Will Restore and Protect Commercial and Industrial Metal roofs including:
Restoration is a great alternative to replacement. Metal roofs fail as they age, by their very design. The two biggest sources of roof leaks for metal roofs are fasteners and seams.
For both metal roof repair and metal roof restoration, there are somewhat similar waterproofing processes. by repairing, you are waterproofing only the portion of the roof that is leaking, rather than waterproofing the whole roof.
For a tight budget, repair can be a great option for building owners and property managers. You need to inspect and assess your problematic areas to the budget available for repairing them.
Not everyone can afford a full restoration of their roof, so we can also provide a temporary solution until the funds become available by repairing the problem areas.
On a metal roof, each screw is a potential failure point if the fasteners are exposed. Initially, when the screws are installed, they will have a rubber washer to seal away any moisture. However, over time, the rubber washer gets brittle and cracks, which allows water to enter the building.
Metal is installed in large sheets, with the edges of each sheet also an area for potential leakage. Water can be pulled up and in between the sheets by high winds through a wicking action into the building. Sealant is usually applied between the sheets when the metal roof is installed. But, over time, this sealant degrades, which allows water to enter the building.
We address these two major failure points when we perform a metal roof restoration procedure. Here’s a basic overview of how the process works:
Our Process is the Main Factor to Our Quality Metal Roof Restoration. Some companies might just cover up the damages with an attractive finish – we don’t!. First, we identify and neytralize any rust and repair any leaks and weak spots.
Step 1 – Priming the Roof
First step – neytralize all rust spots and apply our rust-inhibiting primer. This will keep more rust and corrosion from causing additional damage later.
Step 2 – Caulking the Entire Roof
All potential leak points, like fastener heads and screws are caulked to prevent additional leaking. This adds a further layer of protection from leaking.
Step 3 – Treat the Seams
The seams need to be waterproofed with butyl tape, or durable fabrics, compressed between a couple layers of base coat.
Step 4 – The Finish
Last step, apply our very durable reflective topcoat. This will give your metal roof a reflective surface, fully restoring it, keeping it from additional leaks and extreme weather, and making sure you receive additional decades of protection from your roof.
An Additional Point on Rusty Panels and skylights:
Rust forms through a chemical reaction where iron oxidizes when excessive moisture is present with oxygen and water. It will continue to degrade and spread deeper into the original material unless it is eradicated and repaired. The panels will almost certainly fail if its not addressed. Rust primers are designed to neutralize the existing rust and keep it from doing more damage. The skylights, if they’re still within their lifespan, will be renewed and restored with an application of our clear liquid membrane.
