Mesh for tin roofing

Mesh types for liquid applied roofing projects

When performing the fully reinforced system over a leaky metal roof, we choose between five versions of mesh. 

In the photo, the mesh to the right is the standard version, noted for elasticity in all directions to improve contouring to the roof profile.

The mesh on the left is used on metal panels where appearance and smoothness is most important, such as a roof outside a window.  Rarely is this version used for “lumpy” areas, inside gutter work or other situations where elasticity is truly needed.
