Replacing just the damaged parts of the wall panels

The damaged sections of the metal wall panels were replaced, the bottom 4'.

 The bottom of the metal building wall panel was rusted out and pushed out in places on this airport hangar.  The bottom 4' of metal wall panel, base angle and insulation were replaced.  The panels are the same color, the old top panels are just dirty. This was much affordable than replacing the entire panel.

Below, rusted out holes at the eave, in a metal roof repairs.

This metal building had rusted thru metal roof panels along the eave, along with other areas around the roof.   This caused the metal roof to leak.

Leaks along the edge, or eave, of a metal roof is extremely common.  It is due to improper installation of closures at the eave between the bottom of the roof panel and the eave strut.  As part of our repair process we follow Metalguard repair procedures that seals the metal roof eave to prevent this from happening in the future.

The reason the metal roof panels rot out at the eave of the roof is because the metal building insulation gets wet.  It stays wet ant rusts out the underside of the roof panel.  All because of improper eave detail.

The rusted metal roof panels at the eave on this rusty leaking metal roof were cut out and replaced with new matching metal panels.  The seams where the old and new panels were joined were sealed using butyl caulk tape between the panels.  This provides a long term water tight seal. In addition to the rusted thru eave panels, all other panels found to be beyond repair on the roof were replaced.  Houston, TX
