Roofing manufacturer GAF offers multiple solutions for virtually any type of commercial roof. One of these is the HydroStop® PremiumCoat® Roof System, a liquid-applied acrylic elastomeric system for flat roofing applications. In the following video, your local roofing company Tango & Gatti shares an overview of how it is installed.
The HydroStop PremiumCoat Roof System can be installed over existing roofing systems, including single ply, built-up roofing (BUR), structural concrete and metal. It helps extend the lifespan of the existing roofs and adds features such as reflectivity, which helps improve energy efficiency and wind resistance.
As a liquid-applied product, the HydroStop PremiumCoat Roof System needs to be installed on a thoroughly cleaned and dried roof. Structural issues will need to be repaired first because everything will be sealed in once the HydroStop PremiumCoat Roof System is installed. Commercial properties that are due for roof replacement will need to be evaluated by a GAF certified contractor. An adhesion test will be performed beforehand to determine the type of primer needed.
The installation process is fairly simple. Once the roof has been thoroughly cleaned and dried, a primer is applied. A layer of HydroStop Foundation and Fabric will then be applied to joints, transitions, curbs, drains and anywhere the roof meets a wall. Depending on the roofing type, this can replace or complement roof flashing. The fabric needs to be incorporated into the foundation coat to create a proper seal. Care must be taken to ensure the fabric is fully embedded before it’s allowed to dry. Both primer and foundation are colored green to make it easy for the installers to find missed spots.
Once the foundation coat is dry and walkable, a final layer of HydroStop Finish will be applied using a brush roller or sprayer. The white finishing coat on top of the green foundation coat makes it easy for the installer to ensure proper coverage. It also improves roof reflectivity. A final quality check will be conducted before the job is pronounced complete. If installed properly, the HydroStop PremiumCoat Roof System can extend your commercial roof’s lifespan, improve its durability and help you save on your building’s cooling costs.
