Even though the metal roof on your commercial building is a strong, durable material, it can start to develop surface rust and leaks with long-term exposure to the elements. Seasonal temperature fluctuations can loosen and weaken fasteners, and the yearly barrage of rain, ice, snow, and harsh UV rays can eat away at the manufacturer’s protective finish.

H.E.R. is a moisture-cure, polyurethane sealant created for use with the ERSystems® metal roof restoration solution. Flashing-grade H.E.R provides superior adhesion to metal and forms a tough, water-tight membrane that bends and stretches with the roof. Applying H.E.R is one of the four key steps in a metal roof restoration. First, the roof is cleaned and prepared. Second, any corroded areas are treated with rust-inhibiting primer.
