With five profiles and more than thirty colors to choose from, the new line will enable authorized Duro-Last contractors to provide a standing seam roofing installation to meet virtually any aesthetic requirements. The new standing seam program includes metal production capabilities provided by a nationwide network of independent regional manufacturers.

Depending on the installation location, roof panels will be produced at Exceptional Metals’ Saginaw, Michigan, facility or by one of the regional manufacturers.
“Our standing seam capability provides a strong step forward with respect to the product portfolio our contractors can sell,” said Steve Ruth, Duro-Last Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “We founded Exceptional Metals several years ago to manufacture edge details and other roofing components, and always had the vision of offering standing seam panels. Our established, nationwide contractor base combined with local on-demand metal roofing production capabilities will provide great sales opportunities.”
Profiles will be available for architectural, structural, and flush wall/soffit panel standing seam applications. Paint and substrate warranties of 25 years and 35 years are available for panels, depending on the substrate metal they are made from and the finish that is applied.
