Industrial Roof Assessments
What is a Metal Roof Recovery System?
According to the Metal Building Manufacturers Association (MBMA), over half of the industrial buildings that are one-story or two-story engineered constructions have metal roofs on them. Many times, a metal roof has been coated to extend its life. However, after long periods of use, or if the coating or workmanship was substandard, there could be some major issues. A quality metal roof recovery system eliminates leaking, prevents rust and adds R value to your current roof. In addition, a good metal system adds layers of insulation before it’s sealed with a unique membrane for protection.
The Installation Process
Once your industrial roof has been assessed and measured, expert installers will begin the process of putting in your metal roof recovery system. They will start by filling in the roofing flues with lightweight insulation cut to size. To provide additional stability, the team will then add an extra layer of insulation perpendicular to the first layer. Once the insulation is set, a membrane covers the entire area and secured with special metal fasteners. This membrane is then heat-welded into place with a robotic welder. Any areas that are inaccessible to the robotic welder are carefully hand-welded.
Rather than replacing your entire roof, metal roof recovery systems are a great alternative. Not only is a recovery system more affordable, it is also energy-efficient and quite durable. Better than stop-gap measures like coatings, an excellent metal roof recovery system provides long life to your building’s roof and is a worthwhile investment.
