When it comes to standing seam metal roofs, there are tons of benefits to be seen, but a lot of people shy away and limit themselves because of their roof types.
Many homeowners with Mansard type roofs have a couple of concerns when choosing a new roof for their home. It needs to prevent leaks, especially on the flatter portion of the roof and it needs to be good with snow management.
Let’s talk about some ways a standing seam metal roof can prevent leaks for your Mansard Roof.
Ways Our Standing Seam Metal Roofs Prevent Leaks
One of the main areas of focus is the flatter portion of the Mansard Roof. This is a prime spot for snow and water to build up, cause some damage, and find a way into the home and cause leaks. This coupled with the areas that join the two roof pitches, there are plenty of vulnerable points.
When building a custom standing seam roof, you’re also creating a new water management system. These roofs are made with a plan of where the water will go and what will happen to snow that builds up. With the help of good flashing, those little nooks and crannies will also be protected (areas around your chimney, windows, etc.).
Standing seam metal roofs are tailored for the home they are being installed on, making them the perfect fit each time. For a completely free estimate on a standing seam metal roof, give our installers a call today.
