How to install a metal roof restoration coating system [+ video]

Watch as Elmer's Roofing Service, a professional Conklin roofing contractor, installs a metal restoration coating system on the rusted metal roof of the All Brands Appliances building in Neenah, Wisconsin.

The roof area is 190 squares. The job was started in the beginning of October of 2010 in Wisconsin, which is somewhat pushing it temperature-wise for a roof coating installation (to find out why, please contact Elmer).

The crew begins by pressure-washing the roof with a cleaning agent, then they install the fabric-reinforced primer over the corrugated metal panels. Then they base coat the horizontal and vertical seams of the panels and seal all the fasteners with caulk. Finally, the crew installed the white reflective top coat.

Elmer also gives you a behind-the-scenes look at the equipment they are using to give you a sense of what is involved with installing metal roof restoration systems (including a gas-powered Graco 733 pump which is hooked up to the drum on the truck which is filled with the Conklin roof coating material, and more).

  3. If you are considering a metal roof installation on your house or at your company's premises, you may be asking yourself whether you should hire someone to do it or give it a try yourself. There are excellent justifications for either decision.

  4. I've always wondered why metal roofing had to be coated. Is it to protect the metal from rusting? That's the only explanation that I can think of. It would make sense to apply some sort of waterproof coating to make sure your metal roofing won't rust.

  5. Back in 2011 I had Roof Repair NYC install my first metal roofing system. I was amazed at the quality of insulation offered by the system. Its durability from high temperatures, and intense climate conditions won me over instantly. I can recommend these systems to anyone who is looking for true quality.

  6. I want to install metal roofing over shingle roof. It is a double wide, and I think this way would be more efficient and less messy. I also heard it helps to reduce energy.
