Metal Roof Repair Company Near Austin, TX
A metal roof is supposed to last for decades, so why might a metal roof need repairs? It’s a valid question but, even though a metal roof is one of the most durable options available today, certain conditions may make it necessary to have your metal roof repaired.
Some of the more common reasons we are called out for repairs are:
- Wind or Storm Damage
In Texas, it is not uncommon for strong winds to push over trees or telephone poles. Even a perfectly installed metal roof cannot withstand this scenario. Storm damage to your metal roof may cause immediate intrusion of water and would most likely be covered by your homeowner’s insurance policy. But don’t wait to call your insurance company. Green Knight ® can get the situation under control by using tarps or other temporary water proofing measures so that the potential for excessive water damage is mitigated. We can then work with your insurance company to perform the necessary repairs.
- Other Trades
There can be times when other work done to your house has to be done on the roof. The trades-person does their work and does not realize they have created an issue with the beautiful new metal roof.For example, a homeowner decides they want to install a satellite dish. The satellite company screws straight through the metal roof, causing leaks all around the satellite dish installation. In addition to potentially causing water damage, any penetration made after the installation also has the potential to void the workmanship warranty or the manufacturer’s warranty.
- Improper Installation
There’s an expression with regards to wine that says, “All Champagne is Sparkling Wine but not all Sparkling Wine is Champagne.” Well, when it comes to metal roofing, “All Metal Roofers are Roofers but not all Roofers are Metal Roofers.” It doesn’t quite flow as well but you get the point. Metal roofing is a skilled trade, requiring years of training and on the job experience. You can’t just hire a roofing generalist and expect a high-quality metal roofing installation. In fact, the Number One reason we are called out on repairs is to fix leaks due to poor installations by other generalist roofers or “low bidders.”
Our team of metal specialists do nothing but metal roofing all day, every day and there is no one more suited to make those needed repairs because of a poor installation. Here are just a couple of photos of some installation errors we’ve been called out to fix:
