So in accordance with the secretary of Interior Standards for the treatment of of Historic Properties, wich reccomends "Reparing a roof by reinforcing the Historic Materials wich compromise roof features".
These guidelines emphasize repair and restoration over replacement of an entire roof when possible.
We at Ultimate Preservation also agree that this is the best approach.
So how do we do this? Is it cost effective?
Will it last?
We do this by using an elastomeric coating over the existing substate.
Elastomeric coating wich we use only the highest quality, are available in a wide range of colors including many historical colors, custom colors are also available.
PROTECTING THE ENVIROMENT!!
Ultimate Preservation is very concerned with our enviroment.
Oil and solvent coatings have caused much damage to our enviroment.
By using elastomeric coatings wich are considered a waterborne coating, it greatly reduces hazards to the enviroment.
It contains no flammable or hazardous solvent or oil to contaminate.
Also it greatly reduces volatile compounds.
For us the applicators is much healthier, we avoid breathing or handling dangerous solvents.
To top this it is RENEWABLE meaning you dont have to rip off the roof to start every 10 to 15 years. Just a simple recoat will extend the life undefinetely.
The enviroment will thank you!!
Each and every historic roof has it's own qualities. For this reason we inspect each one and decide wich system is right for the project.
We also offer preservation systems to complete restoration systems.
With our restoration systems we enbed a fabric mesh into the elastomeric coating while it is still wet. This Provides added strength.

ELASTOMERIC COATINGS ARE AVAILABLE IN ALL THIS COLORS.
