Metal Building Renovation Project – Custom Engineering

For this renovation project, a customer wanted to convert an existing metal building from single use to a multi-tenant. Metalguard provided a custom engineered solution to facilitate the usage changes. Substantial engineering changes were required to prepare the building for the door installation. Metalguard removed 13 cross braces and engineered and installed a combination of portals and bracing systems. This allowed the overhead doors to be installed.

This was an extensive renovation project on a 700ft long building. The Metalguard team replaced 1700 linear feet of wall panels, installed 500 linear feet of interior liner panel , repaired various wall penetrations, and changed out all of the exterior trim. 55 man doors were installed, including frames and hardware. For the overhead doors, the engineered solution supported the installation of 52 overhead garage doors.

For this renovation project, a customer wanted to repurpose an existing metal building. Our team converted an outside uninsulated storage area for internal use.  We framed a metal wall where there was just an open area, and installed metal wall panels. We installed retro R-25 insulation to the underside of the existing roof.  Finally, we framed and installed an 18’ x 23’ overhead door. Our customer was happy with the results, and the increased functionality provided by the metal building renovation.

Metal Roof Repairs and Maintenance

As an experienced metal building contractor, Metalguard can diagnose your metal roof issues and develop the best solution for you. We can replace or repair only what is necessary. Not all metal roofs require a complete replacement. Therefore, sometimes the most effective solution for our clients includes a partial metal roof replacement, and repairs on the rest of the existing metal roof. This extends the life of the metal building and provides the best value for client.

Metal Building Repairs

These photos show a current Metalguard project that involves replacing part of the metal roof. This metal roof was leaking, so to fix the issue, we sealed the lower metal roof and upper metal roof. First, because of a previous coating, we installed a larger amount of new material to cover the old material.  Then, on the rest of the existing metal roof panels our team sealed the fasteners. The photos show the repaired metal roof. The light colored areas are new metal roof panels, and the white dots are sealed fasteners. Replacing where necessary, and repairing the rest of the roof represented the best value for the client.

We recommend fixing broken metal roof panels and performing maintenance as needed to extend the life of your metal building. Fixing the broken sections of the metal roof and performing maintenance on the rest, results in extended life for metal buildings.

Metal Building Roof Inspection Process

Metal roof repairs include thorough inspections. The Metalguard team got down on their hands and knees to find this leak in the metal roof. One issue we found was a crack on the top of a high metal rib.  The rust around the two slits, indicates the metal roof panel damage occurred some time ago.  The top of the metal high rib is a small area 1” wide, consistent with expectations for a small leak. Our team caulked the crack in the metal roof to restore the metal roof panel integrity.

Metal roof inspection discovered this crack in the metal roof. Our team caulked the crack.

Metal Roof Repairs

Our metal roof inspections revealed one more cracked panel in the same area. This cracked metal panel is at the ridge cap and in the middle you can also see a very small crack.  For a roof this large a small problem like this can be hard to find without the help of our team, or a heavy rain.
