Stone coated steel roofing is made to last, but sometimes it sustains storm damage or has reached the end of its life span, causing for you to replace it.
Stone coated steel roofs are popular because they offer the aesthetic appeal of traditional roofing options but use the combined strength of granite and steel to create a durable, long-wearing product.
If you have noticed bent tiles, damaged shingles, leaks, holes, or granule loss, it may be time to replace your stone-coated steel roofing.
Stone Coated Steel Roofing Replacement
It’s important that you perform regular inspections of your roof. This will help you stay on top of any maintenance issues and increase the lifespan of your roof. Ensure your roof is clear of debris, like leaves and branches that trap moisture, and ensure your gutters and downspouts are clear.
Stone coated steel roofing requires minimal maintenance, but caring for your roof will improve its functionality. You may not need to replace your entire roof but rather just a damaged section. But if your roof has sustained damage from high winds or hail, it’s critical that you perform an inspection yourself or get a professional company like The Roofing Centre to inspect your roof for damage.
If you can spot problems early, you can take immediate action and prevent damage to the structure of your roof.
Signs You Need a Roof Replacement
Some signs of damage can be difficult to spot, and a professional roofing contractor can help you identify any damage or problem areas and offer solutions.
Granule damage is one of the most common problems for Stone coated steel roofing and is often a cosmetic issue. When your roof starts to lose granules, it can make it look tired and worn.
However, an excessive loss of granules can expose the underlying metal of your roof sheets, leading to rust and corrosion. Some granule loss is normal after your initial roof installation, but anything excessive on an older roof indicates deteriorating shingles. If you notice bald patches on your roof, contacting a professional company to chat about a replacement is best.
Leaks are one of the easiest ways to spot a damaged roof, as they usually indicate deteriorating materials or damaged roof sheets. You may notice interior water damage at the lowest point of your roof, and your attic is a good place to check if you suspect your roof is leaking. If you notice visible damage like cracks, chips, or missing tiles, it’s time for a roof replacement.
Blistering is also a common sign that it’s time for a new roof. Blistering happens when moisture or air is trapped beneath the roofing layers. As the temperature rises, pressure expands the air and moisture pockets, forming a blister. These often happen due to poor ventilation in your roof, which can lead to other serious problems.
Bent or loose tiles are also an important issue to look out for. Steel tiles can buckle if walked on incorrectly, and not only do they look awful, but they can also cause water infiltration that can damage your roof decking.
Holes in your shingles from tree branches or hailstones are also a source of leaking. Small holes can be fixed with a specialized caulk product. But if you have substantial damage, you may need a full stone-coated steel roof replacement.
High Energy Bill
Your roof is an important part of your insulation system, so if you notice a higher energy bill, your roof may need better insulation or ventilation. This will affect the inside temperature of your home and is often a sign of a deteriorating roof system.
