Metal Roof Repair

Metal Roofing is durable but older profiles with screwed down seams are prone to leaks. Common repairs with mastics and tapes usually aggravate the leak.

Common Issues

Rusted Roof Roof Flashing Seam Leak

Metal Rust - Corrosion occurs when the protective coating or galvanization of the roof wears out and bare metal is exposed.

Flashings - A majority of metal roof leaks are caused by poor flashing design along penetrations.

Temporary Repairs - Stop using seam tapes, mastics and silicone sealants on a metal roof. They aggravate the leak!

Seam Leaks - If you have an older metal building constructed using panels with exposed fasteners and seams.

Metal Roofing

Annual maintenance includes patching any holes and treating any rusted areas as soon as possible. Avoid using asphalt mastics, silicone sealants and aluminum and plastic backed tapes on the seams.

Reflectivity of Metal Roofs

The solar reflectivity of metal roofs depends on the color of the finish.

Dark colored metal roofs can reach 180°F or more in the summer. The heat load of a black roof can severely degrade the performance of airconditioning equipment.

Elastomeric coatings provide the highest reflectivity and is a very popular option for building owners. White roof coatings can reflect up to 90% of the heat from the sun.
