Horch Roofing custom fabricates our own standing seam metal roofing panels custom bent on location for the best fit and performance.

For several reasons standing-seam metal roofing is becoming increasingly popular in Maine. The term standing-seam describes the upturned edge of one metal panel that connects it to adjacent sections, creating distinctive vertical lines creating a distinct and trendy look. 

Metal roofing in Maine is a growing option with many benefits. Metal roofing is durable, fire retardant and almost maintenance free. Metal roofing is also very energy efficient due to its reflectivity which can reflect the sun’s rays and help reduce the transfer of heat into the attic space beneath the roof deck.

Environmental Benefits

Metal roofing is most often made from recycled material and is again recyclable once removed. Due to the lightweight nature of standing-seam metal roofing, it can at times be installed over existing shingled roofs, which could eliminate the need for labor intensive disposal of the previously installed material.  According to the American Iron and Steel Institute, steel is considered the best material for green buildings because it reduces the use and emittance of chemical substances.

Metal roofing is Low Maintenance

Another advantage of installing a metal roof is that it will not crack, curl, split, rot or lose impact resistance with age, and it is known to last for over 50-60 years. Therefore, this makes the maintenance expenses and upkeep for a metal roof very minimal.

Metal Roofs Have Less Ice Dam Issues

Ice damming can be a chronic problem which occurs here in the Northeast. Our standing-seam metal roofs can shed snow and ice more easily to help decrease the occurrences of ice dams.
