We had a metal roof installed in Big Bear, CA by a local contractor about 3 years ago. It has now started to leak. The contractor is no where to be found. He never left us any paperwork that showed the original manufacturer, or the warranty. We seem to remember that he might have said the materials came from Adelante, CA. Is there a manufacturer in that area? We had another local contractor come to fix it, but it still leaks. Any suggestions on what to try, contractors in that area that are familar with metal roofing, or who to contact? Any help is greatly appreciated!

We have about a 2/12 pitch roof, a metal roof was recently installed. We had a couple bad ice/snow storms recently and the roof leaked. Should the seams have been sealed when the roof was installed? Or should anything special have been done at the time of installation? What can be done now? Thanks much.

There are metal roofs which are suitable for installation down to 2:12. However, other products require 3:12 or even 4:12 in snow climates. I cannot answer your questions as they are entirely dependent upon exactly what product is installed on your roof. You will have to contact the manufacturer of the roofing and make these inquiries of them.

I am not familiar with Adelante, CA at all. Perhaps you can contact the Chamber of Commerce there. Other than that, the Find a Contractor section of this website might yield an experienced metal roofing installer in your area. Also, if you'd like to send me photos of the roof, I might be able to provide some input. Email to [email protected]

I know I cannot reach the manufacturer today so I will give you the company name, it is Union Corrugating, the product installed was Masterrib. Hope this helps with an answer. Thanks again.

Union Corrugating's website include installation instructions for MasterRib. It appears as though they require 3:12 pitch for this product and they also prefer to have a butyl tape used on the side seams. I hope this helps.
