Inspecting for metal roof leaks:
Metal roof leaks can be very aggravating because they tend to occur at different times of the year and are typically affected by how much snow or ice is on the roof (or in the gutters) and how cold or warm it gets.
Metal roofs can also condensate. Metal will "sweat" from the underside if the temperature and humidity are right.
Metal roofs are also not typically designed to be waterproofing structures, they are typically designed as water-shedding structures.
The gutter to roof connection are is typically very problematic. When snow falls in the gutters and the sun turns the snow in to ice the ice can "wick" its way in to the building at the eave to wall connection. This will typically manifest at leaks at the wall.
Fasteners on metal roofs can also cause issues. Metal roofs expand and contract more than any other roofing material. As the metal expands and extracts the holes of the fasteners may get bigger. This and fastener rubber liners will deteriorate and cause water ingress.
Another area of concern are the roof penetrations. Roof vents and flashing are often the cause.
And finally the seams at the panels are a common cause of metal roof leaks. Over the years, as the metal expands and contracts the seams become less water-tight.Inquire about our Edmonton roof inspections and maintenance programs. Regular maintenance of a roof system will save you considerable money over the life-time of your roof assembly.
Solving metal roof leaks and remedies:
Roof leaks are caused by so many possibilities that the remedies are many.
There are various coatings that we use. Some of which are liquid rubber, spray foam, acrylic, elastomeric and silicone. It is very important that you carefully choose the coating to be sure it has a record of performance in a cold climate such as Alberta. We see failed coatings all the time and time again customers tell us that they just didn't know.
In some instances we can simply spot fix with coatings at seams, fasteners, flashing, and at units.
Sometimes it is as simple as replacing the fasteners.
For metal roof systems that are beyond fixing we can also do recovery systems. Recovery systems are another metal roof, roof membrane, or spray foam over the existing roof.
At times the leaks are due to original installation deficiencies. In this instance our sheet metal techs do the required work.
There are many other possible repairs that should be investigated with one of our inspection staff members.
Call our office and set-up a roof inspection and we will provide you with all possible solutions and pricing.
