is this a properly done rubber roof?


Well you got me on that Im not very familar with the spray on "paint on" roof systems with the excepton of Topcoat that we have used on metal roofs. Yes I know there is a skill in torching, etc.. we have in our shop torch equipment, mop carts the whole bit just dont use it all that often . The trend in this part of the country is mostly EPDM. I would guess in your neck of the woods it may change eventully. we do a lot of roof maintenence and repairs and many modified roofs seem to be replaced after only a ten year life span. about the best one "if there is a best one" I have personaly seen would be Sopreama and also recall Derbigum and US intec. a lot of suppliers carry Ruberroid that we somtimes will use in repair work.
the EPDM has less seams, can expand with the freeze thaw cycle's, and has great flashing details,the seam tape makes an even better roof than the old EP-95 "black glue". there are rubber roofs that were done in the 1970's that are still good although many needed maintenence on the old neoprene uncured flashing that cracked. the only thing modified may be better on is a high trafffic roof or maybee one the seagulls like to bomb by dropping shells. I know we all have are preferences and in different parts of the country there are trends just as there are price diferences.

Happy Roofing To You

Happy roofing to you too, Jim.

My systems are not really "Paint on" They are polyurea. The system is very technical, but woth it. Polyurea, mil for mil is much stronger, harder, and flexible than any of the aforementioned single plies.

More akin to on site single ply manufacturing than the Topcoat paints. You aint getting a water-soluable reflective coating with this stuff, but a true vapor barrier (less than .75 perm). Highly chemical resistant. Approved for potable water systems. Formulations approved for FDA food contact. Formulations for high harness. Formulations for higher elongations. Tenacious bonding to steel, concrete, and wood (although in pull tests on wood, the wood experiences failure long beforethe memebrane). High puncture resistance. The perfect roofing membrane system.

I forgot to mention indefinite protection under standing water conditions. What, other than PVC can tout that?

Are PVC membranes available for immersion service? I am not sure.

Im not familar with that type of system, but Sarnafil PVC has been making a below grade waterproofing system for quite a while.

That is the one PVC system I have heard of for immersion service. They apparently line gunnite pools with it?
