The metal restoration process begins with power washing the roof, removing rust from the surface using a food-grade phosphoric acid, which is environmentally friendly. The second step is applying a rust-inhibiting primer to prepare the surface. Rapid Roof, an acrylic elastomeric coating, is sprayed onto the seams, and a Kevlar fabric product (SpunFlex) is then embedded therein. Fastener-grade caulk (Kwik Kaulk®) is applied to seal all screw heads. The 18-year system ends with a top coat of polyurethane acrylic coating (PUMA XL®). This 18-year warranty is renewable for another 18 years if roof is power-washed and PUMA XL® is reapplied.
