Material Stored: Aircraft hanger
Issue: Leaking metal, low pitch roof.
In addition to concrete and steel silos, Marietta Silos offers waterproof coating for a variety of metal structures. In this case, the metal roof on an aircraft hanger building was leaking.
To prep the roof for application of a waterproof coating, deteriorated sections were repaired, as seen in the image to the right, and coated with a base primer.
The image above shows a larger view of the metal roof as it is prepped for coating. Through the preparation process the roof was pressure washed and deteriorated/corroded metal was replaced and patched. In addition, areas at greatest risk for leaks were filled with a rubber filler material and durable mesh to ensure the greatest level of protection, shown in the image as the brighter white lines. Roof skylights are patched and covered with a clear top coat.
After filling areas of concern the roof was finished with the rubberized top coat, chosen specifically for its ability to adhere directly to the surface. Available in a variety of colors, the top coat provides high flexibility which makes it suitable for a variety of weather extremes.
This a proven industrial roof coating system can be used on metal or concrete roofs to keep the elements out and the inside dry.
