Standing Seam Metal Roofing
Standing seam metal roofing is a concealed fastener roofing system. Because of its energy efficiency, durability, and beautiful looks, standing seam is quickly becoming the metal roof of choice for many home and business owners. A standing seam metal roof is made up of vertical metal panels, each with two seams that stand up vertically. These seams are either crimped together using a special tool and clips or may come with a snap-lock design. This keeps moisture and water from collecting on the surface of the roof and leaking in.
Standing seam roofing panels come in a 12” or 16” coverage width and can be comprised or 24 or 26 gauge steel. They are available in galvalume as well as many different colors.
Because of their durability, metal roofs offer a significant cost savings over time. They require little to no maintenance, and stand up to weather conditions with ease. Metal roofing is energy efficient, hail and fire resistant, and can even save you money on insurance premiums due to their Class 4 rating.

Aluminum roofing has benefits that make it a popular choice for homeowners. They come in a variety of styles but none more popular than aluminum shake. Aluminum shake is made to look like hand-split cedar. Aluminum roofing has proven to be very energy efficient and provide great protection against leaks. Aluminum is very lightweight and fire-resistant as well.
However, aluminum roofing has a downside. Structurally it will last for a long time, but because it is such a lightweight material it is cosmetically damaged by even the smallest hail. This has led to a group of roofing companies that try to sell you a “LIFETIME” energy efficient roof every few years. Insurance companies are catching on to this practice and soon all of them will likely require a “cosmetic waiver” on all aluminum roofs. Even though it may not leak, many homeowners will be left with a damaged looking roof that their insurance company may not pay for again.
Old Pro Roofing can help you get your insurance company to pay for your aluminum shake roof and replace with another roofing material such as stone coated steel, concrete, or slate if you desire. Although we can expertly install any aluminum shake roof, we normally don’t recommend the product in the Dallas-Fort Worth roofing market. Give us a call soon while insurance companies are still paying for aluminum roofs in DFW and we can show you what options may be available for your home.

Metal Roofing Basics
Old Pro Roofing is one of the few roofing contractors Fort Worth with the knowledge and skills you want in your metal roofing professional. This includes tough and strong standing seam metal roof style.
Standing seam metal roofs are becoming more and more popular for residential homes, even though historically they are used for more commercial properties. Standing seam metal roofs are extremely durable and provide much needed protection, but still look different and make your home stand out.
“Standing seam” means a vertical panel formation that is side by side and uses “invisible” fasteners, in metal roofing terms. The overlapping panel provides the connecting point between the seams on the sides of the panels.
Standing seam metal roofs are excellent for winter because they stay light weight from easily shedding the snow and ice. This helps the ventilation of the roof because it prevents ice dams.
Old Pro Roofing uses steel, aluminum, or copper standing seam metal roofs. We also offer warranties on all installations, including water tightness warranty and manufacturer’s warranty on the panels and coatings.
Your home will be considered the fanciest on the block with your metal roof. In addition, the metal roof provides security, protection, and less maintenance.
