Metal roof restoration is a great alternative to replacement. Metal roofs, by their very design, are prone to failure as they age. There are two primary sources of roof leaks: fasteners and seams.
Every screw is a potential failure point on a metal roof with exposed fasteners. When screws are installed initially, they have a rubber washer that seals out moisture. Over time, however, the rubber becomes brittle and cracked, allowing moisture to enter the building.
Since metal is installed in large sheets, the edges of each sheet are potential areas for leakage. Wicking action can pull water up in between sheets and inside the building envelope. Typically when new metal is installed, a sealant is applied between sheets. Over time, however, the sealant degrades, allowing moisture to enter the building.
Our metal roof restoration system addresses these two failure points in great detail. Here’s an overview of our process:
Step One: Apply soap to the roof deck
Step Two: Power wash and rinse the entire roof deck
Step Three: Prime the roof deck with a rust inhibiting primer
Step Four: Embed fabric or butyl tape in base coat over all horizontal and vertical seams
Step Five: Apply sealant to all fasteners
Final Step: Apply a heavy coat of reflective, elastomeric coating over the entire roof
The first five steps of the process bring the roof to a watertight condition. The final coat then adds an additional level of leak protection.
Once the final coat is applied, your roof is now ready to handle 10, 12, or even 18 years of harsh Texas sun.
