flat roof with iced up gutters


Ok, I'll clarify what I said: if you have new shingles on the roof and still have water issues, that is the only type of shingle project where you can remove the first 4-5' of shingles and then replace them without any real fade issues.

I never said we've installed ANY roofing. We install the radiant heating systems. We've worked with many roofers and installed over/under membrane, over/under shingles with both a fiber board and densdeck over the top, industrial, scholastic and residential applications and every one is working beautifully.

The posting asked for a remedy and I'm offering one. I'm not here to do battle with you.

No battles here. I am just offering you what I have learned from my experiance in the field and now in a office. Newer shingles I can see, 10 year old shingles . I am sure your product does what it claims. It is a very interesting idea. I just have to wonder about condensation on membrane roofs. Also about a build up on the gutter edge of a building. Using this post as the example. So the company you work for makes and installs the products? Can contractors buy them and install them? What about area reps and product support? I didnt not mean to come off as cross, I too was only offering a solution to thier problem.

Nope, we're their Master Distributor. You can buy the products from us at contractor pricing or you can be a stocking distributor from the manufacturer, Heatizon Systems in Utah. You can't buy direct from them unless you are a stocking distributor ($35k upfront), only through a stocking distributor.

We back up our sales with the technical assistance as do they. You can watch an installation video on our website under Installations, though under membrane installations are not specifically covered, the concept is the same as with asphalt shingle applications.

We don't recommend installing the system under old shingles as the Zmesh will last longer than the roof. Though, in one case, we had to have the shingles removed after installation as the roofer didn't ...."hear" what we instructed them to do. We were able to save the Zmesh because it was under the Ice and Water. New I&W had to be laid over the top again but it still saved the system.

I had another look around your website today. I didnt watch any of the video's though. I look around some more later. I like the under the wood floor idea. The wife wanted wood floors, now her poor feet are cold, she doesnt listen. What the hell do I know anyway. Im just glad I only did the dining room and kitchen and not the bedroom like she wanted.

Yup, Zmesh is pretty amazing stuff. We have a system for under metal too. You mentioned the height issue under membrane; yes, the added height has to be considered when constructing the roof prior to running the EPDM. The pictures of the roof on our site are of a 400' long roof that had a new membrane put down and we covered the last 4' to the drip edge. They had to build up to meet the 1/8" board they put over us. It works like a charm though.
