Protect Home From Water Damage with Interlocking Metal Roofing Panels

When protecting your home from water damage, there are two primary concerns:  rain and flooding. Here’s some information on managing rain intrusions with interlocking metal roofing panels.

Keeping water out during rain depends heavily on a secure and well-maintained roof system. That maintenance, on longer-term roofs, can require occasional replacement of sealants on the roof or replacement of exposed fasteners if present. Whereas short-term roofs that last 15 years can have sealants that will last the same length of time, exposed sealants will not last the life of more permanent roof systems. 

When the wind kicks up, regular roofing shingles are affected, damaged and sometimes…go flying. When it’s raining, before, after or during a windstorm, your home lacks protection. Water can come in through the smallest of roof areas and wreak havoc on the integrity of your roof decking, insulation, attic, and eventually, your living space.

Interlocking Metal Roofing Panels

For the ultimate protection in Georgia-style storms, consider a Classic Metal Roofing System from Lifetime Metal Roofing of Atlanta. We start our process with a complete attic and roof inspection to identify current or potential trouble spots. We continue on with the development of a customized solution that includes correction and prevention of roof leaks. Our complete system of interlocking metal roofing panels ensures that every point and valley of your roof is tightly sealed and securely fastened. Our specially designed and expertly sealed panels can stand up to wind, rain, and even our somewhat occasional snows.

Preventing Water Damage

Preventing water damage also requires maintaining sealants around windows and doors. These sealants typically need to be replaced at least every 15 years. Failed sealants can allow water to get into the walls of your home where it will cause rot and mold to develop unseen.

Paying attention to the prevention of water damage to your home, from top to bottom, pays off. We are always here to help you learn more about the protection a metal roofing system offers your home.
