Crown Roofing Chicagoland Metal Roof

Metal Roofing has a long history and a great future as a Roofing option for Chicagoland ResidentialCommercial and Industrial buildings. The earliest Metal Roofs were “standing seam” roofs that skilled contractors fabricated on-site from large rolls of sheet metal. These days, most new Metal Roofing in Chicagoland comes in the form of factory-made steel panels. Ridges formed in the panels create overlapping seams during roof installation. A factory-applied finish provides corrosion resistance and color choices.

Metal roofs have an expected life of 40-50 years, but without frequent, costly repairs, they rarely last that long. More often than not, these repairs are just temporary solutions that don’t truly fix the problem. Metal roofs generally remain structurally sound for their entire 40-50 year life, but on top of the frequent repairs, they can be riddled with leaks. These leaks often lead to premature removal and replacement. Many metal roofs never reach their expected life because building owners grow tired of dumping money into constant repairs that never seem to work.


A Silicone Roof Coating Restoration (RCR) from Progressive Materials is the optimal solution to a leak-prone metal roof. By applying a thin layer of silicone directly to the metal roof surface, you can eliminate leaks and repairs for up to 20 years. A large portion of leaks on metal roofs are the result of failure at roof seams, fasteners, or flashings. Our RCR completely seals these features and effectively eliminates the risk of leaks at these common weak points.

Metal Roof Concerns:

• Seams often lead to leaks
• Fasteners backout, allow heat loss, and can leak
• Roof expands and contracts with temperature swings
• Rust leads to roof failure
• Flashings deteriorate and leak

RCR Solutions:

• 100% seamless means no leaks
• Completely encapsulates fasteners
• Elasticity ensures no gaps in roof surface
• Stops current and prevents future rusting
• Silicone is self-flashing

Most metal roofs can be coated with a crew of 2-3 men, depending on the project size and time constraints. We also offer a translucent silicone coating for use on fiberglass skylights. Contact Us today to learn more.
