Standing Seam Metal Roof

April 19, 2011. By lowdesign. 2 comment(s).

Things have been moving so fast the last couple of weeks that we haven't been able to keep up the blog! The standing seam roof is almost done. Nick Perez and his crew have been doing a great job thus far creating a tight, cleanly detailed roof.

The metal supplier actually brings out coils of metal (in our case galvalume) and roll out the panels on site to spec and length.

You need plenty of parking space to do this.

Then the panels are put into place one by one. The seams are clamped and then rolled with a machine to insure a tight fit.

what's the name of the machine?

The seaming machine is actually just called a "seamer." You can check out examples here:
