Standing Seam Metal Roof Specialists Serving Maryland

standing seam metal roof company Maryland

Standing seam metal roofing is made from interlocking panels. This interlocking system makes it the strongest, most reliable roofing system on the market today. It is completely waterproof and comes in a variety of colors so you can customize it however you want.

Like other metal roofing services Certified Inc. Roofing offers, standing seam helps regulate the temperature in your home because it reflects the sun and can save you money on your heating and cooling bills. You may also enjoy better insurance rates because of the reliability of your new roof.

Certified Inc. Roofing also specializes in other metal roof types from steel, copper, aluminum to corrugated roofs.

What is Standing Seam Metal Roofing?

Standing seam metal roofing is exactly what it sounds like. Because of the interlocking panels, the seams stand up higher than the roof itself. It’s an interesting aesthetic feature that makes standing seam metal roofs more visually appealing than some other types of metal roofs.

Design-like customizations would interfere with the stability of the seams, but this type of roofing is still highly customizable allowing you to choose from a wide range of colors, lengths, widths, thicknesses, and seam types.

Types of Standing Seam Metal Roofing

Standing seam metal roofing comes in a variety of seam types. Each one interlocks a little bit differently, and they all provide different types of protection. Depending on the environment, you can choose specific seam types to suit your needs.

Snap-Lock

Snap-lock roofing systems have special edges that snap together with a male leg and a female leg. It doesn’t require the standing seam metal roof company to hand or mechanically fasten because they are secured by a simple click in place. Since this requires less labor, it results in lower costs. Snap-lock roofing can be installed in any environment as long as it is installed according to manufacturer specifications.

Mechanical Lock

Mechanical lock roofing systems also have edges that line up together. Once lined up, they require the use of a mechanical seamer to bend and secure them in place. They come in single lock and double lock profiles for better performance and insulation in colder weather.

Batten Panel

Batten panel roofing systems have edges that line up together and are secured by a metal cap to create the seam. Depending on the type of cap, some are more secure than others. The more secure the cap, the better the roofing system will perform in inclement weather environments.

Advantages of Standing Seam Metal Roofing

The interlocking panels of a standing seam metal roof ensure that no fasteners are exposed to the elements where they can deteriorate over time. All metal roofing systems are durable, but the fasteners sometimes must be replaced when they wear out. With a standing seam metal roof, this doesn’t happen because there are no exposed fasteners.

A standing seam metal roof is also unique and different from other metal roofing systems in that the panels aren’t pinned down, so they can expand and contract with the weather, allowing for more freedom of movement and less breakage.

As with all metal roofing systems, standing seam metal roofing is also durable, customizable, long- lasting, eco-friendly, and energy efficient. These are all the things we’ve come to love about the increased installation of metal roofing systems.

Standing Seam Metal Roof Maintenance

Other metal roofing systems require the use of fasteners, which means that while they require little maintenance, you still have to check for loose or damaged fasteners and replace them. However, a standing seam metal roof doesn’t have fasteners that go through the metal, so you don’t need to perform this type of maintenance.

Upkeep is always essential, but a standing seam metal roof requires much less of it. Inspecting for low hanging branches, other metal, or debris and clearing it off is all you should have to do.

Standing Seam Metal Roof Cost

Unfortunately, standing seam metal roofing comes at a cost. It’s one of the most expensive types of metal roofing because of the prefabrication process. It requires specific rolling techniques to create the edges, and few company have expertise in standing seam metal roof installation.

The installation process is labor intensive, which also adds to the cost. However, when contracting with a reliable standing seam metal roofing company, you’ll reap the benefits of professional installation with a great warranty and a long-lasting, durable roof.

    By the time I connected with Jay from Certified, I had already been through a few roofing companies. Jay was not only friendly, but very patient with a first time homeowner such as myself. Certified had by far the best warranty to offer us, and was willing and eager to work with our insurance in order to cover it. We had to delay a few times due to weather (can't be helped!), but the office was always very communicative. The roof took 1.5 days to complete, and the end result was amazing. We had quite the extensive replacement job, and these guys were top notch. They replaced it, and fixed errors from the previous roof installation along the way. A couple days after our install was complete, a huge rain/wind storm rolled in. Not only did we not hear the rain, but none of it got in, much to our relief! Thanks, Jay and the whole team at Certified!

