Metal roofs such as steel and aluminum are quite popular with commercial structures because they are energy efficient, durable, and have low maintenance costs. Some damage does happen over time however such as corrosion, leaks, cracks, and gaps. These could be due to weather conditions as well as factory production.
Commercial metal roof leak repair costs vary from 600 to 2000 dollars, with a national average of 1500 in the US.
These repairs involved sealing holes, fixing cracks, removing and replacing rusted sections, and more. Depending on the level of damage on the roof you will be able to get a cost estimate on the repairs and decide for yourself whether going ahead with the repairs is a good option or whether you need to replace the whole structure and get a new roof instead.
In case the repairs cost over 10.000 dollars, we advise our clients to look into the option of replacing the roof entirely as it will give them a better and more efficient roofing system that will last longer and have less damages to deal with in the long run.
Some damages to a metal roof such as dents or scratches are easier to repair and as a result, they cost much less. You can expect to pay about 150 dollars for small repairs which is an understandable sum.
To lower repair costs it is important to conduct regular and scheduled inspections of your roof. Also, make sure to maintain it properly and fix any small issues as soon as you notice them so you can avoid aggravating the state of the roof over time.
Not all metal roofs are built the same. As such, commercial metal roof leak repair costs also vary.
An aluminum roof is less expensive and repair costs vary from 6 to 10 dollars per square foot.
Copper and stainless steel roofs on the other hand are more expensive and can cost up to 20 dollars per square foot.
