How to Extend the Life of Your Shipping Container Roofby David Roy Professional Housing Solution Manufacturer
It has been a hectic life lived by the shipping containers until they were retired from overseas service work. Following a single ocean crossing, lots of shipping steel office container is retired but the rest may end up journeying the high seas three to five times before hitting their golden years.
It's at this stage that in the storage business they are bought and begin a new career, or they are modified into a house or small business or else, they get buried and become a storm shelter. For a shipping container, one item that's critical to continue is the condition of the container's roof and to perform in any of these areas.
This roofing is simply corrugated sheet metal with a small side to side pitch to drain water. The steel is a special formulation called Cor-Ten steel that by forming rust layer will protect itself and the deterioration of steel office container building stops.
The roofing will continue to deteriorate if water puddles in a particular spot and in the container roof you may encounter small pinholes. For this problem, a simple Google search gives you many fixes that you can select from and for your consideration, I would like to add another one here.
During an inspection in your container roofing material if you find a large tear or another kind of opening you'll need to perform a complete tear-off and replace the roof or repair that with patches, but if your roof condition is deteriorating then you just have to look into Kool Seal reflective roof coatings.
The Kool Seal Elastomeric roof coating system forms a heavy rubber-like blanket of protection that expands and contracts along with your roof and provides protection against moisture.
From -10F to 160F it remains flexible. You'll have a long-lasting and efficient roof system on the shipping container just by simply following the manufactures application instructions and you'll seal up any small pin holes that may have formed.
At many major home improvement retailers and at mobile home part retailers, you will find Kool Seal for modern steel office container.
