Metal roofs are one of the most common types of roofs used in multi-family properties, either as a new construction roof or replacing an aging roof, for all of the benefits metal roofs provide, such as energy efficiency, beautiful styles, and fire resistance. However, metal roofs are not indestructible and can and will get damaged from time to time, and we understand how, as a HOA manager, this can be a concern for you.
For this reason, at The Roofing Center, we offer professional roofing repairs for multi-family properties with metal roofs. We are experienced roofing contractors in Utah, with almost 40 years of experience helping HOA managers with all the repairs needed on the metal roofs of the multi-family properties they manage.
Metal Roof Damage Risks
Metal roofs’ durability lasts longer than asphalt ones. However, it is worth mentioning that there are risks that you have to consider when opting for it or when having this type of roof in your multi-family roofing.
Even though metal roofs are exceptionally durable, they are not safe from leaks. Extreme weather— specifically ice that freezes and thaws quickly—is the most common source of leaks in metal roofs. Leaks can also occur as a result of aging or because your roof’s seam (which links many panels) was not put properly in the first place.
Copper, steel, stainless, and galvanized are types of metal that can be used for your roof, but, is essential for you to know that some are not compatible when used together and they do not perform the same. Knowing what type of metal your roof is, is worth remembering that so you avoid corrosion and rust.
During construction, it is expected for roofs to endure the constant stomping of the foot of workers. That traffic could contribute to punctures on the roof, which are small holes that can result in the escape of air or water flow into the building.
Oil and Movement
The best way to avoid and prevent oil canning in your roof is by contracting a trusted and experienced contractor that provides you with quality metal material. Another point to consider is that the metal roofs should be installed properly leaving enough room for it to expand and contract.
