Metal is one of the most popular roofing options available today–and with good reason. Aside from a sleek design that adds to your home’s curb appeal, it allows for reliable yet low-maintenance performance. But low-maintenance doesn’t mean no-maintenance. Like most roofing systems, this option will still require proper and regular upkeep. NC Rebuild, Inc., the area’s expert in residential gutter installation, shares how to do it.
1. Inspect the roof surface at least twice a year. You can do this in spring and fall, or promptly after a major weather event. Keep an eye out for scratches, stains, abrasions, grease and dirt. You should also check for possible denting caused by wind-blown debris or obvious seam separation. Using binoculars, perform your visual inspection from a relatively safe spot–a window overlooking the roof will do.
2. Deal with any roof damage promptly. Should you find any or all symptoms mentioned above, then you should call a trusted roofing contractor like NC Rebuild, Inc. immediately for the necessary solution. Our trained and experienced crew will conduct a comprehensive inspection of your system and solve any issues it may have with our exceptional repair and restoration services. This way, you can prevent additional damage to your metal roofing system and get the most out of its service life.
3. Clean your metal roof. Dirt, leaves and other loose debris can build up on the roof surface or the valleys. Clear them off–do this at least twice a year. If you spot any metal chips or shavings embedded into the roof coating, remove them immediately before they oxidize, which results in unsightly rust stains. What’s more, clear any overhanging tree limbs near your metal roof to avoid scratches or additional debris.
4. Schedule a comprehensive roof maintenance plan. NC Rebuild, Inc. can help you with this. Aside from residential roof repair, we can also handle your roof maintenance needs.
