Roofs collect oils from asphalt, chimneys, and cars plus lots of dirt and dust. Coatings don’t stick well to any of these. That's why we sweep all the areas and powerwash with 3000 psi for a deep clean, once the dirt is remove, we clean some areas with TSP solution.
We repair and seal all roof penetrations, tears, open seams, etc. using Elastek Crack & Joint Sealant and reinforce with polyester roof fabric as necessary. In larger or deep ponding areas, apply Elastek Puddle Plaster to fill in areas that hold water.
We wait to apply coating when the roof is dry and the sealant has set, once is ready to work on we use a 9-inch heavy-duty frame, ½-inch paint roller for spreading coating on roof or 1-1/4-inch roller for dipping in pail, and a 5–to-6-foot extension pole, and a 3/4-inch roller with basecoats and emulsions. We normally map out the roof and make each pail fill that area.
Those areas hard to reach with the roller we use 3-inch or 4-inch brush and a stiff paintbrush for applying Crack & Joint Sealant. Topcoat should always be applied in a very thick coat, to achieve a rate of 100 sq. ft. per gallon, and a dry coating thickness of 10 mils. Two thin coats or one heavier coat may be used to achieve this result.
The benefits of using this products and having the roof in good condition is that you save money by lowering cooling costs up to 30%, also flexes up to 350% to resist cracking Silicone and improved waterproofing & adhesion.
Finally we do the last inspection and we remove everything from the premises.
