Standing Seam Roof Installation in McKinney
Paradigm Roofing is a roofing company in McKinney, TX. We have more than 30 years of experience in the roofing industry. We specialize in installing, repairing and replacing residential roofs including asphalt roofs, metal roofs, tile roofs, slate roofs, wood roofs and stone-coated metal shingle roofs.
Our premiere roof is the standing seam roof. Roofs with standing seams are metal roofs with raised seams. The raised seams on a standing seam metal roof are more than just attractive. They provide homeowners with a variety of benefits. The standing seams efficiently channel water into the gutters preventing water build-up during storms.
The roofs are also durable and very low maintenance. They are even low maintenance in winter. Snow and ice tend to slide off the metal roofing shingles and off the house. This prevents the dangerous buildup of snow and ice in the winter, prevents the need for shoveling your roof and allows the roof to ventilate year round.
Metal roofs constructed with standing seams can be constructed out of a variety of metals. They can be manufactured out of Aluminum, Copper, galvanized steel, Galvalume® steel, stainless steel and Zinc. Each type of metal has its own benefits and drawbacks. Galvanized steel is resistant to corrosion but can still corrode. Galvalume® steel is more resistant to corrosion than galvanized steel due to the fact that it is coated with a 55 percent mixture of aluminum and Zinc. Aluminum, galvanized steel and stainless steel have to be painted while Zinc and Copper roofs do not have to be painted.
Metal roofs with a standing seam can be installed in a variety of different ways. They can be installed with a field locking seam, a snap-lock system and as metal shingle panels. The difference in the types of standing seam metal roofs is simply the way they are installed. A field locking standing seam metal roof is locked into place using a special tool. A snap-lock standing seam metal roof is installed by literally locking the panels into place via the roofs own internal components, and vertical shingle panels are metal panels that are actually shingles but look like a traditional standing seam metal roof.
