If you own a home or business then you likely know the various headaches that come along with properly maintaining your property. Whether you have to deal with a busted furnace or a leaky roof, there always seems to be some problem manifesting itself. Today, we are going to shift our focus toward metal gutters and the priority of proper maintenance. Metal gutters are a great addition to just about any home or business, be it industrial, commercial or residential, but they still have a few problems that a professional roofing company can take care of. At Johnson Roofing we pride ourselves as much in our ability to facilitate all of your roofing solutions as we do in our ability to educate you on the various aspects of the job. With that being said, let’s dig in — there is a lot to cover regarding metal gutter maintenance.
Metal Gutters: Proper Maintenance Services
Metal gutters are the kind of home or business addition that you won’t properly appreciate until they are malfunctioning or otherwise in disrepair. Metal gutters, made of galvanized steel most commonly, offer you the ability to streamline your weather-related maintenance issues while maintaining an aesthetic appeal that just can’t be matched by the cheap gutters that you see on so many older homes.
Metal gutters have a plethora of different benefits that make them ideal for being added to your home or business. For one, metal gutters are typically resistant to rust and they outperform aluminium gutters when it comes to warp-resistance and thermal damaging. Metal gutters are also expected to last significantly longer than cheaper aluminium counterparts.
With all of that being said, at some point in time, you are likely going to need to maintain your metal gutters. Whether your gutters have fallen into disrepair due to a leak or simple wear-and-tear, the problems need to be fixed. A malfunctioning gutter can lead to bigger issues down the line, no matter how small the problem seems in the current moment. For that reason, we highly suggest giving us a call here at Johnson Roofing.

Metal roofing is incredibly common here in New Zealand, and for good reason. With that being said, there are many different kinds of metal roofing out there to choose from. At Johnson Roofing, we pride ourselves on the ability to not only help our customers with their roofing needs but also our ability to educate them. Today, we are going to focus on standing seam metal roofing. We are going to discuss what this type of roofing is, the various benefits and applications, and what you need to do in order to add it to your home.
Standing Seam Metal Roofing
When you look through a catalogue of metal roofing options, your eyes are probably going to be drawn to a standing seam metal roof. This type of roof isn’t quite as common as the other types in the catalogue, but it is incredibly useful. You’ll note standing seam roofing largely for the way that the metal comes to an elevated point. This is done by way of crimping each seam together into a solid join. Standing seam roofing has a ton of different design benefits that owners of residential and commercial properties are likely to find quite appealing. Let’s look at a few different benefits of standing seam metal roofing.
1. Longevity & Durability – When it comes to buying a roof, you don’t want to end up with something that will fall apart on you. Standing seam metal roofing is incredibly durable and can last upwards of twice as long as your conventional roofing shingles.
2. Drainage & Weather Resistance – Standing seam metal roofs are, by nature of their design, much better at handling weather than flat surfaces. The slant of the roof allows for an efficient roof drain to be installed. The slanted roofs also disallow any sort of buildup. This kind of roof can also withstand strong winds upwards of 225 KM/H.
3. Aesthetically Pleasing – Finally, standing seam metal roofs are incredibly pleasing to the eye. They offer dramatic angles and eye-catching focal points. This is a great benefit if you are running any sort of commercial project out of the building that will have the standing seam metal roof installed.
Installing Standing Seam Metal Roofing
While the DIY spirit is admirable, it isn’t the right way to go for this kind of roof. Standing seam metal roofing will require a professional touch in order to ensure that it is properly installed. That is why we specialise in working with standing seam roofing here at Johnson Roofing. With just a phone call you can be on your way to a consultation and estimate.
