The Qualities of a Good Metal Roofing Installation

 

Metal roofing is becoming one of the most desirable choices of roofing material. After all, it’s durable, affordable and energy-efficient qualities are what homeowners are looking for in their roofing systems. However, like every roofing material, metal roofs have to be properly installed in order to last long. Thankfully, there are ways you can determine if your roofing system was properly attached to your home.

In this post, commercial construction services Allied Construction Services discuss the tell tale signs of a good metal roofing installation.

Waterproofing

Waterproofing the seams, penetrations and fasteners of your metal roof is one way to ensure you have a good metal roofing installation. Since these are the parts that hold your metal roof together, protecting them from any form of corrosion due to moisture is a must if you want it to last for a long time.

Slope

Your metal roof can double as a watershed to allow the rainwater to run off it. The success of this feature, however, is dependent on the proper slope. With that in mind, make sure your metal roof’s slope is as steep as possible. Usually, the accurate slope for metal roofing systems is in excess of 2 ½:12 but there are some manufacturers who will permit application on slopes of ¼:12 or more. To install a metal roof on your building, simply turn to commercial roofing contractor Allied Construction Services.

Contractor Training and Knowledge

Of course, neither of those qualities will matter if your contractor doesn’t have the proper training and knowledge to install your metal roof in the first place. Most errors and failures in metal roofing systems often stem from workmanship blunders and improper design. With that in mind, be sure to only hire the most reputable and trustworthy contractors to install your metal roof.
