Chances are you’ve called us because of a leak. You don’t know you have one until it has caused some kind of damage. You may need emergency metal roof repair, or you may want a chronic leaking problem solved. You may have lost some panels in a big storm. You may see extensive rust that is deteriorating the structural integrity of the roof, as well as its appearance.
We specialize in two state-of-the-art techniques
- Roof refurbishing
- Roof coatings
How metal roof repair refurbishes your roofing system.
Fixing what’s immediately wrong isn’t enough. You need us to do what’s necessary to prevent future problems –to bring your roof back to peak protection. So we inspect your roof, identifying any holes, rust patches, loose panels, missing nails and screws, and as importantly, we spot any signs of deterioration in order to head off a future repair.
Any leaks can be sealed. Roof cement is applied; it can be urethane, asphalt or plastic. When it is smoothly spread over the hole or damaged area, the area is effectively waterproof again. Loose nails and screws are leaks waiting to happen. We can pull and re-nail the panels and tighten every screw. All seams and edges can be re-sealed with roofing cement as part of your metal roof repair. Severely damaged flashing must be replaced, even if it is not currently leaking. Flashing is the number one location of roof leaks. We replace panels as needed, and can substitute new panels over a large area of the roof if necessary. Rust can be removed and rust-preventing products can be applied.
Take advantage of a revolution in metal roof repair: roof coatings We recommend what are called “elastomeric” roof coatings. Acrylic coatings go on as a liquid over the existing metal. They dry to a seamless, waterproof, clean and modern coating that prolongs the life of your roof. Roof coatings are long-lasting and an economical roofing solution for steel, aluminum and other metal roofing.
You get a roof that is virtually weather-proof
The coating is “elastic” (that’s how they get the name “elastomeric”). So they expand and contract as the weather changes. In the heat of a summer day, they stretch. At night when it cools down, the coating goes back to its original size. As mentioned earlier, expansion and contraction is a significant contributor to leaks and other deterioration that forces metal roof repair. There are still more advantages to elastomeric roof coatings.
Studies prove that reflective roofing reduces air-conditioning costs. For every dollar on your utility bill, a “cool roof” knocks off 20-cents. How? A traditional dark roof passes surface heat through to your interior. A light-colored elastomeric roof coating bounces the heat away. The demand drops for cooling inside your building.
