Strongly thinking of putting a stainless standing seam roof on my house. Cost is not as great as you might think. Wondering if anyone has any experience with this?
Thanks--Hal

I don't have any experience with stainless roofing. I do know that some stainless panels are plain steel with stainless clad over them. When the panels are sheared to length the plain steel is exposed on the ends and can rust depending on the environment they're exposed to.

In my humble opinion. I have no idea what grade stainless they use. Now it could be a terrific looking roof. Next it is going to look like a dairy barn if it is not colored. Summer time it will be very shinny and also reflect heat from the sun. My folks barn was galvinized and you could see that barn from 5 or 6 miles away on the other side of the valley. Then the traveling crews sprayed it with black roof tar. Have seen metal roofs in several colors. Green looks kinda nice. Guess I am rambling a little. There have got to be some experts on here. Well I started to do some looking. My neice is an architect and so I know where to look for stuff on line. This site gives you an absolute ton of information from an architectural design point of view. There is a lot more than the average person would think. Hope this answers all of your questions.

Scrap price alone for SS is 5.33 times more expensive than steel.

Prime metals is most likely a bigger spread than that.

Here in Florida anyways.

when you put two stainless steels together, say sheet and fastenings one will show rust stains. This is from many years in yachting and stainless steels and stainless bolts or screws. This is experience with 304, 316, 317, 324 stainless. The 304 is also used for pots and pans as it is easily formed. I have had all types used for marine engine mufflers, hot salt water and diesel exhaust rotted all out in two years each. Went then to plastic muffler and never a problem thereafter

Thanks for the link--very informative. The material is 26ga. 304 stainless. Quoted cost is 190.00 per hundred sq. ft. Some of the Amish in this area are putting it on their barns & houses. Some local roofers are using it on their own homes. Drip edge, valleys, ridge cap & screws are all stainless. Thanks again.

From everything that I have read, the regular standing seam roof is light years ahead of asphalt shingles or plain metal roof. Why would you need more?

Stainless steel is one of the most active metals when it comes to expansion and contraction. Will leak like a sieve in a couple years. Of course all metal roofs leak unles installed properly which means standing seam, concealed fasteners. This will allow the roof panels to move. Screwed down or nailed down pole barn siding/roofing is guaranteed to leak right out of the box.

We have stainless on our old barn roof and the shop is stainless on the outside and on the inside we also put stainless over the insulation and ceiling. Never had a problem.

No, they all leak within fifteen years or so, it is just that no one has gone really looking for where they leak. The insulation holds the small amount. A house near me changed hands 3-4 years ago, and right away they were replacing the steel roof, which I remembered going up. They were putting asphalt on it, and the new owner said that they found a bunch of leaks during the inspection that had not shown up yet inside. The got it in time to prevent real damage.

I doubt that. All metal roofs leak.
The facts remain a sheetmetal roof expands and contracts constantly and works on the fasteners and elongates the holes and all of a sudden, roof leak.
Only a fool would install a sheetmetal roof and expect not to leak
