5V Metal Roof

We recently replaced a section of metal roofing in North Raleigh.  The recent rains this summer in the Triangle produced several leaks in an old 5V metal roof.  Due to the roof's age we determined the best approach was to replace it.

The original roof slope was comprised of a 7' and 4' section, transitioning into a lower 2/12 pitch slope.  Most of the leaks were in the transition. After removing the metal panels, we installed "ice and water shield" along the 30' horizontal transition.  Instead of replacing the metal panels the same way, we decided to use a 12' panel, folded at the transition, extending 12" into the lower panel,  providing seamless, water-tight protection for the client.

Here is a photo of the completed project.

Metal roof can be repaired with many of the materials but the best one coatings are those which maintains the shape and weight of the RV same.

We have repaired/restored metal roofs with coatings in the past. However, it is critically important to make absolutely sure the roof qualifies for a coating application. The are instances where rust has literally "eaten" through the metal where patching and coating is no feasible.

Metal roofs can be repaired by different coatings or materials but it should be done with perfect worker assigned for this work.
