Metal Roof Replacement Options

Metal Roof Replacement and Repair Options: Replacement versus Restoration versus Repair

There are three main options that are available to building manages and owners to deal with before considering metal roof replacement on their building. They can either replace an old roof by installing a new roof assembly, restore the current roof system, or repair the current roof
system.

So if your metal roofing system has leaking conditions, you will need to determine whether you will replace, restore, or repair your roof system.

1. Maintain and Repair

One option is to repair and maintain a metal roof system. This type of roof system has an estimated useful life of 30 years or longer when the original installation is a high-quality one. It is highly recommended that you review your metal roof system be reviewed biannually to detect problems early before they have a chance to get worse.

The key to keeping a metal roof system well-maintained is reviewing the roofing system regularly. The best thing is to detect problems early on before there is a chance for them to get worse. Problems such as oxidation may be addressed early on at a lower cost. Finding fasteners that have begun to backout and re-tightening them can help to reduce leaks and keep the roof system well-maintained.

2. Restoration

As metal roofs continue to age, usually leaks will occur more often. The roof system’s overall condition and rate of leaks will eventually require a lot more work. A roof will continue to get older without restoration work being done. There is a limited opportunity for getting a restoration program implemented before it becomes necessary to replace the roof.

Metal roof Restoration ContractorsThere are typically a specific series of steps involved in metal roof restoration. They include repairing the deficiencies discussed above including using a rust inhibitor and replacing fasteners. It might also be necessary to have additional repairs done to penetrations and details. Once the repairs are done, it is strongly recommended that a coating be applied to the roof system’s surface.

Coating materials are available in two main types. They are urethane coatings and acrylic coatings. These options are both available when metal roof restoration is considered. Each has restrictions that need to be considered when a restoration solution is being designed.

3. Replacement

A metal retrofit system is a new and innovative metal roof replacement option. This type of system can be used when a low-sloped metal roofing system needs to be replaced. This type of system typically is installed on top of structured metal roofing systems. The existing roofing system then becomes the new roof system’s metal deck.

How it Works

Metal retrofit systems are installed by an area being fulled in on the metal panel with insulation board in between the metal ribs. That results in a flush surface being created. Once the infill has been installed, an extra insulation board layer is installed to create a solid surface that the roof membrane can be applied to. The final step is to install a new single-ply membrane.

Simulated Standing Seam

In certain situations, a metal roof appearance is desired. However, the job conditions prevent the system from being installed. Jobs with complex layouts or where there is a non-nailable deck surface can limit being able to use traditional metal roof panels.

Simulated standing seam roof assemblies have been designed by single-ply manufacturers to meet these unique projects’ needs. In order to address this specific project requirement, a standard PVC roofing system is featured by the system. Once the roof system is finished, a simulated standing seam rib gets applied to the surface of the roof. That provides a standing seam that has a single-ply membrane system’s benefits.

Traditional Metal Roof Systems

The best solution for some projects is the feel and appearance of metal roofing. There are many different kinds of metal roof panels that are available that range from standing seam metal panels to metal roof shingles. The best application to use will be different for every building and project.

Why Restore Your Metal Roof?

Metal Roof Restoration Has Many Benefits

Whether commercial or residential, a metal roofing system is a great choice. They have a lot of benefits, but the main ones are their energy efficiency and their durability. If you’re thinking about replacing your roof, here are a couple of positive features that would make a metal roof a great choice:

  • One big feature is a metal roof’s energy efficiency. You will lower your annual energy costs significantly compared to asphalt shingle roofing systems. If you have a metal roof, you won’t be running to turn on your cooling and heating systems nearly as much. You’ll want to install  some extra insulation to help take even more advantage of this energy efficiency.
  • Environmental friendliness is another big reason to choose a metal roofing system. They can be completely recycled at the end of their long lifespan, so you won’t have a bunch of waste filling up landfills when their broken down and taken off. So, as you can see, if you can afford the investment, upgrading to a metal roof should be an easy choice. You’ll save a lot of money in the long run and you can’t get better protection for your property or its occupants. They also have long, comprehensive warranties that will justify your decision even further.

Make an Investment in Your Business With Metal Roofing

Because they last so long if they’re maintained correctly, metal roofing systems are an excellent investment. They can withstand severe weather elements, whether you’re talking about heavy rainfall, heavy snow, high winds or hail. It will last as much as 2 to 3 times as long as other options, so its worth the extra expense, which is why we say its a true investment in your business.

Commercial Metal Roof Restoration Contractors You Can Depend On

Commercial Metal Roof Restoration ContractorsThere’s a lot of metal roofing that is already installed on properties throughout the country. With more and more being added each year as it becomes more well known and popular, it has become one of the more popular roofing options for property owners and managers.

However, if you don’t maintain it properly, you will experience issues and problems that can turn into expensive repairs, just like other roofing systems.

These are the most common issues that you will encounter with a metal roof , which all result mostly from poor installation or maintenance – punctures from foot traffic, leaking from roof tears, ponding or pooling water, rust from extended direct exposure to the elements and panels blowing off in high wind conditions.

Here’s a cost effective and durable solution opposed to replacing your roof – Metal Roof Restoration.

When you have issues with your metal roof, the first thing you think of is replacing it. But, replacing your roof is a big, expensive decision that bears keeping these things in mind before following through on it:

  • 1- Replacing your roof will take up a lot of your company’s time. If you think about what you have to do to replace your roof – New metal panels, new insulation and tearing off all the existing roof materials – it can be a daunting task. All of this can take significant time, interrupting the normal operations of your business until it’s complete.
  • 2 – While it’s being replaced, the buildings interior and inventory can be exposed to the elements. You have to tear off the old material and install new panels, which will leave the building exposed as this is being accomplished. You could compromise your building’s contents unless you provide sufficient shelter or cover for them. If your contents are expensive technological components or their is a  high security concern, this could be a large expense in addition to the interruption.
  • 3 – A Metal Roof Restoration is much less expensive than a replacement. We’ve discussed a lot of the costs of roof replacement – more materials, tear-off costs, lots of labor, and disposal/landfill charges. The fact is, you can save as much as 50% with metal roof restoration over metal roof replacement.
  • 4 – There’s no guaranty that replacing your roof won’t cause the same exact problems to show up again down the road. Since an old metal roof has pretty much the same features as a new metal roof, so why not save the money and inconvenience by restoring the old one instead?
