How to Solve Your Leaking Metal Roof Problems
If you own a commercial building with a metal roof system then you know the problems that are inherent to a metal roof are unique to those systems. When not installed properly, metal roofs are prone to leaks. The five most common problems with a metal roof are as follows:
- Openings in the Horizontal Seams. Metal roof panels don’t usually extend the full rafter length of a commercial building. Sometimes the length of the panels is limited by design based on expansion and contraction requirements. The problem is that overtime horizontal seams are prone to separation. This can cause an opening that allows water to enter the building.
- Openings in Penetration Flashing. Metal roofs expand and contract with the weather. Temperature changes causes metal panels to move. This movement creates stress and leads to a breakdown of the flashings which results in roof leaks. These can be very difficult to repair due to it being very difficult to remove and disassemble metal panels in your roofing system.
- Metal Roof Oxidation. Metal roofs are made from a variety of materials. Some of these are subject to the process or result of oxidizing or being oxidized. Over time the coating on your metal roof can wear away leaving a rust cell that can lead to many leaking problems and impede repairs.
- Fasteners Backing Out. Metal roof systems often uses an integration of exposed and concealed fasteners. A fastener can be a nail or a screw. Over time fasteners are liable to back out of their seated position. A high wind or alternate freezing and thawing of the metal panels can cause fastener back out and a leaky roof.
- Open Ridge/Headwall Flashing. Metal roof systems need to terminate into other structures on the surface of the building. There may be a metal roof system ending into a rising wall below another area on a structure. The juxtapositions of architecturally designed spaces often is an area where structural weaknesses happen. As the building ages water gets in at the open ridge/headwall flashing point.
Metal Roof Repair Versus Replacement
Metal roof systems that is maintained and repaired can last for 30 years or more if the original installation was done right. To keep ahead of the problems, we recommend that your metal roof system be assessed every six months to catch little issues before they become big problems.
