It is recommended that low slope roof systems be inspected every 1 to 3 years. Regular inspection and maintenance will increase the lifespan of your roof. Preventative roof maintenance is the least expensive and most beneficial roof maintenance you can perform. By being pro-active and catching any damage as soon as possible, you can prevent even more costly damage. Most preventative roof maintenance focuses on making sure all joints and seals are intact and roof surfacing is sufficient. Suggestions may also be given for repairing any splits, cracks and blisters before they become an issue.
Here are a few things to look for on a flat roof:
Roof repair is generally required under the following circumstances:
If you do not have your roof maintained regularly then you are probably in need of some roof repair services. Cooper Roofing provides repair services of all types. Our services include:
Flat roof repairs are more frequently required than other roof-type repairs as they are more heavily influenced and affected by climate change. Roof repair should be dealt with as hastily as possible in order to prevent the development of damage into more serious problems or the spread of problems into other areas of your building. Do not hesitate to call Cooper Roofing for a professional inspection. Our company is on call for both emergency needs and day-to-day roof repair services.
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. 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. We would be pleased to assess the condition of your metal roof and advise you on possible repair and maintenance solutions available.
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.
Metal Roof Protective Coating
Protective coatings are a cost-effective solution for many of today’s metal roofing problems. The coating reduces costly patching and expensive re-applications. These coatings 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.
Features of This Product Include:
Applications can be used for metal buildings and roofs, flashing and gutters, modified and BUR (build-up roofs), and concrete surfaces.
We back up our comprehensive roofing services with a 5-year workmanship warranty.
