Metal roofs are designed to last 50+ years. Even with their long life expectancy, they do from time to time need repair. Here are some signs that you are in need of a metal roof repair:
- Loose seams – Metal roofs will expand and contract with changing weather and temperatures. With this movement, the seams in a metal roof can form gaps. It is important to have these gaps repaired, as they can allow water to enter the roof and cause damage.
- Blow-offs – It is unlikely to have a part of your roof blow off, but it is possible. If this does occur, you will need immediate metal roof repair. We recommend having your metal roof professionally inspected once a year to ensure you don’t have any hazards or possible future blow-offs.
- 20 years – If you have had your metal roof for 20 years or more, it is time to have the sealant replaced. Your roof will last much longer, and you won’t have to worry about corrosion or future metal roof repairs if you maintain a good sealant on your roof.
Metal roofs are designed to last decades. But with any purchase, it is important to take care of your investment. It is a good idea to periodically inspect your roof and have a professional inspect your roof once a year. If you notice any of the signs above, we recommend having your metal roof repaired as soon as possible.
