Metal Roofs are long-lasting and are easy to maintain. However due to the effects of weathering there are certain areas that are important to watch.
Rust is always a concern with metal and that is why metal roofs have a protective coating over them. It’s a seal that prevents rusting. So it’s very important that the coating remains in top condition. It can wear down over time, it can get scratched or chipped.
Metal roofs are installed using panels, which means they must be connected together in some way. Ideally the panels are locked together so there are no exposed fasteners or seams. Some metal roofs are not installed this way and they do have exposed seams and fasteners. It’s important these be checked regularly for rust and splits or openings.
The big caution with metal roofs is how slippery they can be. It is imperative that anyone who goes on a metal roof be properly trained and often must be harnessed. If there is any moisture on the roof of any kind it will be slippery. Even a dry roof is slippery compared to any other roof type.
