Metal roofs are a great choice for residences or commercial properties. That have a low cost of installation, are great in the elements, are naturally fire resistant, and plenty of other benefits. But, like any roof, they’re not made to last forever and eventually time and wear will catch up with them. If you’ve got a metal roof that’s more than a few years old, chances are it’s in needy of hefty repairs or even replacement.
Metal roofs, while great for many reasons, are susceptible to a lot of unique problems that make maintenance a hassle if these problems aren’t handled quickly. That includes loose seams, rust and corrosion, interior leaks, ice buildup, and more.
Luckily, Duro-Shield can offer a lot of solution to the many unique challenges that come with upkeep on a metal roof.
Below are some reasons why Duro-Shield could be right for your roofing needs if your metal roof has started wearing down.
What is Duro-Shield?
While normal metal roofing replacement involves tearing out an existing metal roof, Duro-Shield is applied directly over your metal deck with cut to fit insulation, prefabricated membranes to adhere insulation to the roof, and prefabricated flashings for stacks and penetrations for temperature control. You get a tight seal and new roof, without having to deal with tearing out your old one.
While Duro-Shield can be a great long-term solution to your metal roofing needs across the board, it’s not one-size fits all. Each Duro-Shield system is unique and customized to your roof and the needs of your home. Our experts will do an assessment and determine what needs to be done to ensure your roofing system matches perfectly to your roofing needs. This means appropriate measurements, materials, layers, and more.
We aim not just to protect your roof, but also your budget. This means keeping down your energy costs through our expert and customized insulation work and highly reflective membrane. This will also save you money in the long run when it comes to maintenance and adjustments.
How is Duro-Last installed?
Duro-Shield applies directly over your existing roof along with insulation to fill gaps and necessary penetration points for heat exhaust or other uses. There’s no tearing your roof, simply installation over your existing roof.
How do I know if my roof needs to be replaced?
Generally, your metal roof will begin to rust and begin to drip through the seam points. You will also notice your energy bills may have spiked. All this can be a sign that you need to replace your metal roof.
