Understanding the Superiority of Standing Seam Roofing with Gordy Roofing

Standing Seam Roofing Professionals

What is Standing Seam Roofing?

Standing seam roofing is a type of metal roofing characterized by vertical panels, each with two seams that stand vertically. These seams are crimped together, creating a tight seal that prevents water and debris from penetrating your roof. With standing seam roofing, you get a mix of durability, functionality, and sleek aesthetics.

Key Features of Standing Seam Roofing

Standing seam roofing is distinguishable by its unique features, which include:

  1. Seam Fasteners: These raised structures run vertically along the roof. They can reach up to 1.5 inches, providing a robust, tight lock that prevents roof leakage.
  2. Long, Thin Panels: Each metal panel runs the roof length from the ridge to the eaves. This design feature significantly reduces the number of seams on the roof, decreasing the chances of water seepage.
  3. Hidden Fasteners: Unlike traditional metal roofing, standing seam roofs hide their fasteners, offering a clean, uniform, and sleek look.

Benefits of Standing Seam Roofing

Durability and Longevity

Standing seam roofs are known for enduring harsh weather conditions, from blazing Texas heat to severe storms. Their long lifespan, often exceeding 40 years, makes them a cost-effective choice.

Energy Efficiency

The reflective properties of metal significantly reduce solar heat gain, leading to lower cooling costs during hot summer months. Gordy Roofing can enhance this efficiency by choosing a light-colored metal reflecting more sunlight.


A standing seam metal roof brings your home a modern, sleek, and elegant look. With various colors and finishes available, Gordy Roofing can help customize your roof to complement your home’s exterior perfectly.

Low Maintenance

Once installed, standing seam roofing requires minimal maintenance. The high-quality materials and expert installation by Gordy Roofing ensure your roof remains reliable and functional year after year.

Standing Seam Roofing Varieties

Gordy Roofing offers a wide variety of standing seam roofing types that you can choose from to find a match for your unique needs and preferences.

Mechanically Seamed

A mechanically seamed standing seam roof is a fantastic option when low-slope roofing is required. The panels’ seams are mechanically crimped together using a specialized machine, ensuring a watertight seal. This method adds an extra layer of protection against rain and snow.

Snap Lock

Snap-lock standing seam systems have been designed with concealed fasteners that seamlessly snap together, hence the name. This style is popular due to its straightforward installation process and strong resistance to wind uplift.

Nail Flange/ Fastened Flange

Nail flange standing seam roofs are lightweight and more economical due to their installation process. The panels are installed and fastened directly through the panel onto the roof deck, speeding up the installation process and reducing costs.

The Installation Process by Gordy Roofing

The professionals at Gordy Roofing follow a meticulous process when installing your standing seam metal roof.

1. Assessment and Measurement

We start by examining your roof’s current structure and determining the quantity and dimensions of the metal panels needed. We also inspect your roof deck for any necessary repairs.

2. Installation of Underlayment

Before the metal panels are installed, we lay a specialized underlayment to create a barrier against water and ice, providing additional protection for your roof.

3. Installing the Metal Panels

Each panel is measured and cut to run the length of your roof from the ridge to the eaves. They are installed side by side, with each panel securely fastened and seamed to the next.

4. Finishing Touches

Our expert roofers will install ridge caps where the panels meet at the top of your roof, creating a secure and visually pleasing finish.
