Standing Seam Metal Roofing Benefits

Benefits include beautiful style, fire resistance, energy efficiency, and a proven performance expectation of 50+ years.


It is a fact that residential standing seam metal roofing is one of the fastest growing segments of home improvement. The reason is clear. The benefits offered by today’s standing seam metal roofs allow homeowners to upgrade their homes with products of lasting value. While composition roofs quickly diminish in value as they age, standing seam metal roofs provide the following long-lasting benefits:

  • Beautiful styles to match any home or neighborhood and approved by most homeowners associations
  • Proven lifetime performance expectation of 50+ years
  • Energy efficiency achieved by keeping homes cooler (think about Texas summers)
  • Interlocking panels for maximum wind resistance
  • Low weight to help preserve structural integrity and life
  • Highly fire resistant

Standing Seam Systems by McElroy Metal

Standing seam systems are used for a wide range of applications and projects. These systems feature interlocking seams that connect panels, giving the roof a distinct, and attractive, appearance. Furthermore, standing seam systems are manufactured from high-end steel or aluminum offering years of low-maintenance service life. Our standing seam systems include:

  • 138T & 238T – These are symmetrical standing seam systems that are ideal for new or retrofit applications. McElroy Metal offers patented 138T and 238T recover systems that are designed to retrofit over existing metal or shingle roofs.
  • Instaloc – Offers a snap-together standing seam system that can be used with solid decking. It features a low-profile seam that makes Instaloc a wonderful choice for light commercial and residential applications.
  • MasterLok-90/MasterLok-FS – Trapezoidal systems designed for simple sloped roofs without dormers, hips or valleys.
  • Maxima – These vertical leg standing seam systems are available in a wide variety of options that enable customers to select a Maxima panel to match individual style and performance needs.
  • Medallion I/Medallion II – feature separate batten caps that are installed over adjoining roofing panels.
  • Medallion-Lok – Boasts a narrow, 1.75″-tall standing seam, giving the seam a clean, modern look and feel.
  • Meridian – Requires no clips and features a snap-together standing seam roof panel that is simple to install.
  • Mirage/Mirage II – Are concealed fastener roofing panels and are commonly used in the mini-storage industry.

McElroy Metal standing seam systems are durable and weathertight, making them ideal for most any application.
