Metal Roof Sealant

Metal Roof Sealant

This foot traffic, the natural expansion and contraction of the metal due to temperature changes, and the UV rays of the sun are the ingredients that cause roof leaks. This is after two coats of seal has been applied to this leaking metal roof This is why it is very important the sealing material include features that can help keep a facility dry. There are a few products that can provide the desired results. If you just have a few leaks, you might eat to visit our Metal roof leaks repair page. We also have a service team for minor leak repairs. leaking metal roof stack sealed on a standing seam roof. The expansion and contraction on this standing seam metal roof caused an expansion in the fastener holes. Butyl caulk tape is installed at the fastener bolt/nut while at the same time allowing the drain channels to continue to flow. Elastomeric roof coating was applied after these metal roofs were waterproofed. Aircraft hangars, Toledo, OH. Metal Roof Resealing Above, aluminum roof coating over a sealed, rusty metal roof. Prior to the aluminum metal roof coating this metal roof had many leaks and was very rusted.Waterproofing and coating a metal roof, eliminating metal roof leaks, Houston, TX. Leaky metal roof repaired. The above complex is over 325,000 square feet. This project includes sealing the three buildings to stop all leaks. There were over 200 different leaks in the building. The building is currently leak free and the coating process is complete. Project completed May, 2015.We have experience with a wide variety of products from a number of manufacturers. The product lines include Uniflex Elastomeric white roof coatings, Kool seal, and Kool seal polyurethane sealants, Truco urethane sealants and elastomeric rubber roof coatings, Sherwin Williams, Tremco sealants, Vulkem, and roof coatings, ER Systems roof sealants, Aztec systems, 687 Enviro-White from Henry, Topps products, and GAF 322 Elastomeric Roof Coatings.We have experience with all of these products in stopping leaks from a leaking metal roof and extending the roof by applying a protective coating. Give us a call, we can tell you which one we found most effective. We have been coating roofs for 20 years, time is the test. After the pressure washing is complete the metal roof was sealed. The sealing product used was a rubberized urethane. It is important to note that after the sealing process was complete, before the coating was applied, the roof was leak free and water proof. Above, Elastomeric roof coating. Gray base coat, White top coat. waterproofing metal roof paint Sealing process in progress, fasteners sealed on a exposed fastener, screw down roof. The most important element in stopping metal roof leaks is the care during the sealing/waterproofing process. The roof must be clean or the material will adhere to the dirt and not the roof. Some old materials can be sealed over, others require removal. The roof must be dry to bond with the roof. The sealing material must have the required strength to withstand the movement and abuse expected in that particular area. Sealing a large exhaust fan Industrial plant. On a standing seam roof leaks most often are due to leaks at penetrations. We can stop these leaks without coating the entire roof. This industrial facility, located in MI, is one of the facilities operated by the worlds largest automotive supplier. September, 2016. Aluminum metal roof coating for this standing seam metal roof. Prior to the sealing and coating process there was a leak at this roof pipe, it was sealed prior to coating to stop metal roof leaks Coating a Metal RoofThere are two types of professional metal roof coatings, aluminum and elastomeric. Some people also use paints. Paint will work as long as it is an elastomeric paint and you will never have snow and ice on your roof. Snow and ice will cause a paint coating to delaminate from a metal roof.Aluminum roof coating products vary widely. There are inexpensive versions sold at home improvement stores, try them at your own risk.The aluminum coating products we use are asphalt based and fibered. The coating not only includes a high quality aluminum flake, but also a high quantity of flakes. The quality and quantity of the aluminum flakes directly relates to the brightness and longevity of the coating. The product itself contains a rust arrestor, helping to make this a very cost effective option. The base of the coating stays soft and flexible for years because it is protected by the surface accumulation of the aluminum flakes. The system is bonded together by fiberglass threads.Elastomeric white roof coatings have a slightly higher reflectivity rating than aluminum. They are able to be tinted for a color match. If a rusty roof exists, a rust primer must be applied prior to the roof coating. Elastomeric roof coatings typically have a higher level of aesthetic appeal than an aluminum roof coating. Regardless of the coating used, the coating protects the sealing materials, and extends the life of the metal roof.We provide NON-PRORATED warranties on all of our work. The warranties can extend up to 10 years and includes labor and material. Metalguard uses the most efficient tools available. We strive to produce the highest quality product, at the most competitive price. The roof spray rig above is a Grayco 833 with a quick change unit. In this spray application it was configured to operate with two guns, with 700 feet of hose, thats 2 1/2 football fields of 4,000 psi hose. The longer hose lengths minimize the number of times it is necessary to move the pump, saving money. With the above rig we typically spray over 60,000 square feet of roof surface per day which is 600 to 800 gallons of roof coating material per day (the base coat has a different application rate than the top coat). Metal roof coating in process. White elastomeric roof coating. In the above picture the white top coat of the elastomeric roof coating is being applied. To the left you can clearly see the difference between the grey base coat and the white top coat of the elastomeric roof coating. Two coats are necessary for the product to cure properly. While working on a project, we place a high priority on respecting our customers facility. We do our best to minimize the area required for our operations. We clean-up as we go and do a general clean-up at the end of each day.  We take great pride in waterproofing metal roofs. We have our own staff.  The picture to the left shows the elastomeric roof coating. For this project we used the Uniflex Elastomeric industrial roof coating from Sherwin Williams. This project required 145, 55 gallon barrels of coating material.  The roof coating cools the roof surface temperature by 35 degrees during a hot summer day in Houston. There is a very noticeable difference on the inside.Leak repair, rusty metal roof, metal roof replacement, replacing screws fasteners, replacing a metal roof please call. Any steel or welding repairs please call
