Simple Tips for Maintaining Your Metal Roof

Contents

Without routine maintenance, even roofing systems made from materials as durable as metal won’t last long. To help keep your metal roof in good condition, here are some simple maintenance tips to follow: 

Metal Roof

Avoid using power washers. It’s more convenient to use a power washer to wash your metal roof, but if the pressure settings are set too high or you spray it too close, it can leave dents on your metal roof. 

Trim back overhanging tree limbs. Overgrown tree limbs can scratch your metal roof’s protective coating and even dislodge some of its fasteners. Make sure to check your roof’s valleys or low-sloped areas, as leaves and other kinds of debris often get stuck in these places. 

Clean your gutters. Gutters form part of your roof’s first line of defense against the elements. By diverting rainwater to the drains, they protect your metal roof from moisture damage. However, your gutters won’t be able to do their job if there are leaves, twigs and debris clogging them. That’s why it’s important to have your gutters routinely cleaned. As a general rule, you should clean them at least twice a year, or every three months if there’s a lot of foliage near your house. 

Keep an eye on roof penetrations. Metal roof leaks usually appear near air vents and skylights. That’s why you need to keep an eye on these areas and roof penetrations in general. 

Why it’s best to let professionals handle roof maintenance. Roof inspections are an essential part of any maintenance routine. The problem is, it’s easy to miss the subtle warning signs of roof damage, and by the time the more noticeable signs are found, it’s usually too late to mitigate the damage. That’s why it’s best to let qualified roofing contractors handle roof maintenance and inspections.

Working with Bone Dry Roofing was best decision I made to deal with a leak in my roof. They took their time to correctly determine where the leak was coming from and the best way to fix it! And, they did! Everyone I worked with from their staff was awesome! I will definitely use them again!!

Initially called this company for a quote because I saw their truck in Denver and the driver used their blinker. Compared to 2 other roofing companies their quote was in the middle and was later adjusted for less materials being used than expected. After signing the contract they were ready to start the next week on a garage roof and home roof repair (weather permitting). The team was respectful of our home & our neighbor’s. Throughout the entire process the communication was great. Highly recommend!

We are so happy with the service we received from Bone Dry Roofing! Nick came out quickly and did an inspection and a quick estimate for us! The repairs were done quickly! Fernando did an amazing job! He was very friendly. We have a very pitched roof and so I was very impressed with his bravery. ( would not catch me up there ever)<br /> <br /> Very happy customer and highly recommend!
