Low Slope, Standing Seam Commercial Roof
A low slope standing seam roof is a popular choice for commercial, institutional, and industrial establishments like warehouses, schools, office buildings, and retail centers. Usually, roofs like this slopes 3 inches per foot or less.
However, low slope roofing may cause a number of problems caused by leaks. This happens when moisture does not run off the roof fast enough; therefore causing leaks inside the establishment. To avoid this problem, owners of commercial establishments usually turn to rubber roofing, which has a short life span and eventually leaks anyway.
Instead of turning to rubber roofs, commercial establishments can make use of a standing seam design to assure proper draining of rain water and snow, to avoid ponding, and to eliminate leaks. Low slope standing seam metal roofs are also less prone to degradation experienced by organic materials, allowing this type of roofing to resist the elements. As a result, low slope standing seam roofs are more durable, but offer low maintenance costs to commercial building owners.
Since this type of roofing system is durable and very reliable, many manufacturers offer warranties as long as twenty to forty years, which is seventeen years longer than built-up roofs and twenty years longer than single-ply systems.
If you are looking for a roof for your commercial establishment that is durable with a very low maintenance cost, then a low standing seam roof is a good option to choose. All you need is a professional roofer to install it, maintain it, and repair it when needed.
