Standing seam or direct fasten

Guest User
In process of replacing roof. Trying to decide between standing seam or direct fasten. What are the visible differences between the two?

Thank you. By "direct fasten" I assume you mean "exposed fastened". The visible difference is the screw heads that can be seen on exposed fastened panels. I have a comprehensive white paper I have written discussion the primary types of vertical seam metal roofs. Drop me an email at [email protected] and I will reply and send it to you.
