Metal Roofs: 5V Crimp vs Standing Seam Metal Roof
5V is simply called that because its surface is crimped with 5 V-shaped creases, two along each edge and one in the middle. The typical profile is 24” wide, but some are as narrow as 16”, which can give a more scaled-down look for smaller homes.
5V has stood the test of time, and it is ideally suited for coastal exposures. High winds, hard, pelting rains and sudden changes in wind direction are no match for this sturdy, dependable roofing material. Look for greater satisfaction with thicker gauges (26 over 29, for example). 5V is generally more economical at installation than standing seam roofs. It has exposed fasteners, and the fasteners adhere through the roof panel into your purlins and sheathing.
Standing seam metal panels get their name because the seams stand above the roof, meaning moisture and debris seldom get into the seams to cause damage.
Standing seam roofs are usually considered a step up from 5V because they hide their fasteners. The metal panels lock into place with clips that allow for thermal expansion and contraction, something not available in 5V.
Installation of standing seam roofs will cost more than 5V installation because of the added labor required, but once in, they provide seamless protection from ridge to eave. Metal roofs offer longer warranties on material and labor.
