Metal roofs are long lasting and durable products. However, they do require periodic maintenance and repair. Metal roofs experience expansion and contraction forces that cause delaminating in sealants. These forces and sun exposure cause the neoprene washers on the fasteners to break down over time, and they need to be replaced periodically.
If you need metal roof repair in Red Deer, call the experts at Cooper Roofing. We would be pleased to assess the condition of your metal roof and advise you on possible repair and maintenance solutions available.
Common Roof Problems & Solutions
Sealants dry out over time and cracking occurs. Caulking at storm collars cracks and deteriorates. Electrical outlet boxes need to be re-filled after a certain time period. Laps in metal gutters need to be re-sealed. Foam enclosures that are exposed to UV rays need to be replaced. Ridge caps need to be repaired by being re-sealed or replaced after an extended time period. Protective coatings are a cost-effective solution for many of these metal roofing problems.
At Cooper Roofing, we offer two different types of metal roof coatings. One offers protection and colour for metal roofs and one is used to repair metal roofs. The coatings reduce costly patching and expensive re-applications. They have a high resistance to acids, alkali and salts. The coatings are thermally stable and are not affected by temperature changes; they exhibit excellent abrasion resistance and superb adhesion to a wide variety of surfaces.
Applications can be used for metal buildings and roofs, flashing and gutters, modified and BUR (build-up roofs), and concrete surfaces.
Custom Flashing for Your Roof
The flashing on your roof helps direct the flow of water around various openings, such as windows or chimneys. Without the flashing under the roofing materials in these specific places, water would be able to seep into your home, leading to material deterioration, moisture problems and even structural damage.
When you get a new roof or roofing repairs from Cooper Roofing, you can also get custom flashing. We create rust-resistant metal flashing that will fit perfectly into any crevice or joint on your roof to help prevent water from getting into your home.
