Metal roofs are an excellent choice for businesses, but as with any roof, they will eventually need repairs to maintain their efficiency. At Yutzy Roofing Service, we provide commercial metal roof restoration in Marshfield, WI, and surrounding areas to help clients enjoy their roofs for years to come. When you start to notice issues with a metal roof, like leaking, rust, or increased energy bills, it’s time to seek out a professional for assistance. 

In this guide, we’ll address everything you need to know about metal roof restoration, including common reasons for metal roof repair and the step-by-step restoration process, and answer some frequently asked questions you might have. 

Introduction to Metal Roof Restoration 

Many business owners put off replacing a metal roof. The mere thought of the cost makes you wonder if you can make do with another repair. However, there is another option besides a full replacement and more temporary fixes. Metal roof restoration is an alternative to roof replacement that repairs, enhances, and fortifies your roof. 

We offer commercial metal roof restoration that waterproofs your entire roof structure. This means no more leaks, rust, or damage to worry about. Instead, you can enjoy the benefits of replacing a metal roof at a lower cost. 

Why You May Need a Metal Roof Repair 

The average metal roof lasts 40 to 70 years — but that doesn’t mean it is impenetrable. Over the years, rain, snow, and even sun exposure can weaken the roof and make it more susceptible to corrosion and leaks. You may find that despite your best efforts, energy bills continue to rise. Or you have begun to notice a leaking roof and are unsure whether it is an easy fix or a deeper issue.

Restoration and repair often go hand-in-hand. Our team remedies damage while ensuring your roof is reinforced against potential hazards in the future. 

Signs you should reach out to a professional about metal roof repair include: 

  • Leaks of any size
  • Noticeable corrosion or rust
  • Dents or punctures in the metal — a common result of weather damage 
  • Loose or missing fasteners
  • An aged roof that has begun to lose efficiency 

At the 20- to 30-year mark, it is a good idea to contact a professional and inspect your roof. You can have it restored so it looks and feels brand-new without replacing it. 

Don’t Replace Your Metal Roof — Restore It 

Restoration can save you thousands of dollars and minimize disruptions to your business. It is also a more energy-efficient and eco-friendly way to reinforce your building’s metal roof instead of replacing it altogether. 

Roof restoration is a faster, more economical way to preserve your building’s most vital structure. From waterproof coatings to fastener repair and seam reinforcement, a restoration project is an all-in-one solution for those whose metal roofs have seen better days. 

8 Steps for Flawless Metal Roof Restoration 

Our team uses the Conklin MR System™ to restore commercial metal roofs. This system is known for its enhanced proactive abilities that can eliminate the need for expensive, timely tear-offs and roof replacements. 

Here is how it works:

Step 1: Professional Inspection

Every metal roof restoration project begins with thoroughly inspecting your roof structure. We will assess the physical condition of your roof and determine whether or not its underlying structure is compromised. Then, we create personalized recommendations for repairing and restoring your roof to its former condition. 

Step 2: Repairs 

Our roofing experts will repair any issues with your roof to prevent future problems from arising, such as leaks, holes, or punctures. 

Step 3: Cleaning the Roof 

Once the roof has been repaired, we clean it to remove any dirt and debris that could affect the effectiveness of our restoration work. Regular maintenance can make a world of difference when it comes to your roof, and annual cleanings are advised to prevent buildup and damage. 

Step 4: Priming the Roof

We prime the metal roof to protect it against rust and lay a good foundation for the top coating. Our team uses only the best: Conklin Encase® Metal Primer. 

Step 5: Sealing Fasteners 

Your roof’s fasteners are sealed with premium caulk, creating a leak-proof foundation that keeps everything securely in place. 

Step 6: Reinforcing Seams

To further ensure the structural integrity of your roof, we use custom-fitted fabric reinforcement to protect your roof’s seams against anything that may affect it. 

Step 7: Base Coat Application

The team then proceeds to apply one of the Conklin-standard acrylic base coats: Rapid Roof® III, Rapid Roof® HV, PUMA® XL, or Benchmark®. These form a liquid membrane that can close hairline cracks and offer continuous protection. 

Step 8: Top Coat Application 

To complete the Conklin MR System™, we seal our work with a high-grade acrylic latex top coat.

Metal Roof Restoration FAQs

Can a Restored Metal Roof Improve Energy Efficiency? 

Yes, updating and reinforcing a metal roof that has worn out or been damaged can improve temperature control. A more efficient roof is capable of insulating any building better, which leads to reduced heat absorption and less energy consumption. 

Is Metal Roof Restoration Better Than a Replacement? 

In many cases, restoring a metal roof can be just as effective as replacing it with a new one while saving you money. 

Can You Restore Any Metal Roof?

Most roofs can be restored, but the exact viability of a roof will have to be determined after an inspection. The most important determining factor is the roof’s underlying structure; if it is damaged, then more comprehensive repairs or a replacement may be the best course of action. 

Can Roof Restoration Stop Leaks? 

Yes, part of our commercial metal roof restoration services includes applying premium caulk and a watertight liquid membrane to seal your roof and protect it from water. This can also close any cracks that may have caused water to previously enter your building. 

Are Metal Roofs Harder to Repair? 

The difficulty of any roof repair job depends on factors like the age of the roof, the design of the roof, the type of seams it uses, and any damage it currently has. Rest assured that our team at Yutzy Roofing Service is equipped with the knowledge, tools, and skills to make any repairs your metal roof may need.
