HILL COUNTRY STANDING SEAM METAL PANELS
Hill Country Standing Seam Metal Roofing is one of the few roofing materials that enhance the appearance of a wide variety of architectural styles. From elegant formal homes to rustic hunting lodges to light commercial buildings, Standing Seam Metal Roofs are the designers’ choice of two-thirds of the Texas Society of Architects Award Winning structures for the last five years.
Standing Seam Metal Roofs have been in use for over 1,000 years. There are many structures in Texas with Standing Seam Metal Roofs that have lasted 130 years or more. There is no other material that offers similar durability. Standing Seam Metal Roofs won’t shrink, rot, crack or deteriorate like petroleum or wood products. Metal is naturally fire proof and is resistant to wind and hail damage. It is light weight compared to other premium materials.
The Hill Country difference is that the roofs are installed using screws and concealed cleats. There are no unsightly fastener heads left exposed or fastener gaskets to deteriorate or leak. Unlike corrugated or panelized systems, whose sheets simply overlap, Standing Seam Metal Roof panels are folded and locked together to form a water tight seal. No vinyl gaskets, sealant tapes or caulks are used in our seams. And unlike screw down style panels, the concealed cleat of our system can accommodate expansion and contraction.
Hill Country Standing Seam Metal Roofs come in a wide selection of materials such as copper, lead coated copper, galvanized steel, aluminized steel, aluminum, terne metal, stainless steel or prefinished 24 gauge galvanized steel. Most clients choose 24 gauge prefinished steel to take advantage of the many exciting Kynar 500 colors available. Kynar 500 is the most durable finish product available today, with a field proven life expectancy of 20 years.
Although Standing Seam Metal costs a little more initially, your investment in the security of metal will repay you with many more years of maintenance free service over conventional roofing materials. If reroofing is ever needed in the future, your metal roof is fully recyclable and will not require expensive disposal fees.
