CARLISLE RETROFIT ROOFING SYSTEMS
Building a Foundation for Lasting Solutions
For more than 45 years, Carlisle SynTec has manufactured quality roof systems – systems that can turn a failing metal roof into a durable, long-lasting rooftop. Carlisle’s single-ply solutions extend the life of metal roofs without the need for costly tear-offs and replacements.
Improving a Bleak Rooftop View
Metal roofs are not a lost cause. Thanks to Carlisle’s proven metal retrofit systems, there is a long-term, cost-effective solution that meets the needs of most buildings. The process builds upon the existing metal roof, filling the flutes and covering the metal deck with premium Carlisle insulation and then either mechanically fastening or adhering a Carlisle single-ply membrane to the top
Revealing the Less-than-lustrous Side of Metal
Satisfaction with a metal roof can be short lived. The once-alluring benefits of low installation cost and fire resistance can dull in comparison to the necessary upkeep. In just a few years, fastener back-out and rust can lead to leaks that require costly maintenance.
Coatings and spray-on foams are one possible solution; however, coatings will need to be reapplied every three to five years while poorly applied spray-on foams can result in unnecessary and excessive pounding water.
Starting over may seem like the surest means to restore water tightness, but beware, as replacing the metal roof comes with added risks. Installation of a new metal roof can disrupt operations and expose the interior of the building to the possibility of roof leaks.
BENEFITS OF A CARLISLE METAL RETROFIT SYSTEM
- Preserves the existing metal roof to prevent further deterioration
- Creates a stable system by reducing expansion and contraction
- Provides a quieter roof system for occupants
- Improves R-value and saves energy
- Allows a cool-roof option for additional energy savings
Carlisle offers a number of roof system options that can be directly installed over a metal roof, fully encapsulating the rooftop without the need for prepping, priming or costly removal. This helps to speed up installations while creating a more durable rooftop void of any gaps in coverage. What’s more, every Carlisle roof system is backed by the roofing industry’s most comprehensive warranties, with terms as long as 20 years.
