Colorbond roofing remains the top choice for both property owners and their roofing contractors. And it’s not so surprising, considering the roofing material's reputation and the benefits it offers. However, there are some customers who complain about the performance of their roof after installation. A great deal of these complaints can be attributed to a poor installation process. Here are a few key points that will help you get the most out of your roofing and prevent unnecessary problems. Transit and storage The roofing material should be kept dry during its transport and storage. Otherwise, moisture can wreak havoc on the metal roofing sheets, especially when these are stacked closely in bundles. The roofing sheets should be placed above ground, and when these get wet, these should be wiped immediately and allowed to dry. Use the right fastener Using the wrong fastener can facilitate premature corrosion and shorten the metal roof's lifespan. Colorbond recommends the use of fasteners that conform to AS 3566. Use neutral cure silicone sealants Gutters and downpipes facilitate the flow of rainwater from the roof toward the downspout. But even if the two do a good job of drawing water away from the roof, the presence of joints and laps can lead to leaks. This is why it is crucial to properly seal joints and laps. And when you are sealing these, you need to use a neutral cure silicone sealant. The wrong type of sealant can cause corrosion. Clean up after installation After cutting or piercing metal roofs, a debris called swarf is produced. Leaving swarf on metal roofing can lead to the formation of rust stains which can make it look unsightly. Ideally, swarf should be cleaned off the roof after each work day. Also, if there is a need to cut or pierce the metal roof, this task is best performed on the ground using a cold cutting saw. Install gutters and downpipes correctly Improper installation of gutters and downpipes can lead to pooling or the formation of ponds of water on the roof. Eventually, when this problem is not rectified, plants can grow on the roof. Use the right type of paint If you notice surface blemishes or fine scratches on the metal roof, avoid the temptation of touching up the roof using the wrong type of paint. Otherwise, you will compromise the performance and appearance of the roof. You can simply leave these blemishes and scratches as is without having to worry about the performance of your roof. Use the right cleaning materials Cleaning the roof properly can help prolong its lifespan. For your roofing needs, you can turn to Metal Roofing Online, a trusted BlueScope steel supplier.
