof is a great choice for a homeowner because they require very little maintenance and are extremely long-lasting. With a standing seam metal roof, it’s unlikely the roof will ever have to be replaced.

What’s Involved in a Standing Seam Metal Roof

These types of roofs have metal panels that are placed vertically on the roof deck. The panels connect to one another by crimping and creating a seal that keeps the elements out, there are no exposed fasteners. A standing seam metal roof is typically made with either steel, aluminum or copper. The copper choice offers a distinctive look but is easily the most expensive of the three choices.

Advantages of a Standing Seam Metal Roof
  • Weather resistant. No matter the metal chosen, the homeowner ends up with a roof that can withstand high winds and hail and is exceptionally waterproof and impervious to fire.
  • Lightweight. Many types of standing seam metal roofs weigh less than 200 pounds per square, making it easier to transport and therefore easy to install. Metal roofs are lighter than composite roofing, but still retain considerable strength and durability.
  • Puncture resistant. Whether it’s from flying debris in a storm, contact with a nearby tree or an accidental misstep or other accident by a homeowner walking on the roof, punctures are a very common way for leaks to develop on roofs. But a standing seam metal roof is nearly puncture resistant.
  • Natural reflectors. The rays of the sun naturally reflect off of metal roofs, which also can be covered with additional reflective coating to help create a cool roof. Instead of super-heating 70 to 80 degrees above the outside temperature, a metal roof reflects much of the sunlight and keeps the roof at a temperature closer the actual reading outside. This also leads to lower energy bills, particularly in the summer.
  • Cost effective. While the standing seam metal roof may cost more, initially, than other roof types such as asphalt or wood, lifetime cost breakdown offers a different analysis. When other roofing types are replaced every 15 to 25 years, a metal roof can remain viable for 50 years or longer. In addition, standing seam metal roofs have very low maintenance costs.

Why DECRA Stone Coated Steel

Are metal roofs noisy?
No, the stone coated steel design of the DECRA® roof deadens the sound of the rain and even hail unlike a non-stone coated metal roof.

Is a metal roof hotter in the summer and colder in the winter?
No, many customers report a reduction in energy costs during summer and winter months after installing a DECRA® roof. Also, a DECRA® stone coated steel roof can be installed over an existing roof, providing additional insulation from temperature extremes. (check local code requirements)

Is a metal roof dangerous in weather with lightening?
No, metal roofing is both an electrical conductor, and a noncombustible material.

Can I get a discount on my homeowners insurance?
In many states, the Class 4 rating can earn a discount on homeowners insurance. Just ask your local agent for details in your state.

Is a DECRA® Roofing System more expensive?
A DECRA® roof offers more value for your money. With a minimum 50 year life expectancy, you would have to purchase and install 2-1/2 shingle roofs for the cost of one DECRA roof. Like most products you buy, "you get what you pay for."

Is DECRA® the "original stone coated steel roofing system"?
Yes, DECRA® has a long history and is the original stone coated steel roofing system developed by L.J. Fisher in 1957 as a solution to a wartime crisis.
