A metal roof is a great choice for homeowners looking to replace a roof. It's great curb appeal, long lifespan and resilience are just a few of the benefits that come along with metal roofing. So once you decide to go with a metal roofing system how do you ensure your roof stays in great shape? Here we will go over a few metal roofing tips.
Have your roof inspected
The harsh elements your roof endures is reason enough to have it inspected. Ideally, you should have your roof inspected twice a year or after a strong storm hits your area. Leaks can go unnoticed and weaken decking underneath your roof and cause unexpected repair or replacement costs. A pro will spot potential problems, offer solutions and have the experience necessary to complete repairs.
Large branches and brush can cause weak spots upon your roof. Whether the damage comes from years of overgrowth or from a storm, trimming branches away from fascia and the roof will ensure longevity. Along with brush and branches, moisture from untrimmed greenery can cause leaks.
Clear your gutters
Gutters can clog after a storm, or from years of build up. They can collect water and damage the edges of your metal roof. Inspect your gutters twice a year or after a major storm to avoid buildup. Clogs often occur where downspouts join the gutter system, these are areas to check carefully.
