Leaking Metal Roof Repair

Metal roofing is typically made from steel, and can come in different options of roofing systems, like a standing seam metal roof.

Each type of metal roofing material and system comes with its own set of pros and cons. Overall, metal roofing is one of the most durable types of roofing you’ll find.

For the most part, your metal roof won’t require much upkeep or even replacement for a long time. A metal roof lifespan averages between 40 and 70 years.

However, if you experience a leaking roof it could be due caused by the following:

Metal Roof Leak Issue #1: Fastener Issues

As the roof ages, the fasteners can become loose, leaving gaps in the metal seam laps.

Metal Roof Leak Issue #2: Missing Paneling

This could have been caused during time of installation. It it was done poorly, it will be prone to shifting with high winds.

Metal Roof Leak Issue #3: Open Seam Laps

Open seam laps can cause leaks and lead to structural damage.
