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 reinforced with fabric (the best and most flexible fabric in the market) reinforcement embedded in acrylic elastomeric roof coatings. Exposed fasteners are sealed from the elements with premium caulking. Finally, the entire surface of the roof is protected with an elastomeric roof coating. This system is an effective method for preserving an existing metal roof without the need for costly metal repair or replacement.
