Is Commercial Metal Roof Restoration For You?

Commercial Metal Roof Restoration Will Save You Money

Do you have an aging commercial metal roof? Do you have leaks, rust spots or spots on your roof that appear weak? You can extend the life of your metal roof with a proven metal roof restoration system for seamless, waterproof protection that will last.

Commercial metal roof restoration is a great alternative to replacing your roof. Metal roofs, by their very design, are prone to failure. The two biggest sources of metal roof leaks are the fasteners and seams.

Each screw is a potential issue spot on a metal roof due to exposed fasteners. When screws are installed, they include a rubber washer designed to seal the screw from moisture. However, the rubber becomes brittle and cracked over time, which allows moisture to enter the property.

Commercial Metal Roof Restoration ContractorsMetal roofing is installed in large sheets, and due to this, the edges of each sheet are potential spots for leaking also. A wicking action during windy conditions can pull water up in between sheets and allow it inside the building. When new metal is installed, a sealant is usually applied between sheets. What happens over time, however, as the sealant decays, it also will allow moisture to enter the building.

With this in mind, before you decide to commit a lot of your funds replacing your commercial metal roof, ask us to inspect it. It can probably be restored by applying our top-performance Commercial Metal Roof Restoration System.

Our system begins at the root of the issue. We neutralize the rust, Essentially waterproof all of the screws, seams, and protrusions on your roof with our fabric and coating techniques. Then, seal the entire roof with a polyurethane acrylic coating. You’ll have a totally seamless roof system that can last as long as another 10 to 15 years, giving you an ecologically energy efficient roof that will save you a lot of money.

Here at Armadillo Roofing & Exteriors, we employ a complete waterproofing restoration system for metal roofs. It stops leaks, inhibits rust, and gives you an energy-efficient, long-lasting, attractive finish coating which will extend the lifespan of your metal roof for man years. During the restoration process, the entire roof is cleaned and then primed with a rust inhibiting primer. After the seams and fasteners have been reinforced the whole roof is then covered with a highly reflective coating.

This system is specifically designed to stop leaking where it most often happens – at the seams. In addition to great protection against moisture penetration, the Metal Roof Restoration System extends the lifespan of your roof by holding up in extreme weather and lowers cooling costs by reflecting the sun’s harmful rays.  Lightweight restoration roof coating can also help extend your building’s structure. We offer a comprehensive selection to meet your metal roofing needs and your budget.

Commercial Metal Roof Restoration Contractors With Experience

Here’s a simple over view of how the process works:

1 – Prime the Roof

The first step is neutralizing any rust spots and keeping any future rust away with rust-off and metal primer.

2 – Caulking Seams and Openings

Next, we caulk all fastener heads and potential weak spots with a fastener grade caulking compound.

3 – Protection for the Seams

We waterproof the seams on your roof with special tape or fabric, which compresses the material between a couple layers of base coat.

4 – Apply a Final Coating

Lastly, we apply a final reflective topcoat that protects your roof from leaking and provides reliable protection against the sun’s rays and extreme weather for years to come. The first steps of the process make the roof watertight. The final coat then adds an additional level of leak protection. Once this final coat is applied, your metal roof is now ready to handle 10, to as much as18 years, of harsh Texas sun.

As a result, here are a few benefits you’ll see immediately:

Stops the Leaking – Most metal roof leaks start at the seams where the roof is weakest. Our innovative coating seals those seams, preventing leaks and inhibiting rust.

Reduces Energy Expenses – The white, reflective coating will keep your metal roof as much as 80 degrees cooler, which will help you save up to 84% on your energy bills.

Superior Protection – Perfect for all weather climates, our system provides protection against high winds and pounding hail.
