Metal Roof Repair and Replacement

Metal roofing has continued to grow in popularity both in commercial and residential applications. Metal roof systems have one of the longest life spans of all roofing applications at around 50 years with proper maintenance and repairs. Metal roofing is also fire resistant, durable and energy efficient.

One of the downsides of a metal roof is the initial installation price with tends to be two or three times more than other types of roofing.  That’s why regular maintenance and repairs are so important for your metal roof system.

Metal Roof Repair Options

Metal Roof Replacement Options

Metal Roof Retrofit

A newer innovation for metal roof replacement is the metal roof retrofit method.  This method allows for a single ply roofing system to be installed directly over the existing metal roof system where the metal roof then becomes the roof deck.

How it Works

The area between the metal panel ribs is filled in with insulation board. This creates a flush surface.  After the infill is installed an additional layer of insulation board is installed creating a solid surface to apply the roof membrane to. Finally a new single ply membrane is installed.

One of the best solutions is OMG’s RhinoBond System. RhinoBond is an alternative membrane attachment system for TPO and PVC roofing membranes and ideal for the metal retrofit method. OMG’s RhinoBond metal retrofit method is an approved Factory Mutual system and secure the membrane without penetration.
