Metal roofing is done not just to complete a structure but also to make it durable and resilient against many
factors including, harsh environmental conditions, dust and much more. A concealed fixed roof system,
featuring vertical ribs with a flat space or pan in between is what composes a standing seam metal roofing
system. Metal roofing is made primarily of steel or aluminum. At inception, both are produced as giant rolls
in mills. Both sides of the sheet have a metallic coating which acts as a protective barrier against rust.
Designated by decimal thickness, aluminum residential roofing ranges from 0.7 to 1 mm thickness.
While steel is susceptible to seawater damage overtime, aluminum is highly resistant to corrosion caused
by seawater, making it an ideal choice of material for a standing seam roof system. It is because of this
reason that aluminum roofing can run up to 20 per cent higher in price, depending upon the exact chosen
product. Most roofing system materials perform the same but aluminum provides a certain finish warranty,
especially if used around coastal areas. Exposure testing has proven that when zinc is combined with
aluminium to form Galvalume, it becomes three times more effective in preventing rust than galvanized
Aluminium beats out the conventional roofing materials in many ways. The first criteria being weight.
Aluminium is extremely lightweight and has the highest strength-to-weight ratio among the other
commonly used roofing materials.
Aluminium’s lightness and thinness also allow it to store very little heat and cool down quickly once it stops
receiving direct sunlight. Its malleability and longevity are bonuses which make it practical and sustainable
to be used in the long run.
Having a high fire-resistant rating, aluminium metal roofs are deemed non-combustible.
Amalgamating aluminium in the standing seam roof system has added advantages since standing seam
metal roofing is the most durable type of roofing and can last for around 30 years without any
maintenance. For structures with several layersof
roofing, the aluminium standing seam roof system is optimal since it can be installed easily and is made up
of vertical panels with two seams per panel that stands vertically. Maximizing the building’s capability for
using natural sunlight, modern aluminium alloys can also support the weight of heavy glass spans.
Since aluminium standing seam roof system is an expensive installation, it is imperative to purchase quality
material from a renowned and trustable standing seam roof supplier like Kingspan Jindal and Maxroof, one
who specializes in metal roofing. Maxroof has established itself through vast experience as one of the
topmost solution providers in Metal Building Systems, by having their manufacturing facility for an extensive
