Importance of Prompt Metal Roof Repairs
If your metal roof is leaking, it's critical to find the source of the leak and get it repaired as quickly as possible. Catching the leak early will reduce the price of repairing it.
Water is the enemy when it comes to roofing—a small leak can turn into a big issue if it isn't addressed properly. Compared to the cost of repairing extensive water damage, the cost of repairing a metal roof is modest. You could end up requiring a complete roof replacement, new ceilings, insulation, structural repairs, and/or damaged siding replacement if a leak is not properly fixed in a timely manner.
The most common areas to inspect for roof damage include:
- Low-slope areas
- Areas prone to ponding and near gutters (i.e., ice dams)
- Seams between metal panels
- Fasteners, flashings near vents/chimney
- Overlapping metal panels
Other more obvious reasons for metal roofing damage include fallen trees, hail, and wind-blown debris, as well as normal wear-and-tear.
