From great looks to durability, metal roofs are an excellent choice for homeowners and businesses. Zoller Roofing is an expert metal roof contractor, handling all facets of metal roof installation and metal roof repair in Sarasota, Lakewood Ranch, Venice and Bradenton.
A Standing Seam Metal Roof is considered a higher end metal roof than a 5-V because its fasteners are hidden, providing a cleaner, more streamlined look. The metal panels lock into place with clips that allow for thermal expansion and contraction. Standing seam roofs are available in 24 and 26 gauge metal. 26 gauge metal is thinner and striated. 24 gauge metal is thicker and is flat.
The hidden seams on a Standing Seam metal roof require more labor during installation than a 5-V metal roof, which increases the cost but once installed, they provide seamless protection from ridge to eve.
Standing seam metal panels get their name because the seams stand above the roof, meaning moisture and debris seldom get into the seams to cause damage. Warranties on material and installation are often more than 30 years.
Zoller Roofing installs gorgeous metal roofs that will protect your home or business for years to come. Though people love the look of a metal roof, this material has multiple other important benefits. Metal Roofs are durable, require very little upkeep, and last for decades.

A Roof That Lasts Decades
Metal roofs easily last for decades without any major changes or issues, handling winds up to 150-mph, and even 180 mph with no problem. In contrast, as shingles age, they deteriorate, becoming brittle. These older, dried out shingles are easily blown off a roof, sometimes in gusts as mild as 40-mph. Metal roofing systems have wind resistance and uplift resistance that is above the new building code requirement.
Metal Roofing Requires Minimal Upkeep
Ensuring your metal roof is free from debris and a once-yearly inspection for minor maintenance items like cleaning and paint touch ups are typically all that is needed to keep your roof in shape. Shingle or tile roofs require regular maintenance to replace broken or deteriorating shingles or tiles, as well as moss and algae removal.
A Metal Roof is Environmentally Friendly
A steel metal roof is made of about 28% recycled material and is completely recyclable at the end of its lifespan. This makes metal roofing a green building material. According to the National Association of Homebuilders Research Center, 20 billion pounds of asphalt shingles are dumped into U.S. landfills every year. If you loaded those shingles into tractor trailers, then lined them up end-to-end, they would make a line from New York City to Los Angeles, back to New York City again, then on to Chicago, that's a lot of wasted asphalt.
