metal roofing in austin

Roof leaks can appear at any time of the year in the area around Austin.  The causes are many and varied, and can appear unexpectedly even in newer roofs.  When spring rain hits, many homeowners wonder why their roofing isn’t protecting their house as it should.  In this article, we would like to look at some of the reasons why metal roofing fails in Texas:

Identifying Metal Roofing Leaks

Newer metal roofing requires next to no repairs – rated for high wind and naturally resistant to corrosion, it is a supreme roofing material.  Homeowners who report that their metal roof started to leak shortly after installation are often appalled to discover that it was because of poor workmanship.  We hate getting these phone calls from our community, so we made it our mission at Quality Roofing is to do the job right, the first time.  Unlike the “Storm Chaser” roofing contractors, who do not stick around long enough to receive feedback from their work, we are always available to help out homeowners in need of roofing services.

Chimneys and Skylights

One of the most common sources of leaks in metal roofs in Austin is the improperly flashed areas around exposed areas like brick chimneys and older skylights. If this area is the weak spot in your roof, our team can repair or replace the flashing. Some repairs may be more in-depth, especially if the wood decking underneath has been exposed to water and the elements.

Poorly Secured Metal Panels

Although they are manufactured to withstand high winds, standing seam panels and metal shingles may be damaged or blown away in high Texas winds.  This can happen to older metal roofs or because of improper installation.  You may find that the cause of your metal roof failing is that the interlocking panels were not fastened properly. Our roofing specialists will assess the damage to see if we can replace and repair the missing panels. If more work is needed, we will provide you with a competitive quote.
