What's a Metal Roof?
Metal Roofing is custom fabricated or field formed roofing composed of single layer of metal sheets installed over structural substrate. Includes aluminum, copper, lead, steel, stainless steel, monel, and terne sheet metal roofing.
Types of Metal Roof

Batten Seam Sheet Metal Roofing
Flat Seam Sheet Metal Roofing
Tinplate and Ternplate Roofing
Reflectivity of Metal Roofs
The solar reflectivity of metal roofs depends on the color of the finish.
Dark colored metal roofs can reach 180°F or more in the summer. The heat load of a black roof can severely degrade the performance of airconditioning equipment.
Elastomeric provide the highest reflectivity and is a very popular option for building owners. Leaks in metal roofs are difficult to isolate and a seamless roof coating system is the best alternative to roof replacement. White roof coating can reflect up to 90% of the heat from the sun.

Why Consider a Metal Roof Coating Application?
A metal roof coating can extend the life of your roof by 10 or more years. Metal roof leaks are difficult to locate. Roof leaks can come from seams, fasteners, flashings and penetrations. It does not matter if the roof is nearly flat or pitched, old or new. It will leak.
Roof replacement is very disruptive to your operations.
BEFORE: This metal roof was built in the 1970's and has survived numerous typhoons. It has lots of leaks and is completely rusted. Roof replacement was already scheduled when the building manager suggested an elastomeric roof coating system to restore the roof.
Metal Roof Restoration Process
Cleaning and Surface Preparation
The entire metal roof was thoroughly washed using a 3,000 psi pressure washer. A biodegradeable degreaser was used to ensure a clean surface. All seams, flashings and penetrations were carefully sealed to render the roof watertight.
Priming ensures a good adhesion between the metal roof surface and the elastomeric coating. We have primers for rusted metal roofs.
30 dry mils of elastomeric roof coating is applied on the entire metal roof in 2 coats.
AFTER: The metal roof coating job added 10 years to the life of this roof. The seamless membrane solved the leaks and there was a noticeable temperature reduction in the building. The owner was very pleased that he had the warehouse behind it coated with elastomeric roof coatings as well.
