Maintenance of a Corrugated Metal Roof in DFW Weather
The weather in DFW isn’t as consistent as many would like and even in one week, residents can experience rain, sunshine and even snow. With this in mind, for those living in the DFW area, it can be tricky to know what the best material to use on your home and roof is. Let’s take a look at the benefits of a corrugated metal roof and how it can be maintained.
Modern corrugated metal panels tend to be thick and offer superior corrosion-resistance, energy efficiency, and can be used on residential commercial properties. Corrugated metal roofs are more practical and longer lasting than asphalt shingle roofs. In addition, they cost much less than standing seam or metal shingles which are commonly used in roofing.
Which Materials Are Commonly Used?
Corrugated roofing panels are usually made from aluminum, galvanized steel (G-60, or G-90 steel), galvalume coated steel, or stainless steel. If you want a solution that’s long lasting and economical, galvalume steel provides an optimal combination of cost effectiveness, material longevity, and reliability.
Install a Corrugated Metal Roof
Generally, metal roofs require very little to no maintenance. This is partly due to the fact that they can be cleaned by water and are very straightforward to maintain as they rarely leak or become damaged. However, something to bear in mind is that corrugated style metal roofs that feature exposed fasteners will require fastener re-tightening every 10 to 15 years. If you want, you can repaint a metal roof to give it a fresh look, but it is not necessary, and will depend on your roof’s original coating.
