Watch the video above to see how we used Turbo Poly Seal to save a metal roof from a disaster. In this video, we used Turbo Poly Seal, but we could have used Super Silicone Seal too, they both perform equally well. The advantage of Super Silicone Seal is that you don’t need to coat it with a protective coating against ultraviolets.

Follow these steps to ensure proper repair:

  1. Use a steel wire brush to scrub the surface. (remove dust)
  2. Use masking tape to tape off 21/2″ from either side of seam or crack (optional, but looks clean when done)
  3. Measure and cut the correct length of fleece
  4. Brush 1 thick coat either the Turbo Poly Seal or Super Silicone Seal on both sides of crack or seam
  5. Embed the polyester fleece into the freshly painted coat (make sure there are no wrinkles)
  6. Apply another coat over the fleece making sure the fiber doesn’t show
  7. Remove the masking tape

1 thought on “Turbo Poly Seal – Super Silicone Seal”

  1. Hello Mr Ferreira –
    I have a 20 year old sun roof with a shed type metal roof. The roof is made of 4’x8′ pre-fab “insulated” units connected on the top of the roof by metal ribs running vertically. The roof leaks during heavy rains. My research leads me to believe that water penetrates the caulk seal around the metal ribs. So I have to reseal around the ribs which is not so easy since there is quite a layer of caulk on top of the ribs thanks to a lousy attempted repair job by the installer many years ago. I spoke with you briefly on the phone two weeks ago and you advised my to use your Super Silicon Seal product which I plan to order
    My plan is to first apply the silicon sealer, then go over with a layer of your gauze, and then a final application of silicon sealer. Is this the approach I should use?

    I should also add that I believe there is a condensation problem that occurs inside the pre-fab roof sections. When conditions are right during the winter months the east facing sunroom heats up on a sunny morning. That inside warm air then meets the cold air inside the roof panel creating condensation. The condensate then travels down a trim strip on the inside of the roof to the edge of the eaves where it drips out.

    I’m hoping the reseal work on the outside of the roof also helps cold air intrusion and prevents this condensation problem. Any ideas you have in this regard would be appreciated
