Exposed Fastener Panel Metal Roofs are the most economical form of Metal Roofing. They are called exposed fastener because the fasteners remain visible once installed. They are painted to match the color of the roof. The metal roof panels are overlapped and fastened directly to the roof deck or framing through the face of the metal.
Standing Seam Metal Roofs have panels that snap together and don't have exposed fasteners. Standing Seam Roofs allow the panels to expand and contract with changing temperatures, which allows them to last longer and cause less wear and tear on the roof deck. Standing Seam Metal Roofs have a longer life expectancy, which is also why they are more expensive than Exposed Fastener Panel Metal Roofs.
