With your roof being one of the most significant parts of your house, it requires regular inspection, maintenance, and repair. Various conditions, like wind, rain, snow, hail, and heat, constantly expose your roof. These conditions lead to damage and deterioration and can cause serious long-term issues with your home if not handled properly. When installed correctly, the level of upkeep needed to maintain a metal roof is generally minimal, luckily. Miller Custom Exteriors guarantees that our knowledgeable and experienced roofing contractors will do the job right, or they will do it over.

As a homeowner, it is always a scary thought that something will happen to your roof. This could cause property damage as water could get into the damaged roof, creating mold and mildew issues, wet walls, and more. Some potential problems with metal roofing are leaking, denting, scuffing, scratching, degradation, and galvanic erosion. You should perform maintenance and inspect your roof once per year to ensure there are no potential issues you would need to fix. The best way to do this is to call a professional to look at your roof, preferably the company that installed it, so they can quickly identify the issues and plan to fix them if there are any. This is the best way to prolong the life of your metal roof.

Here are some things you can do in between inspections of your roof to keep it looking great while also taking care of it:

  • Remove leaves or debris stuck in valleys and other dead spots. This can scratch and stain your roofing system.
  • Remove branches or sticks touching your roof. This could lead to scratching or scuffing of your roof’s paint, and that could be a costly fix.
  • You want to ensure your metal roof isn’t touching another kind of metal. While this is rare, a reaction could start a corrosion issue if it does happen.
  • Look for scratches, scuffs, chipping, flaking, or excessive chalking and fading. It is essential to check for these so you can take care of them immediately to avoid any further issues.
