Some of the most common issues our clients call us about are low slope metal roofs that expand and contract and leak and flat roof systems that are very costly to replace. Our clients are looking for ways to extend the life of their flat roofs or metal roofing systems.
Truth is, a flat roof or a metal roof replacement is expensive, and there are excellent ways to set off much of the cost of a complete roof replacement.
If you have a low slope metal roof, chances are you have aggravating leak issues. Metal expands and contracts, the seams on metal roofs leak and the roof penetrations on metal roofs leak. A complete metal roof replacement isn’t necessary and replacing a metal roof doesn’t solve the metal roof leak issue anyway.
Roof Coatings for flat roofing and metal roofing available in today’s marketplace are very effective – we can’t stress enough our success in this area of roof maintenance. Premium roof coatings available now solve the aggravating roof sealant and caulking issues and flat roof and metal roof coatings are an excellent alternative to a complete re-roofing.
Premium Roof Coatings now carry a 10 year manufacturer warranty. The product is literally bullet proof when installed and has huge elasticity. The pricing for a premium roof coating is very competitive when considering flat roof or metal roof full life cycle costs, a roof coating is maintenance work so there are tax benefits, and the best part about the roof coatings available now is the new generation of roof coatings perform very, very well. They eliminate the aggravation that comes with metal roof problems and they can save you a lot of the expense associated with constant metal or flat roof repairs, roof maintenance.
Roof coatings set off the need for a complete re-roof/roof replacement for years or even decades.
The photo in this post is of a roof coating crew that completed an industrial roof coating in Lloydminster, AB. The industrial metal roof they coated in rubber is around 20000 sq. ft. and the coating work took just under a week. The roofers pressured washed the metal cladding first and then applied a rubberized roof coating to the metal roof cladded deck. Prior to the field of the metal roof being coated in the elastomeric liquid rubber, a trowel grade liquid rubber is applied to the screws (fasteners), to the seams of the metal cladding, and to any roof penetrations. Then the liquid elastomeric rubber roof coating is applied to the main field area of the roof. Now when this metal roof expands or contracts the seams and the roof penetrations are not going to let water in and the roof won’t leak. Additionally, the life cycle of the roof has been extended for 10 to 20 years and the tax benefit is realized.
