Can the steel SIP roof be field painted? For instance, if there is a 24" overhang and let's say one would want to paint the 24" underside the same color like that of the stucco wall, could it be done? Would it have to be sprayed on or rolled on? Any special surface prep?
Of course the rest of the roof would be covered with a standing seam metal roof an the fascia area would get covered with this paneling.
The other question I had is that I was told metal roofs NO LONGER require an extra slop sheet. I was told:
to the primer now installed on the back side of panels and the reduced
of asphalt in the traditional 15 and 30 lb felts, slip sheets are no
longer needed. The underlayments today act as slip sheets used to in
the past. That being said, many contractors will use 1 layer of 30 lb
felt or 2 layers of 15 lb felt to be most cost
effective. Other underlayments that carry higher water proofing like
“peel and sticks” are mainly used in low slope (3/12 and lower)
applications or where ever this potential for high snow loads. These
products can be used anywhere and at any time but are
pretty pricey. They are the most water tight roof however. Other
underlayments, such as Versashield, provide a Class A fire rating to the
roofing system due to its fiberglass mat and fire retarding
characteristics. A lot of options to consider.
Yes any paint suitable for metal will work, Home Depot has a glidden paint for metal siding that I have used and no prep needed.
can be sprayed , rolled or brushed.No surface prep needed.
You need 1 slip sheet (not an extra one)does not matter what it is, but 30# felt- minimum is good, anything to seperate metal roof to metal deck.
Peel N Sticks can be used on all splopes and in our area are required on ALL roofs as a secondary water barrier (hurricane protection) thanks to insurance company lobbyists
