Litespeed Construction Fixes Metal Roof Leak in Sevierville, TN. We were contacted about a roof leak in a cabin that was coming in at the ceiling fan. We went out to the property and did a roof inspection finding several issues and fixing them all.

Repairing this metal roof

  1. 1
    Missing screw leaving a open hole

    After seeing a hand full of very loose screws and raised ridge cap metal, I noticed an area that had previously been caulked as I got closer, I noticed that there was a screw missing where the caulk was leaving a wide-open hole right at the top of the roof. The washer was still stuck in the caulk, but no screw.This is a up close picture of a green metal roof that has a hole in it with caulk around it

     

    I filled the hole with sealant and put a heavier gauge screw in the hole.

    Screws backing out

    Along the edge of the ridge cap, I found screws backing way out. There were also random holes in the metal where someone had added a screw and missed wood, so they took the screw out and left an open hole.

    I pulled out the screw, caulked all the holes, and put the screw back in much tighter.This is a up close picture looking under a metal ridge vent at the top of a green metal roof.

    More screws backing out

    This is widespread through the roof. After fixing the leading cause of the leak, we like our customers to get their money's worth, so I re-screwed down any loose screws I could see and get to. Here are some of thoseThis is a picture of a green metal roof with a green screw backing out if it.
