Maintenance and Repair
When choosing a roof covering material, Orkney Islands homeowners should take the time to learn about maintenance and repair. After all, these costs will add up over the lifetime of the roof, and it’s important to understand them to fully appreciate the investment required. Metal lasts longer than any other material under normal conditions, but it will need to be maintained and protected to prevent corrosion, rust, and fading, depending on the paint. Repairs are often quite simple as it’s possible to simply remove one panel and replace it, but this can present some issues. For example, if your roof is very old, it may be difficult to find the exact panels to match. What’s more, when the panels are available, fading from the sun may make the new panel stand out when compared to the rest.
