Chances are good that you’ve seen a standing seam metal roof in Hawaii recently. The metal roofing panels are instantly recognizable due to their flat pan and narrow vertical rib design, solid colors, and lack of visible seams. Metal roofing and standing seam metal roofs, in particular, are taking off in popularity as home and business owners learn more about the benefits of metal roofing.
But there’s a difference between the corrugated metal roofing you remember from decades past and a standing seam metal roof in Hawaii. You may remember the old industrial tin roofs that were not much more than a wavy piece of steel or aluminum nailed down to a roof. They were flimsy, noisy, easily caught by the wind and, when the fasteners came loose, prone to leaks.
Today’s metal roofing is quite different, made from steel with baked on colors and extremely strong. Unlike corrugated metal roofing, standing seam metal roofs use concealed clips and are less likely to leak and stronger, able to handle anything that nature throws their way.
A standing seam metal roof on Hawaii homes and businesses is basically a highly engineered sheet metal roof. The roofs get their name from the “seam” that is located on each side of a roofing panel. Panels are connected to one another by interlocking these edges and fastening them together with concealed clips. The overlap hides and protects the fasteners and creates a vertical seam that runs the length of the roofing panel. The seam stands above the surface of the roof, rather than lying flush against it. Standing seam roofs are attractive, low-maintenance, simple, strong, durable, and energy efficient.
One of the biggest benefits of a standing seam metal roof in Hawaii is its leak protection. When installed correctly, there simply is nowhere for the roof to leak. Since the seams and fasteners are located above the flat of the roof, water doesn’t have a point of entry. Metal roofs installed with fasteners do not have this same built-in leak protection.
