Behind The Scenes Of Retrofitting Your Commercial Metal Roof

Time has caught up to your metal roof and you’re thinking about replacing it. But wait, maybe there’s another option – an option which doesn’t involve tearing off your roof and installing a new one. We’re talking about retrofitting your metal roof.

If your facility’s metal roof is still in relatively good condition, retrofitting can provide long-lasting watertight protection, higher energy savings, and enhanced resistance to weathering without breaking the bank or disrupting your business operations.

How Retrofitting A Commercial Metal Roof Works

The process of retrofitting is not as cumbersome as you might think. First, an inspection will be performed to ensure your roof is a good candidate and see if there are any areas of damage needing to be repaired. The inspection will involve checking for:

  • Leaks
  • Loose fasteners
  • Deteriorated panel seams
  • Patch breakdown
  • Deflected panels
  • Drainage issues
  • Panel corrosion
  • Moisture problems
  • Flashing problems

The roofing contractor will then perform necessary repairs and remove all loose materials. Once the prep work is done, insulation will be inserted between the metal ribs on the roof. Then an additional layer of insulation will cover the metal ribs to create a smooth surface. Finally, we wrap the entire roof in a single-ply roof system to create a watertight roof. A final inspection will be performed to verify all the necessary repairs were made and the retrofit was done correctly.

How Long Do Roof Retrofits Last?

The life expectancy of metal roof retrofits will vary based on product quality and the specified thickness.

Is Retrofitting Your Metal Roof Worth it?

Retrofitting your metal roof is not a “Band-Aid” solution. It’s an economically sound alternative to full roof replacement. A metal roof retrofit offers the following benefits:

  • Extends the life of your metal roof
  • Saves you money on materials, labor, and landfill expenses
  • Makes your roof watertight
  • Adds attractiveness and value to your property
  • Your roof will stand up to severe weather, extreme temperatures, and ponding water without cracking or degrading
  • Quick and easy installation process cuts down project duration
  • Can be done with little to no disruption to your building’s normal operations
