Highway 69 Storage - Mary Wiegold

What type of water tight roofing or coating would you recommend?
Our metal storage buildings are getting up in age and we want to protect the roofing from wear/water damage due to roof screws loosening.

Mary,

My name is Josh Lubenow and work for Simon Roofing. We are a manufacturer and installer of liquid applied systems for metal roofs. After installation of our system is complete you would get a 10-15 or 20 year NDL labor and materials warranty depending on the system you choose to go with.

We work a lot with Tana Bryant, district manager for SecureCare Self storage, who is also a member of this group. I will be have a table at the seminar in Ashville in February. Please feel free to contact me directly to discuss this in more detail.

We have used Centimark Corp. but they are pricey. They do a very thorough job and we have used them to replace loose screws as well as adding a waterproof membrane to a roof.

Mary,
We would recommend using a high solids silicone. They allow for expansion and contraction in the metal roof though temperature changes. With the appropriate preparation and qualified contractor, you can get up to a 20 year manufacturer’s material and labor warranty.

With proper care and maintenance a roof coating system can extend the life of your existing roof for many years, for a fraction of the cost of a traditional reroof.

We will have a table at the show in Asheville and will be happy to answer any additional questions you may have.

We would be glad to help you with your roofing needs. Please call us directly at 919-334-6955 if we can be of further assistance.

After 30 years in the business, suggest tightening/replacing screws. Eventually you will have too tighten/replace screws and having to remove coating is a huge, time consuming chore.

Thanks for the recommendation....
we agree with the oversize screw replacements. But........where do we find silo calking?
