Tell Me About Commercial Metal Roofs

October 13, 20233 min read

Commercial metal roofs are renowned for their durability and longevity. However, like any roofing system, they can develop issues over time that require repairs to ensure they continue to perform their protective function. In this blog post, we'll delve into the world of commercial metal roof repairs, exploring common problems, solutions, and the importance of timely maintenance.


Common Commercial Metal Roof Issues:

  • Leakage: One of the most prevalent issues in metal roofs is leaks. Leaks can occur due to factors like loose fasteners, punctures, or improperly sealed seams. Identifying the source of a leak is essential for effective repairs.

  • Rust and Corrosion: Although commercial metal roofs are designed to resist rust, prolonged exposure to harsh environmental conditions can lead to corrosion. Rust can weaken the metal and compromise the roof's integrity.

  • Loose or Missing Fasteners: Over time, fasteners that secure the metal panels in place can become loose or fall out. This can result in loose panels that are vulnerable to wind damage and water infiltration.

  • Denting and Impact Damage: Severe weather, falling debris, or foot traffic can cause dents in metal roofing. These dents can create vulnerabilities and, if left unaddressed, may lead to water intrusion.

The Repair Process:

  • Inspection: The first step in commercial metal roof repair is a thorough inspection. Roofing professionals will identify areas of concern, assess the extent of the damage, and determine the best repair strategy.

  • Cleaning: Before repairs can begin, the roof must be cleaned to remove dirt, debris, and any contaminants. This ensures proper adhesion of repair materials.

  • Sealing Leaks: Repairing leaks often involves sealing affected areas with appropriate sealants, such as silicone or urethane. In some cases, sections of the roof may need to be replaced to address extensive damage.

  • Fastener Replacement: Loose or missing fasteners are replaced, and all fasteners are tightened to secure the metal panels in place. This step is crucial for preventing further damage.

  • Rust Treatment: If rust is present, it must be treated before repairs. Rust is typically removed, and a protective coating or primer is applied to prevent further corrosion.

  • Dent Repair: Dents are repaired through a process known as "paintless dent repair." This technique involves gently massaging the dented area to restore its original shape without damaging the paint finish.

Preventive Maintenance:

Preventing extensive commercial metal roof repairs is possible through regular maintenance. This includes:

  • Scheduled Inspections: Regular roof inspections, typically twice a year, can identify issues early, allowing for prompt repairs.

  • Cleaning: Keeping the roof clean of debris and dirt minimizes the risk of damage.

  • Sealant Application: Reapplying sealants as needed to maintain watertight seals around penetrations, seams, and flashings.

Commercial metal roof repairs are a vital aspect of maintaining the integrity and longevity of your roofing system. Regular inspections, prompt repairs, and preventive maintenance can extend the life of your roof and protect your valuable assets. If you suspect issues with your commercial metal roof, it's best to consult with a professional roofing contractor experienced in metal roof repairs to ensure that the necessary repairs are performed correctly and effectively. Remember, a well-maintained roof is a valuable asset for any business.
