Metal roofs are very durable and will last from 40 to 70 years! No wonder why they remain the top choice among facility owners and managers in Orlando, FL. However, once a metal roofing system is near the end of its serviceable lifespan, it may begin to show signs that it needs to be replaced.

If your commercial building has a metal roofing system that has been in place for decades, pay attention to the following signs that you may need a new metal roof:

Expanding screw holes

The screw holes in a metal roof gradually expand as the metal expands. This results in two major issues; a) they let the water under the metal and end up causing significant water damage to the deck, and b) once the holes are wider than the screw heads, they can no longer keep the metal panels in place. A commercial roof inspection can identify this problem and let you know when it is time to replace your roof.

Buckling panels

Incorrect roof installation or weather damage can result in buckling (or bending) metal panels and necessitate a roof replacement. An Orlando roofing contractor can detect metal panels buckling by examining them from the rooftop.

Joints in bad condition

If there is pitting, rusting, and corrosion along the joint lines, it indicates that the metal roof joints are in a bad condition. If left unattended, this problem can lead to significant water damage to the deck.

Waterlogged decking

Once a roof becomes waterlogged, it does not take too long before the signs of a water-damaged roof — such as mold and water spots on ceilings — are seen on the inside of a building. Contact a professional in commercial roofing in Orlando to replace your roof as soon as possible.

Well, there you have it: four indicators that your metal roof needs to be replaced. If you noticed any of these, call a professional roofing contractor in Orlando, FL, and get your roof replaced!
