Five Benefits of Metal Roof Restoration

The process of restoring a metal roof is to remove rust, corrosion, and other contaminants. Low-pressure water jet sprays are used to remove rust and other corrosion particles. To protect the metal from further damage, a coat should be applied to it.

To restore metal roofing, you must first remove all loose material like rotten wood or flakes of iron. Next, remove all asphalt and tar from the metal. The third step involves de-greasing the metal and removing any coatings, such as paint. The last step is to apply a metal rust inhibitor, paint, or sealant.

Five benefits of metal roofing restoration on your buildings.

Reduced Costs

Metal roof restoration costs are significantly lower than new Carolina roofing. Because metal roofing is expensive, this is why restoration can be cheaper than new.

The cost of installing a metal roof depends on many factors. The total cost of a metal roof restoration depends on the size of the roof in square footage and the type of materials used. A metal roof installation costs between $5-10 per square foot, or $1,000-5,000 for a 1,000-square foot roof.

Increase Roof Lifespan

Roof restoration can prolong a roof's life span by replacing or repairing damaged or worn-out roof components. You can choose to have a partial or complete roof restoration. This will repair only the damaged areas, but will not replace any roof components.

Sealant is the most important material to use for metal roofing restoration. Sealant stops water from entering the metal. There are many sealants available, but acrylic and asphalt are the most common. These sealants can prevent water from entering the metal for as long as 10 years. Acrylic sealants can be more costly than asphalt so roofing restoration has been done with asphalt sealants.

Faster Installation Process

Because metal roofing is less labor-intensive, metal roofing restoration can be completed in a shorter time than traditional removal and installation. To replace damaged metal, only a professional is required. Replacing damaged metal takes as little as an hour. However, it can take five days to remove and install metal roofing.

High-Quality Durable Materials

A sealant is required for metal roofing restoration. This includes a stainless steel sheet or aluminum sheet. Sealant can be either silicone caulking, urethane caulking, or a combination of both. Sealant is used to seal seams on panels and protect the metal from corrosion.

Aluminum sheets are often welded to metal roofing panels to cover seams and create a smooth exterior for metal roofing restoration projects.

Flat Roofing Options

To create a new roofing system, you can install multiple materials over metal roofing materials. A single-ply roofing system such as EPDM, PVC, or TPO can be attached to metal roofing. A double-ply roofing system such as TPO can also be used to create a new roof. It can be attached to the metal roofing.
