4 Warning Signs You Need to Replace a New Metal Roof

A set of high-quality metal roof is one of the best investments you can have for your residential or commercial unit. Although metal roofs are much more durable than tile, slate or asphalt shingle roofs and can typically last for decades with minimal repair, do you know when you need to change a new metal roof?

Here are a few warning signs that it may be time to replace your metal roof.

Warning Signs to Look Out For

#1 Your roof has become rusty 

New metal roof panels are covered with a layer of protective coating during the manufacturing process to reduce the formation of rust on the surface. Metal panels are highly durable, but weather and environmental factors can cause the protective layer to erode.

The impact of wind, storms, moisture and other elements in the air may corrode the metal roof coating, causing it to rust. If your metal panels start to show signs of rust and deterioration, it is time to replace your metal roof.

#2 Your roof shows signs of leaking 

A leaking roof is another sign that your metal roof is failing. Leaky roofs can be caused by cracks or gaps in the metal panels, improperly installed hardware or other damages to the metal roofs. 

If you notice that your metal roof is leaking, you should immediately get it checked by a professional or to have it replaced, as leaks can also cause other problems such as rust or mould.

#3 Your roof panels start to loosen

The age of your metal roof, surrounding weather and environmental conditions can cause metal roof panels to become loose over time. Loose roof panels is a potential hazard to inhabitants as they can no longer effectively protect your safety and your building from possible harmful agents such as pests or leaks. 

Before the damage worsens, you should seek professional help to replace your metal roof as soon as possible. Select from Thung Hing’s wide range of metal roofing options to suit your building needs.

#4 There are signs of interior damage 

If you start noticing visible signs of damage to the interior of your building, then it is definitely time to replace your metal roof with a new one. It may be patches of water leaks due to cracks in your roofing panels, and if that happens, water can get in and not only damage your ceiling, but also your walls, causing moulds in your interior and other foundation issues.

一套优质的金属屋顶是您的住宅或商业单位最佳的投资建材之一。尽管金属屋顶比瓷砖、石板或沥青瓦屋顶更耐用,并可用上数十年而需鲜少维修工作,但您是否知道何时需更换新的金属屋顶吗?

以下一些迹象与警号,提醒您是时候该更换新的金属屋顶了。

您需注意的警号与迹象

#1 您的屋顶已经生锈 

在制造过程中,新的金属屋顶面板都会涂盖一层保护涂层,以减低金属屋顶表面生锈的可能。尽管金属面板非常耐用,但是恶略天气或其他环境因素会导致保护层腐蚀。

疾风,暴风雨,空气中的湿气和其他元素都有可能腐蚀金属屋顶的保护涂层,导致屋顶生锈。若您的金属屋顶面板开始出现生锈或变质的迹象,那就该更换金属屋顶了。

#2 您的屋顶有漏水的迹象

屋顶漏水是您的金属屋顶开始损坏的另一个迹象。屋顶漏水可能是因为屋顶面板裂开有缝隙,屋顶安装不正确或其他屋顶问题而导致。

若发现金属屋顶漏水,应立即找专业人员检查或更换,因为漏水还会引起其他问题,例如生锈或发霉。

#3 屋顶板已松动

金属屋顶的使用年限,周围的天气或环境条件都有可能导致金属屋顶面板随着时间的流逝而变的松动。屋顶面板松动更可能对住户造成潜在的危害,因为它不能再有效保护住户的安全与您的建筑免受腐蚀或害虫等有害物的侵害。

在金属屋顶损坏程度加剧前,您应赶紧寻求专业帮助,尽快更换它。东兴集团提供一系列金属屋顶选择,以满足各种建筑项目的需求。

金属屋顶的持久耐用性及低维修费使其备受住宅和商业用途的青睐。但是时间久了,再优质的金属屋顶也有需更换的一天。
