Protect Standing Seam Roof Systems from Water Damage

MBCI Water Shedding Standing Seam Metal
September 29, 2023 at 6:00 a.m.

By Anna Lockhart.  

Is your standing seam roof designed for water shedding? Find out how to prevent water damage in water shedding standing seam roofing systems.  

While many would categorize standing seam roof systems as structural or architectural, these terms are not the only classifications used to define them. Instead, MBCI metal roof expert Amy Crenan, has pointed out that these systems are better categorized as either water shedding or water barrier systems.  

Water shedding standing seam roofing systems are designed to shed water simply by the force of gravity, eliminating the threat of water gathering on or underneath the panels and causing damage. However, this design is not always foolproof, and there are additional precautions that can be taken to ensure that these systems don’t take on excess water.  

In her blog post for MBCI, Amy points out that the steeper the roof, the quicker the water will run off the structure. Because of this, installers want to be sure that they install these roof systems at a pitch of 3:12 or more so that gravity is sure to better shed water.  

As water shedding panel systems are always considered architectural panels, not structural, it is critical that they be installed over a solid roof deck, one that is efficiently covered with a quality membrane to protect the structure beneath from moisture damage. This membrane barrier will be the structure's main barrier preventing water or moisture from getting inside, so making sure that the membrane is secure will protect the home or building.  

MBCI boasts an impressive, high-quality line of standing seam metal roof systems ready to protect any home or building from harsh weather or water damage.