    Steve, the owner, of Certified Roofing gave us a reasonable estimate to replace our roof. Our house is 3 stories in the back and one story in the front with 2 skylights and a change in roof line in the front. There is a front door overhang that is also roofed--so not an easy installation. The choices of shingles was excellent.The crew arrived on time, was very professional, and did excellent work. They were led by Javier who was exceptional. They cleaned up beautifully. When a small problem occurred, the repair was made and Steve came out. This was last October. This week, 5 months later, we asked Steve if they could come out to reinstall a gutter guard that blew loose. They offered to do the job at no cost to us. We recommend them without hesitation. They care about their work and offer a great value for roofing.

    Great work and great service. Caught Jay giving an estimate to a neighbor and snagged his information.Jay initially walked around the house to get a general feel for the roof and scheduled a formal estimate meeting a few days later. Jay was incredibly thorough and took down all the needed information. Afterwards he sat us down to explain the exact process, the materials of construction they would use, why they chose to use them, and their function for the roof. As new homeowners, and knowing our roof was incredibly rough shape and well past its lifespan, we greatly appreciated this. Contracts were signed that week and the work was scheduled less than a week out. Day 0 was material delivery, Day 1 was the complete roof installation, Day 2 were new gutters. Everything looked incredible and made the house look brand new. Very happy with Certified Inc. and plan to use them for any new work in the future.

    I highly recommend Certified Inc. Roofing. Steve personally came to my home to inspect the roof with me and explained to me how they would install the new roof. Easy to select roof color and easy to get quote for replacement. Day of, crew arrived on time and worked steady & hard all day. Finished and cleaned up everything all in one day. The crew were nice, polite and professional. They delivered on everything promised and exceeded our expectations! Definitely highly recommended them!!!

    I had a new house roof with new gutters and then later needed repairs and new gutters on 2 horse barns , plus leaf guards on the house one side. Quotes were similar to another company but overall a better deal.Steve is excellent to deal with; there were a some problems but they were rectified very quickly, and he was very helpful in the process. The crews were very hardworking , and wasted little time even when extra supplies were needed as efficiently arranged for them so saving a delay.Delighted with the outcome, no worry about rain, hail , snow or winds on the buildings.

    Very pleased with the work of Certified Inc. I recently acquired a historic 1908 home and had all windows replaced. They look great, inside and out and flow seamlessly with the historic home. Craftsmanship is on point. I only had one issue with a simple sill that was not sloped properly, but these things happen in an old home, and Certified fixed it. Would recommend!

    We replaced a 18 year old cedar shake roof with asphalt shingles. Extremely happy the way in which Certified managed the job. From promptly providing an estimate to installation the project was completed within 2 weeks ! The installation took 2 days. The crew did a great job with installation and clean up. I chose Certified as they provided with CertainTeed material and their pricing was within our budget. Will highly recommend Certified, Inc .

    Steve and Jay came out the day after we called to do the inspection and give us a quote. Within days of us letting them know that our homeowners association approved our application to replace the roof and gutters, they had us on the schedule for installation. Roof took one day and the gutters done a day later. Top quality materials and workmanship all around. The next door neighbors also remarked about how efficient the installers were and how they didn't cause any disruption in the neighborhood. They also did a fantastic job cleaning up; no loose nails or other materials left behind. A well done job all around.

    My experience with Certified was nothing but positive. I had a severe roof leak and Certified was one of many companies to provide quotes. Jay came out for my estimate and walked me through everything. He even gave me some advice and help with making temporary fixes for an upcoming storm. After going through all my quotes, Certified was the clear winner. They scheduled my installation and got everything done exactly when they said they would. It looks great and I am super happy.

    We are in love with our new roof. The color was spot on and the gutters are amazing! My husband and I are thrilled to not have to deal with cleaning gutters and we are hoping to see improvement with our attic venting when the season changes. (Currently it's too hot to even think about going in the attic.) Removal and installation of the roof took less than 8 hours and the gutters were installed 2 days later. Juan was amazing with being a stickler for the details. He was gracious enough to come back out and fix a slight issue within a very reasonable amount of time. Now our house is perfect. Thank you so much!
