The area where most Flat roofs fail is at the seems. This is where an Elastomeric roof system is unique. They are seamless. How it works is that we first apply a coat of Elastomeric coating and while it is still wet we imbed a layer of fabric mesh and then a saturation coat. We then Follow the same procedure in an adjoining area and overlap the first area. We follow this process over the entire roof area. We Finnish the roof with two coats of Elastomeric coating.
This system is made to extend the life expectancy indefinitely of the roof. It can be applied over top of many preexisting roofs such as: Asphalt, metal, rubber, rolled, modified, bitumen, EPDM, built-up, TPO, PVC, BUR, Hypalon, hot tar, Polyureuthane foam. At the same time where necesary we can change the contour and pitch of the roof so as to promote better drainage and avoid pooling of water.
Another point of importance is the ability to take abrasion. We know that many flats roofs recieve foot traffic. With an elastomeric roof system this is not a problem. We have seen many roofs that our customers have used them as sitting areas without any problems.
In recent years we hear alot about white roofs or cool roofs. These are so popular since they keep the building much cooler. Elastomeric roofs are available in white.. This can drasticly reduce your cooling costs. The elastomeric white coat is highly reflective. So instead of absorbing the heat it reflects it.
The most important point for all of us is that a roof system makes economic sense. And this very true for an elastomeric roof system. This is because this system can be extended for many more years of use by a simple RECOAT. This requires minimal preparation.
List of advantages:
• Flexability under extreme temperatures
• Energy Savings through reflectablity
• UV Resistent
• Cost saving through recoatability
• Renewable roofing
• Abrasion Resistent
• Safer for environment
• Safer for aplicator
