The screws on a metal roof (if exposed) will rust, especially if you're on the Gulf Coast. The easy solution is to replace the screws every ten years or so.
It's easy to forget, but it's very important that any metal roof with exposed fasteners is maintained. Every year it should be fully inspected, and all of the screws should be replaced every ten years or sooner, as demonstrated by this commercial roof in Galveston, TX.
It may be a big job, but our RoofAssess360 ensures we don't miss the little things on our inspections. (Some issues may be impossible to find, such as a hidden leak, but the majority of the time, most deficiencies are discoverable to a professional.)

This roof has sustained wind damage to it's siding. It's important to have a contractor qualified to inspect roofing and siding. Someone with no knowledge of building patterns and engineering requirements could easily miss obvious deficiencies like these, if he's not trained to look for it.
Sometimes you have to make temporary repairs to an area on your roof if a wind storm hit it. Your insurance company will likely pay for this temporary repair, as they want to send their insurance adjuster out before the roof is fully repaired.
The right tools for the right project seems like a no-brainer, right? Well, not always. Imagine this: The contractor you chose rents equipment from the cheapest equipment rental depot. Three days into the job, the equipment breaks down, stalling the project. It's not up and running again for another five days, delaying your commercial roof project by a week. How's that for frustrating? It is mandatory your roofer has veteran project managers on the team to install and manage your new commercial roof properly, as they did here in Galveston, TX.
