Ultra Deck with Snap Lock Standing Seam

Ultra deck  snap lock standing is a type roof systems with no fasteners and is usually as 24 gauge color or galvalume . There is no penetration of fasteners in the system as it is usually snap locked onto the purlins and if cared for properly will last the lift time of the building, is less likely to ever leak but cost is generally double that of screw down system

Standing Seam with Seamer

Standing seam done with Seamer is the most expensive because of labor to install and rental of seamer generally provided by the   metal building   supplier.

Standing seam metal roofing is a seamed metal panel roofing system that features a variety of options for fastening flat metal panels for a metal roof. Standing seam based systems can be used metal roofing, which is the most common, or metal walls.

The main element to know for standing seam systems is that the fastener is hidden, whether the panel is attached to the roof deck using a clip or is directly fastened to the decking material under the vertical leg using a fastener flange.
