What is Standing Seam Roofing?
Standing seam roofing is the most popular way of covering a roof in copper ,zinc ,aluminium or colorsteel and has been used for over a century. The fine lines of the standing seams give the system its light, attractive appearance and contribute to its flexibility.
Standing seam roofing is suitable for:
- Roof pitches between 3° and 90° (including as vertical cladding),
- Barrel vaulted roofs,
- Conical and domed roofs.
The roofing can be installed over a ventilated or non-ventilated roof construction allowing you to choose the best solution for the characteristics of your project. Fixings are hidden and indirect. The standing seam roofing needs a continuous support behind it and normally uses 18mm plywood H3.2 treated. The covering is then able to withstand a certain amount of foot traffic.
Standing seam roofs are very easy to maintain and they can be applied to any building from residential buildings through to office blocks and factories.
