A pan roof is the bottom flat part of a roofing panel, which is between the ribs of the panel. Pan roofing is an aluminum roofing system that can be installed on top of an existing roof structure. Pan roofing is generally used for patios, sun rooms, screen rooms, Florida rooms, walkways, pool enclosures, canopies and any other area where protection from the outdoors is desired. If you are interested in installing a pan roof, Roofing Dunedin is the number one roofing company to call.
Building a patio is an enhancement to your property so it's important to have the right system installed. Conventional pan roof systems are more difficult to keep clean and tend to be noisy. These types of pan roofs can't withstand weight so they can't be walked on without the chance of causing damage. If you can't keep a pan roof clean, eventually, leaks can occur and clogged up gutters can cause the riser pan roof to get water-filled and the seams start to leak.
The better pan roof option is structural insulated panels, which allow you to actually walk on top of the pan roof and clean out debris from the gutters and downspouts. You also will be able to get rid of stones, leaves, pine needles and other junk. Insulated panel roofs can be adorned with beams and wiring in able to put up fans and lighting. Insulation is also helpful in your pan roof because it will reduce sound, keep water out more efficiently and protect against hot and cold temperatures. As professional roofers that have seen what a difference it makes to install an insulated panel roof versus a conventional panel system, our recommendation would be the insulated pan roofing, but you, the customer, are free to choose the conventional pan system, if you prefer. We aim to please our customers.
METAL PAN-- A metal pan roof usually has concrete filling in order to reduce sound. This kind of roof is used more often in public buildings or commercial enterprises. A metal pan roof is economical and protects against fire. Our company, Roofing Dunedin, installs pan roofing systems on commercial properties, as well as residential areas.
PITCH PAN LEAKS--A pitch pan is also known as a pitch pocket. A pitch pan is described by the International Facility Management Association (IFMA) as a "flanged metal container placed around a pipe, conduit, or other roof-penetrating element and filled with bitumen or flashing cement to seal the joint." Manufacturing and commercial facilities are prone to pitch pan leaks. Causes for pitch pan leakage include dried up sealer, structural movement or a penetration in the roof that the pan surrounds has had movement.
If you own a commercial type building and are seeing leaks through the pan roof, don't wait to do something about it. One small leak can lead to major damage.
