The homeowner has chosen a beautiful standing seam roof, and your installation is flawless. But before you leave, make sure you cover the maintenance requirements to ensure your handy work does not lose its beauty or deteriorate prematurely. Below are a few tips to ensure your homeowner understands the maintenance for their new standing seam metal roof.
As with every roofing material, standing seam roofing requires regular inspections to ensure it maintains its optimal state. There are a few responsibilities that a homeowner will need to tend to. They include the following.
Regardless of where a house is located, its roof is bound to take on debris over time. This debris will run the gamut from branches to leaves to floating garbage and otherwise. Its existence on a roof is detrimental not only because it impairs the roof’s appearance, but because it has the potential to trap water, leading to premature deterioration.
At a minimum, you should recommend homeowners facilitate roof clearings every year. However, ideally, you’ll do it every four to six months. The more frequently you clean someone’s roof, the longer it will maintain its shape over time.
Annual inspections and occasional clearing will comprise almost all the maintenance needed for a standing seam roof. The only other maintenance that might be needed is repairs. For instance, if a panel is crushed by a particularly large branch, it might need to be replaced with a fresh panel. That’s about it as far as supplemental maintenance goes.
