The Louisville Top Choice Roofing team in St. Matthews, KY, understands that property owners are always looking for ways to save money and protect their commercial buildings. A metal roof restoration is a cost-effective alternative to a complete replacement. However, not all metal roofs are good candidates for restoration. Once we have gone through the roof inspection, we can better determine whether a restoration is the right service for you. To learn more, call us today at (502) 681-7686!
One of the first things to consider is your roof’s age. The newer the roof is, the more likely a restoration will positively affect your roof. With age and the normal wear and tear, metal becomes thinner and it’s much more challenging to protect it from rust and corrosion.
Roof decking plays a crucial role in the success of a metal roof restoration project. A decking in poor condition won’t be able to support the additional weight from the restoration materials if it is weakened enough, and it might buckle under the weight of additional materials. Due to this reason, your roof’s decking needs to be thoroughly examined before any restoration process. If the roof decking is significantly damaged, then it might be better to completely replace it.
Another factor when considering a restoration is your roof’s overall condition. If your roof has a few isolated areas of damage, such as rust or small leaks, it may be a viable candidate for restoration. However, if the roof has extensive damage, such as widespread rust or large leaks, it may need a replacement.
Before we restore your roof, we will inspect it for roof coatings. If coatings are not applied correctly, they can negatively impact the restoration process by either counteracting the chemicals or reacting with the chemicals. However, if the coating is in good condition, it could further aid the restoration process. If it is in poor condition, we must remove it to ensure the restoration properly adheres to the roof.
