A metal roof is a wonderful choice. For one, it’s very durable and can withstand any weather conditions. Its humble design has been transformed into something more modern and stylish. Metal roofing can even be made to look like shingles, tiles, or shakes. You can match your metal roofing in Concord with your home’s exterior and style by choosing from a variety of finishes.

This roofing option can last for up to 50 year. This is twice the lifespan of its popular counterpart. Metal roofing is a great roofing system, but it still needs to be maintained. Here are some ways to take better care your metal roofing.

  1. Keep an eye out for any debris. Metal roofing has a smooth surface which is designed to drain rainwater efficiently. However, leaves, dirt, and other debris can build up on your roof. This happens especially if tree branches hang above the roof. This debris buildup must be removed immediately. This is because the debris can retain moisture which encourages mold growth and also damages the roof’s protective finish. To prevent any further buildup, remove any tree branches that are hanging over your roof. Pressure washing can also be used to remove any unsightly debris from your roof. However, it is important to hire a professional to do the job.
  2. Make sure your gutters are clean. The gutter system is an extension to your metal roof and should be kept clean. Rainwater can back up in your gutter system and cause flooding. This could lead to rainwater pooling at the base, causing water damage, and also leaving the exterior of your home vulnerable to water damage. Water can seep through the fascia board, causing leaks. This can be prevented by having your gutters cleaned frequently or investing in a gutter protection system.
  3. Regularly inspect your roof. A thorough inspection by a Bay Valley Contractors roofing professional can make a big difference in the life of your metal roof. This is particularly important after a major weather storm. Although metal roofs can withstand inclement weather, it is still capable of sustaining the damage. Our experienced and trained team can inspect your roof to confirm that. It’s better to be proactive and have any problems detected early than waiting for obvious damage to occur.
  4. Look out for signs of corrosion on your metal roof. Flashing around the chimney and heating vents as well as any oil condensers over the cooking area are all susceptible. These components can release heat, steam and chemicals which can cause damage to your metal roof’s finish. The risk of leaks increases when the flashing becomes corroded. Get in touch with your local roofing contractor immediately to find the right solution.
