Structural Standing Seam Metal Roofs
Your Metal Roof
Structural standing seam metal roofs for flat commercial buildings are practical, reliable, and long-lasting. However, time eventually catches up with metal, and rusted roof decks and leaks may start to compromise the building’s integrity.
Here are some of the most common problems that lead to leaks and larger repair and maintenance budgets:
Roof metal expansion and contraction. This movement loosens screws, pulls at seams, and causes cracks to form around stacks and other penetrations.
Rust and corrosion. Moisture’s effect on steel is well known. Snow, rainfall, and ponding water eventually cause rust and corrosion to form and holes to appear.
Interior drips. Cold temperatures chill inadequately insulated metal, causing warmer moisture vapor inside the building to condense as water or frost on the underside of steel roofing panels. Potentially causing dripping inside.
Solutions to the problems caused by aging metal roofs include sealing and coating, spray-on foam, and complete roof replacement. However, these are either temporary fixes or – in the case of replacement – very expensive.
A great alternative to any of these options is a single-ply membrane metal retrofit system, installed right over your existing metal roof. It includes additional layers of insulation to improve energy efficiency and eliminate interior condensation. It can be installed at a fraction of the cost of a replacement metal roof and is a better long-term solution than sealants, coatings, and foam.
