Exposed Fastener Metal Roof Panels vs Standing Seam
Choosing A Metal Roof Panel
If you’re interested in buying a metal roof then the first decision that needs to be made is the type of metal roofing panel system.
What Is Exposed Fastener Metal Roofing?
The fasteners will pierce the face of the metal roofing panels and then attach to the structure. The screws are visible and aren’t hidden by the panel seams. 7/8" Corrugated and R Panel are two popular types of exposed fastener metal roofing panels.
What Is Concealed Fastener Metal Roofing?
The fastener is hidden and does not penetrate the face of the metal panel. Instead, the panels are attached directly to the roof deck with a clip or screwed through a fastener flange. Standing seam metal roofing has concealed fasteners.
