Out of all metal roofing systems, the standing seam metal roof is becoming increasingly sought after as residential and commercial building owners opt for products that are cost-effective, top quality, low maintenance and easy to install. Today, we take a quick look at the various standing seam metal roofing profiles
What Is Standing Seam Metal Roofing?
A standing seam metal roof is described as having raised seams – or vertical legs – that rise above the broad, flat area of the panel. The main difference between a standing seam and other metal roofing structures is that the fastener is concealed, whether the panel is directly attached to the decking material with a fastener flange or attached to the roof with a clip.
Common Standing Seam Metal Roofing Profiles
- Snap-Lock Profile
The snap-lock profile is a popular choice for standing seam roofs because it does not require the use of specialized tools to attach or pinch the seams. Instead, metal panels are carefully roll-formed with specifically shaped edges – a male and female leg – that snap together.
- Mechanical Lock Profile
Similar to the snap-lock profile, the mechanical lock roofing has male and female edges. Once the panels are engaged, a mechanical seamer is utilized to lock the panels and complete the seam.
- Batten Panel Profile
With a batten panel residential roofing system, two legs of the panels are roll-formed and then butted up next to one another, mimicking the older batten roof style. Unlike other standing seam structures, batten panels do not feature male and female edges. Instead, both attachments have a perpendicular leg. To create a seam, a metal cap can either snap on or mechanically put into place.
- Nail Flange or Fastener Flange Profile
This roofing structure has panels with male and female ends. But instead of requiring a clip to attach the panel to the deck, is it directly fastened to the deck through the male attachment of the metal panel.
- Flush Wall & Soffit Profile
This profile combines various elements from other standing seam profiles. Male and female edges allow the panels to snap together. However, the seams are flush with the panel rather than possessing a perpendicular leg.
