Metal Roof Repair
Often metal roofing repairs can be more straightforward than other types of roofing.
Metal roofing is becoming a more popular roofing option due to its durability. Accent Roofing of Amarillo has the expertise to assess and maintain your metal roof. If you have a metal roof, Accent Roofing can help you locate potential damage and ensure repairs are completed correctly and are long lasting.
Often metal roofing repairs can be more straightforward than other types of roofing. If you suspect your metal roof is leaking, it is important to locate the leak and repair it as soon as possible. Water can cause damage to your home very quickly. Finding and repairing metal roof leaks prevents permanent damage to walls, woodwork, floor, and windows. Keep in mind that water leaks do not always appear near the leak. Water can travel through parts of the ceiling and damage can appear far from the site of the leak.
If you have a metal roof, it is important to be sure pipes and ductwork are not producing large amounts of condensation. Once you determine you have a leak and not heavy condensation, you will need to locate your leak. Metal roof leaks can be caused by poor installation. Required caulking sealants or misplaced seams can be the cause of leaks. If flashing is installed incorrectly, leaks could occur. Accent Roofing of Amarillo is dedicated to ensuring your metal roof is installed properly. Another cause of a leaking metal roof is damage from weather or aging. Aging metal roofing could result in separated seams and rusted areas. Sealants can also fail as the roof ages. A careful inspection of your roof is necessary to determine potential damage.
When inspecting a roof, Accent Roofing will look carefully around edges and transitions. They will check seams and sealant as well as look for holes and areas that are rusted and worn. Just like other roofing, metal roofing should be inspected annually. If your annual inspection leads to the discovery of weathered and scratched coating, it may be time to repair the coating. In fact, it will mean a new coating needs to be applied to your roof. All debris will need to be cleared from the roof before a new coating can be applied. Rust will also need to be removed with a wire brush or high pressure washer. New metal roof coating is painted on and can improve the energy efficiency of your roof.
Accent Roofing of Amarillo is experienced with metal roof repairs. The first thing that will be done to prepare for a roof repair is minor rust removal. The rust can be removed by sanding, grinding, or scrubbing the area with a wire brush. Once the rust has been removed, the area will be treated with a primer or rust inhibitor. Next, corroded or missing fasteners will need to be replaced. New fasteners will need to be covered with caulk and sealant. When the sealant is dry and set, it should be covered with roof coating. If the metal roofing has holes, they will be patched. The patch should overlap the hole and be screwed every two inches to ensure it lays flat. The patch and the screws will then be sealed with caulk and covered with roof covering. Some patches may be made using a membrane and other patches could require an entire section of roof to be replaced. No matter what type of repair your metal roof needs, Accent Roofing of Amarillo has the experience to complete the job.
