As an experienced metal building contractor, Metalguard can diagnose your metal roof issues and develop the best solution for you. We can replace or repair only what is necessary. Not all metal roofs require a complete replacement. Therefore, sometimes the most effective solution for our clients includes a partial metal roof replacement, and repairs on the rest of the existing metal roof. This extends the life of the metal building and provides the best value for client.

Metal Building Repairs

These photos show a current Metalguard project that involves replacing part of the metal roof. This metal roof was leaking, so to fix the issue, we sealed the lower metal roof and upper metal roof. First, because of a previous coating, we installed a larger amount of new material to cover the old material.  Then, on the rest of the existing metal roof panels our team sealed the fasteners. The photos show the repaired metal roof. The light colored areas are new metal roof panels, and the white dots are sealed fasteners. Replacing where necessary, and repairing the rest of the roof represented the best value for the client.

We recommend fixing broken metal roof panels and performing maintenance as needed to extend the life of your metal building. Fixing the broken sections of the metal roof and performing maintenance on the rest, results in extended life for metal buildings.

Metal Building Roof Inspection Process

Metal roof repairs include thorough inspections. The Metalguard team got down on their hands and knees to find this leak in the metal roof. One issue we found was a crack on the top of a high metal rib.  The rust around the two slits, indicates the metal roof panel damage occurred some time ago.  The top of the metal high rib is a small area 1” wide, consistent with expectations for a small leak. Our team caulked the crack in the metal roof to restore the metal roof panel integrity.
