Standing Seam Metal is very different from any other type of roofing material. With Shingles or Tile, many times all the salesman has to do is take the correct measurements, and generally, the material order and install can be successful. With a Standing Seam Metal Roof, a very methodical approach to each measurement, and the complete overall design needs careful planning. ONLY A TRUE JOURNEYMAN ROOFER WITH MANY YEARS OF ROOFING EXPERIENCE should have a hand in the design of your new Standing Seam Metal Roof. Most roofing companies hire salesmen that are the “middle man” for the project. Your salesman may have had previous experience in selling concrete, home selling, or even car salesmanship, or worse, a storm chaser.

5. The underlayment of a metal roof is extremely important because during installation, the underlayment is penetrated every 6-12 inches vertically, and 9 – 16 inches horizontally. We suggest using a modified or self-healing underlayment to go with your new metal roof. This will add to your assurance for a completely watertight seal. However, it is also worth mentioning that water should not penetrate under the metal to begin with.
