Common Metal Roof Issues
There are a few problems that commonly afflict metal roofs. Some are related to poor installation, while others are issues that develop over time with exposure to the elements:
- Poor Flashing Installation – Flashings are metal pieces used to cover joints and prevent water seeping in and causing damage. Because metal roofs easily expand and contract with fluctuating temperatures, flashings can stretch apart and become prime spots for leaks.
- Seam Failure – Due to the large size of many commercial roofs, it is common to use multiple metal roof panels to cover the length of the roof. These panels are seamed together, creating a weak spot susceptible to separation.
- Oxidation/Deterioration – Metal roofs can be made of aluminum, copper, tin, zinc, steel, or a mixture of these metals. While most include a protective coating, time and the elements can wear it away, exposing the bare metal.
- Faulty Fasteners – Metal roofs are typically adhered with neoprene or rubber washers (to seal off water) and nails or screws. Over time, some fasteners can back out due to wind or metal expansion and contraction, leaving small openings where water can enter.
