Four Twelve Case Study: Everlast Standing Seam Metal Roof Installation


In May of 2019, Four Twelve was hired to perform a roof replacement for a new client. He was in need of a custom standing seam metal roof installed on a home. Four Twelve worked with the client to build a unique roof for their home that gave them everything they were hoping for their Roofing Columbia MD service. For this roof installation, Four Twelve decided to use Everlast metals as the manufacturer, given their long-lasting roofing products and the overall quality that our client desired. The end result would be a durable Everlast standing seam metal roof.

Standing Seam Metal Roof Challenges

In order to complete this project, Four Twelve undertook an extensive planning process — getting the exact measurements, speccing out the specific type of standing seam system, and working with the manufacturer to ensure all the details were correct before the ordering process. Standing seam metal roofs require a heightened level of detail that is crucial for a successful project. The panels must be cut and ordered to specific lengths, fasteners for joining the panels must be custom as well. With all these delicate moving parts, having talented technicians onsite to execute the installation is also a vital piece to the puzzle.

One detail that is important when installing standing seam metal roofs is to use an underlayment that sufficiently protects your home. Specifically, for these types of projects, Four Twelve recommends using Ice and Water Shield to cover the roof sheeting. In the event of water intrusion, this underlayment system sufficiently protects our client’s homes and is a product that we can stand behind. Having this additional layer of protection helps ensure that your new Everlast standing seam metal roof has durability and longevity.
