Misconceptions about metal roof leaks

Is your metal roof leaking? You might think it’s normal for a metal roof to leak, but we can assure you IT IS NOT!

The good news is that we know why your roof is leaking and how to fix it! Most people will assume that all metal roofs leak naturally because of how the products are designed.

However, well-made, metal roofing products should not be leaking. Instead, metal roofing products should be designed to prevent leaks, maintain storm runoff, and keep your property insulated. West coast weather is unpredictable at best, which means you need the highest quality products to keep your property in top-notch condition.

Why is my metal roof leaking?
Your metal roof might be leaking because it was installed using outdated techniques. But the more likely culprit is a poorly designed roof element, such as a skylight, vent, or wall louver. When these penetrative roof elements contain low-cost and low-quality materials, they are more likely to leak!

Luckily, we know how to fix your leaky metal roof. Because the roof leak likely comes from a penetration point, it’s easy to remedy or replace. However, it is critical to remember that leaks sometimes occur because the roof has metal accessories that do not fit the existing infrastructure. These are called prefabricated accessories, and while they may seem a better option for their low price, such elements often have adverse side effects.

We pride ourselves on creating and installing custom, metal roofing accessories, which will help you avoid a leaky roof. While a custom accessory might be more expensive upfront, it will help you save money in the long run.
