How We Keep Your Metal Roofing Materials Looking Their Best
Like with any other kind of roof, metal roofs made from 5V crimp panels need to be inspected from time to time to make sure they continue to work as they should. At Dickson Roofing, we have a team of experts with extensive experience in metal roof inspections. We know exactly what to look for and how to fix any problems we find.
While you should have your roof checked at least once a year, you will also need an inspection if your home has experienced fire or vandalism or you have any reason to believe roof damage has occurred. You should also schedule an inspection after a severe storm, such as a hailstorm, one that featured an abnormally heavy amount of rain, or one that had powerful winds.
Here are some of the different issues we look for on metal roofs, depending on the specific inclement weather that occurred.
- Debris that fell from the roof to the ground, or debris that might be scattered on the roof
- Loose flashing or looseness in any other components of the roof
- Punctures in the roof from flying or falling objects.
- Loose fasteners.
- Any other signs of damage.
- Damage to trim
- Loose fasteners
- Other types of hail-related damage
- Ponding water on the roof or in the gutters
- Loose fasteners
- Other water-related damage, such as damaged trim
How We Take Care of Leaks on a Metal Roof
When you turn to Dickson Roofing because you suspect a roof leak, you can expect us only to follow the best industry practices when performing a repair. For example, we don’t simply apply roof cement, caulk, or an elastomeric membrane and then tell you we’ve fixed the problem. Those so-called “repairs” will be temporary at best. It won’t be long until you once again have issues.
Caulks and compounds will lose their bond with the metal over time. Eventually, water will become trapped between the panel and the applied material. When this happens, severe corrosion will result, requiring the replacement of one or possibly several panels.
The best way to repair leaks involving a metal roof is to disassemble the metal joint and then apply the correct sealant between the different metal layers. Yes, this is more time-consuming, but it also provides a long-term solution – not a half-hearted “quick fix.”
