Hi, We had a standing seam metal roof put on in 2001, with new additions added in 2004. The new areas leaked from the time of installation. The original area has recently begun to leak in two areas. I have also noticed that the south side of the original roof has begun to rust. I have been in contact with the installation company and they attempted to repair the leaks for 2 or 3 years. They have been bought out and the new owners refuse to acknowledge the warranty. The metal manufacturer was Clad-Tex Metals Tuffclad coil coated metal roofing. What do you suggest we do next?

Have you contacted the manufacturer two see what support they might provide?

We have a standing seam metal roof. There has been some leaking in the past couple of winters due to snow melt. One roofer suggested that he "double bend" the seam to provide added structural durability and sealing. Does this sound like a good idea? Will it interfere with the integrity of the roof or existing standing seam? Thanks!

Where is the leak coming in? Do you have any pictures you can post? A double lock is more substantial and does provide a bit better leak resistance and especially in low slop applications, however, single and clip locks are more than proven performers and your roof should not be leaking with one of those style attachments. Are you having ice damning issues?
