New metal roof construction comes with a paint system ensuring years and years of protection and aesthetic beauty. However, sometimes you may need to look at recoating the metal roof if you have a much older home, purchase a building with a damaged roof, or want to keep your insulated metal panel buildings looking pristine and new. There are some significant benefits to repainting your metal roof over time.
The number one reason to repaint your metal roof is fixing prior damage. If you have an old farmhouse, for example, or insulated metal panel buildings exposed to considerable weather, moisture, or salt, you might have to repair prior damage. Minor issues like peeling paint, small holes, and surface corrosion can be handled with a new paint job. However, serious structural problems like seams coming apart or flashing failure need to be handled by professionals. If you are not sure about the extent of the damage, have one of our professionals inspect your roof this week.
Recoating Adds Protection
Your metal roof will most likely not need any repainting for a dozen years or more, especially if it was installed with one of our modern high-quality paint systems. You may only have to deal with minor aesthetics and not real damage. Regular maintenance can help enhance the protection and resale value of your home. Acrylic and oil-based paints can be recoated every two to four years. Elastomeric systems only need to be recoated every five to ten years. How often you coat is often up to the weather and moisture that you experience yearly.
Save Money and Gain Resale Value
A newly painted metal roof is an attractive selling point for homebuyers. Even if you don’t plan on selling, recoating your roof lessens damage and minimizes how often you need to replace and repair your roof. Most metal roofing will last for half a century or more with regular maintenance.
