The Secrets To Great Metal Roof Installation

The Secrets to Great Metal Roof Installation

Metal roofing systems are among the most popular roofing options on the market today. You can see them in various structures all across the country. They’re also known for their longevity, customizability and resilience to various weather conditions. If maintained and installed properly, a metal roof can last as long as your home does.

The Secrets to Great Metal Roof Installation

So, it’s important to make sure it’s installed properly.

 

Proper Attachment

 

A metal roof is made of metal panels with layers of insulation. The panels are then fastened or clipped to the roof’s structural components. If roof clips are used, they’re secured into pre-punched holes in the structure. This allows for more flexibility as it ensures that your panels are properly aligned and can be moved without dismantling any parts of your roofing system. A poorly attached roof won’t last as long as they could be easily torn away by strong gusts or cause the panels to be misaligned if the clipping was slipshod.

 

Proper Sloping

 

Metal roofs function as watersheds and credit their waterproof capabilities, thanks to proper sloping. While metal itself isn’t waterproof, we ensure that your metal roofs are correctly sloped when we install them. Compared to low-slope roofs, properly sloped metal roofs shed water and snow quicker, which prevents water infiltration and leaks from occurring. Incorrectly sloped roofs are much more susceptible to water pooling, which can cause leaks that could compromise your entire roofing system.

 

Have an Experienced Contractor 

 

Even if you have all the proper materials on hand, you still need the experience of a certified contractor like us to carry out the job.
