Cost Benefits of a Standing Seam Metal Roof
Standing seam metal roofing is typically not the least expensive roofing system to install, but when one considers the periodic maintenance, repairs, and shorter life expectancy of traditional flat roofs, the costs advantages of standing seam metal roofs are obvious.
A-Lert Roofing Systems further improves on these cost advantages with its jobsite manufacturing process. Onsite roll forming reduces the investment in materials by cutting out middlemen and the related freight costs associated with buying traditional panels. It also allows for a much greater level of quality and control as the panels can be cut to the exact length and fit together without horizontal lap joints.
