Standing Seam Metal Roofing
Standing seam is probably the most recognizable profile of metal roofing for both commercial and residential projects.

For Residential Roofing Statewide Roofing recommends a small panel width standing seam pannel– usually around 12 inches. Wider panels work better for more commercial and industrial purposes than residential buildings. There are literally dozens of different standing seam roofing profiles that can be achieved with metal roofing— from the traditional standing, seam look to the old-world tile look or the beauty of shakes, to the more agricultural corrugated look. It is this very variety of sheet metal roofing profiles is one of the great advantages of the Sheet Metal Roofing System. From more traditional to modern there is a metal roofing profile that will match your roof and your home’s architecture.
One of the big choices is to choose the fastening system through-fastened vs. clip-fastened systems, standing seams can be either through- or clip-fastened. Through-fastened standing seam systems are less common and utilize a fastening “flange” that runs the length of the panels. The fasteners are driven through this flange and then concealed by the subsequent panel. This keeps the fastening away from the elements however it still goes through the panel. These systems are more cost-effective options, but since most quality standing seams used residentially are continuous panels—meaning the panels are custom-formed to the length of the rafter—using these through-fastened panels is not recommended on longer rafter lengths. Statewide Roofing can assist you in choosing the right profile and fastening system for your home.
Shake, Shingle, Tile, and Slate Profiles
The growth in demand for a standing seam in the residential roofing market is exceeded only by that of metal shake, shingle, tile, and slate profiles. These Metal Roofing Systems allow the residential homeowners the opportunity to have the benefits of metal roofing along with the looks of something very traditional which can mimic the natural roofing products with all the strengths of metal without any of the disadvantages of the natural product. The four different types of these “modular” panels can vary greatly in terms of look and use.
Metal shakes are designed to mimic the look of hand split cedar shakes. They are however lightweight, faster to install, fireproof and are not subject to splitting. While many homeowners select these shake systems because of their resemblance to wood shakes and also because of the long-term performance metal provides, many other homeowners enjoy these specialty metal shake systems for their own unique and distinctive look.
These modular panels come in various sizes with common dimensions of 2’ x 1’ and 4’ x 1’. They are fastened to the roof deck with a concealed clip system or a nailing flange formed into the top of the shingle. Shake and shingle facsimile profiles are installed on the roof in a staggered pattern to avoid vertical line repetition.and have a higher profile than the single system. The Single system is less dimensional to mimic the shape and texture of a shingled roofing system. texture. Many times, this added dimension to the shingle allows it to be installed directly over previous roof layers, even some thin wood shingles. Metal shakes are usually manufactured from 26 or 28 gauge steel, or .019” or .024” thick aluminum. Steel metal shakes are commonly coated with a post-forming stone coat or Kynar powder coat.
Pre Formed Metal Roofing Sheets
Sheet Metal Roofing Systems are available in many different profiles, all going by different names. “5V” Crimp, “R” Panel, corrugated roofing, face-fastened panels, through-fastened panels, or screw down panels are some of the synonyms for the style of metal roofing that is encompassed under the umbrella term “sheet.” Metal sheet roofing is manufactured primarily from galvalume or galvanized steel in thicknesses that vary between 24 and 30 gauge. The defining characteristic of all sheet roofing is large panels (or sheets) of varying widths and lengths that overlap and have exposed fasteners. The fasteners are driven through the overlapping portions of the panels, as well as in other strategic locations and into the roof decking, purlin, or spaced sheathing below. A neoprene washer is located beneath the head of the fastener to ensure water tightness.
One common type of sheet roofing is the 5V Crimp pattern. It has five small V crimps per panel. Other corrugated patterns of sheet roofing give a more “wavy” look. The look of any of these products is sometimes construed as an agricultural or rural look. Sheet roofing can also give a historical look, particularly if used unpainted.

Metal Roofing panel roof system description
There is only one category of Metal Roofing systems used in low-slope applications — structural metal panel. Structural metal panel roof systems can be used for low slope roofs because of their hydrostatic, or water barrier, characteristics. It is important to note structural metal panel roof systems can be used for steep slope roof assemblies also. Most structural metal panel roof systems are designed to resist the passage of water at laps and other joints, as the sealant or anti capillary designs can be used at the seams. Structural metal panel roof systems possess strength characteristics that allow them to span supporting members.
Structural metal panel roof systems are installed over a large variety of substrates. There are two general categories of substrates: one is continuous or closely spaced decking that provides solid support for the metal roof panel, and the other is composed of spaced structural supports (such as purlins) where the metal panels must span between supports. Most structural metal panels are used over spaced structural supports without being supported by a solid roof deck.
Underlayment (or “felt paper” as it is frequently called) is installed over the roof deck before the application of a metal panel roof system. An underlayment performs two primary functions: it provides temporary weather protection until the metal panel roof is installed, and it provides a secondary weatherproofing barrier if moisture infiltrates the metal roof panels. Underlayments typically are not used with structural metal panel roof systems when intermittent supports are used to carry the roof systems.
Vapor retarders, insulation, and ventilation
Condensation should be expected to develop on the undersides of metal roof panels. Careful consideration should be paid to vapor retarder, insulation and ventilation issues. Because every building is in some way unique, building owners and designers may need to consult moisture-control specialists.
