Over long periods of time, standing water can take its toll on a container rooftop. Therefore, we recommend you maintain your container – and its metal roof – to ensure it will last for many years to come by following these five tips. The slope is created to help prevent standing water from pooling and warping the structure underneath. Does this roof style make shipping containers inadequate as modified structures? So, if you walk across the roof or store heavy items on top of your container it will flex. Falcon Structures uses ISO certified shipping containers, meaning they must meet strict roof rigidity and strength requirements.
If standing water is ignored for too long it may lead to mold, rust, thinning metal, or moisture intrusion. Use a commercial wetting agent, mild bleach, or anti-mildew solution along with a water hose and broom to release rust and dirt.
Call a professional to repair large dents, scratches, rust spots, and holes and to repaint the container as needed.
