Long-Lasting &
Durable Metal Roofs

New Orleans home and business owners who are looking for a modern profile for their roofs are turning to metal roofing in higher numbers. The popularity of this roofing option, and notably the standing seam option, is growing every day. Known for their durability and long-lasting nature, metal roofs have undergone a bit of a makeover in recent years. Now, in addition to the functional reasons that they are so loved in the New Orleans area, they are also more attractive!

The new color and design options that are currently available have transformed the image of metal roofing. This option has always been popular because it offers high durability, low cracking rates, no shrinkage, and a lack of erosion. Put all of those features together with a robust design that will last for years and comes in a variety of colorways, and metal roofs are the clear winner!

Standing Seam Metal Roof

Standing seam metal roofs are by far the most popular type of metal roofing system, especially in New Orleans. They are composed of continuous metal panels that run from the top of the roof’s ridge down to its eaves. Each panel is connected at a seam that is raised up above the level of the roof, hence the name “standing seam.”

Why is a standing seam so desirable? In most roofs, the seams are the weakest and most vulnerable parts of any roof. These are the areas where water damage usually occurs, as seams are susceptible to leaks. Because they are raised higher than the roofing panels, they are less vulnerable to settling moisture. In addition, because the seams run only vertically (as opposed to both vertically and horizontally) your metal roof has fewer seams overall.

Let Our Work
Speak For Itself

This building on Coursey Boulevard had 1x4 furring strips installed over the existing roof, per request. Garcia Roofing fabricated the roof edging and all valley metal flashings and installed it prior to any other metals. Since the roof was bell-shaped, we installed two separate panels from the eave to the ridge and made a specially fabricated transition flashing to connect both panels together.
