Repairing and Restoring a Flat Metal Roof
Flat Metal roof panels and standing-seam metal roof systems are another popular choice in commercial and industrial roofs. While flat metal roof systems are less susceptible to roof leaks, they still deteriorate over time, causing the caulk and seams to break apart. Seamless roofing systems will eliminate these seams with a flat metal roof repair, leaving you with a seamless waterproof flat metal roof repair membrane.
While a flat metal roof system should withstand its ten to fifteen year warranty, it will start to deteriorate at the end of its useful life. At this point, you will either try a flat metal roof repair or a total flat metal roof replacement. The former will only fix the problem for a short period before you have to repair it again, and the latter will be very expensive. A seamless flat metal roof repair membrane can go directly on to your existing flat metal roof – which will repair all damages at a fraction of the cost of replacing the roof. Don’t replace your flat metal roof when a seamless roofing system can make it stronger than when it was first installed.
If your metal roof is ten or more years old, it may be time for a metal roof repair. Contact Austin Roofing & Waterproofing for a free flat metal roof inspection to make sure you’re not caught off guard by unwanted roof leaks.
