The roofing experts at Smart Roofing, Inc. have recently installed a standing seam metal roof system in Highland Park, Illinois. A standing seam metal roof system is a succession of vertical sheet metal panels connected side-by-side by a vertical locking mechanism called the seam. The seams can be seen from the ridge of a roof all the way down to the eaves. The locked seam is raised by an inch or two above the panels in order to maintain water-tightness of the system. The raised seam also provides for a unique and distinctive appearance.
As with most metal roofs featuring concealed fasteners, standing seam roofs are virtually maintenance-free, fire-retardant and resistant to strong winds, and are just as quiet as asphalt shingles, clay tiles, or wooden shingles/shakes when it rains provided you have solid sheathing underneath the panels and well insulated attic space.

From my very first conversation with you, to the last standing seam panel your expert crew installed, my experience with Smart Roofing was, in a word, fantastic.
Smart Roofing’s attention to detail and care for my home was evident in every member of your crew, right down to the impeccable cleanup. Everyone was courteous, not only to me, but to each other, and answered each of my 10,125 questions and dealt with all my concerns as if they were working on their own home. Their craftsmanship is evident in even the smallest details, which I especially appreciate.
As you promised, the new roof is well·engineered, because my house is cooler on these hot summer days. And, as you also promised, it is aesthetically beautiful, as evidenced by the many compliments I’ve received.
Thank you for truly improving my home- and for fulfilling my dream of at last having a standing seam roof.
