Flat Roof Repair Advice


Thanks, will do. Wearing disposable everything and throwing it away when finished. Even the footwear.

Excited to get started...rainy all day today so need a break in the weather but I'm using today to get materials and stage everything and make a plan.

I love it when a plan comes together!!

Where do I get the resat brush you are talking about? Never heard of that?

Thanks

Flat Roof Repair Advice


Update - got all of my products and have the roof cleaned and prepped. Just waiting on dry weather for 48 hours before a day when I can work on it. After weeks of rain every other day it looks like we are going to have a 4 day stretch of dry here so this weekend is looking great. could probably start tomorrow.

How long should the primer dry before going on top of it with anything?

Thanks

Until it dries. Dry to the touch. It some times dries very quickly if it's in the sun, if it's in the shade it can take hours or longer.

A lot of the time we would prime then come back the next day.

Yes I am! Dig it? You didn't think that gig would last forever did you?

When I went to pick up the roofing materials I took the guys a bunch of high quality ice cream treats fresh made from the local place. I had asked them about the brushes by email the day before and got "We don't have any". When I was loading the suv up with my stuff the manager came out with two long bristle brushes and a handle, a half used big squeegee in good condition and some other stuff I needed. I was very grateful I didn't need to go to another roofing supply just for the one thing. I still am curious if I got the same thing as you are calling a resat brush. I couldn't find pics in google for that.

What you have will work fine, just work the primer and aluminum down into those fissures in the membrane by scrubbing transversely across the sheet. Perpendicular to the long dimension. Keep agitating that aluminum coating. Good Luck.

You got it, will do, thanks, I understand how important that is...that and the drying before hand are very important to strength and longevity of the bond.

Correct. The primer will eliminate any residual moisture, bind up any dust, and give a real "Grip" to the surface to which the aluminum can bond. You can just use your roller to mix the aluminum and work right out of the can. Dont even think about trying to clean your "utensils" just have a contractor trash bag ready when you finish.

Be careful, wet aluminum is slippery, so don't step in your work.

A boat? Hmm I go camping about every other weekend, but just bought a new camper so I can't get a boat yet. So what are you doing with your boat and trailer July 4th Weekend
