Commercial Metal Roofing Installation

Rio Roofing, Inc. specializes in standing seam metal roofing. Standing seam metal roofing is one of the most durable roof types on the market, lasting up to 50 years if well maintained. Our professional roofers have plenty of experience with installing metal roofs and can get the job done for you quickly.

Standing seam metal roofing is typically made with either galvanized steel, aluminum, or copper and zinc. The roof panels have vertical legs that act as fasteners. These fasteners are concealed to ensure they aren’t exposed to the elements or damaged over time. The concealed fastening system eliminates any possibility of leakage.

Since metal roofing panels are attached to the roof deck with clamps, there are no nail holes that would allow moisture to seep through. Instead, these metal roof panels offer sleek lines to create both a modern look and a roof that is structurally sound.

Commercial metal roofing offers many benefits, including:

  • Durability and sustainability
  • Lightweight and flexible structure
  • Energy-efficiency
  • Ability for installation over an existing roof
  • Resistance to UV rays, wind, and moisture
  • Ability to withstand extreme weather conditions
  • Long lifespan
  • Eco-friendly and made of recycled materials
  • Resistance to rust and fire
High Quality - Completely Custom


There are several different types of standing seam metal roofing panels, including snap-lock and mechanically seamed panels. Each of these types offers different uplift performance, weather resistance, and cost. In coastal counties, we typically rely on mechanically seamed panels due to their high uplift resistance and suitability for 20+ year manufacturer’s weathertight warranties.

Mechanically seamed panels interlock along the seam and then get folded together with a seamer in either a single-lock or double-lock design. The attachment clips also get folded within the seam and all fasteners are concealed. This hydrostatic design offers high performance in high winds and offers superior weather resistance.

In contrast, snap-lock panels are simply “snap-locked” to each other at the seams. They install relatively quickly and don’t require specialized seamers. Snap-lock panels tend to perform better on higher-sloped applications with simple roofs that have minimal details. When comparing the tested uplift capacity of snap-lock panels to mechanically-seamed panels, the snap-lock panels fall on the lower end of tested design pressures, which may not be suitable for windstorm applications. 

At Rio Roofing, Inc., we prefer mechanically seamed panels above all others.
