What is Metal Roof Restoration?
A complete waterproofing system for metal roofs that inhibits rust, stops leaks and provides an energy efficient, long-lasting and attractive finish coat for years of service. All seams are strengthened with fabric reinforcement embedded into our acrylic elastomeric roof coating.
Exposed fasteners are sealed from the elements with premium caulking. The entire roof surface is protected with one of Conklin’s industry-leading roof coatings when applied by AeroFoam. AeroFoam's system is an effective method for preserving an existing metal roof without the need for costly metal repair or replacement.
What Can this System Do for You?
- Stop leaks at seams where they most occur.
- Extend the life of your roof.
- Overcome metal design flaws
- Reduce air conditioning costs
The Conklin MR System™ from AeroFoam protects your metal roof from the elements with a highly-durable, seamless membrane. Stops leaks where they occur most by sealing all seams, fasteners and penetrations with a combination of the best acrylic elastomeric coatings on the market, strengthened with fabric reinforcement. This ensures that the elements cannot get to your most valuable items.
Extend Your Roof’s Life
Conklin’s MR Systems applied by AeroFoam offers additional benefits beyond stopping leaks and inhibiting rust. Conklin's highly-reflective roof coatings applied by AeroFoam reduce the destructive thermal shock experienced by metal roofs during extreme fluctuations in temperature. This minimizes the amount of expansion and contraction experienced by the roof and greatly increases its useable life.
Save Money By Saving Energy
The highly-reflective coating also provides significant energy savings. By reflecting up to 85 percent of the sun’s ultraviolet energy rather than absorbing it in the form of heat, Conklin Energy Star roof coatings can drastically reduce cooling costs. The benefit can be felt in a cooler living or workspace and in your pocketbook.
Our three exceptional roof coatings from Conklin and applied by AeroFoam are designed to meet the needs of your particular project. Benchmark®, our premier coating offers the ultimate in flexibility and strength, Rapid Roof III®, the workhorse of the Conklin line and Rapid Roof HV, our economical alternative, delivering Conklin quality without the costly code approvals and fire ratings.
Tested. Proven. Trusted.
Conklin Roofing Systems provided by AeroFoam have been tested, proven and trusted by building owners nationwide since 1977. Our systems are tested and approved by major code approval agencies, such as Factory Mutual (FM) and Underwriters’ Laboratories (UL). Architects, specifiers, building owners and facility managers around the country rely on Conklin Roofing Systems to protect the valuable contents of their buildings.
Conklin Metal Roofing Systems that applied by AeroFoam are designed to provide longterm performance at a fraction of the cost of metal replacement.
Additionally, there are financial benefits to metal roof restoration systems. Metal roof restoration can be expensed as a repair or maintenance cost while roof replacement must be capitalized.
Metal Roof System Application
- Primer: After proper surface preparation,
rusted surfaces are primed with
Metal Ready® Universal rust inhibiting metal primer.
- Caulking: All fastener heads are caulked
with Kwik Kaulk®
Fastener Grade to prevent leaks.
- Seam Treatment: All metal seams are
waterproofed with Conklin butyl tape
or durable Spunflex fabric sandwiched between two layers of base coat.
- Finish Coat: A white, reflective top
coat is applied for durability
and energy efficiency.
Light Roofs, Bright Ideas
With AeroFoam using Conklin Energy Star labeled products on a roof, they can lower roof surface temperatures by 15 to 30 percent and decrease the amount of heat transferred into the building’s interior, thus reducing cooling costs and reducing air pollution.
