Steel Roof Replacement vs. Roof Repairs
Wisconsin weather can be unforgiving for a wide variety of roofs — from composite or asphalt shingles to even durable metal roofs. Any Wisconsin home that has been standing for at least 15 years needs a thorough inspection to assess the damage and potential future issues.
A roof that is less than 40 years old may still survive several more years by simply repairing it. Still, it all depends on the material of your current roof.
If you already have a steel roof and only have isolated, damaged sections, then you can simply call our team for quick and simple roof repairs for an affordable short-term solution.
However, if your roof is at least 40 years old or is made from asphalt or composite shingles and other non-metal materials, then repairs will not cut it. A total steel roof replacement will deliver better results and value for your money.
At Bulldog Builders, our team handles both roof repairs and steel roof replacement in Wisconsin. If you’re unsure which one you need, call (414) 405-1751 today and let our roofing professionals help you determine your best course of action.
Warning Signs You Need a Steel Roof Replacement
It’s always better to know the warning signs that your roof is in need of a replacement. Whether you’ve got composite shingles or an older steel roof, make sure to contact a trusted roof contractor if you notice any of the following:
Worn or Peeling Paint
Once your steel roof’s paint and coating starts to deteriorate, this exposes your steel roof to the elements. This can greatly lower its durability and makes it vulnerable to rust and corrosion, and less energy efficient.
Rust and Corrosion
The coating of your steel roof is essential to prevent rust and corrosion. When your steel roof starts to rust, this often leads to holes in your roof and water damage in your home.
Leaks and Water Damage
Leaks and water damage in your attic are red flags that your roof has sustained damage. Even without going out onto your roof, you can pinpoint the damaged spots.
Torn Flashing and Missing Shingles
Dents and holes are to steel roofs as torn flashing and missing shingles are to other roofing materials. These problems both cause water to seep into your attic and cause more damage.
Mold and Roof Rot
Mold and roof rot are the most common resulting damages of leaks due to dented metal roofs or missing shingles. You may also notice algae and moss growth on your attic, or even wooden or composite shingles.
