Metal roof seaming is an essential component that affects the quality of your standing seam metal roof. If this component isn’t installed properly, it could result in roof leaks, damage and the voiding of your manufacturer’s warranty.
To ensure your standing seam metal roof won’t be compromised, certified roofing contractor Colonial Remodeling, LLC shares four best practices for the installation:
Get to know the roofing contractor you’re hiring. Find out if their crew members are trained in installing a standing seam metal roof and creating metal roof seams. The seaming process obviously requires different steps and a certain level of care. That’s why you have to be sure the person working on the metal roof seams has the expertise and skills necessary to do a good job.
Metal roofing services require specialized equipment. For the seaming, make sure the equipment used matches the roof panel system that’s going to be installed. As a homeowner, you probably have no idea what tools and equipment are required for certain roofing systems, which is why it’s never a bad idea to check with the manufacturer and ask your contractor about it.
An electrical seamer is typically used in the process. It’s quite heavy, and mishandling this equipment can result in harm or injury. To minimize the hazard, the electrical seamer must be tied off with a safety line, which should be attached to something stable and rigid on the building.
