Vertical Seam panels
The aesthetic and functional benefits of a standing seam metal roof make it an ideal choice for residential applications. The inherent strength of steel makes the roof strong but lightweight at the same time. Little to no maintenance is involved for owners. In most cases, a metal roof will last forty to fifty years. That is equivalent to three to four layers of a traditional shingle roof, depending on the location.
The residence utilizes 110 squares of Metal Sales’ 24 gauge, 16” wide Vertical Seam panels with a PVDF (Kynar 500®) finish in their Dark Bronze color. The color of the panels compliment the exterior of the home and match the existing accents around the windows and front door.
In addition to their 50-year life, Metal Sales panels come in a variety of colors that are listed with ENERGY STAR®. The metal panels improve a building’s energy-efficiency, reducing the amount of energy needed for cooling. Metal roofing’s ability to cover existing non-metal roofing, along with its longer life span, reduces the amount of chemical-based materials that end up in landfills.
In addition to being 100% recyclable, metal panels contain a high percentage of recycled material. While the EPA says that 11 million tons of asphalt shingles end up in landfills every year, steel is the number-one recycled material in North America according to the Steel Recycling Institute (SRI).
