Metal roofing is one of the more widely used roofing options. It is used commonly in both commercial and residential properties, as it is durable, inexpensive and easy to install. If your metal roof is suffering from some wear and tear, it may need to be restored. This is more involved than a quick patch job to plug a hole, and it helps the metal roofing to lasts much longer and withstand more abuse in the coming years.
With the right restoration job, you can take a roof that is near the end of its lifespan and add a few more years onto it, squeezing extra value out of your investment. You can also take a roof that is in relatively good shape and protect it against the elements and against various kinds of damage and wear to ensure that it lasts much longer.
When to Have a Restoration Done?
If you have noticed that your roof is not working like it should anymore and is not as energy efficient or as secure, then a restoration may be in order. Roofs that are bent in places or that have small holes or dents throughout them will not be as strong and will not be able to hold up as well against severe weather.
After a severe storm, you should check your metal roof for signs of damage. If it is bent or panels are peeled back, then something needs to be done. Otherwise, the damage is only going to get worse. Sometimes effecting repairs will not be enough and a restoration is in order.
This is usually required when a roof is starting to show its age, such as when the metal is rusting or is contently bending, flapping loose and falling apart. A full restoration can take that roof from a sorry state to pristine condition.
If you are having to repair your roof often or deal with constant rust, then that can indicate that a restoration is the best way forward as well.
Talk to your roofer about restorations and whether that is the best choice in your situation. You can have a roofing professional come out to your property and assess the condition of the roof. Your roofer will tell you if a restoration is what it needs or if you need to re-roof or simply have some repairs done.
