The Benefits of Metal Roofs
The appeal of metal roofs lies in their durability, energy savings and non-combustible properties. By reflecting the sun and absorbing its heat, metal roof systems prevent the building from heating up as much in the summer months. This allows the owners of commercial and industrial buildings such as plazas, warehouses and office buildings to cut on air conditioning costs by up to 30%.
The lifespan of a metal roof can be significantly increased if protective coatings are applied. We highly recommend the following coatings to protect your roof, building and tenants. The sealants we use are water based, LEED approved, environmentally friendly and are made in Canada.
- SpraySeal R-200 is a spray applied, instant-set, waterproofing protective coating layered directly onto a metal roof. Compared to solvent based coatings, it is an eco-friendly solution with non-toxic ingredients and which requires no heat or open flames upon installation. It works to prevent leaks in vulnerable areas of the roof such as seams, at the fasteners and in rusted spots, thereby increasing the life span of your roof. Formulated to work with metal, Spray Seal R-200 contracts and expands with the roof throughout weather fluctuations ensuring a perfect seal.
- AcriSeal is a white, reflective coating applied on top of the SpraySeal R-200 layer. In the same fashion, it flexibly contracts and expands with the metal. This additional coat of protection gives a white surface to the metal roof and reflects UV rays, lowering your monthly expenses on air conditioning.
