Seams are critical to making sure a metal roofing system is weathertight. As such, if you are getting a metal roof. it’s important to make sure that your roofing contractors have a good grasp of the best seaming practices. After all, they can help guarantee quality, which can help ensure you are making the most of your investment.
Metal roofing pro Coxco Roofing outlines three of the best metal roof seaming practices below:
The Right Equipment – To provide you with quality standing seam metal panels, your roofing contractor needs to have the right tools for the job. Seams have to be done just right, after all, to make sure they don’t only hold the metal panels together but can also prevent water intrusion that can speed up deterioration for screws attaching the metal roof to decking.
The Right Source of Electricity – Metal panels are processed on-site and that will require electricity. Your roofing contractor should have their own power source because not only is it polite but professional metal roofers require dedicated electrical circuits plus at least 10-gauge cords that are 200 feet long max. An electric generator can be utilized to power a seamer, preventing electrical surges during a roof replacement.
The Right Personnel – All members of an installation crew should be properly trained in not just installing a metal roof but also how to seam it correctly. With many roofing contractors providing training for metal seaming, contractors should have no excuse for not being trained. Aside from ensuring proper installation for you, receiving ample training also means knowing safety protocols, lowering chances of injuries and damage to property.
