Do metal roofs need to be inspected regularly? We know that installing a metal roof on your home is one of the best, long-term investments you can make. In fact, metal roofs last for multiple decades.
What’s more, Mountaintop Metal Roofing is so confident in the quality of our metal roofing products, that we even provide a lifetime, non-prorated transferable warranty.
These roofs require little to no maintenance. That means you won’t need to worry about replacing shingles, cleaning off moss, or removing accumulated tree debris.
But does that mean that you should eliminate inspection completely?
While metal roofing is meant to stand the test of time, damage can occur in some instances. So, you should keep an eye out for anything that may be out of the ordinary.
Usually, the only problems that happen with metal roofs are damage from storms, high winds, and other weather events, animals, or substantial water buildup.
Be sure to look for rust spots near the flashing.
Sometimes hail and falling tree branches can cause metal roof punctures, too. Fortunately, this is not common.
Still, you should plan to look at your roof once a year. When it comes to an annual inspection, your roofing company (always hire a professional roofing contractor!) is in the best position to examine parts of the roof, the roofing materials, the metal panels, and more.
They will know what to look for and can advise you on regular maintenance for your standing seam metal roof or other profile.
Metal roof maintenance is a good way to head off potential problems and necessary roof repairs. And while it’s unlikely that there will be a roof leak, as there might be with asphalt shingles, for instance, it’s still a good idea to check.
In other words, just because you don’t have to stay on top of maintenance as you do with a traditional roofing system, you should still have a roofing professional take a checkup on an annual basis.
