How To Maintain Metal Roofing

How To Maintain Metal Roofing | Wando Roofing in Charleston, SC

If properly maintained, a metal roof will generally outlast nearly any other material. This is because having this particular sort of roof installed will leave you with a longer-lasting roof that requires little maintenance. 

To keep your metal roof functioning at its best, there are a few things you can do. These recommendations apply to all kinds of roofs, including your metal roof. The five most important maintenance procedures you may follow to maintain your metal roof operating at its peak are listed below: 

  • Prevent Trees From Scratching Your Roof 

Tree branches and twigs may dent, cut, or otherwise damage your metal roof when they scratch against it as a result of wind. The resilience of your metal roof may deteriorate if untreated until it can no longer shield your home. Maintain regular tree and bushes trimmings.

  • Eliminate Debris 

Thankfully, rain and even snowstorms wash away debris from your properties. Rainfall can assist in clearing your roof of leaves, and other debris. Soft-bristled conventional window cleaning tools can help remove dirt without damaging your roof. Avoid spraying water underneath the edge of your roof to prevent inside water damage.

  • Avoid Walking On It

Avoid walking on your metal roof. There are several variables that affect both your personal safety and the preservation of your roof from wear and tear brought on by walking on it. If you must walk on your metal roof, especially if you must do so frequently, check the manufacturer’s instructions first.

  • Clean Your Gutters 

Make sure the gutters on your home are clean as well. Debris in your gutters may damage metal roofs if it is not cleaned regularly. If your gutters are clogged with debris, the standing water could erode or rust your roof. 

Follow these guidelines to maintain the functionality of your metal roof for many years to come. Proper metal roof installation is the first step to having a fantastic metal roof. Need a metal roofing installation in Charleston, SC? Call Wando Roofing at 843-890-3585 to schedule your installation.

I had an experience with Wando Roofing that I have never had with other companies in the past 20 years; be they roofers, carpenters painters, etc. I called Wando Roofing at 6:00 a.m. on a Saturday morning, desperately in search of somebody to repair a leak that occurred during a period of heavy rainfall the night before. Shawn returned my call within 30 minutes and was out to make repairs the same day. If you are fed up with no-shows and empty promises, call Wando Roofing.Jeff C.

I have leaks on my roof, other roof contractors did not want to do the repair, they tried to get me to redo the whole roof which were unnecessary because my roof is only 8 years old. Wando roof, the owner Shawn Bullard was honest, he gave me a price for the repair which is reasonable. His worker was at my house the next day before the promised time, very pleasant and went to work and finished the repair in no time. I would highly recommend this company.

We have used Wando Roofing several time over past 4 years for our primary residence as well as a rental home that had some storm damage to the roof and gutters. They are incredibly responsive, always show up on time and have been very reasonable for their quotes. The crew that comes out is extremely polite/helpful and once actually did me the additional favor of paining a piece of trim I could not reach while they were there! Most importantly though they do not propose additional work or inflate what actually needs to be done, as we have found with other roofing companies. I highly recommend you use them and you will not be disappointed! Realtors- they are a gem in times where the schedule is tight!!

We recently had to replace our roof and had a great experience with Wando roofing. They were quick to come out and provide us a bid which was very fair and thorough. They started the work the next week and completed the entire roof in less than 48 hours. The crew was very professional and pleasant and they did an excellent job cleaning up the nails and debris in the yard when the job was complete! Highly recommended!!
