Why maintaining your Metal roof is vital?

A main concern of any home owner is needing to keep their roof completely water and air tight. Over time the integrity of metal roofs can become compromised for a number of reasons, however in most cases the risk of the roof failing can be sorted out with proactive maintenance and the help of some expert advice and assistance. When metal roofs fail, they can cause massive internal damage to walls and ceilings and fixtures and fittings. They can also cause rotting of frames and timber as well as encourage rising damp.

About Metal Roofs

The majority of roofs seen in Australian are pitched. The exact angle of the pitch can vary house by house and has a lot to do with the era it was construction, design choices and more. In general, roofs are pitched at 26 degrees but can vary depending on the local area and climate. The reason for this is that increasing a roofs pitch increases its surface area, and ability for water to run off in bad weather and be collected into guttering and downpipe systems for recycling or drainage. The purpose a roof is to efficiently divert water away, to eliminate the risk of leaks or damage inside the house.

Most roofs, especially modern roofs are built within a set of Australian building codes that dictate the types of materials that can be used, any mandatory features that will add to integrity and safety as well as architectural and construction guidelines from various state and government bodies. These guidelines help to ensure that every home that is built in Australia meets a high standard.

Roof Features

Anywhere on a roof where two, three or more slopes meet require additional features to ensure they remain structurally sound and water tight. These features can include flashings, gutters, capping’s and pointing’s. In metal roofs the use of overlapping features prevents water entering the ceiling cavity.

In general, these areas of overlapping metal require special attention, especially on Metal roofs as the break in standard overlapping patterns means there is more risk of wind, water or debris breaching the roof and entering the attic or ceiling cavity which has the potential to cause serious damage to the internals of your home.

Professional Metal Roof Repair Inspection

The knowledge and expertise of a professional metal roof installer and repairer is invaluable. Only specially trained people should venture out over a visibly damaged or aging roof, so don’t risk it. At BP Roofing, we have all of the necessary safety equipment, as well as a keen understanding of safety best practices to inspect your damaged metal roof and ensure the safety of yourself and your family. Our team have been providing metal roof repair to Brisbane residents for over 25 years and can help you understand any risks and repairs that your metal roof might require.

Assessing Your Home | Metal Roof Repairs

It is best practices for home owners to routinely carry out an inspection of their metal roofs for damage, especially after periods of heavy winds or rain, and major storms, which are common in our local Brisbane area. Some problems start out small and barely noticeable but have the potential to worsen in a very short amount of time. Don’t wait until it’s too late. The team at BP Roofing can help you understand exactly what you need to inspect to ensure your Metal roof is always in top condition.

If carrying out an inspection of your metal roof, you should check the following:

  • Overall condition of metal/Colourbond.
  • Any warping pop rivets or screws or rust or oxidisation.
  • Any damage caused to gutters or down pipes.
  • Any blockages in gutters or downpipes.
  • Metals that may have moved or bent during wind storms.

How to Spot Metal Roof Damage

The first thing you should do as a home owner is check for any immediate and visible signs of damage to metal sheeting. Missing or bent metal sheets present a risk to the overall integrity of your roof and will need to be repaired as soon as possible. Similarly, downpipes, gutters and fascias should always be free from damage. If you do spot any damage it could symptomatic of a much larger problem.

In addition, homeowners should check all cappings and flashings to ensure that severe wind or rain has not done anything to compromise the integrity of these essential roof features.

Stripping Metal Roofs

In some cases, whether for aesthetic design reasons, architectural reasons, or for structural integrity reasons, a metal roof needs to be removed entirely and replaced, rather than simply repaired. The team at BP Roofing have been providing new metal roofs and metal roof repairs for over 25 years and counting. We are local Brisbane residents and understand how the unique Brisbane, Queensland climate can take its toll on your tin, metal or Colourbond roof.

Metal roof renewal

A Metal roof, when looked after proactively can provide twenty years or more of uninterrupted protection for a home owner. However, a lack of regular maintenance could mean the roof on your home could have a much shorter lifespan.

Over time, metal roofs and features can deteriorate in the harsh weather that is common to Brisbane and surrounding suburbs. This is completely normal and won’t cause any harm as long as the weathering and damage is noted quickly and repaired proactively. Rarely is it necessary to replace an entire metal roof on a home. When owners take time to care for their Metal roof and take the time to property inspect, care for and repair any problems over its lifetime, they can be sure they will not run into any major problems that could have otherwise been avoided.

Benefits of Metal Roofing Brisbane
