Metal roofing brings a farmhouse style and adds curb appeal to your home. Metal roofs are timeless and also work in protecting your home from the elements. Screw down metal roof installation is popular because it is less expensive than seamless metal roof installation, but still offers great protection and increases the value of your home. The following steps are utilized during the installation of a screw down metal roof.
Although many roofers claim to have experience with metal roofing, common metal roof installation mistakes include:
These metal roof installation mistakes can make a metal roof less appealing to the eye as well as cause leaks in the metal roofing system.
There are 2 methods to installing metal panels on a roof. The screw down metal roof can be installed over existing shingles, or over decking and synthetic felt when installed on a new roof installation. The most common method used in our area on a metal roof upgrade is to begin with framing the existing roof (shingles) with beams in order to create a space for the metal panels to adhere. Applying the metal panels over the existing shingles also creates an additional barrier for elements and dampens the sound from the metal.
Following the framing the metal roofing crews install metal panels customized to fit your specific roof with self-tabbing screws on the screw down metal roof. These self-tabbing screws are made with insulation to prevent any gaping and leaks with open space.This is the difference between screw down metal roofing and seamless metal roofing (also known as standing seam metal roofing). In standing seam metal roof installation, the panels are created to fit seamlessly together, with no visible screws.
Metal roofing is expensive initially, but can save money on homeowner’s insurance premiums and provide longevity and durability that outlasts other roofing systems. Shingles provide protection, but metal roofing is considered to be an investment which could save a homeowner money in the long run as well as boost the value of their home if metal roof installation is done properly and efficiently.
