I recently purchased property that came with a WWII era quansut hut that I have turned into a fairly nice general purpose shop.
My problem is the roof leaks during winter rains, I have had several contractors out for quotes and they are fairly expensive with their estimates, because it has a steel roof and it is round most contractors have had a hard time trying to find a suitable roofing material that is not astronomically expensive.
The building is sound and I would think should not be that hard to roof.
One contractor suggested ripping the steel roof off and replacing it with plywood and a composition roof, prohibitively expensive as he would only put the roof on once that was done.
Another suggested the use of MetAcrylics again very expensive, the use of a hot tar roof ended with the contractor saying the tar would run off on the lower sections of the hut and would not reccomend using tar.
I have put extensive time into this shop and would like to know if anyone has any experience with something like it and any help would be appreciated.
