What is your opinion of metal roof coatings on a sloped roof? Is it a viable method for eliminating leaks?

It probably will not be a good long term solution

What do you consider long term? Just curious

An elastomeric coating might work for 2 - 3 years

There are some coatings that we have used on flat roof applications that have life cycle tests on them that indicate 10 year increments. What is leaking on the roof and can that be repaired?

Finding the leak has been the difficulty. We had the flat roofs "redone" but the leaks continued, so the next theory is where the slopes meet - ie the dormers. Chasing leaks is always a mystery.

Try to get someone out there with an IR camera and that will help narrow the searching.

I'm assuming if the IR shows an area with alot of heat escaping that would be an area with a leak? I apprciate all of your help!

IR will show where the moisture is.
