Standing Seam Factory-Painted Kynar Steel

This page shows a selection of pictures of a job in which a standing seam painted steel roof was installed utilizing the snap-lock roll-formed panel system. This method starts with a style "T" drip edge at the bottom, over which the panels are folded and crimped (to prevent wind lift). The panels are installed either left-to-right, or right-to-left. Rakes, walls, hips, and ridges are finished with custom manufactured flashings and closures designed specifically for each type of area.

The main portion of this roof was prepared prior to the installation of the metal roof by the application of ice and water shield underlayment. Normally, 30# roof felt is the underlayment of choice, but ice and water shield provides superior protection against moisture infiltration at a very reasonable cost.

The two windows on the wall behind the chimney are built below the plane of the roof. The resultant slope was low enough to be a potential leakage concern. An EPDM rubber roof membrane was installed in these two areas prior to the installation of the metal roof. For this area, it was decided that a one-piece metal window pan was more appropriate than using individual panels.
