What to Know About Standing Seam Roofs

Posted on May 26, 2020


When it comes to replacing your home’s roofing system, there are plenty of questions to consider. The first thing most homeowners consider is the cost, and that’s understandable. Others may first think about the ideal material for their new roof. Maybe they’re sick of shingles and want a metal roof. Others will want to make a splash with a strong color choice.

If you’re thinking about a metal roofing system, you’ll want to know the key benefits of a standing seam roofing system. You may decide that the benefits of a metal roofing system is right for your home. Many homeowners worry about the cost because they envision having to remove the existing roof. And when you’re a homeowner with a low-slope roofing system, this worry is valid because the new roofing system may not be compatible for an overlay.

But what you may not know is that there are metal panels specifically designed to fit over your existing roofing system. By not removing the old roofing system, you can obviously save on overall costs.

One of the other reasons homeowners love metal roofing systems is their perceived impact on improving energy efficiency. There are other additional advantages to choosing a metal roofing system, including:

  • Fewer labor hours as a result of the ease of installation saves money during construction.
  • Competitive material costs, particularly if the metal roofing is part of a total metal building package from a single manufacturer.
  • Minimal maintenance requirements and aversion to rusting, mold growth and decay that save the building owner money over time.

These reasons and more add up to a very cost-efficient choice. When you couple that with the Lifetime Guarantee that comes with all Honest Abe Roofing products, you’re only going to invest once and enjoy a lifetime with your brand new roofing system.
