Points to consider before metal roofing restoration

Metal roofing restoration is a special procedure that includes removing rust, corrosion, and other contaminants from a metal roof. This is achieved by using a low-pressure water jet spray that removes both the rust and corrosion particles. After this process, a coat of paint is applied to the metal to protect it from any possible future damage.

Before starting the metal roofing restoration, it is vital to consider some facts.  Importantly, there are several benefits to having metal roofing restoration for your buildings. We have discussed this topic with professional roofers from DNB Construction LLC. Here are the main advantages of metal roof restoration.

No.1 – Metal roofing restoration is significantly less expensive than installing a new metal roof. The cost of a new metal roof installation can vary depending on the roof’s size, materials used, installation type, and location. In contrast, restoration only requires repairing or replacing damaged or worn-out parts of the metal roof, which is a more cost-effective solution for every owner.

No.2 – Metal roofing restoration can extend the roof’s lifespan. The restoration process can be done partially or completely, depending on the extent of the damage. The most crucial element in metal roofing restoration is the sealant, which prevents water from penetrating the metal. According to certified roofers, asphalt and acrylic sealants are the most popular and can protect the metal from corrosion for up to 10 years.

No.3 – Metal roofing restoration has a faster installation process than removing and installing a completely new metal roof.  So, metal roofing repair requires only replacing damaged metal, which can take as little as an hour. In contrast, removing and installing a novel metal roof can take up to five days, depending on the size of the roof and other important factors.

No.4 – During metal roofing restoration, high-quality and durable materials are used, such as aluminum, stainless steel sheets, and a sealant. Usually, DNB Construction LLC’s technicians weld the aluminum sheet onto the metal roofing panels. That is the best way to cover the seams. Plus, they provide a smooth exterior surface for the entire metal roofing restoration process.

No. 5 – There are many more options for flat roofing when restoring a metal roof. Single-ply roofing systems, such as EPDM or PVC, can be installed and secured to the metal roofing. Alternatively, a double-ply roofing system, such as TPO, can be installed and secured to the metal roofing to create a new roof.
