Dear experts, We are building a home that calls for a standing seam metal roof on a small front porch (11 X 3'6"). Our builder installed what looks like a piece of tin that you would see on a chicken coop or something. It is very shiny and has a lot of ridges. I am baffled at how he could think this is what we wanted on our home and am dreading yet another battle with him. I have never seen anything BUT "standing seam" metal roofs on residential construction. Could you tell me if you have seen anything but standing seam metal roofing used in a metal roof residential construction application? I am hoping for something that I can say to him to help him undertand how totally wrong the roofing he has put on there is (other than the fact that it is NOT what is on the blueprint!) Thanks for your help!

Without a picture, I cant't tell you what type of metal panel you have. Here in Texas, on residential we mostly put on agricultural panels. Standing seam on homes is not common in my area. I take off blueprints that show standing seam on porches, walkways, covered patios and entryways. Invariably the builder or homeowner changes it to thru the panel fastened panels to save the money. Goodluck--standing seam is a beautiful roof.

Ultimately, if your plans call for standings eam, then that is what you should have. If you wish, email pictures to me of what you have and I will tell you what it is. My email is [email protected]
