Metal Roof Repair
Metal roofing is a durable material and requires very little maintenance, but occasionally you may need metal roof repair. Your metal roof will last for upwards of 50 years if properly maintained, but it depends on a complete system to protect your building.
Look for these signs of roof damage:
- Missing flashing
- Loose drip edge
- Improper fastener installation
- Waterproof membrane
- Damaged rooftop ventilators
- Degraded, crumbling rubber boots around vent pipes and stacks
The list of possible trouble spots is really just as long as other roofing materials because every roof is an integrated system. With conscientious metal roof repair from a local roofer, you can expect to benefit from metal roofing’s best qualities while safeguarding against the predictable issues.
Signs You Need Metal Roof Repair
Incorrectly installed or missing flashing is a common problem for many roof owners in South Florida. Having flashing repaired or added will help extend the life of your roof while keeping you safe and dry inside.
Crumbling Rubber Boot
Contrary to popular misconception, metal roofs do not quickly rust away. The alloys and coatings used in today’s metal roofing relegate metal roof repairs primarily to the non-metal parts or your metal roof. These can easily be replaced.
Improper Fastener Installation
When fasteners aren’t installed correctly they can start lifting, causing damage to the roofing system and allow leaks into your building. Cap flashing is often not fastened correctly and can then sustain damage during high winds, leaving your underlayment open to the elements. Water can also travel behind the metal panels into your building.
Metal Roof Cleaning
There are many professional roof cleaning companies who will clean your roof, but they use high-pressure wash and harsh chemicals which harm your yard and the environment. Their efforts could even make the roof look worse and at times void any warranties still active on your roof. To get a clean roof without this unnecessary damage, a soft wash with an all-natural cleaning solution is needed.
Kelly Roofing will help you restore your roof to its like-new condition, without damaging your roof, your warranty, or the environment.
You want your metal roof to look great all the time. Humidity, dirt and debris, and acid rain all can affect how it looks. Restoring the like-new look can be as easy as cleaning the roof. This can also extend the life of your metal roof and reduce the need for expensive repairs or early replacement.
Don’t Wait Until It Is Too Late
If water is wreaking havoc on the inside of your roof, the signs may not be obvious. Knowing the stage of a metal roof leak can help prevent any further damage inside your building. If you suspect you may have a leak or know you need an inspection, its time to eliminate the stress of not knowing. Kelly Roofing can help you enjoy a long-lasting, worry-free metal roof.
