Colorbond roofing prides itself in using the best materials and harnessing new technologies to deliver superior products. However, between transportation, storage and actual installation, a lot of things can happen. These things can undermine the look and performance of your new metal roof even before it is installed. As such, you and your roofing contractor should pay good attention to how the roofing sheets are stored prior to installation. Here are some important tips you should closely follow. Keep the roofing sheets dry. Prior to installation, moisture is the biggest enemy of metal roofing. Ideally, the roofing sheets should be stored off the ground and should be stacked or bundled neatly. If necessary, provide a covering to reinforce the protection against moisture. When roofing sheets are stored closely together, an action called capillary action can draw water between the sheets. In turn, capillary action can lead to stains and the shortened life expectancy of your new roof. Dry wet metal sheets immediately. If the roofing sheets should get wet during storage, it is crucial that these are dried as soon as possible. If the roofing sheets are stacked, separate these and immediately wipe those that have gotten wet using a clean piece of cloth. You might notice that the roofing sheets' paint film may have softened and that the colour may have changed. After you have dried the roofing sheets, these will revert back to their natural state. The roofing sheets should be handled with great care until fully dry. Otherwise, corrosion and stains can set in. Your home is likely to be your biggest financial investment and your largest asset. Having a BlueScope warranty covering the important steel building products in and around your home is an investment in peace of mind. COLORBOND® steel is developed for, and therefore more resilient to, the severe sunlight and temperatures typical of Australian environments.

Many homeowners and buildings choose metal roofing systems because they offer various benefits. Not only is it inexpensive and easy to install, but it is also a low-maintenance roofing material that does not require much maintenance.

Although metal roofs do not need much routine work, it is still vital for their overall performance and longevity to look after them well on your own. Continue reading to look out whatever you require to do for your roof and how to get started.Four steps to take care of the metal roof. There are four necessary steps you should take each year to maintain the condition of the metal roof. These four essential steps are just the basics and may vary depending on the state of your roof. For example, if you have continuous surface damage, wildlife interference you may need some extra work sometimes, in addition to these four steps. The following are the four most important responsibilities that must be kept in place to maintain the structural integrity of the metal roofing system: Roof inspection - The metal roof must be checked at least once a year for damage such as water intrusion, wildlife intrusion, pest problems, holes, gaps, and another susceptibility. When it comes to surfaces, catching a small problem early is critical to protecting your home and your budget. Repairing the small roof can quickly become a significant and costly disaster if you do not catch it in time. This is one of the vital reasons behind the importance of annual inspections on the roof. Tree Trimming - If you are living on a property that does not have trees longer than the roofing system, you do not have to worry about this step. However, wooded plots and their properties with mature trees should remain above their tree tables to protect their home from tree damage. Large branches or weak trees can fall in heavy rain or windstorm, while lost foliage and branches can block gutters and accumulate on surface herpes. This can lead to poor runoff, water leakage, mildew, mildew, bacteria, and more. Cleaning a gutter - Whether you have a lot of wood or not, every homeowner must keep on top of his cleaning responsibilities. Your maze system means directing water away from your home to protect its roofs, bias, foundation, and more. Blocked, broken, or defective gutters will not perform well enough to provide the level of protection your home needs. Make sure to clean the gutters twice a year. Recruiting professionals - If you suspect that your roof needs some minor repairs or modifications, hire a team of roofing contractors for professional assessment and service. They retain appropriate skills, licenses, training and equipment to perform their roof duties safely.
