Metal Roof Repairs
Sometimes, people just go overboard with mastic when trying to repair a metal roof leak. Below you can see a before and after of a metal building roof that we repaired. The problem was not with the panels, but the transition trim. However, while trying to fix the leaking metal roof they damaged the panels. We replaced the original problem, the trim, and the problem that was created, the panels, and the now, the leaking roof problem is solved.
Sealing Metal Roof Leaks
To the left a roof sealing in process.
A metal roof does not require a coating application to be leak free. Professional metal roofer.
During the sealing application process a fluid applied seamless membrane is installed at every potential water entry point. Fasteners, penetrations, transitions, ridge cap, and rake trim, are common roof areas requiring sealing.
A roof coating is beneficial, however, if the budget isn’t sufficient, a sealing application can be a very good option.

Tilt Wall Repair for Collapsed Roof
These pictures show where a roof was overwhelmed by rain from a tropical storm.
The roof actually collapsed onto a pile of sheet rock. The tilt-wall bowed out and the beam broke free from the cement wall leaving a hole.
First, we shored up the Large I beam. Then we installed bolt through welded “stiff-backs” which straightened out the wall. We then lifted the beam back into place. Then 2 welded channels were installed by bolting them through the wall
It was an unusual event that caused the problem
