Standing-seam snaplock cladding is a lightweight product used on commercial and residential roofs and exterior walls. It provides a solid roof and wall surface that looks great and will keep your building protected. Snaplock comes in a range of colours and metal types.
Xtreme Roofing offers metal roofing in Vancouver. If you’re looking for a robust, lightweight architectural cladding system, they recommend snaplock roofing.
What is standing-seam snaplock roofing?
The term standing-seam comes from the profile of the metal roof. It consists of continuous coils of sheet metal that have a raised vertical seam where each section means. Each section runs continuously from the roof ridge right down to the eave, with the ‘standing’ vertical seams joining them. The seams on this type of metal roof join together using either a mechanical lock or snaplock method.
Snaplock metal roofing works so that the seam of each panel snaps over the seam of the metal panel beside it. It locks into place perfectly to create a watertight seal but still allows a little thermal movement. This bit of wiggle room puts less pressure on the metal roofing system in climates with sudden temperature changes.
What are the benefits of standing-seam snaplock roofing?
Like other metal roofing in Vancouver, standing-seam snaplock is durable, long-lasting, and hassle-free. It will likely be the last roof you ever pay for, lasting 50 years or more. It will stand up to strong winds, pouring rain, snow, hail, sleet, and even fallen debris like tree branches. The seams conceal the fasteners, giving you a watertight and no-maintenance roofing system.
Roofers in Vancouver roll the metal on-site and cut to the specific length of your roof. It’s easy to install compared to other roofing products, which can save a little on labour. Plus, metal roofing is recyclable and reflects the sun, helping to keep your home cooler in the summer.
Snaplock roofing and cladding come in a wide range of colours. So whether you’re looking for earthy tones, neutral shades, or a bright colour, you’ll find something to suit your home and style. Find inspiration with these metal roofing colours and styles.
