"Stop Leak" Screw Covers For Metal Roofs
"Kwik-Kaps" are self-sealing 1 1/2-in. dia. aluminum discs that mold themselves to screw heads to prevent rust, leaks, and also keep the screws from working loose.
The underside of each disc is coated with an asphalt adhesive. You simply clean the area around the screw or nail head, center the disc over the top of it, and use the tool that comes with the kit to press down on the disc and twist. Takes only seconds per disc to apply.
"It's a neat repair that eliminates the need to replace the fasteners or to use messy caulks or sealers," says Rayburn. "The discs are reinforced with a special high density polymer film which provides extraordinary resistance, and the aluminum foil reflects heat and ultraviolet light which prematurely damages other leak stop sealers. What's more, you can paint right over these discs as soon as they're installed, if desired."
A sample kit containing 100 discs and a 3-in. long wooden "demo" tool sells for $15 plus S&H. A case containing 1,000 discs sells for $95.40 plus S&H. For high volume use a 28-in. long steel applicator tool is available with a rubber grip on one end and a heavy duty plastic head on the other. It sells for $30 plus S&H.
