Also known as sheet metal roof comprised of vertical panels, featuring characteristic raised seams, hence standing seam.

Pros: One advantage of this system is the design incorporating concealed fasteners, which means there is no risk of unwanted roof leaks associated with any exposed fasteners becoming loose over-time, and/or rubber seals around the exposed fasteners drying out and developing cracks.
