A metal roof is a roofing system made from metal pieces or tiles. Metal roofs have become popular in Florida with the rise of Key West architecture.
Metal Roof Repairs
Metal roofs can last a lifetime in most circumstances. These roofs are easy to maintain. Homeowners and building owners often think that it is necessary to replace a metal roof if there’s a leak. However, this usually isn’t necessary. In reality, most leaks in metal roofs can be resolved by replacing missing screws, sealing penetration areas and open seams, and sealing areas that are leaking.
Metal roof repair options include:
Coating a metal roof it will protect the roof from wear and tear, as well as rusting out of the metal. A new coat should be applied every 5-10 years. A metal roof should only be replaced if the metal is bent or rusted through.
New Standing Seam Metal
Standing Seam Metal is a metal product that comes in rolled form and in various widths. The material
is “seamed” together using a special seaming tool that runs vertically up the panel to seal the joints and prevent water from leaking into the structure.
Aluminum is one of the longest-lasting metals, but somewhat expensive compared to steel products. Aluminum roofs are very lightweight, corrosion-resistant, have high natural reflectivity and even higher natural emissivity, increasing a building’s energy efficiency.
