I just had a new standing seam roof installed, and I believe there were a lot of poor or strange choices made regarding seam placement. My home is the exact same model as many other homes in my community with the same exact roof and many are having new metal rooves installed to replace shingles. None of the other rooves have these issues. I wanted to know if you agree that these were strange/poor choices and what can be done.
The first image is an uncentered seam directly at the apex of the front of the house. Shouldn't they have worked to center this for aesthetic reasons?
The second is an image of how all of the corners appear as they approach the ridges. They start a metal seam right next to he ridge making for a sloppy appearance.
The third is of another seam made directly next to the ridge at the gable creating a very narrow gulley. There is already debris collecting in this area. Why did they do this? This is not like this on any other home in my neighborhood.
The last image is of another seam that oddly connects with the roof ridge as it approaches the second tier roof making for an ugly angle.
Would very much appreciate your thoughts.
There can be extenuating circumstances on roofs sometimes that force certain panel placement and I have no idea if that could have happened here. That said, experienced and well-trained crews will look hard at roof layout before they start installing. Doing so on your roof would have avoided some of things you're pointing out. What I am seeing by and large are not necessarily things done "wrong" but things that a well experienced installer may have avoided.
