What Repairs are Common for Metal Roofs?
Exposed fastener metal roofs, also known as R panel roofs, have thousands of screws that pierce the metal. If the rubber washers on those screws are not perfectly flat and sealed against the metal, they will leak. Roofers are only human, and on that slippery metal roof, after installing 7329 screws, it's nearly impossible to install a perfectly torqued and straight screw. So you often see white sealant on some of the screws on these roofs after a year or two.
The rubber on those screws also breaks down over time, and every 10 years all the fasteners should be replaced! Some people try to avoid this by coating the roof with a silicone coating, which helps a little. This is another common metal roof repair - if your R panel roof is about 10 years old, you should call Cook Roofing Company at 816-680-6996 to discuss options before your roof becomes a sieve.
Metal roofs are not as easy to install as Jim Bob the Roofer makes it seem on YouTube. Another common issue with metal roofs is due to poor installation. This affects all types of metal roofs. Missing trim or flashing, installing pieces backwards so the downhill piece is on top of the uphill piece, lets water run right under that lower piece. Panels must be cut precisely, so that they connect and interlock and don't let water underneath. It's surprising how often seemingly reputable roofing companies fail at metal roof installation.
If metal pieces aren't securely installed and fastened, wind can get under the edges of panels and pull them right up. Sometimes roofers won't check the existing roof decking to make sure it's solid, and they'll screw the new roof into into soft or rotted decking. These are the kinds of things you can avoid if you just call Cook Roofing Company in the first place, if you're considering a new metal roof in St. Joseph, MO. And if it's too late for that, we can come fix the existing one.
