You might have come across the term “seamless metal roof”. Some people even go as far as contrasting seamless metal roof vs standing seam. Today we will discover what stands behind these systems.
You will be surprised but there is no comparing going on here. Both terms mean one and the same thing – type of joints used in securing metal sheets during rooftop installation. The most remarkable thing about it is that the interlocked joints are invisible. That is why there is the word “seamless” in the name of the seam. Secondly, it is called “standing” because the metal panels run up vertically.
Another interesting thing about seamless roof system is that such roofs do not necessarily require gutters, because system is resistant to leakage and dentures.
