Concrete Silo Restoration Process
- We complete a job safety analysis prior to beginning work.
- Upon safely rigging or accessing the silos, we prepare the surfaces by water blast cleaning to remove loose and flaking old coatings and to expose concrete areas requiring repair.
- Inferior concrete is removed exposing rebar.
- Rebar is cleaned, abraded and primed to reduce further rusting which can be the cause of spalled concrete.
- After surface preparation work is complete, we apply a primer/sealer coat to the concrete silos.
- An elastomeric coating is applied to the silos. Elastomeric coatings are waterproof and resist wind-driven rain due to their flexibility. Large projects specified with an elastomeric coating come with a 5-year labor and material warranty guaranteeing the coating will not chip, peel or flake.
Silo Coating And Head House Roofs Process
- After removing the existing roofing by pressure washing, scraping, grinding and/or sandblasting, we repair splits, blisters and punctures on the roof.
- We apply an asphalt-based urethane elastomer roofing system. Applying this in a heavy-duty, thick film manner provides a seamless, monolithic membrane. Aggregate incorporated into the roofing system provides slip resistance.
These steel bolted silos were allowing moisture intrusion due to the pressure of the product and mother nature creating small voids in the flanges of the panels. TMI applied a urethane elastomer seam sealing product to the bolt heads and ends and the flanges of the panels to create a watertight seal prior to applying the exterior coating system.
