Metal Roof Leaks
Under certain conditions, metal roof leaks may occur in certain areas. In some instances, leaks happen because a metal roof wasn't installed properly. However, the majority of leaks are related to details with how your roofing system was finished. For instance, your roof may have horizontal seams that run perpendicular to standing seams. Separation may occur over time, resulting in a leak. We can also fix metal roof leaks due to:
- Rusted steel nails or screws on individual panels
- Openings around flashing
- Metal roof oxidation if the roof's protective coating wears away
- Fasteners backing out
- Weakness around a rising wall

Metal roofs can last for many years when well cared for. We recommend having your metal roof inspected at least once a year so potential problems can be detected ASAP. Our approach to metal roof maintenance includes:
