Metal Roof Wind Damage in Albemarle County VA

A metal roofing system is only a good as the installer. At Roof Top Services we take pride in the knowledge and fabrication of our metal roof systems. We are proud to say that we have never had one of our installed metal roofs fail. When a severe storm comes through the Albemarle County region with high winds, we often receive calls about metal roof damage. The homeowner wants to know why their roof failed and can we install a new metal roofing system that will stand the test of time. When we visit the site and inspect the damaged roof, the problems we see are most often installation issues.

The first image below shows a typical metal roof failure due to the combination of installation issues and high winds (ie: Blown off roof example). This is a double lock standing seam roof. The first failure is the fastening system. It is critical for the installer to understand and choose the proper fastener and number of fasteners for each roof installation to avoid wind uplift pressure. The National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) recommends two fasteners per hidden clip and the fasteners are to be ring shank nails. The spacing of fasteners is of vital importance. The clips must be spaced 12 inches apart and no further.

Above, you can see that the clips have only one nail each in Photo 1A and that nail has a smooth shank. Photo 1B shows the clips are on average 30 inches apart (versus the recommended 12-inch spacing), which resulted in using only one-third of the fasteners required.

Photo 1C shows the nail Roof Top Services uses is a ring shank which has higher holding power to the roof framing, and it has the required two nails per clip with 12 in spacing between each clip. Photo 1D shows the correct installation clip and nail sequence of one clip every twelve inches on the metal panel.

As you can see from this case study, not all roofing contractors follow the correct installation guidelines. Roof Top Services LLC has been serving Albemarle County and the surrounding areas since 1999. We pride ourselves in the workmanship and high-quality materials that we are able to provide clients, so don’t hesitate to reach out to us with your next roofing project!

Rubber Flat Roof Replacement in Keswick VA

Roof Top Services LLC recently performed a residential roof repair and replacement for a client in Keswick, VA, which is located in Albemarle County.

The homeowner wanted her leaking flat rubber roof that was over her bricked porch entry to be looked at. She heard about us from a couple neighbor friends so she gave us a call to have us come take a look.

We were able to come out the next day, which was a Tuesday. The roof was apparently installed by someone when the house was originally built. The porch structure was brick and there were two primary issues with the flat rubber roof. The first was that the transition from the flat rubber to the brick bullnose, where the brick rolled over on the porch. There was no good way to seal that seam as designed and it caused leakage. We told her we would make a conforming copper bullnose cap, which would enable us to properly attach the rubber roof to the metal, creating a watertight seam that solved water infiltration problems with the old seam.

The second problem was that the roof was truly flat and held standing water. The water would shed off onto the sidewalk when it rained, causing damage to the sidewalk below. We told her we could install tapered insulation board to direct the water off in a direction that does not cause any damage and will also prevent water from pooling and standing on the roof.

She loved our plans and contracted with us to perform the job. We installed the new rubber roof with sloped drainage to ensure water falls from the roof in a direction that doesn’t cause any damage. She was thrilled with the beauty of the conformed copper we made, and happy to have a resolution for the seam issue.

The homeowner loves the way her roof looks with the copper and is happy to not have any further problems with leaking or sidewalk damage! Thanks for choosing Roof Top Services, LLC for your porch roof replacement project!
