Standing Seam Metal Roof Replacement Process: Project Example in Plano, Texas?

If you have a commercial property and are considering a metal roof, you’re making a wise choice. In this blog, we’ll walk you through the standing seam metal roof replacement process, using a project we recently started in Plano, Texas, as an example. The video is above.

Evaluating the Roof

Our journey began with a thorough evaluation of the existing roof. The property owner noticed a leak, and upon inspection, we discovered extensive hail damage. Given the severity of the damage, we determined that a complete roof replacement was necessary.

Removing the Old Roof

The first step in the replacement process is the careful removal of all existing roofing materials down to the decking. This step is crucial to ensure that the decking is in good condition and capable of supporting the new roof. We found several areas with rotted decking that we replaced.

Installing Underlayment and Barriers

Once the decking is confirmed to be in good shape, we install a synthetic underlayment. This underlayment acts as a secondary barrier against water infiltration. Additionally, we place ice and water barriers around all transitions and valleys to provide extra protection in these vulnerable areas.

Custom Fabricated Panels

The heart of the standing seam metal roof system is the custom fabricated panels. In the video, you can see a one-inch snap lock system being installed. These panels are carefully measured and cut to fit the roof perfectly, ensuring a seamless and durable finish.

Benefits of a Metal Roof

Switching to a metal roof offers several significant advantages:

  • Longevity: A metal roof is a 40-year system and can be considered a lifetime product.
  • Durability: It is class four rated for hail and wind resistance, making it an excellent choice for areas prone to severe weather.
  • Performance: Unlike the previous roof, which was fastened with nails, we use screws for installation. This change ensures a much longer-lasting and high-performing roof.


Investing in a standing seam metal roof for your commercial property is a decision that offers numerous benefits, from enhanced durability to long-term cost savings. The process, while detailed, ensures that you get a roof that not only looks great but performs exceptionally well for decades.
