I recently climbed a ladder to look at a standing seam roof that is 17 years old and generally in good shape however snow brakes of the AP 400 variety which are now missing seem to have caused damage to the seams making small tears in the standing seam where they were. How can these tears be repaired? Additionally, what kind of product can be used to correct the damage caused by snow to the plumbing vents without affecting the integrity of the roof? Thank you

Paul, I am not sure the seam really need repairs with anything but some proper sealant. If there is not water infiltration issues not, it is likely they are still intact. The metal you are seeing on the seam is seamed with another panel and it is unlikely the tear was through both laters. Dectite boots are great for standing seam applications.
