Common Metal Roof Problems
There are many benefits in choosing a metal roof for your commercial business—but this popular roof type has its drawbacks, too. For starters, metal roofs are costly, though their long lifespan generally outweighs the expense in the minds of many consumers.
Because metal roofs are made of metal, they are prone to rusting and corrosion—each of which can result in leakage. Other common metal roof issues include:
- Expansion/contraction: When temperatures fluctuate, metal roofs are more prone to expansion and contraction than other roof types. When expansion and contraction occur, this can cause cracking.
- Rust: When any kind of bare metal is exposed to the elements, rusting can occur. Metal roofs are no exception.
- Leaking: Leakage is common at rusted areas and around screws on a metal roof.
- Denting: Metal roofs are prone to denting in hail and when walked on.
- Increased heating/cooling costs: Metal roofs do not insulate like some other roof types but, instead, conduct heat and cold, which can increase heating and cooling costs.
