Function is just as important as aesthetics when it comes to roof materials. The more area you can cover on a rooftop without seams or connections, the better. Shingles cover a small amount of space. At every seam or connection, there is a chance for moisture to penetrate or the wind to get underneath.
A roof structure has to be waterproof. Shingles are easier for high winds to blow loose. The seamless metal roofing system is composed of long lengths of metal panels. The pieces are form fitted and interlocked into place. This makes them durable and waterproof. Again, the installation needs to be done correctly so the roofing system is perfect.
Seamless metal roofs need to be installed by experienced metal roofing contractors. The contractor should use specific techniques to install the metal roofing system correctly. Otherwise, there can be problems with moisture infiltrating the underlying building materials. Moisture exposure leads to rotting and mold or mildew.
