Concealed fastener metal roofing is a great option for residential and commercial applications, and, like any material, has a variety of benefits associated with it.
Concealed fastener metal roofing uses interlocking panels that are fastened at the seams. These seams are covered by the next panel, thus hiding them from view once the roof is complete. They typically use clips or fasteners to adhere to the roof decking. A common consideration when comparing an exposed fastener metal roof vs standing seam is the cost, as concealed standing seams are more expensive, but offer a sleek, uncluttered look that could be more desirable for certain applications. They are often a thicker gauge, too, which can add to the cost but make for a more durable roofing solution.
It depends on the application. Cost is usually the most compelling factor and typically dictates which way to go. Residential and some commercial buildings may gain increased curb appeal and aesthetic value by going with a concealed fastener roof or standing seam. Concealed fastener metal panels provide unparalleled durability and requires little to no maintenance throughout their service life. While traditional shingle roofs may last 15-20 years under the right circumstances, a metal roof can last 30-50 years or more.
