A standing seam metal roof is defined as a metal panel system with concealed fasteners, where the panels consist of a broad flat area between two vertical seams (or legs). Essentially, it is a system where you overlap and interlock the edges of the adjacent panel together. The biggest advantage to this method is that instead of having to drill a hole into the metal, it instead involves using an external clip to hold the panels down. In other words, though the fastener does penetrate the roofing deck, the penetration will always be shielded and concealed by the overlapping layers of metal that are snapped in place above it.
This ensures that the hardware used to secure the metal roof material to the roofing substrate is not exposed to the elements and will remain watertight which adds to the longevity of the roof. Simply put… no exposed screw hole penetrations in the metal equate to no leak points.
Standing seam roofs feature a raised interlocking seam, which allows for adjoining panels to be secured to one another by crimping and folding the edges at the seam. This allows for excellent protection while still giving a sleek, modern, seamless appearance. They also come in a variety of materials that include Aluminum, Copper, Steel, and Zinc.
