Standing seam metal roofing is an interlocking metal roof system where panels are fitted together during installation without the use of exposed fasteners, such as screws or nails. Instead, the panels of a standing seam metal roof fit together almost like the pieces of a puzzle, and the points where they interconnect are concealed. This gives the roof a more cohesive appearance, but more importantly it helps to improve the water resistance of these roofing systems, as the holes created by screws or other fasteners are hidden from the elements.
Metal roofing offers unique benefits to commercial building owners, and standing seam metal roofs are among the most reliable metal roofing systems available. Here are some of the major benefits of this style of roof:
Metal is among the most durable of all commonly used roofing materials. Metal roofing stands up effectively against wind, rain, hail, fire damage, and much more.
When regularly maintained following expert installation, a standing seam or other metal roof has a service life that beats nearly every other roofing material: up to 40–70 years or longer.
Metal roofs are readily available in lighter colors that reflect heat, and they provide excellent installation and ventilation. Metal is also readily recycled at the end of its service life.
In addition to resisting hail and storm damage, standing seam roofing systems also provide better protection against moisture intrusion compared to other commercial and metal roofs.
At Dolan Roofing, we’ve been expertly installing standing seam and other metal roofing systems for years. We’ve seen firsthand how effective these roofs are in the heat and storms common to our service area, and we highly recommend metal roofing for business owners looking to make a long-term investment in their commercial property.

As with many other types of roofs, standing seam metal roofs use a fastener (typically screws) to attach the full system to the roof. However, these screws are hidden beneath the interlocking seams (“standing” seams) of the roofing panels.
Standing seam roofs use an underlayment, typically made from an enhanced felt material or a synthetic material to provide protection against moisture and insulation for the building.
