A metal roof can add value to your home and there are many colors to compliment your home's style.
While a metal roof is a low maintenance option, you need to be sure the job is done correctly. Many roofers do not install a metal roof properly. The most common issue is that the screws are put in the wrong place. If the panels are fastened improperly, it immediately voids the warranty. The screws belong in the flat area, between the ribs. When the screws are in the rib, some will be too tight and crush the rib. This will draw water in. When driving around, I see about 1 in 4 roofs done wrong.
Another common problem is flashing done incorrectly. Below are a few examples of bad work.
Flashing around the chimney is a frequent place that the roof leaks. Many roofers caulk the flashing to the chimney but it needs to be bent and stuck into a cut groove in the masonry.
Here is some of our work. A metal roof should be neat and clean.
If you get a fair amount of snow, a snowguard is a good idea to protect your gutters. Mark is installing a continuous snowguard here.
