The quality of the seaming can have an impact on the performance of your standing seam metal roof. If your metal roof has subpar seaming, roof damage and leaks may eventually occur. In some cases, a seaming that has been done poorly can void the manufacturer’s warranty.
To avoid these problems, make sure the roofers working on your metal roof follow industry guidelines. Roofing by Curry shares a few best practices when it comes to metal roof seaming.
First and foremost, you have to ensure your contractor is knowledgeable and experienced in the metal roof seaming process. Find out how many standing seam metal roof installations they have done in the past, and check customer reviews about their services. The seaming process involves multiple steps, it must be done with care and attention to detail.
Roofers must use the right type of equipment during the seaming process. If you’re a homeowner, it can be hard to determine whether the workers are using the correct tools and equipment. But to give you an idea, you should check manufacturer instructions and simply ask your contractor about it.
Much like in other building procedures, safety precautions must be observed by everyone involved in the job. The electrical seamer, for instance, is usually heavy. That’s why it’s best to have it tied to a safety line, which must be attached to a stable or rigid part of the building. This is just one of the measures that must be done to avoid work-related accidents.
