Whether for roofing or cladding, standing seam metal covering is currently all the rage. Fabricating a standing seam roof requires specific know-how and equipment: Dimos is there to help you take the plunge.
Metal roofs are currently one of the major growth markets for roofers. For over two decades, metal roofs have been springing up everywhere across Europe and around the world. This trend, which was initially very limited in terms of geography and expertise, has since become mainstream.
Architects like using metal roofs because they come in a wide variety of materials (not only zinc and copper, but also aluminium, steel or stainless steel, as well as many others), shapes (curved and other complex shapes) and colours, offering an almost infinite palette of shades. Every residential building could soon be wholly unique.
This development has been accelerated by the popularity of cladding, an activity that is also growing rapidly both for new building and renovation projects.
on a standing seam activity
Starting a standing seam metal roofing activity requires familiarisation with the laying technique, which can be acquired either through training or recruitment.
With the right organisation, nearly everything can be prepared in the workshop with this type of roof. Once on the construction site, you will then only need to install it, and add the finishes. It is still important, however, to have good layout plan.
It is essential to have the right standing seam tooling and machinery to ensure maximum productivity and work quality.
It is, of course, possible to buy pre-fabricated decks from your supplier or distributor, but they do demand greater accuracy in terms of site preparation and measurement. It very quickly makes sense economically to invest in a profiling machine. The more sophisticated models, like the DIPRO P7200, even enable you to manage and prepare entire series of decks for the whole roof.
Standing seam jobs require a large number of sometimes very specific tools. This is because they require a lot of finishing work, as well as dexterity and precision, to ensure the roof is visually satisfactory for the end customer.Discover our solutions for material processing
