STANDING SEAM METAL ROOFING
When you want a bold look, then a standing seam metal roof, also called a sheet metal roof, is a great choice.
These roofs are made of long panels of galvanized steel or aluminum, fastened together along the sides to create a “seam” that stands up from the rest of the roof. They come in a variety of finishes and colors, and the bold vertical lines create a sleek and elegant look for your home. Plus, steel panels are completely recyclable, so you can be confident that your roofing choice won’t contribute to landfill waste.
How Standing Seam Roofing Works
At Designer Roofing we manufacture our own high quality standing seam z-panels on-site from Galvalume steel. This means we can provide custom-tailored solutions to meet the unique needs of our clients, create minimal waste, and ensure a perfect fit. Our steel panels have been tested by Underwriter Laboratories and are certified as Class 4 hail resistant, the industry’s highest rating.
Galvalume is the premium material for standing seam roofs. It’s made from a 55% to 45% ratio of aluminum to zinc alloy, with a small amount of silicon to ensure durable and even adhesion. The result is durable and naturally resistant to corrosion.
We source our high quality Galvalume steel from two suppliers, McElroy Metal and Berridge, which both offer a range of colors to suit any home. We receive the Galvalume steel in coils that we then turn into custom fit z-panels using our portable roll form machine.

Standing Seam Metal Roof Colors
Stone coated steel roofing is an incredibly popular choice because of the wide range of styles and colors to choose from. These metal roof shingles can mimic almost any natural roofing material, including slate, wood shake, clay tile, or traditional asphalt composition. No matter what the architectural style of the house, there will be a stone coated steel option that enhances your home’s beauty.
Berridge Manufacturing Company offers durable Galvalume coil material. All Berridge applied colors have premium fluoropolymer coatings produced with full strength Kynar 500 or Hylar 5000 resin. This coating makes the steel extremely durable due to the outstanding weatherability and resistance to ultraviolet radiation of the resin. In addition, the color finishes carry a 20-year guarantee against cracking, peeling and fading.
McElroy Metals is another supplier of premium Galvalume coated steel painted with Kynar 500 PVDF resin-based paint. This type of paint has long-life color retention, is resistant to fading, can withstand extreme weathering and is mildew resistant.
