One of the main reasons why metal roofs are so widely used is because of their strength and durability. With proper maintenance, they can last up to 50 years! However, just like any other roofing material, they get damaged over time. Here are 4 signs your roof needs to be replaced soon:
Rust is a good indication that the protective coating on your roof has deteriorated. Once the coating is gone, moisture and water come into direct contact with the metal, which causes to rust in the long term.
Your roof leaking is one of the first signs that your roof is damaged. This may be the result of improper installation but also of your roof getting fragile because of rust and moisture. You know it’s time to replace your roof when it no longer protects your home from weather conditions like rain.
Your metal roof looks old
With time, your metal roof will lose some of its colour and might look ‘dull’ and old. Many people opt for metal roofs not only for their durability, but for the looks too. Different colours and styles add charm to your home. When your roofing no longer looks the way you would like it to be, you should consider replacing it.
Your roof has reached the end of its life
How old is your existing roof? Proper maintenance and care will help extend the lifespan of your metal roof but certainly won’t make it last forever. If your roof has lasted you decades and starts to eventually wear out with time, it’s high time to consider getting replacements.
