Why Restore Install a Metal Roof?
Your Commercial Metal Roof has a leak, now what. The age-old debate, repair, or replace comes at you full force. Adding a patch is only a bandaid. Replacing it means you can’t use the building until it’s finished. Think about it, both of these options are stressful, and doing nothing about that leak risks severe damage. What if I told you there was a 3rd option. This 3rd option has all the benefits of a replacement with none of the drawbacks. Metal Roof Restoration (MRR) is a permanent roofing system applied directly on top of your existing metal roof. Imagine how this would improve your life and business. No more worrying about leaks causing thousands of dollars in damages, and your staff can do their job instead of mopping water. We have installed 2 million square feet and counting on buildings ranging from national chains to registered historic structures. Call today and ask for a free no-obligation roof inspection.
Metal Roofing is a common roofing material well known for its strength, good looks, and durability. Metal does have some drawbacks. It is best suited for steep roofs that drain and dry quickly. Commercial buildings fitted with metal roofs often have low slope roofs that do not drain well like a more vertical roof. This poor drainage, coupled with their sheer size and metal’s propensity for expansion and contraction during temperature changes, causes many problems. Movement causes fasteners to loosen, and the butyl tape that is sealing each joint breaks down over time. This once lovely and watertight roof quickly becomes a leaking disaster. We have a Solution! Conklin Metal Roof Restoration System. Restore it, don’t replace it!
Metal Roof Restoration
How its done
Step 1: Cleaning
Nothing can bond to a dirty roof surface. Step #1 is a deep clean of the roof, removing accumulated dirt and grime and caulk, and other products used as a patch in the past. High-pressure washers strip the surface down to the original surface. Other additional methods are used where needed. De-greaser is used anywhere oil has contaminated the roof surface. A special rust remover (Rust-Off) removes any surface rust leaving a clean surface ready for primer.
Step 2: Fasteners
Loose Fasteners must be tightened or replaced. Years of expansion and contraction of the metal loosens screws and fasteners across the entire roof. Loose screws weaken the roof and building. We check and tighten every fastener, replacing them where necessary. As an added precaution, each fastener head is covered with a Hershey kiss shaped cap of Qwik-Caulk.
Step 3: Seam Reinforcement
The joints in a metal roof are a common cause of leaks. Metal roofing joints (often referred to as seams) are vulnerable to leaks from backed up snowmelt or the simple wicking of water between the two roof metal sheets. Every seam is reinforced with a high tensile strength cloth embedded in the liquid applied membrane. With the roof cleaned, fasteners tightened or replaced, and every seam or joint reinforced, your roof is ready for step #4.
Step 4: Primer & Top Coat
Liquid Applied Membrane a long-term roofing solution for your peace of mind. Step #4 is the final protective layer. Primer is applied as a seamless coat to the entire roof surface. Primer is a bonding agent ensuring a proper chemical bond to the roof surface. Next comes the Liquid Applied Membrane. This membrane is a tough, lightweight white acrylic applied as a seamless layer. Warranties range from 10 up to 18 years. This membrane can be cleaned and renewed, extending the warranty an additional 10 to 18 years if completed before the warranty expires. Ask about our Annual Roof Inspections to catch any damage to the roof and repair it quickly.
Common Questions & Answers
Will I Save Money on Utilities?
Great question; most if not nearly all building owners see significantly lower heating and cooling bills after installing a White Conklin Roof. Lower energy consumption comes in two primary ways. #1, Conklin white roofs reflect up to 85% of the radiant heat from the sun. Less heat absorbed means airconditioning units cycle less frequently, using less energy. #2 Our foam roofing system offers both reflectivity and much-improved insulation. This seamless insulation system eliminates most of the typical energy leaks present in standard insulation systems.
How Can Your System Last So Much Longer?
Conklin Roofing Systems are vastly different from the competition. Every roof we install is the result of multiple products, each with a particular job. Every area exposed to extra wear and tear or stress has additional reinforcement added to avoid premature failure. Our roofing systems consistently last longer because of one thing; they are a complete system with multiple products working together to achieve the best result.
Can We Keep Using the Building While the Roof is Being Installed?
Yes, you will be able to keep using the building while we restore your roof. Elite Commercial Roofing will restore your roof without exposing the inside of the building*. Most building owners experience little to no interruption.
*If your roof is so severely damaged that a full or partial tear-off is required, we will work with you to minimize the impact as much as possible.
What About Hail?
Can a Conklin Roof handle a hail storm? Yes, they can; many of our roofing systems have carry a class 4 hail rating. Hail ratings are based on a scale of 1-4, with 4 being the highest class. Ask us about which Roofing System would be the best for you.
