Our goal is to provide you an economically and environmentally responsible solution to repair and restore a flat, low slope or metal roof. In order to achieve that goal we must do the following:
First we must do a visual inspection of the roof to assess any noticeable weak spots or damage. If we do find an indication of water damage we then use a thermographic camera to determine the extent of the damage.
Before we can begin preparing the roof surface for the fluid-applied system we must remove and replace any wet insulation and roof materials. We have to make the roof sound and dry in order to effectively apply the coating.
Once the roof is sound we thoroughly pressure wash the surface to remove any dirt and debris that would compromise the adhesion of the coating to existing roof material.
We provide various options for your restoration depending on your needs and budget. Regardless of the products, the process is typically the same.
Now that the roof is prepared we are ready to install our new membrane. First, we stripe coat all of the seams, penetrations and edging to build up the strength of the weak spots in the existing roof material. We would stripe coat using up to 1/4" coat of urethane; Then we apply a base coat of the same urethane at up to 1/4" thick. This base coat provides a thick, redundant, hard surface base coating across the entirety of the roof. For our top coat, we apply a coat of selected coating (silicone, urethane, acrylic), depending on the customers needs and budget. The total dry thickness of the roof coating is can be applied as thick as necessary to meet the warranty requirements. Call today for a consultation so we can help find a solution to meet your budget and needs.
We will provide a customized maintenance plan to ensure the roof meets its useful life. In order to maintain the seamless membrane maintenance is necessary. Maintenance can be performed either by your staff or an Alaska Roof Restorations staff member. Any punctures or tears in the membrane must be fixed by applying a coat of silicone overtop. When properly maintained the roof coating will easily last the duration of its determined life. If you wish to extend the warranty we simply apply an additional layer of topcoat over the initial coating. This can be done over and over, essentially warrantying your roof for the life of the building.
