There are over 60 billion square feet of metal roofing in place in the United States and a couple billion more are installed every year. If you own or manage a commercial building, there’s a good chance a structural standing seam metal roof is on your building.
When it comes to metal roofing, hot and cold weather extremes, moisture/precipitation, insulation challenges, and UV exposure can cause loose seams, cracked penetrations, rust, corrosion, condensation, and ultimately roof leaks. While there are many quick fixes to these issues, they won’t solve the problem and can lead to larger, big-ticket maintenance and repairs down the road.
At Complete Commercial Roofing, we’re experts at retrofitting structural metal roofs with single-ply membrane roofing systems. This offers a number of advantages over other “short term” alternatives, like sealants or spray foam.
Single-ply systems are installed right over the existing roof deck and include additional layers of insulation to improve energy efficiency, reduce the potential for interior condensation, and provide a smooth surface for the installation. A single-ply retrofit can protect your building for years to come against rain, temperature changes, interior drips, ice build-up, as well as rust and corrosion. It can be installed for much less than the cost of a replacement metal roof and is a better long-term solution than sealants, coatings, or foam.
