Application


1.0 Examination:

A- Verify conditions are acceptable for application of roof restoration system.

B- Inspect built up roof to receive roof coating and make sure they are clean, sound, properly prepared and free of moisture, dirt, debris or other contaminants.

C– A comprehensive moisture survey is to be conducted to locate and identify areas of trapped moisture and saturated insulation.

D– Verify that all on-roof items, penetrations, mechanical equipment, hvac drains are in place and secure. All air conditioning and air intake vents should be suitably protected or closed.

E– Verify that areas within the vicinity of the application area as protected from overspray.

F– Verify that all roof drains, gutters, downspouts, catch basins are clean and in working order.

2.0 Preparation:

A- Cleaning: The entire built up roof surface must be clean, sound, dry and free of any contaminants that would interfere with the proper adhesion of the roof coating. This may require pressure washing, scraping, wire brushing or other means necessary while observing responsible trade practices. All loose paint and rust should be removed before applying any product.

B- Ponding Water: Contractor shall make every effort to mechanically eliminate all ponding water areas on the built up roof prior to application of any roof coating product. For roofs with minor ponding (ie. small puddles less than 1/2″ deep) that cannot be corrected, consider using our solvent system.

C- Repairs: Wet roof insulation and damaged membranes are to be removed and replaced as necessary to match existing specified material. All ponds that hold water over 1″ for more than 48 hours should be mechanically diverted.

D- Do not apply coatings until all unsatisfactory conditions have been corrected in a manner acceptable to the original built up roofing manufacturer.

3.0 Application:

A- Inspect built up roof to receive roof coating. Always perform a coating adhesion test before doing the entire job.

B- Primer: Entire built up roof shall be primed using the appropriate primer and following the application rates specified in the table below.

C- Seams: All seams, penetrations and parapet walls should be flashed using SeamStitch Polyester Roofing Fabric and PrimeLock Bonding Primer. Apply a thin coat of PrimeLockT Bonding Primer over the seam and roll out 6″ fabric over the seam and apply another coat of PrimeLockT Bonding Primer over the fabric. Encapsulate the fabric with the appropriate elastomeric coating and feathering it at least 2″ to 3″ past the edge of the fabric. Substitute PrimeLockT Bonding Primer with EnergyGuard® Butyl Rubber Coating when installing a solvent system. Read 2.02 for details.

D- Cracks/Splits: Repair all cracks and splits using the same method as seam preparation above. If cracks and splits are all over the built up roof , a full fabric system will be necessary.

E- Blisters: All blisters must be cut out and inspected for moisture content. Cut area must be thoroughly dry before applying any roof coating. Use the same repair procedure for seams.

F- Base Coat: Apply appropriate base coat using the application rates specified in the table below. Allow to dry thoroughly for 8 – 12 hours depending on humidity and temperature.

G- Top Coat: Apply appropriate top coat in a cross-hatch technique using the application rates specified in the table below. Allow to dry and cure before exposing to foot traffic.

H- Standard System: Use the Acrylic System for built up roofs with good slope and no ponding water issues. Use the Solvent System for built up roofs with minor ponding issues or when outdoor temperatures are no longer favorable for acrylic coatings.

I- Acrylic Fabric Reinforced System: SeamStitch Polyester Roofing Fabric should be installed on the entire built up roof surface. Apply a thin coat of PrimeLockT Bonding Primer on the built up roof surface, roll out 40″ SeamStitch Polyester Roofing fabric making sure there are no air pockets and the fabric lays as flat as possible. Apply another coat of PrimeLock Bonding Primer to totally saturate the fabric. Overlap edges of SeamStitch Polyester Roofing Fabric at least 4″.

J- Solvent Fabric Reinforced System: SeamStitch Polyester Roofing Fabric should be installed on the entire built up roof surface. Prime the entire roof with PrimeLockT MultiService Primer. Apply a thin coat of EnergyGuardT Butyl Rubber Coating on the roof surface, roll out 40″ SeamStitch Polyester Roofing Fabric making sure there are no air pockets and the fabric lays as flat as possible. Apply another coat of EnergyGuard Butyl Rubber Coating to totally saturate the fabric. Overlap edges of fabric at least 4″.

      I ordered a gallon of Liquid Rubber last summer, and inquired if it could be spread with an adhesive applicator trowel; the sales person was not aware of this having been tried. I tried using a commercially available trowel with 4 sawtooth teeth per inch, and 0.135 inch notch depths, holding the trowel at about a 45 degree tilt.

      Everyone was SUPER helpful and knew the product, properties and application methods well. I applied to product on the trailer in about a 2-hour period one evening. It was tricky with the application, from a novice who had not done this before.

      Donna,your staff and your customer service is the reason we buy from you. You had asked us several months ago if we would write up something for your Website. We wanted to get some additional orders first before coming to conclusions.

      We have completed the resurfacing of our commercial roof back in April and ordered a few more pails for areas where we probably did not apply it thick enough. Just wanted to share these photos with you.

      You have a great product here and we will be ordering for future jobs we have. We were a bit skeptical at first but when it was fully dry it looked as if we installed a new 15,000 sq piece of sheet EPDM.
