Resolving Metal Roofing Issues with a Cost Effective Roof Coating System

Posted by Nicole Gale on Wed, Dec 11, 2013 @ 11:00 AM

The AcryShield Roof Maintenance (ARM) Systems is an ideal roof coating system as it provides an excellent alternative to a metal roof replacement with half the cost and much less time and labor.

A Cost Effective Approach to Roof Failures

The AcryShield Roof Maintenance System is an economical approach as material costs and labor are minimalized, replacing only necessary areas/panels – not the entire roof.  The ARM System allows you to operate your business as usual, with no loss of time to the tenants or occupants inside the building. This permits you to stay open during application with minimal noise disruption and no harmful or strong odors. These systems are renewable indefinitely; delivering an environmentally friendly system that preserves your existing roof membrane while eliminating any landfill wasteand fees. The ARM System can be recoated every 10 or so years, allowing you to keep your existing roof watertight without ever having to worry about a costly traditional roof replacement.

How the ARM System Works

The ARM System over metal roofing uses our RustShield A120 to insure excellent adhesion and provide outstanding resistance to flash rusting. All seams and fasteners are reinforced with butyl tape to insure a tight seal at these locations. The roof is then coated with a pass of our Acryshield coating tinted to a light or dark gray. This insures all components are protected and allows faster curing times by using a darker color.  Then a coat of AcryShield top coat (which can be custom tinted to match your building scheme) is applied delivering industry leading UV protection, longevity and brightness. These top coats are formulated for superior dirt pick-up resistance and protection against biological attach, such as algae and mold.

Additional Benefits
This fluid applied system is custom tailored to solve your particular metal roofing issues, as it is spray applied - creating a seamless, fully adhered, and watertight membrane over the existing metal roof.  The ARM System simultaneously acts as a protectant to your existing metal roof and a Cool Roof System. These roofing systems are loaded with high levels of UV blocking pigments that fight against early roof degradation caused by sun damage and UV rays, reducing your roof maintenance costs. At the same time, the UV blocking pigments reflect the sun’s heat away from the building and in turn, keep the air temperature inside the building substantially lower. With a long history of proven performance, the AcryShield Roof Maintenance System is an ideal choice for restoring your metal roof.
