Tips For Metal Roof Repairs

Finding the right metal roof repairs for your home or business is important. In most cases, these types of roofs are very durable, and will likely last for years. However, these roofs are susceptible to damage from rust, storm damage and due to the expansion and the contraction of the metal itself. In these situations, you do need to take steps to repair the problem to avoid further problems.

The following are a few tips to help you to handle problems associated with metal roof repairs. Consider the following:

  • Do you have a warranty on the roof? Many of these roofs have long-term warranties. If it is still under warranty, you will not have to pay for the improvements or repairs.

  • In situations where the damage to the roof is large, replacing the entire section of the roof is necessary. As a do it yourselfer, you may be tempted to do this project yourself. That is not recommended.

  • To prevent further problems, remove any loose nails from the metal roof. Replace these with new nails.

  • If you see areas of rust, or holes, these are signs of deterioration. In small areas, patching may be helpful. In large problems, replacement may be the best course of action.

  • In many situations, you will need to seal the leaks around the roof, especially in areas where the roof buts up against vents or skylights. Use urethane roof cement for this to ensure it will cover any holes properly.

  • You may need to reseal the seams and edges of the roof. To do this, especially along the flashing, use a urethane roofing cement to keep it in place. If the flashing is very damaged, replace it.
