Metal roofing has a lot of pros to it. It can be extremely durable and offer advanced protection against the elements. But nothing lasts forever, and nothing can withstand all types of dangers the natural world throws at it. Eventually, your metal roof is going to be in need of some repairs. You have a choice, you can pay for repair options that you’ll have to immediately repair again when it doesn’t last, or you can invest in a fix that’s going to last and keep your metal roof going for as long as possible.

Below are some of the common problems you’ll have with a metal roof during the years that Duro-Shield can help you solve.
Rust and Corrosion
Considering the nature of metal roofs, this is going to be the most common issue that will inevitably arise as time goes on. Moisture and steel don’t mix. And, depending on your climate, you’re looking at rain, snow fall, hail, and high humidity waiting in all seasons to do damage to your roof and prematurely age it. Eventually, if not handled, this rust and corrosion will lead to structural problems and gaping holes in your roof.
The steel in roofs is going to expand and contract in different types of weather throughout the year. The result is going to be popped seams as the adhesive breaks or is stretched as well as cracks along the material. This expansion and contraction can also loosen screws, sealants, and cause misalignment in roof placement. This eventually leads to structural problems as well as leaks.
Roofs that are not properly fitted to a roof or sealed can lead to interior leaks, even when the weather is sunny and clear outside. When a roof has gaps in its placement, it can cause the warmer temperatures from indoors to condensate on the underside of the roof. The result is moisture build up that can begin to leak inside at any time.
