A metal roof installation is an expense most homeowners don’t see coming. We all know how important is to keep a roof over our family’s head, but we rarely think about the importance of maintenance. Poorly maintaining an aluminum or steel surface can leave it vulnerable to the effects of inclement weather and more likely to deteriorate from the wear and tear of age. Davis Roofing can perform a metal roof installation and help you maintain your investment for years to come.
The Issues We See
The older your metal surface is, the greater the chances are that it was not treated during manufacturing, as this type is today. And while the kind you have may be designed to shed water quickly, over time it will eventually fall victim to the effects of moisture. Likewise, steel fasteners that were left uncoated may rust, and washers will break down in the sun. Today’s metal roof installation materials and coatings will give you a covering that could end up being be the last one you ever buy.
As an expert roofing contractor, certified by some of the top manufacturers, we know the importance of precision. When the panels are not installed with appropriate overlapping, they can leave gaps that allow water and wind underneath. Although there is an underlayment for additional moisture protection, continuous exposure to moisture weakens it. Because of the way the panels are overlapped for maximum water shed, if wind gets underneath one panel, it can lift it. Sometimes repairs can be made, but with damage like that, metal roof installation would be your only option.
Even with the best materials and expert installation, you can still experience serious damage that requires metal roof installation. When severe thunderstorms and tornadoes strike, your durable metal covering is just as vulnerable as any other roofing surface. Large hail can dent flashings and bend fasteners making the panels even more susceptible to the effects of high winds. Even if you’ve maintained it well over the years, there may be nothing else you can do but call us after the weather.

Metal roofing products have changed over the years and can now be designed to replicate the appearance of other materials like cedar shake, asphalt shingles and even heavy tile and slate. Because they are so lightweight, they can give you the look of tile without the expense of having to reinforce your home to bear the weight. They are even fire and insect resistant.
Choosing a metal roof installation is good for the planet. Like most metal products, roofing materials are recyclable. They are also extraordinarily energy efficient and create savings on your monthly utility bills. When you choose metal, you make an investment that will pay for itself in savings.
